Robin Nugent Architects is an RIBA Chartered Practice operating out of studios in West Sussex and Devon. The practice was founded by Robin Nugent in 1986, now a team of seven professionals.

The practice specialises in conservation, repair and reuse of historic buildings and the design of new buildings within the setting of Heritage Assets and Conservation Areas and assist in the taking care of Listed buildings and historic environments across the South and in the South-West of England. Works include; alterations and additions to private houses and estate buildings, the reuse of castles and forts, the reordering of churches to manage the now widely accepted need to enhance a place of community gathering and many other built structures whose architectural, archaeological or historical value are recognised by inclusion in the Statutory List.

In addition, these skills are applied to many non-Listed and non-historic projects and we are keen to discuss and explore any scale of project with you.

Robin Nugent Architects is a practice of Chartered Architects and designers with supporting disciplines to provide a comprehensive service. Our objective is to provide imaginative design solutions to clients’ briefs borne out of many years of experience of their needs, site challenges and team co-ordination of associated professional disciplines.

We offer a traditional professional service with an emphasis on client and consultant relationship, providing a personal service by qualified, experienced staff with whom the client is invited to act directly.
