Who We Are

We are an award winning architectural practice, located in Ashburton, Devon. Our approach aims to wed progressive, contemporary design with environmentally responsible construction practices.

From the start you approached the assignment with a level of creativity and originality, as well as an understanding of how we wanted to live as a family, not shown by any of the many other architects we spoke to. Throughout you have demonstrated exemplary attention to detail, patience and a clear enjoyment in what you do. We started with a run down, dark, claustrophobic house and have ended up with a property truly worthy of its setting in the most beautiful countryside I know.

You don’t think you need an architect until you hit problems (especially awkward planners) then the experience, insight and professionalism of van Ellen and Sheryn is priceless.

Van Ellen + Sheryn have a consistent and thorough approach to the design of individual properties as well as place making. The projects we have undertaken with them have expertly balanced our brief with relevant contemporary design that is highly marketable. Their design lead approach, along with excellent interpersonal skills, pays dividends when presenting proposals to both Local Authorities and the public at consultation events.
