We are Humber Architecture – experts in architectural technology in Brighton.
We are an architectural practice with over 13 years’ experience, working with private residential clients and the private and public sectors in and around Sussex. Our role is to design plans to enhance your family home, or to build from scratch. Plus, we can re-fit, refurbish and renovate all sizes and types of workspaces, including retail, hospitality and educational projects.
We are, in short, the specialists that you may have been looking for – but haven’t found yet. Until now, that is. How, exactly? Different – in what way?
Because we’re architectural technologists; with essential in-depth, creative and conceptual skills. Plus, a strong understanding of how buildings need to work for the human beings that live and work in them. In a nutshell, Humber Architecture is technology-based. We draw from our expertise in science, sustainability, innovation and style to deliver high-end designs for living and working.
Designs have to be practical before they can look amazing. In our view, without function, there can be no form. So, we take construction design to the next level. With your greener values, you’re looking for a project that ticks all your boxes:
- Useful, yet stunning
- Minimal impact on the environment
- Sustainable use of materials
- Preserves energy
- Allows for natural, organic change as life moves on
We are here and at your service.
My name is Aaron Humber, Founder and Director of Humber Architecture. I have a CIAT-accredited degree in Architectural Design and Technology and a Masters in the Sustainability of the Built Environment. Read more about me here…
We aim to future-proof all our work.
You need buildings, homes and interiors that can grow or change organically. Equally, those that will meet the needs of future generations. Not least an understanding that for economic reasons, more adult children will be unwilling or unable to fly the nest. Thus, pragmatic living solutions will be needed.
Importantly, we recognise that the energy you use for heating and lighting must stay in your home or workspace, rather than escape through windows and roofs. After all, burning money is at the bottom of your To Do list.
When it comes to the environment, we feel that you share our values: Do No Harm. (Or, as little as possible.)
Not to put too fine a point on it, gaining planning permission for major – and sometimes surprisingly minor – construction projects in Brighton and Hove can be something of a trial. In a populous city, the regulations are stern. Stringent, even. Humber Architecture can work in positive co-operation with third parties on applications and appeals.
Listed Building Consent. There are outstandingly beautiful buildings in and around Brighton and Hove. We are aware that, should you wish to gain permission for work to be done, you will need to jump through a few hoops – or you could do. So, let us create compliant plans and drawings for that all-important “yes” from your local authority – with designs that complement the age and character of your property.
Building control protects everyone’s health and safety in the built environment. We’ll guide you through the maze of processes and practices, with safe, compliant drawings and scheme.
We love to collaborate. Humber Architecture has plenty of know-how to fill the gaps in your project. Let’s connect. We would be delighted to establish working relationships with:
- Property Developers
- Estate Agents
- Construction Companies
