Who We Are

Porter Haworth is an architectural design practice. Our offices are in the historic sea-side town of Lyme Regis in Dorset.

What We Do

We design new buildings, extensions to existing ones, come up with ideas for refurbishing them, reconfigure and convert them.

Our past projects cover residential and commercial properties, listed buildings, holiday accommodation, beach huts and public conveniences.

How We Do It

We provide a full architectural service, seeing your project through from inception to completion. We design, apply for statutory permissions, add technical bits, help you find and engage a contractor and supervise the build; an end to end solution.

This process is usually phased into planning; building regulations; tender; contract management and site supervision.

However, we understand that not every client wants or has the budget for a full architectural service. Sometimes the project doesn’t warrant it so we also tailor what we do as appropriate. Which means you can cherry pick phases from the full service that suit your needs.


Many construction projects are collaborative and we enjoy strong relationships with many professionals who we work with to complete our projects. Some of those professionals include;

  • Structural Engineers

  • Planning consultants

  • Building conservation specialists

  • Ecologist

  • Landscape Designers
