jhd Architects is a successful Kent architecture firm. We specialise in modern architecture for private clients in Kent, Sussex, Surrey and Greater London. Our projects include contemporary new house design, traditional and listed building extensions, alterations, basements, swimming pools and outdoor living spaces, leisure facilities and care homes particularly designed for dementia and disabled access.

According to a recent survey by the NBS, we are one of only 5% of UK construction professionals using 3D BIM design technology to speed up construction, improve cost control and minimise costly mistakes on-site. This technology also allows us to upload to our client's PC, Mac, tablet, iPad or other Android device a 3D model of their building which they can 'walk around', share and review at their leisure - at home and/or on the move.

Our passion is for creating striking, practical spaces in which to live, work, relax and entertain. Spaces which make people say ‘wow’ when they walk into them and which are flexible to accommodate our clients’ changing needs. Maximising the potential for luxury, light, space and energy-savings, we have a strong track record for discretely integrating ‘green’ technology, and for obtaining planning permission, particularly in areas where restrictions are tight.
