Acanthus Holden - Practice Profile

Acanthus Holden can provide both architectural and planning services for projects, a desirable and streamlined combination for many clients. This combination works particularly well on a sensitive site where a planning approach integrated with an intelligent design based solution can really pay dividends.

The practice has provided comprehensive design services that extend from inception to completion on site for more than 20 years. The practice is also acknowledged as one that pursues an environmentally sensitive and sustainable approach to projects. The Practice has two Conservation Architects.

Acanthus Holden is well known throughout West Wales for its commitment to design through the conservation and creative re-use of redundant buildings as well as the design and integration of new buildings in sensitive environments. The Practice has also designed a number of important sustainable buildings and provided Development Control services. Through offering both planning and architectural services, Acanthus Holden has the ability to consider not only the design and immediate setting of any building, but also its impact on the wider environment.

The Practice is the Welsh representative of Acanthus Associated Practices Limited: a national group of firms committed to excellence in Architecture and the Conservation of the Environment.
