TRADITIONAL ARCHITECTURE & PLACEMAKING

Over the past 30 years Clague Architects have completed many new-build projects which celebrate regional variation in their architecture and approach. These projects continue to settle well in their context with the passing years, in a manner that existing communities can embrace and call their own.

Place and Context are paramount to us. Our Practice headquarters are based in the historic centre of Canterbury and we are regularly entrusted with working in historic settings, precious landscapes and in places of varied character throughout the UK and abroad.

We aspire to understand, safeguard and improve the places where we work so that as well as helping them to grow and meet changing needs, we reinforce their character and sense of place. Central to this is regional variation which we’ve been exploring and celebrating in our architecture for decades.

We delight in opportunities to work with enlightened clients developing sensitive architectural responses to places of varying character, that will fit comfortably in their context and look as though they were always there.

Whether on private homes, small infill sites within Conservation Areas or on larger strategic allocated housing sites, we love to analyse and explore the richness of the local context and characters of place, streetscape, form, language, materiality & detailing and give expression to this in new-build construction.

Principles from the Arts & Crafts movement and more recently the New Urbanism movement, inform our approach to creating characterful & tactile new buildings set amongst walkable neighbourhoods with a sense of identity and belonging that belies their age.

Over the past 30 years Clague Architects have completed many new-build projects which celebrate regional variation in their architecture and approach. These projects continue to settle well in their context with the passing years, in a manner that existing communities can embrace and call their own.

Some of these projects are on former urban post-industrial land, village brownfield gap sites or within curtilages of designated heritage assets. Some examples of our many completed new-build schemes are illustrated here including those at Canterbury, Tonbridge, Whitstable, Swale, Faversham, Wye, East Malling & Hadlow amongst other places. These new-build projects bring together our twin specialisms of Placemaking & Heritage.
