We are architects located in the historical town of Totnes, alongside the River Dart within the beautiful district of the South Hams, in the South West of Devon. We work on building projects across the whole of the South West. Commissions range from house alterations and repairs to Listed and Historic Buildings through to new builds with modern contemporary or traditional designs. These projects vary from private dwellings to larger residential and commercial developments.

Within this range of projects we have created bespoke design solutions for disabled living, ranging from new purposed built homes to significant remodelling of existing property.

Architectural Conservation matters and, EJW Architects are the foremost Conservation Architects in South Devon, addressing projects from remedial works and alterations to major restoration and refurbishment through to large building additions in accordance with conservation philosophy principles.  We are passionate about creating new life in old buildings.

If you have a project you would like to discuss, it doesn’t need to be a conservation based one, please email or telephone to arrange to meet  for a coffee and free consultation at our offices.

As professional designers, do not believe that one architectural style fits all and, approach each project pragmatically, with each client, each project and each site, all having their own individual requirements, resulting in a range of successful architectural solutions to meet varying demands.
