Welcome to Alcove Architecture, a RIBA chartered architectural practice located in the heart of Worthing, Sussex. Established in 2013, we have been providing architectural services to a range of clients for over a decade.

From humble beginnings (in the alcove), the practice has grown from strength to strength and has established itself as one of the top-rated registered architects thanks to our excellent reputation, and affiliation with the RIBA.

A significant proportion of our commissions come via recommendation or repeat clients, and as a result we are thrilled with this confirmation that we have met (and often exceeded) our clients expectations so much that they are happy to recommend or come back to us with future projects.

“Alcove Architecture gave us great design ideas and enabled us to make the best of the space we have. It has completely transformed our house and the way we live.” Clair & Dave

  • You may have seen our logo on TV at the weekend, as Worthing FC played out a tough 2-2 draw against Bath City FC in what could be a vital game for play off positions in the Vanarama National League South. Located a stone’s throw from our offices, we are proud to sponsor our local team and it was great to capture a good image of the league’s top goal scorer, Ollie Pearce with our board. Congratulations to Danny Cashman on both goals and good luck to the Rebels for the rest of the season! ⚽🔴

One might think that the cameraman needs an architect (or some new socks) for one of the images!

  • Great to see some drone footage of works progressing on site in Harrow. A two storey new build and refurbishment of a grade II listed building to provide homes for the elderly and less able.

  • It has been a busy year and we would just like to wish you all a great Xmas break as we shut down our office until the new year.

This was our 10 year anniversary and we have been working on the following highlights whilst still helping clients with their home extensions, renovations and improvements:
- A 13 bedroom home for the elderly and less able in Harrow
- A three storey extension to create a sixth form in a school
- A four court sports hall in Richmond
- A focal community building to a housing development in Harlow
- A sports pavilion with 6 changing rooms and 56 parking spaces

Maybe you will receive some Lego and end up becoming architect?
  • Back to Pagham earlier this week to see how our Sefter Road scheme for 6 bespoke houses is coming along... lots of progress since our last visit with the roof truss installation well underway, forming the vaulted internal spaces which will provide light and spacious interiors. Summertime made a brief reappearance as well!

  • Perfect weather for our recent site visit down in the Witterings… couldn’t resist a wander about (and maybe an ice cream!) after a busy morning doing a measured survey.
  • Our developer client Hamilton Homes & Developments has sent us some site progress photos of our scheme for a development of 6 houses in Sefter Road, Pagham. Great to see works progressing smoothly and nearly at first floor level already. The scheme features 6 homes, all with access to a lovely natural stream which runs along the rear of the site. Looking forward to seeing the completed houses which include architectural features such as vaulted ceilings, open plan family living spaces, and large bi-fold doors which open out onto covered external spaces which will allow use of the external areas all year round.

  • Starting February with some great news… we are delighted to have received planning consent for this new build house in the heart of the South Downs National Park. The project required a careful balance of client aspirations with the requirements of the planning authority, due to its sensitive context. The result is a low-profile form using local vernacular materials, with superb views out across the Downs. Sustainability measures have also been a priority with photo-voltaics, green roofs and overhanging canopies above large areas of glazing to prevent overheating and light pollution in accordance with the National Park’s Dark Night Skies policy.

  • Dreamy staircase on our refurbishment of this Grade II listed maisonette in Belgravia – swipe for the ‘before’ photo!
We redesigned the feature stair and landing above to create a more flowing, sweeping feel to the stair and to let the natural light in. The existing iron floor grille has been retained to provide a focal point.

Alcove fulfilled the role of technical architect providing all working drawings and on-site support to the main contractor. Additionally, we undertook redesign work in relation to the original planning consent (design by others), to ensure the school received the best building to meet their needs.

It is always great to revisit our projects once completed and see how well the owners have settled into and personalised their new spaces. This extension features an internal glazed corner which completely opens the connection between the kitchen and new dining area. The glazed corner and glazed gable also provide that all-important connection with the garden, letting natural daylight into the family living space.

We love these internal shots of our project at Furze Platt School in Maidenhead in collaboration with TSP Architects for main contractor @beard.construct. Two buildings; a three-storey teaching block comprising specialist science spaces organised around a central atrium and a separate multi-purpose hall building designed with a particular focus on performing arts, requiring careful coordination of lighting, acoustics, ventilation, seating and staging. Alcove fulfilled the role of technical architect providing all working drawings and on-site support to the main contractor. Additionally, we undertook redesign work in relation to the original planning consent (design by others), to ensure the school received the best building to meet their needs.
