Susan Room (Director)

Are you looking for an Architect who can create striking, practical spaces in which you will want to live, work, relax and entertain? Spaces which will make you say ‘wow’ when you walk into them and which are flexible to accommodate your changing needs.

That's our passion at jhd Architects. 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.

We are a successful Kent architecture firm specialising in modern architecture for clients in Kent, Sussex, Surrey and 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.

We use free 3D walk-through software so that you can walk around and inside a 3D model of your building to make sure it's what you want before the expensive construction work starts. You can share and review the 3D design at your leisure - at home and/or on the move, all at no cost, on any computer, laptop or tablet.

We create a virtual building, before work starts on site, to speed up construction, improve cost control and minimise costly mistakes during construction.
