Residential Architects

Housing is a basic human need. More than a physical structure, housing gives us shelter and security.

A home provides a safe place to bring up our families, socialise, store our valued possessions. It’s a place where we can work and create memories.

It is our purpose to provide homes that improve the wellbeing and living standards of people across all ages and walks of society.

Residential design encompasses many disciplines, explore our areas of expertise below:

Don’t move, Improve! Adding an extension or room in the roof can be a cost effective method of gaining more space and upgrading your home to suit your needs.


A change of use of a building such as a barn or church to residential use provides wonderful opportunities to create unique homes.

The service from WDA was very professional and their helpful advice and guidance enabled me to decide on a design which I was happy with and which was also achievable.
