Practice Profile

Morgan Carey Architects have established a sound reputation for contextual design, working within very special and conservation environments, balancing sensitivity of design with commercial reality.

We operate from a purpose built studio bristling with electronic gadgetry but still hanging on to our drawing boards.

Our client base is wide and varied including private developers, landed estates, local authorities, charitable trusts, sporting and social clubs, breweries, manufacturers and private individuals. We insist upon quality, obtain huge job satisfaction and seek to infect others with the same enthusiasm.
