Ashleigh Clarke Architects

Cotswold Architects

“Being a Cotswold architect, I love the beauty and the artistic freedom that the landscape brings. It inspires me every day to design what I love most – a client’s perfect home.”

Ashleigh Clarke, Founder and Architect


Our ambition is to be the best Cotswolds architects. No architectural building exists in a vacuum; it forms part of the existing landscape. In our case, the landscape is one of the most beautiful, inspiring landscapes in the country. With extensive parts of the region designated as Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, we must always design with the colours and contours of the Cotswolds front of mind. We are green architects, committed to sustainable residential architecture.

Many of our projects involve the renovation or extension of existing traditional buildings so a thorough, practical grounding in additional conservation and heritage regulations from tree preservations to ecological surveyors is vital.

We have a network of experts in all aspects of heritage conservation. We are recommended partners with The Heritage Advisory.

“Sustainable residential architecture is an increasingly important topic. We reduce the environmental impact of a new build through the entire process until the client walks through the front door for the first time.”

Ashleigh Clarke, Founder and Architect

Rejuvenating, calming. Designed for living.

Everybody knows what ‘soulless architecture’ is. We put our heart and soul into making every building, extension or renovation a space that you’ll want to be. A picture window that inspires you every time you look out. A school that inspires your children to be the best they can be. It can be on a grand scale, or a clever remodelling of space. Simple, brilliant solutions are as pleasing as ambitious, innovative architectural designs.

Extension to Historical Building, Cotswolds

We have been commissioned to work on alterations and extensions to this Cotswolds building. As with any historical building in a conservation area, the architectural design needs to be sensitive to the surrounding landscape and sympathetic to the existing structure of the original building.

"Ashleigh has done the Building Regulation and Construction drawings for an extension on a Cotswold stone cottage. We found him very friendly and easy to work with. We provided a sketch of what we wanted, and he drew up the plans exactly as we wanted them. "

I have a Listed Building, who should I go to for architectural advice?

As Cotswold based architects, we are specialists in alterations to Listed Buildings Grades I and II. Many of our projects are either Listed or Heritage sites and we offer expert professional advice on sympathetic, architectural alterations to traditional Cotswold buildings. Ashleigh Clarke works in close collaboration with The Heritage Advisory.
