HTC Architects are a leading Architectural Practice working across the UK. Based in Leeds and London we are led by our founding partners of 30 years and have gained a reputation for specialising in Commercial, Industrial, Retail, and Residential sectors.

Our national client base of owner occupiers, landlords and developers are served by a team that is dedicated to good design, backed by technical competence, good service, accessibility, a willingness to understand our client’s requirements and tailor our services accordingly. Our services include concept design to project delivery, acting as Principal Designers, DDA advice and party wall surveying.

It is our philosophy that the Directors assume personal involvement and are accessible at every stage of the project, ensuring continuity, attention to detail, quality design and the ability to deliver, together with a reassuring overview and point of contact.

Architecture is not about bricks and mortar it is about people. How people live, how they work, how they relax and how they enjoy life.
Our work is based on a foundation of research. This can be as simple as watching how clients use their house or as complicated as arriving at innovative technical solutions to problems that allow us to make buildings work for you.

We apply this research in a collaborative way working with clients and end users to arrive at building solutions which the users are a part of. We recognise that buildings are never “complete” but will continue to change throughout their lives. We aim to building in flexibility which allows this to happen.
We aim to design buildings which are simple to read, elegantly conceived and above all detailed with technical prowess and sophistication.

The work of the practice is underpinned by a strong conviction in the value of creative design, not by a desire to specialise in any single sector. Our strength lies in our ability to apply a systematic design process regardless of programme or location. We apply an inclusive and collaborative approach fostering creative dialogue with clients, consultant teams, contractors and end users.

We develop our designs to maximise space and light; we aspire to deliver something uplifting and unique. We seek out appropriate technologies for construction, the electrical, mechanical, ventilation and heating strategies to provide an energy efficient and long-lasting solution to every brief. As well as new build we have a strong track record of working on old and listed buildings.



HTC Architects offer a professional and responsive service from feasibility stage, through planning, into construction and beyond for JYSK UK. They are a friendly and approachable team who I have no hesitation in recommending to my colleagues and network.

Tungsten Properties have been working with HTC for the past five and half years, building a strong working relationship based on trust, quality and reliability. 

HTC have been outstanding in designing and delivering over 20 industrial schemes with a further 19 sites in the pipeline; a total of  4m sq ft across the board. Their ability to turn around feasibility drawings quickly and in a professional manner helps us obtain the best site layouts, especially on awkward-shaped sites.  

Thanks to HTC, their design and attention to detail make the Tungsten industrial schemes best in class. 

It is a pleasure to work with such an inspiring and professional team.
