Practice Profile

Founded in 2010, Vivid Architects is dedicated to the delivery of bespoke, inspiring, adaptable and carefully crafted buildings and spaces to meet our clients’ aspirations both now and in the years to come.   With over 40 years’ experience between us, we offer a full range of design services including masterplanning and urban design, conceptual work, detailed and construction information.

Building on our experience of larger practices with complex schemes and demanding briefs, Vivid Architects has been created to deliver a more personal service to our clients, yet with no less commitment to professionalism and vision.  Our goal is to listen carefully first, and to interpret the brief creatively, developing the design in partnership with the client to deliver more than they had hoped for, both on time and on budget.

Our project experience spans award winning residential, education, leisure and commercial work, from bespoke domestic extensions to city centre masterplanning over several hectares, or the delivery of commercial buildings achieving the highest environmental standards.  We have extensive experience of working in Conservation Areas and with Listed Buildings, achieving planning and listed building consents for sensitive restoration projects, and beautiful contemporary buildings creatively positioned alongside the historic fabric.

In addition to these broad areas of design, David was Chairman of the Worcestershire Society of Chartered Architects 2013-15, and tutored part-time at Birmingham City University for over 10 years, with particular expertise in green issues and environmental design.  He is also a member of the Expert Panel for MADE (Midlands Architecture & Designed Environment), whilst Sandy was previously appointed as a member of their Design Enabling Panel.

We are pleased to offer complete flexibility of design services to provide full or partial design to meet our client’s particular requirements, including:

  • Masterplanning
  • Conceptual Design
  • Design for Detailed Planning Approval
  • Full Architectural Services
  • Land Evaluation Sketch Designs
  • Sustainability Advice
  • Technical Design
  • 3D Images

Where appropriate we may also be able to assist in the appointment of other consultants or to provide a ‘One-Stop Shop’ for the Design Team.

Vivid Architects offers a personal service that many larger companies simply cannot, whilst providing a breadth of experience and knowledge that comparable practices would struggle to achieve.
