Swarbrick Associates Architects

Swarbrick Associates are a well established architectural practice based in Carlisle, led by principle David Swarbrick. Our work covers a wide range of building types and scales. Recent and current projects include education, cultural, community, office & commercial, mixed-use regeneration, masterplanning, residential and urban design. All provide high quality and sustainable environments for their users, offer good value for money within agreed budgets and make a positive contribution to their varying contexts.

We are experienced in working closely with our clients, and welcome that close dialogue between Architect and Client which is such an important part of the best design solutions. Much of our work is carried out in sensitive locations and often in urban Conservation areas. We are conscious of the energy and natural resources used in the making and running of buildings and always seek to minimise both. We address issues of inclusion in terms of access, comfort, and confidence which we find are relevant to most buildings and to a wide range of users. We are concerned to produce buildings that provide good value for money requiring both careful control of our own processes and close collaboration with other members of the design and construction teams.
