About Me

Graham Stewart Architect

Practice Profile:

Graham Stewart Architect is an RIBA Chartered Practice, offering professional experience and expertise in the following

  • design of buildings in their environment,
  • project management and
  • interior design.

My priority is the design of buildings and extensions which are appropriate for their use, meeting the needs of the owners, within an agreed financial budget.

From the first meeting with clients my aim is to work towards providing caring and sustainable solutions to project aspirations.

Graham Stewart Architect has been involved with a large number of projects, ranging in size and financial budget from large, new commercial buildings to small, bespoke extensions. The different types of building include both smaller and larger domestic renovations and extensions, loft conversions, new houses and apartments, extensions to schools, new commercial offices, and renovating (often listed) buildings owned by local church or charitable organisations.
