“everyday materials transformed into something magical”
Burd Haward Architects is an award-winning design-led RIBA Chartered Architectural Practice with a broad and original body of work. Set up by Catherine Burd & Buddy Haward in 1998, the practice has developed a reputation for making carefully crafted, authentic, sustainable buildings and spaces: our work has gained critical acclaim for its conceptual clarity, structural simplicity and rigorous approach to material and detail.
We enjoy working across a diverse range of building types, from arts, ecclesiastical and community spaces, to schools and housing. All our projects are bespoke and are finely tuned to their use and setting. Many are located in historically significant, environmentally sensitive or listed landscape locations and involve interventions to Grade I & Grade II* listed buildings.
We are adept at leading the design process from inception to completion and work closely with our clients, local authorities and other design & construction professionals to develop solutions that make the most of all available opportunities. We are able communicators and creative, analytical problem solvers, and place high value on maintaining excellent constructive working relationships. As a small practice Catherine and Buddy are closely involved at all stages of all projects, well supported by a flexible and experienced team.
