Who Are We

Hough Architecture Ltd is an Architects Practice based in Sandbach, Cheshire, working on projects in Cheshire and around the United Kingdom. We provide a wide range of Architectural services for Residential, Workplace, Arts and Culture, Listed Buildings and Agricultural; for private, public and commercial sector clients. Our work is developed in collaboration with our clients and other professionals, to design buildings with a strong sense of place, a rich materiality and a sense of craft, driven from the buildings historical, social and cultural contact.


James Hough BA (Hons), B.Arch, PG.Dip PPMA, ARB, RIBA - graduated from the University of Lincoln in 2010 under the tutelage of Johnathan Hendry and Mark Tuff.  He re-joined Architectural Design, Macclesfield working on a wide variety of residential projects from small house extensions, bespoke high end dwellings, multiple unit residential developments, alongside commercial, industrial and agricultural projects. In late 2015 he established Hough Architecture Ltd.

The services we offer include:


• Brief Development    • Feasibility Studies    • Site Appraisals    • Full Building Design


• Master Planning    • Detailed Design    • Local Authority Applications    • Building Regulations Application


• Tender Action    • Contract Administration    • House Extensions    • New Dwellings

How We Work

Each project is completely bespoke and the associated services provided by the architect are also bespoke; cost and scope of services will be tailored to the individual clients, sites, and projects’ requirements. There will however be projects that will be similar in scale, costs and services and this section is intended to give an overview of a typical project on a most common (traditional) procurement route and is aimed at someone looking to engage an architect for the first time.

Why Choose Us

Personal Service

The client is the key to any successful project; we work collaboratively with our clients and other stakeholders, to achieve the desired end result. We ensure regular communication between ourselves and the client, to develop the proposal in line with the client’s requirements; providing a personal, efficient and outstanding experience.


Professional Service

All work is undertaken by, or under the direct supervision of, an RIBA Chartered Architect. An architect can guide you through a whole range of processes - from the initial design, to seeing the project through planning and construction, all the way to completion. Architects add value, whether it comes from maximising impact or functionality, bringing about change of use, increasing capacity or marketability. We adhere to the RIBA Code of Conduct and ARB Code of Conduct, which ensures the highest standard of professional conduct and service.


Creative, Innovative and Suitable

Our work is developed, in collaboration with our clients and other professionals, to design buildings with a strong sense of place, a rich materiality and a sense of craft, driven from the buildings historical, social and cultural contact. We look for ways to optimise value for money, both in our service, the resulting project and throughout the building lifecycle.


Full Services

We offer all aspects of the Architect’s role, from feasibility studies and brief writing, through to concept development, contract administration and offer support when the building is in use.

We can produce visual impressions of our designs to assist our clients in visualising the proposals using a wide range of techniques tailored to the individual project and client’s needs, include:  3D models produced using Building Information Modelling (BIM) 3D software Revit; 2D drawings, Physics Models; Photomontages etc.
