Gillick Brothers are a small but experienced and versatile architectural design and specialist design partnership working on all aspects of the design, development, alteration or restoration of buildings; their fabric, interiors and furnishing.

What we do

Architects and architectural designers, we design and manage the building, alteration, restoration, conservation or development of all kinds of buildings, including houses, commercial premises, flats, churches and communal buildings.

We design and execute schemes of restoration and refurbishment of sensitive heritage sites, buildings and objects, including specialist decoration and work with listed and period buildings using traditional materials.

We design new fittings, furniture and decorative embellishment, and work with a network of artisans in their production.

We carry out the inspection of buildings, including quinquennial inspections, compile reports and advise the owners, our clients, on maintenance, protection or development of their buildings and sites.

We devise feasibility studies for speculative development sites and properties for our clients.

We compile and submit applications for planning, conservation area or listed building consent, writing the Design and Access Statements or Heritage Impact Assessments required, and coordinating and advising upon all other specialist input for complex or sensitive sites. We have a successful track record in securing planning permission and listed building consent.

The architectural services we provide cover the entire project: From concept design through architectural detailing, planning application, building control submission, tendering, contract administration, site supervision and project management . . . . .  through to the completion of your project.


Our approach

We are designers, first and foremost, and approach every project with a personal drive to produce well-designed objects and places. Our ability to design is combined with our technical ability and wide range of experience to develop the fine detail and practical solutions that make good building, manufacture and restoration possible.

Our approach to each project is tailored to meet our client’s aspirations and objectives, be they personal, communal or commercial.

We are intensely interested in the visual environment, in buildings, art and design; its appearance, use and its effect on the individual and society. This intellectual connection with our work underpins what we do.
