ADG, established in 1985, has grown in experience to place the practice at the forefront of design in Plymouth and the Southwest.

ADG is a company that is proud of its staff and its achievements. We have grown to be one of the leading architectural practices in the Southwest by employing highly qualified professionals in all our teams and encouraging them to investigate and develop new skills and interests. Every member of our team has the appropriate experience, skills and ability to consider, develop and respond to our clients’ requirements. 

A bit about us…

The Architects Design Group has created buildings, places and spaces for more than 30 years. We combine commercial awareness with practical experience to add value for clients regardless of size or scope. A changing market demands a flexible response. We design in the present, anticipate the future, and question the norm to deliver sustainable design solutions.

…a lot about you

People drive everything that we do – from our clients and staff to the end-users of the places and spaces we create. We listen to our clients and work with them to develop the right response to meet their needs, their aspirations, and approach every brief as a unique challenge. That’s one reason why so many clients, public and private, choose ADG again and again.

and more than just design…

Architecture will always be at the heart of what we do, but our clients often demand more. We offer a full range of services to complement our core practice including, planning and regeneration, project management, conservation, interior and graphic design. From inception to completion, we can assemble the right team for each project.

“It has been a great pleasure to work with such a talented and dedicated team, both in the detailed planning of the project and to deliver it within a tight timetable for the construction work itself. I feel that this development has enhanced the architectural merit of The Godolphin Arms, with stylish contemporary flourishes.”

St Aubyn Estates

“During a long and complicated mixed-use planning application involving complex planning negotiations the advice we received from the team at ADG was invaluable.”

Private Developer

“An excellent experience and service from start to finish of the project. Obviously as always this was highly dependant on the people who were involved.”
