About

DSC_0928

Barker Shorten Architects LLP is a small, client-focused firm of Chartered Architects  with a diverse range of clients.

Much of our current work is with land owners and developers who are looking to realise the full potential of tight urban sites.  This requires a close understanding of planning policy and the opportunities that can be found within it.

At Barker Shorten we take our clients seriously. We will work with you, from outline feasibility studies, through the design stage to control of the building process on site, to produce the best possible solution to your needs.

We believe that the way a building responds to its users and surroundings is more important than working in a predefined style or technology.

Founded in 1991, we have the experience to know what the possibilities are, and the technical expertise to fulfill them.

We evaluate each job on its own terms.  It takes a concentrated effort to work designs into solutions that are simple, generous and coherent.

We are tenacious and very experienced in our dealings with planning departments; we like to win.
