Garsdale Design

Garsdale Design is a family firm of architects, planners, urban designers, heritage and 3D geospatial consultants.  This range of disciplines builds on the skills and experience of our staff. We aim to create or conserve good buildings and good places in context through the combination of such skills.

As an RIBA Chartered Practice, we can undertake all types and sizes of project, no matter how small or specialized it may be.   Since our experience extends over many years in the UK and abroad, we can respond to a client’s needs with a deep understanding and expertise.

We have extensive knowledge and experience of working locally especially in the Yorkshire Dales, South Lakeland, and Eden as well as elsewhere in northwest England. Domestic work is focussed on housing and heritage assessment, but also includes community-based projects and specialist care provision.

We have a good working relationship with the local planning authority offices, as well as a deep understanding of the policy issues in their areas.

Our overseas projects have included the master planning and urban design of major cities in Iraq and Oman, as well as tourism-related projects in Oman and East Africa. Our principals have also worked in Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Algeria and Libya.

Our office is in a converted barn from where we look over to the Howgill Fells behind the market town of Sedbergh in the Yorkshire Dales.
