The Practice

Proctor Watts Cole Rutter is a long established Chartered architects practice based in Shaftesbury, but providing a service across the South of England.

Our extensive track record shows a wide range of imaginative designs in traditional and modern construction to private and public clients and developers throughout Wessex and beyond.

We pride ourselves on providing a personal service tailored to the individual needs of our clients. Our designs aim to maximise the potential of the site and respond to their context with materials that will age gracefully.

We support the philosophy of low energy, loose fit, long life and of "Firmness, Commodity and Delight" - to quote Pepys

The practice is well known for its experience in Conservation and Listed building work. Being members of the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings, the Institute of Historic Building Conservation and on the Salisbury diocesan list of approved Architects, we are aware of the care required in dealing with historic buildings.

In recent years we have also built a reputation for sensitive and sustainable modern design utilising cutting edge technology. We aim to deliver low energy, low maintenance buildings using local materials and skills.

Scale of project varies from small domestic extensions, to Multi million pound mixed developments. See the sector pages of this website.
