People + Place Architects is an RIBA Chartered practice dedicated to putting people and place at the heart of architecture.

We design for you.


Phil Simpson, Principal

I have a very hands on approach to architecture, both literally and figuratively and love working together with people to turn their dreams into reality

I always use hand drawing as part of the design process and feel it is essential to connect to the subconscious brain’s creativity.

So you get original, bespoke design solutions together with sketches or photomontage images to help you understand how your place will feel. (You can see examples of my drawings and models on our pinterest page.)

All my projects move back and forth from hand drawing to computer drawing right up to the project’s completion, to ensure the creativity in design is matched by the accuracy in the build.

Because I also love getting out on site to oversee the works and check your project is progressing properly. With the benefit of having completed my own self-build renovations and small developments projects, I still relish getting my boots dirty.

I look forward to working with you.
