Alex Oliver Associates is a Royal Institute of British Architects Chartered Architectural Practice with extensive experience in the conservation, restoration and adaptation of historic buildings, alongside the design of new buildings in sensitive locations. We have extensive experience in the design of country homes and high-end residential projects. Our focus is to create beautiful, well-crafted architecture, which is sympathetic to its surroundings, and which will stand the test of time.
The common thread in our architecture is the sensitivity and awareness of the context in which we are working. In all our projects, we perform a rigorous analysis of client objectives, site characteristics and local context together with innovative thinking, creativity and a multitude of experience. Our architecture exhibits the outcome of this rigour.
We are passionate about our work and take great pride in our ability to create fine architecture and environments through clarity of design, awareness of scale, and the elegance of clean harmonious proportions that will be cherished and enjoyed for generations to come. Our buildings value tradition while reflecting contemporary life.
The practice has a successful and longstanding history of working on schemes in protected areas such as Conservation Areas, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and UNESCO World Heritage Sites as well as working on listed buildings. When working with historic buildings and within historic environments, Alex Oliver Associates use their knowledge and experience to make a careful assessment of context and scale. In this way they establish an informed dialogue between the character and nature of the existing built fabric and setting and the proposed design solution.
