Architects in Thirsk

Architects in Thirsk

Native Architects is a multi-award-winning architectural practice established for over 25 years specialising in delivering well designed buildings that are sensitive to their locality and constructed with natural, renewable and sustainable materials.

We don’t just say our buildings are sustainable; we know that they are, and we pride ourselves as being both innovators and pioneers with an overriding guiding ambition to design inspirational buildings that have minimal environmental impact.

We aspire to create the healthiest internal environment for your property; we advocate construction methods that avoid the use of plastics, toxic chemicals and materials manufactured using fossil fuels, and specify hemp, straw, lime and timber for their low embodied carbon, and natural, breathable qualities. We understand that true sustainable construction considers the embodied carbon of building materials as well as the amount of energy a building uses every day. Our ‘fabric first’ approach involves a considered response to the site, the environment and the unique surroundings of each project.

We specialise in the conservation, restoration and refurbishment of listed buildings and those in difficult heritage contexts, including Conservation Areas and National Parks. We specialise in highly sustainable new houses and commercial buildings, again focussing on a fabric first approach using materials that support good internal air quality resulting in healthy living and working environments for their owners and users.

Our approach to environmental sustainability has resulted in winning numerous design and construction awards for our building projects including residential, leisure, commercial and historic buildings.  Whilst winning awards is not our ambition they do reinforce the fact that our practice is at the top end of what you will find across our region.

We have delivered significant architectural projects in Thirsk and the surrounding villages. These projects include:

  • Working on a historic and listed building in Easingwold Market Place as well as a new contemporary extension in Easingwold using York Handmade bricks.
  • Complete renovation of a farmhouse and extensions at Boltby in the North York Moors National Park.
  • Renovation and retrofitting of a farmhouse to include a home office and studio at Nether Silton in Hambleton District of North Yorkshire.
  • Working on historic and listed buildings in Great Thirkelby with the creation of a new contemporary timber framed extension which is complete and a second phase of works which includes a natural swimming pool with an outdoor kitchen and landscaping.
  • An extension and full house refurbishment on the Main Street in Coxwold which includes a large conservatory/orangery in the rear garden.
