Guttfield Architecture is an award-winning RIBA Chartered Architects Practice formed in 2011. Based in Berkshire, we work across the South East and London, helping clients create beautiful contemporary homes for challenging, protected and sensitive sites. We design low-energy, long-life buildings within challenging budgets.

The practice was included in New Architects 4, a book by The Architecture Foundation “surveying the best British architectural practices established in the past ten years.” Our project Cherry Tree House was featured on Channel 4’s Extraordinary Extensions and won Best Modern Building at the Chilterns Building Design Awards.

Work by the practice has been exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts and published in books, magazines and newspapers including The Times, The Sunday Times, the Evening Standard, RIBA Journal, Architecture Today, Architectural Design, Grand Designs and Wallpaper.

We take on a selected number of commissions to ensure that all clients receive a dedicated, detailed and personal service, led from inception to completion by practice founder Fred Guttfield.

Fred is a member of the Reading Borough Council Design Review Panel, a RIBA Professional Examiner and RIBA Student Mentor. He studied at the Bartlett School of Architecture, where he is an occasional visiting critic.
