About Us

Parkes Lees Architects are a welcoming and professional RIBA chartered practice, placing design excellence and high quality at the top of our agenda. We will guide you through each stage of the design process from concept through to completion, fulfilling the potential of your unique building project. Based in Launceston, our wide- ranging portfolio includes projects in Cornwall, Devon, and further afield.

Our talented team of architects and technicians bring extensive and specialist knowledge to every scale of project including conservation, traditional construction, contemporary, sustainable, and low-energy design. As an established practice, we will signpost you towards your individual project requirements, including collaborative working with our industry partners, and contractors with whom we have built trusted relationships over decades. Our expertise in working with English Heritage, Historic England, the National Trust, and private landowners of listed and historic buildings, provides invaluable expertise for the repair or alterations to G1, GII* and GII listed buildings.

We pride ourselves in maintaining good relationships with our clients, design team consultants and local authorities. We undergo regular and continual professional development, attending seminars and courses to keep up to date with the latest design, technology and legislation. In addition, we have trained dozens of architectural and work-placement students on their path to becoming qualified architects.

We understand how important development economics is to a project and we will work with you to provide design solutions within your budget. Let us share our knowledge with you, and help realise your building project. Our practice brochure can be downloaded here. Call us to arrange a free one-hour consultation at our Launceston office.
