about us…

Good architecture requires good communication, concise brief analysis, design evolution and an understanding of buildable solutions. By doing this not only are we able to deliver creative and sustainable design solutions but we are also able to maximise the potential of every site.


CROE Architects can bring you a wealth of experience suitable for a variety of different projects. From the simple process of feasibility reports right through to construction processes, new technologies and final signoff of projects, CROE Architects are ideally placed to help you with any project.


While our previous experience includes commercial, hotels, retail, leisure, community and industrial, the current body of work is mainly residential, focusing predominately on the refurbishment and extensions of existing houses, including listed and conservation work, and design and project management of new builds, from single plots through to 10 and more.
