Guildford Architects

George & James Architects are contemporary designers, based locally to Guildford

We start every project with a simple architectural mission: to create a place that starts with you – a happy, healthy place that is kind to you and kind to the planet. 


Architects for Guildford and Surrey

We are very lucky to work from an old, refurbished pumping shed in Midhurst, West Sussex, close to the boarder of Surrey and Guildford. After many years living and working in central London, we really appreciate and relish this location, and love having our design studio set in this beautiful location close to our home in West Sussex.

As a team we have a large variety of design experience from working on a great mix of projects, from private residential homes, including new build, sympathetic renovations and transformative extensions; multiple unit housing schemes; commercial retail and office designs; we have even worked on a public library scheme and the high-end retail store.

The different perspectives and experiences of the team bring a great deal to the design process, we love bouncing ideas off each other and putting our heads together over a challenge.

Before we start any project, we listening intently to our clients before we do anything else. We come to each project with open eyes and ears, and with honesty, curiosity and care. To this we add our in-depth professional architectural knowledge and design experience, all of which inspires us and pushing each design a little further.

We work on a variety of project types and believe that every building we design should make you feel good, no matter what the type of building - your home, work, cafe or museum. We believe that architectural design should be simple and functional, beautiful yet understated.

Our local experience

We enjoy working close to our home in Midhurst, and are working on several design projects right on our doorstep. But we also like to keep our horizons wide, and we have architectural projects in many corners of London and the South East. In fact, if it’s the right project and the right client, we’ll work almost anywhere.

Our clients tell us we're calm, attentive, full of ideas, and a joy to work with – they love what we do, and they also love the way we do it.
