Our Work

Ethos Our Approach Our Work Our Clients Collaborations Awards Who we are

Native Architects are involved in unusual and inspiring projects across a range of sectors and scales and broadly divided into two main categories.

Firstly, Heritage – works to Listed Buildings and those in difficult heritage contexts, including Conservation Areas and National Parks.

Secondly, Environmentally Sustainable Design – working with natural materials such as hemp and straw to design inspiring and truly sustainable low energy buildings.

Within those categories our work can be broken down as below.

Individual Houses and Extensions – domestic projects for private clients, providing design and project management services from concept design through to construction and handover.

Barn Conversions – refurbishing and converting existing buildings into new uses, including Class Q permitted development projects for new dwellings and Class R permitted development conversions to flexible business uses.

Rural Housing – working with Community Land Trusts to provide affordable housing schemes in remote locations, including the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors National Parks.

Commercial rural diversification – rural office buildings, farm shops, restaurants and wedding venues, children’s play as well as multi-purpose master planning schemes for individual businesses, farmers and large rural estates.

Tourism and Leisure – new lodge parks and holiday cottages, assisting with master planning and applications to achieve Planning Consent.

Health and Wellbeing – outside gym, swimming and landscape projects to foster good mental and physical health.

If you have any projects that fit into these categories (or not!) or are just looking for some inspiration, Native would be excited to meet you and explore what could be possible!
