Welcome To Devon Garden Antiques

About Us

Roger RobinsonThe Practice was founded by Roger Robinson in South Devon in 1989. He had qualified as a Chartered Architect after studying at Plymouth School of Architecture and the world famous Architectural Association school of Architecture in London. He subsequently also gained a post graduate Diploma in Architectural Conservation at Bristol University.

After several years working in local authorities and for other private practices his passion for innovative design based on sound traditional principles lead him to start his own Architectural Practice near Kingsbridge.

Becoming heavily involved in running the Devonshire section of the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings, SPAB, Barns Campaign survey, he specialised in sympathetic historic building conservation, as well as building a reputation for sensitive new work throughout the West Country. Both these strands of the practice's work continue to inform each other.

Several technical associates support the work of the practice which has also built up a sound working relationship with many other specialists and professionals to provide a fully comprehensive service to its clients.

Green oakRoger's passion for using good quality natural materials in his designs has reinforced his sympathetic style of house design that is clearly influenced by many years of working within the local vernacular tradition. This developing interest has recently found new expression in the use of green oak frame construction in several recent projects and the Practice is interested in exploring the possibilities of this method of construction further.

The Practice has been kept small for several reasons. Firstly, because we enjoy the design process and want to remain involved. Secondly, because we enjoy meeting people and getting to know them and fulfilling their requirements personally. Thirdly, because we enjoy working from home-based offices and lastly because we think this all adds up to much greater value for money for our clients and a healthier and more sustainable setting for our business.

We are also members of SPAB and the Devon Buildings Group.

Space... Light... Context... Sensitivity... Transformations...
