Anthony Swaine Architecture Ltd has a long established reputation as an architectural practice specialising in the care of historic buildings and traditional design in the historic context.
The practice operates out of offices in one of the former Bastion towers that once formed part of the medieval walls of the city of Canterbury, but is a modern practice which works across southern England and in London.
The practice was originally set up by Anthony Swaine in 1945 and has, over the years, specialised in historic buildings. Anthony Swaine Architecture Ltd was established in 2011 to continue the traditions of the practice.
Our specialisms are in traditional and classical design, works to historic buildings, timber framed structure, both existing and new, building repair and new construction and urban design in the historic context. We have a particular interest in shopfronts and traditional joinery detailing.
We offer the full range of architectural services from concept planning through to contract administration and the overseeing of construction from beginning to end, so as to ensure that the care in the design is also realized in the finished project.
We undertake a variety of schemes for both private clients and developers and although we specialise in historic buildings we also produce designs for more contemporary projects and interventions, bringing the same care of detail to modern design.
The office prides itself on the quality of drawings it produces for planning design, historic detailing and building regulations.
