Local to you?

Our award-winning practice is based in the village of Cowling, North Yorkshire, sitting between Skipton, Keighley and Colne. We tend to serve the Yorkshire Dales, Bradford district, parts of East Lancs and the Forest of Bowland.

However, we’re more than happy to work anywhere in the UK if you’d like to give us a try. We’ve worked on great projects as far away as Colvend in Dumfriesshire and Poole in Dorset.


How we work

Every site, client and brief is different, so we don’t have a set ‘style’ but we DO have a standard approach to projects. That means providing each and every client with a bespoke and personal service, tailored to fit their needs.

We usually charge a fixed fee, agreed with you at the start of the project, but we can also offer an hourly rate if that better suits the project and your needs.

We’re always available to answer your questions. We pledge to keep all invoicing transparent and to always let you know upfront if an additional cost implication arises. That way, you don’t have to worry about receiving any unexpected bills.

We’d consider it a privilege to work with you. Most of our business comes to us through recommendations and we are proud of our reputation as a friendly, accessible team.

Our vision

Why “Planet Architecture”?

The name reflects our commitment to producing beautiful buildings that do not cost the earth – and we mean this both literally and figuratively. We believe it’s our responsibility to design in the most economical manner possible, both to protect your purse and at the same time, reduce the carbon footprint wherever possible.

We’ll do this by carefully considering the materials to be used and creating an environmentally-friendly, holistic design.
