With a complete passion for Architecture it was an easy decision to create David Herbert Architects – established in 2010.

Point of Difference

David Herbert Architects are proud to provide all clients with a complete direct and personal approach throughout every stage of the project.


As a practice we are registered with the Architects Registration Board, and the RIBA, being classified as an RIBA Chartered Practice.

Our Story

David Herbert, being passionate about buildings and Architecture from an early age, was always destined to be an Architect.  From school, David Herbert went to pursue his love of buildings by studying Architecture at the University of Portsmouth in 1995 and graduated in 2001 with Distinction. Following employment with a few multi disciplinary practices, to further understand the world of being an Architect, and to simply learn more about buildings it seemed a natural progression to form David Herbert Architects Ltd.

The practice was founded in 2010, and we were happy to have celebrated in recent times, 10 years of being an RIBA Chartered Practice. We have thoroughly enjoyed the journey so far and the projects we have designed and completed. We are continually inspired by the work we do, the world around us, and remain excited by the prospect of what lies ahead.

Our Approach

Our approach to every project we are commissioned to complete is initially to fully understand the clients brief, their objectives, and the dream of what they are hoping to eventually realise. From initial meetings we explore options to ensure best possible solutions are reached – equally understanding through experience, schemes that will have a strong chance of being approved.  During the design process, conversation and dialogue we feel are essential, and are the essence of how we work. 

We have a love of modern architecture, and the works of 20th Century Architects – this has continued to flourish from University days, inevitably influencing our work. Our passion remains, and we will follow this path if the project allows. We do of course approach each project on its own merits, the site, outlook and surrounding architecture, and are always respectful of work that has proceeded us.

Our Mission

Our mission has always remained simple: listen, design, build and deliver high quality projects  ultimately exceeding clients expectations. With a direct and personal approach on every project, clients needs and wishes are balanced with the opportunities presented, good design as well as the constraints we inevitably have to work with.

The creation of a well designed and considered space, can truly enhance the users life. Interaction with the natural elements, such as sun, light, water and nature, which may include views from and within the site, all contribute to the creation of a successful place. The key main elements are always in our thoughts during our design process, and it is our aim to simply indulge in these. 

We endeavour to create beautiful buildings, appreciated on completion and beyond…..timeless.
