We are a young, dynamic and vibrant, design led architectural practice. Founded in 2020 by Nathaniel Morris, we are proud of the personal service that we provide, always at hand every step of the way.
We are truly a family run business, with a core team of diverse architects, technicians and designers. We have also forged strong working relationships with a multi-disciplinary team of experts throughout the construction industry (from planning consultants & ecologists to building contractors and landscape gardeners) to ensure that we can co-ordinate your project from inception right through to completion.
We are focussed on delivering architectural solutions with sustainability at their core, irrespective of the scale or budget of each individual project. Taking account of environmental factors we aim to conceive smart designs, utilising innovative technologies to ensure that our buildings minimise any harm (and in an ideal case positively contribute) to the local community and wider environment.
Nathaniel Morris BA(Hons)
After graduating from the University of Kent in 2012 Nathaniel spent some time in the South East gaining a thorough grounding in the technicalities of the construction industry. First taking up a post as a CAD technician for a steel fabricator, primarily producing working drawings and bending schedules for both cut and bent steel rebar and pre-fabricated units such as ground beams, pile cages, pile caps etc. During his time there Nathaniel was fortunate enough to be involved with the design, manufacture and delivery of the pile cages for the New American Embassy in central London, as well as the reinforced concrete rings for the New Crossrail project in central London.
Nathaniel also spent some time working as a roof truss designer for a national timber engineering company and is fully conversant with roof design and timber engineering.
Since relocating to the South West, Nathaniel has worked for several architectural practices before founding Morris Architectural Design Ltd and has a wealth of experience of all things residential, with a particular knowledge for rural architecture. He has extensive experience with barn conversions, particularly Class Q permitted development rights.
Nathaniel is also a member of the Design Review Panel. The Design Review Panel comprises a group of independent, multi-disciplinary construction professionals working in the field of the built environment.
The Panel provides impartial expert advice to applicants and local authorities on design issues in relation to important new development schemes and proposals for important public spaces, including both significant minor applications, major planning applications and pre-application development proposals
When not working (rarely) Nathaniel likes to fill his time enjoying the Devonshire countryside and coast with his young family, and particularly enjoys spending time up on Dartmoor or visits to the North Devon coast.
