We are a bespoke Architectural practice located within the London Borough of Bexley,
creating inspiring sustainable designs for residential, education and healthcare projects.
We believe great design enhances our lives.
We design buildings which address their primary need, through a simple concept, and aim to culminate in a building which is inspiring, honest, thought provoking and also beautiful.
We create sustainable architecture through an approach that balances creativity and science, for a variety of building types and needs.
Weatherhead Architecture believes in the power of design, and how well crafted, thought provoking buildings can have a positive impact on our lives.
We believe in a process that revolves around listening. Architecture should ultimately provide a physical response to the individual needs of the project.
The relationship between the client and the Architect is very important to us. We want to create a building that will surpass expectations and become a place that is loved by all.
We always look to innovate on each project. This can manifest itself through materiality or integrated technology, or both. We believe a building should reflect the time in which it has been designed, yet we also believe it should be respectful to historical references, place and tradition.
We design buildings that respect the surroundings in which they are placed. We believe that architecture and nature can be stronger together and aim to create solutions which have positive impact on the planet on which we live.
We provide full architectural design services, including visualisations, for a wide range of project types and sizes.
We offer full architectural design service for a variety of smaller projects.
We believe that architecture is a personal experience and one which should celebrate excellence in detailing. We also believe that a home is the centre in which our lives revolve. We believe that a beautifully designed home can enhance our lives.
We aim to produce architectural solutions that address their primary need and result in physical form that is elegant and inherently unique to the client.
Medium scale projects
We provide a full architectural service for a limited range of medium scale residential projects.
We believe that well designed sustainable developments are key to the future of our growing cities. We believe that they should be places of delight and integrate positively with nature. We believe that every home should be designed with the same basic goals of maximising daylight and minimising wasted space.
David Weatherhead, Architect ARB
My passion is architecture. I love defining space and creating places that have appositive impact on our environment.
Having spent over 10 years working for a large design studio in the city I have set up my own practice to focus on a range of projects that make peoples lives better.
I am passionate about the environment and how architecture can play an important role in the environmental regeneration of an area. Being considerate to the planet on which we live is inherently important to the way I live and the way I design. Im a firm believer that the most environmentally friendly building is the one that didn’t need to be built.
I focus primarily within 3 sectors healthcare, education residential. I believe that the right environment can help us heal, make us engaged to learn and make our lives more enjoyable. This to me is the power of design.
Starting with a series of residential projects in Sweden, I find that I am fascinated by how a well designed house can have a positive impact on people and how ultimately this house can become a home. Im very interested in new technologies and emerging materials. I believe within my lifetime a material will be engineered that will change the way in which architecture is created, and one that is ultimately kind to the earth.
