Hitchcock Architects are located in Lower Sunbury, Middlesex. We are conveniently positioned just off the M3 (A316), and a 10 minute walk from Sunbury train station.
The practice was started in 2012 by Andrew Hitchcock. Andrew is a fully qualified ARB registered architect and experienced in projects of all sizes and types from initial concept design through to building on site.
The majority of Hitchcock Architects work is in South West London, although we also have projects in Suffolk and work in partnership with SJ Hitchcock Ltd (Builders). Due to the size of the practice the majority of our work is residential and includes new build houses, refurbishment, alterations and extensions. However, in time Andrew hopes to take on projects in other sectors.
We believe that good design, working closely and being open and honest with our clients and builders is the key to success, and should provide ongoing referrals and repeat commissions.
Ideally we like to see our designs through to the completion of building work on site, however we are happy to work one stage at a time so clients do not have to make a large commitment from the outset.
We like to combine traditional locally sourced materials with new or innovative materials, and contrast contemporary design and technology with traditional building techniques where appropriate.
We do not impose design solutions on people and like to be flexible and open minded in our approach. We enjoy working with each individual client to find the right design to suit them, their building, or site.
