Who We Are.

van Ellen + Sheryn is a medium sized architectural practice, located in Ashburton, South Devon. Established in 2006, we specialise in contemporary, progressive design within the sensitive landscapes of National Parks and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We are a team of nine architects and designers in a practice that promotes discussion and collaboration to provide an exceptional design service from project inception to completion.

What We Do.

We undertake projects of all sizes, nationwide, including; high quality residential developments, commercial spaces, community buildings and leisure and tourism centres. This work is supported by our strong foundation in high quality domestic architecture for our discerning clientele.

How We Work.

Our design information is of the highest quality, utilising modern techniques including virtual reality modelling and BIM. This allows our clients to immerse themselves in the design process, facilitates collaboration with the project team, and ensures the highest standards are met on site to achieve truly wonderful pieces of architecture. We have an established network of consultants and contractors, and enjoy productive relationships with planning and building control authorities.

Our Ethos.

Our passion for architecture runs through the entire design process, from the ‘big-picture’ conceptual ideas through to the fine detailing of construction. Each project is treated with the same verve and creativity, irrespective of its size or budget. We believe in strong relationships with our clients, and encourage a collaborative, holistic approach to design, which evolves through presentation, discussion and reinterpretation. Through the use of environmentally responsible materials, and teamed with the latest building technologies, we strive to design and build structures that have a minimal impact upon our planet.
