Bristol based, Adam Harris is a Chartered Architect and Planning Advisor; specialising in residential domestic scale projects (home psychology, refurbishment, renovation, new build, self build and bespoke houses) and planning sensitive development, serving the South West & Wales (Bristol, Bath, Gloucester, Chepstow, Monmouth, Newport, Cardiff and Swansea)


‘We approached Adam with an idea of creating a comfortable, bright and well-proportioned annex but with the constraints of a small plot. Adam helped us in defining a clear design brief, centered on the specific needs of our small family.  His insight and forward-thinking approach to the brief allowed us to become part of the process, which in itself was an exciting and awe-inspiring experience. Their resulting solution brought together a clear and concise understanding of our essential requirements, breathing life into this challenging plot.‘

‘From the start, Adam has listened and interpreted the vision we had for our new home.  It was always going to be challenging to gain planning permission for our intended project however, Adam went above and beyond to ensure we had the required permissions.  Without Adam's knowledge and dedication, we would not have even got our dream home off the ground’.

‘Choosing an architect is never easy.  We are not property developers; We bought a house that we liked the feel of in a place we love.  We wanted to make a special place for family and friends.  We set out to find people we could work with who would listen to and advise us and help make the house what it could be.  Before we found Samuel Harris we spoke to a number of architects, most of which had made their minds up about design before they stepped inside the house.  Speaking to them felt more like a lecture than a discussion.  Adam and Rebecca listened; they asked questions about how we wanted to use the house. We think they have produced a wonderful design full of innovation but still sympathetic and in tune with what the house is, has been and will be.  There is a long way to go before the house is finished but we know we found the right architects.’
