Maack Architects is a specialist practice focusing on Architecture, Sustainable Development, Environmental Design and Project Management.

We design buildings to be in tune with how we actually live and work. We want our clients to feel uplifted by and at one with their surroundings, and we do this through our use of beautiful materials, natural light, intelligent environmental design, crafted detailing, and elegant exteriors which work in context.

Whether it is an innovative new build home in a tight urban site, or a Passivhaus refurbishment in a beautiful rural setting, we guide our clients through all the project stages, and bring our expertise in achieving planning permission in all kinds of locations.
