Acanthus Holden is primarily an architectural practice, but in addition to its core activities, Acanthus Holden provide, planning consultancy, Principal Designer, project management and historic building consultancy. It is our belief that to produce the best result, and effective co-ordination and delivery a set of skills is required which extends beyond pure architectural services, so whilst architecture remains our core business activity, the practice regularly uses its other in-house skills to add value to the service it provides.

Acanthus Holden can provide both architectural and planning services for projects, a desirable and streamlined combination for many clients. This combination works particularly well on sensitive sites where a planning approach integrated with an intelligent design based solution can really pay dividends.

The practice has provided comprehensive design services that extend from inception to completion on site for more than 25 years. The practice is also acknowledged as one that pursues an environmentally sensitive and sustainable approach to projects and has experience of working on BREEAM and Passivhaus schemes. There are two Conservation Architects in the practice and the Practice has considerable experience on working on listed buildings.

Acanthus Holden is well known throughout West Wales for its commitment to design through the conservation and creative re-use of redundant buildings as well as the  design and integration of new buildings in sensitive environments. The Practice has also designed a number of important sustainable buildings. Through offering both planning and architectural services, Acanthus Holden has the ability to consider not only the design and immediate setting of any building, but also its impact on the wider environment.

The Practice is the Welsh representative of Acanthus Associated Practices Limited: a national group of firms committed to excellence in Architecture and the Conservation of the Environment.
