Architecture to Connect People and Place

We work closely and collaboratively with clients to understand their requirements and then meet these in exciting, beautiful and imaginative ways

Get Started on Your Project

“This place is flippin’ brilliant.  It’s a great credit

to the Architects for designing such a low impact treehouse.”

Kevin McCloud, Grand Designs


We help demystify the process


We find that many people don’t fully understand what an architect actually does.  We try and be as transparent as possible about the way we work – guiding you through the process step by step.  Every project and every client are different, meaning that the process is slightly different every time.  We share what we have learnt on other projects and aim to bring people along with the process.



Bring plans to life with Virtual Reality


At Millar Howard Workshop we are one of the first architecture practices in the country to extensively integrate virtual reality into our design process.

We can provide all our clients with a fully immersive, virtual reality tour of their proposed building. This gives them a true sense of the scale and proportion of the spaces. 



We partner with people who share our values


Buildings come about through collaboration and shared endeavor.  Whether clients, employees, work experience students or other consultants we encourage collaborative working and highly value peoples expertise.  We are approachable and informal yet highly organised and professional. 


Committed to Sustainability

At Millar Howard Workshop, we have a strong ethical aim to seek out opportunities to increase biodiversity as well as developing projects / buildings that create a net gain to the client, community and place. Sustainability is embedded holistically into our design approach and we design buildings that sit sensitively and lightly within their landscape, enhancing rather than taking from the environment.

In close consultation with our clients and other consultants, we look at a whole range of relevant considerations from energy generation, lowering CO2 emissions, minimising energy consumption, creating healthy buildings, using natural materials, air quality, transport, light pollution, community issues, safety and opportunities for increased natural biodiversity and habitat creation. Millar Howard Workshop is committed to achieving the targets set out in the RIBA 2030 Climate Challenge.

Planning Success Rate

Find land to build on

One of the biggest barriers to building your own house can be finding land with planning permission or the potential for permission.  Our sister company – Livedin Custom Build – helps connect landowners with people who want to build their own house.
