About Us

TO CREATE UPLIFTING BUILDINGS THAT REFLECT OUR CLIENTS’ ASPIRATIONS AND INCORPORATE SUSTAINABLE DESIGN

Cowan Architects is an established practice offering innovative design solutions combined with a high level of personal service from experienced and enthusiastic staff. We work closely with our clients to ensure their design requirements are met and take pride in our professional, practical and creative approach.

The Practice was established by the current Chairman, David Cowan, in 1983 and the main office is based in East Grinstead, West Sussex. Whilst we predominantly serve London, the South East and Home Counties, our Architect Expert Witness’ work covers the whole of the UK, Ireland and internationally. We have significant experience across many sectors, including developer residential, healthcare, education, sports and leisure, home-owner residential, conservation, commercial, inclusivity and sustainability.

A proven track record for residential and healthcare work has resulted in an additional speciality, with the practice being recognised as one of the leading architectural firms for inclusive design. A product of this reputation is that 6 of our Architects now act as Expert Witnesses on disability needs in High Court cases.

As well as being registered Chartered Architects we are also SCA, AABC, AECB and Passivhaus Trust members and listed on the “Green Register”. We contribute to The Architects for Health Executive Committee and are registered as Client Design advisors for Education and Master Planning. We also have approved architects on a number of Diocese Advisory Committees (DAC) including: Canterbury, London, Rochester, Winchester, Chichester & Portsmouth.
