It’s all in our name

When I set up Connected Architecture in 2017, I knew I wanted to create an architecture practice founded on warm, meaningful relationships and on fulfilling the desires of busy professionals with families, like me, who needed their homes to multi-task and be both practical and beautiful.

The biggest lesson I’d learnt from 13 years at London-based practice Jestico & Whiles, was that successful design is born out of close collaboration between an architect and their client. People I’d designed for over the years had often told me they valued the effort I made to get to know them.

By putting conversation at the heart of the process and actively listening to what clients need and want throughout a design project, I believe we have the edge in making our ideas work specifically for the individual – as well as more opportunity to demonstrate our skill, creativity and ingenuity.

Empathy and trust built through listening mean we can take the lead, challenge a client’s thinking, and help open their mind to new possibilities in order to make their aspirations a reality.

We really valued Bronwen’s advice and experience throughout the build… Communication was fundamental to driving the project through to completion on time and Bronwen manged this extremely well. As clients we always knew what was expected of us.  We are very happy with the end result


As well as listening to our clients, at Connected Architecture we also listen to the landscape and the people around us.

We’re rooted in our local environment, believing that fantastic design is underpinned by both sustainability and a sense of place.

We immerse ourselves fully in local planning policy and we love collaborating with other design professionals, building contractors and suppliers – building local networks that we know will benefit our clients and make a positive difference to the region.

This sense of conscious connection to all that really matters – people, place and planet – is what sets us apart.

We’d love it if you’d connect with us.

These are some of the awards we’ve won for our work.
