LHC Design

LHC Design is a multi-award winning team of urban designers, architects, landscape architects and graphic designers, based in Exeter and Plymouth and working across the country. Our team provides an integrated approach to strategic visioning, regeneration, urban renewal, masterplanning and public realm projects.

We operate at all scales of the development and regeneration process, developing conceptual design and feasibility appraisals to enable early assessment of potential viability and options. Our iterative approach maintains the connection between design innovation and technical deliverability.

Our work is always underpinned by close collaboration between our core design teams, and workshop working with our clients and key stakeholders.

We have a well-deserved reputation for achieving planning consent for sensitive sites e.g. in AONBs, listed buildings, protected landscapes and Conservation Areas. This reputation is founded on our skills as urban designers and architects, but also on our expertise in landscape and visual appraisal, community consultation and graphic communication.

We are creative, knowledgeable, practical and passionate about designing sustainable communities which sit naturally with the history, context and landscape of their location.
