Howie Architects is a professional practice based in Norfolk. Located in the city centre of Norwich, we work with clients in the Golden Triangle area of Norwich as well as across the county and beyond.

The team is led by Alastair Howie, who is highly experienced, leading a small team with a strong focus on sensitive contemporary design solutions.

Our practice has extensive capabilities in home adaptation including single and double-storey extensions, creating upper storeys for bungalows, conversions and re-modelling, as well as new-build and bespoke projects.

We have expertise in creating open-plan family spaces within existing or extended footprints and we have excellent 3D modelling capability that can let you see how the new design will work externally to integrate new and old as well as internally to give you a true feel for the quality of the space within.
