Cowan Architects is an established practice offering innovative design solutions coupled 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 personal approach.

The Practice was established by the current Chairman, David Cowan, in 1983 and is based in East Grinstead, West Sussex. Whilst we work throughout the UK and have experience in Europe and the US, we serve predominantly the South East and Home Counties. We have significant experience across many sectors, including developer residential, healthcare, home-owner residential, commercial and industrial with project values ranging from £100k to £10m. 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 five 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 listed on the “Green Register” having undertaken relevant training to demonstrate our commitment to sustainable building practices.



To create uplifting buildings that reflect our clients’ aspirations and incorporate sustainable design.
