Simon Spencer MCIAT is a Chartered Architectural Technologist in Devon providing tailored services for both small and large scale development projects across the South West.

Looking for a Devon based specialist in Architecture?

Having started my practice in April 2011 I have been very busy with many clients requiring one-off houses, barn conversions and estate layouts.

I am happy to deal with everything from your small kitchen extension to the one-off house you have always dreamed of. If you have larger areas of land you wish to develop, I can also assist with these. I have many developments across Devon that I have designed from first Urban Design principles.

Urban Design

I have worked with many well established commercial building contractors, assisting them with Urban Design layouts. To date, clients include Taylor Wimpey, Barratt, Cavanna and Bovis, in both my previous employment and under my own heading post 2011.

Projects include:

  • Sandyrock Pinhoe here in Exeter, which is now under construction.
  • Chillington, 44 Houses for Taylor Wimpey.
  • Yealmpton, 100 houses for Taylor Wimpey.
  • Strategic data for 700+ in Ilfracombe PCL Planning.
  • Enabling layout for 136 houses in Watchett about to be approved.
  • Cavanna and Bovis, Secmaton Lane Dawlish, 170 houses now almost complete.

Recent Individual New Builds

Ottery St Mary

The Garden House at the rear of Coles Court, Ottery St Mary. This house stands in the rear garden of the Coles Court development that I did in 2014/16. An unusual house dug into the site and won at appeal.


New house in New North Road Exeter, under construction.


One of my most interesting projects is a wheelchair friendly holiday accommodation unit at Larkbeare, which is ultra modern near Passiv in design and has been well received and used.

Sustainable Building Design

Sustainability remains a keyword in these days of environmental consciousness, and my designs take this as a fundamental base, to achieve both client aspirations and Governmental requirements. To this aim I am a member of The Passivehaus Trust.

I also work closely with Westructure Timber Frame, a local timber frame manufacturer with whom several of my one-off houses are being built.
