About Us

Footprint Architects is an RIBA chartered practice with an extensive portfolio of projects across residential, commercial and educational sectors & a long history of good client relationships.

Our aim is to create and champion inspiring contemporary design that will enhance the experience for those who work and live in the spaces we create.

By harnessing the team’s specialist experiences and passions we work collaboratively to explore the full possibility of every brief to ensure projects maximise their design potential & deliver on brief.

Whether we are commissioned for a full or tailored service our commitment to providing a quality and professional service is fundamental to what we do.

“We strive for excellence in finding environmentally conscious, creative solutions that work within project constraints and budget.”

Footprint Architects is situated in Bournemouth, Dorset and are ideally placed to service clients in the south and across central England. Our current client base includes projects in Hampshire, Dorset and in London and the surrounding areas.


Our creative flair, technical ability and experience enable us to respond pro actively to provide comprehensive architectural design consultancy services.  With RIBA Chartered Practice accreditation we are customer focused to deliver excellence through all stages of a construction project. Our core set of services follow the RIBA work stages to cover every aspect of an architect’s role from initial site appraisals to post construction duties.  We recognise however that not all projects require full architectural services and provide tailored services to suit each commission.

We also take on the role of technical advisors and Peter Ward is a RIBA accredited design advisor for the education sector. This assists clients in establishing a brief as well as supporting the Client through the design and construction stages, offering impartial advice on the design proposals prepared by others.

Footprint Architects are a BIM enabled practice generating coordinated 3D models of their designs. This enables full collaboration with the design and construction team facilitating efficiency and the production of better quality information at every stage of the design process.
