Base Architects' Conwy studio

23/10/19

We have opened a new office at the Riverside Business Park in Conwy to service and develop our growing portfolio of residential and commercial clients in North Wales. The new studio at Connaught House will complement our existing offices in Shrewsbury and Chester.

Base Architecture has been working in North Wales for several years but a steep rise in demand for our services in the past three years has led to the opening of the new studio. Current projects in North Wales include a development of 111 new homes including starter properties and affordable housing in Glan Conwy; high quality new build social housing in Gloddeath Street, Llandudno; and a design for up to 21 tourism lets in Anglesey.

Our clients in the region include Brenig Construction, one of North Wales' leading civil engineering and construction companies, Brenig Homes and Calon Homes.

Base Director Harry Reece said it was an exciting time of growth for the region and the firm.

"Conwy is a thriving area with a lot of development and investment going on, particularly along the A55 corridor through to Anglesey. The business landscape in North Wales is evolving rapidly and we want to be part of its future, bringing our creative design capabilities and high-end client service to both residential and commercial development. Conwy itself is at the heart of that so it was the ideal place for us to put down roots.

"We are keen to bring our creative approach to North Wales and have already made some great connections with other businesses that are as passionate as we are about creating a bright outlook for the region.

He added: "We look forward to being part of the innovative framework that shapes North Wales in the years to come."

As well as opening the new studio in Conwy, we have expanded our team with the recruitment of architect Alexandra Roberts, architect and chartered town planner Joe Salt, architectural technologist Joe Weigh and architectural assistants Yasmin Lokat (part II) and Emma Archer (part I). We now employ a team of 18 working across all three offices.
