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

We are a well-established architectural and town planning practice that has operated in Wessex and beyond for over fifty years.

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.

Since inception we have created a wide range of imaginative designs for private and public clients, and developers in a broad range of commissions.

The practice has a well-established track record working in Conservation Areas and with historic buildings from local heritage buildings to Grade I, and even creating new listed buildings.

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.

We have also built a reputation for sensitive and sustainable modern design utilising the latest technology. We aim to create buildings using low energy, have a long life and are robust and flexible; using local materials and skills where appropriate.

Scale of project varies from small domestic extensions and one off houses to Multi million pound mixed developments. See the sector pages of this website for more details..
