Waterside Architects Ltd was formed in 2008 with the merging of Chilton Waters and Stutchbury and Ichthus Architects Ltd.
Waterside Architects believe that successful architecture is a synthesis of many parts which make up the ‘whole’ and that ‘whole’ should always be greater than the sum of the parts. Waterside Architects recognise that every project is unique, having its own specific parameters, and therefore its own unique solution. We believe that the most successful solutions come from a meaningful dialogue with the Client, and the practice is committed to serving the Client’s requirements in terms of design, budget and method of procurement, offering a range of full professional services in accordance with the RIBA Plan of Work 2013 - see section: SERVICES. The practice has an interest in new-build as well as conservation - indeed a glance at our portfolio will reveal a ‘broad church’ of design work. The director has experience in Conservation work and has Conservation Registrant status with the RIBA.
Sustainable design is part of our approach, ensuring that only timber forested from renewable sources are used, and that local materials are used wherever possible, cutting down transportation, and therefore carbon emissions, to a minimum. We also strongly advocate the use of passive and PV solar systems in our work.
Personal influences include, Charles Rennie Macintosh, CFA Voysey, Frank LLoyd Wright, Antonio Gaudi and the Arts and Crafts Movement, as well as an interest in the work of Le Corbusier, Oscar Niemeyer, Erich Mendelsohn, Serge Chermayeff, Hans Scharoun, Eero Saarinen, Giancarlo De Carlo, Giovanni Michelucci, Gio Ponti, Sir Leslie Martin, Alvar Aalto, Ralph Erskine, Richard Rogers, Alvaro Siza, and Rafael Moneo as well as engineer / architects Eladio Dieste, Felix Candela, Santiago Calatrava and Pier Luigi Nervi.
