Fowler’s in the Spear’s Home & Design Index 2021

We are delighted to share that Fowler’s has been included once again in the Spear’s Home & Design Index for 2021.

From our entry in the 2019 Home & Design Index:

“James Fowler: To the manor born

The affable James Fowler is director of Fowler Architecture & Planning in Wiltshire, which his father Mike founded 38 years ago and which focuses on country houses, mainly across the south of England. ‘We avoid London like the plague,’ Fowler tells Spear’s. ‘We understand country houses.’ The firm is working on 20 ‘really lovely’ projects, from extensions to new builds – modern and neo-Georgian – through to refurbishments. ‘The key thing is it’s houses, not hotels or offices, and 95 per cent of our work is one-off projects. It’s a family business and we’re instinctively interested in family life.’ “

Fowler’s was also included in the Spear’s 500 2021 as a Top Recommended Architects practice:

“James Fowler is emphatic that his family business has ‘no set style’. ‘We like to work with the clients to develop houses they love,’ he says. The exteriors of Fowler’s projects often take a traditional form. ‘If you ask a child to draw a house, what do they draw?’ he asks, pointing to Victorian façades with their climbing ivy and prominent chimneys. One gem in his portfolio is a neoclassical replacement house in Wiltshire, which displays Fowler Architecture & Planning’s talent when it comes to the design of bespoke homes.

The company adopts a smart approach to planning, employing also town planners in its team of architectural talents: ‘We’re not just architects, we’re planners.’ “
