About us

We are an award winning architectural practice based in West Sussex with a team of dedicated architects and a sister practice which handles commercial architectural design www.jameswellscommercial.co.uk.

JWA was established by James Wells who has over 30 years experience working with private and developer clients from the initial design stage through to completion of the works on site.

We are experienced in creating beautiful new homes, extending and remodelling existing properties and converting rural buildings for domestic use. We produce beautiful, award winning buildings at all levels of cost and for all types of location, whether it be in a town centre, Conservation Area or Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The practice also has considerable experience in town planning, listed building consent applications and conservation of buildings as well as interior design.

JWA team

Committed to considering the detailed requirements of all our clients, we seek to design buildings which complement and enhance their locations, paying particular attention to the immediate environment, landscape and history of the locality while carefully considering all opportunities of the site itself.

An integral part of this approach is our commitment to sustainability from design and detailing of the construction to the servicing of our buildings.

Based in central London for the first 20 years James moved the practice to Sussex in 2016. James has lived in Sussex for over 20 years and has run an award winning independent practice since 1995.
