About Us

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  full range of 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. He is also a Christian, and upholds Christian principles in the practice.

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.
