Charity Architects. We Understand.

We work with you and with your ideas. We listen and learn of your hopes (and sometimes even you fears). What you don’t want and what you do want. Our experience becomes your experience. You share our knowledge.  Together we make a plan.

You can see and feel the plans take shape. The ideas we discussed and the concepts we created are now shaped and made solid. You will be given answers not questions; you will feel involved not isolated; we work on creating for you the innovative, imaginative, design-led solutions you want.

With all the details agreed, you can now watch as your project really comes alive. We work for you with everyone involved on site and off: planning departments, contractors, engineers, builders. They all want clarity. They all want consistency. Our reputation means that you know your project is in safe hands. With our award-winning track record as residential architects the whole team working for you is responsible, accountable, professional. We deliver.


You need an architect who has the right experience.

As a charity client you want a safe pair of hands. Every project is different and you want an architect who has the right experience. You might want innovative designs; you might need creative solutions.

At the early stages you might need advice on project costs, viability and timescales. You might need information for trustees’ meetings and fundraising campaigns. You do not need to worry about planning departments, building regulations or health and safety. We will sort it all for you.

Nick and his team helped us from the get go in assessing the viabilty of a number of sites before we finally honed down on what will be our home for years to come in Old Malton. Nick was always there to ensure the project ran smoothly, and he tackled any problems head on to ensure the successful delivery of the project.

Common FAQs

  • We are not quite sure what we need, how can Townscape help?

    The first thing you get is a free, no commitment, one hour consultation. You get to ask us all the questions you might have, and we will ask you any that we have. Very quickly we will both have a full understanding of the outline of your project and can decide how to work in the best way to meet all your requirements.

  • We have budget considerations, how do Townscape take this into account?

    There is no point developing wonderful plans that are not financially viable. When you work with Townscape you get advice on likely costs and potential budget implications at every stage. Your project is kept on track with budget profiles in place from day one. No surprises, full control.

  • Our business is growing, is any commercial job too small for Townscape?

    For Townscape to truly add value to your project, and to give you the best possible return on your investment, we usually work on commercial projects with budgets starting from £100k. We are flexible, and always happy to talk about potential projects, so pick up the phone or send us an email. Get in touch and we will see what we can do for you.

  • What services do Townscape offer to commercial clients?

    Long before any plans are needed, Townscape can help you with your potential projects. From advice on site purchase and initial feasibility studies, through to providing reports on viability and anticipated return on investment, we help make you sure that your project is going to be a sound commercial venture.
