Greenspace Architects Ltd is an eco-architectural practice with extensive experience of producing high quality, low energy and carefully crafted architecture, creating fantastic spaces and places underpinned by sustainable design principles.

Established in Ellesmere, Shropshire in 2010 by architects Kevin Slack and the late Robert Netherwood, Greenspace Architects undertakes work focused on one-off houses and housing development across the whole of England and Wales, leading to a regional base in Amersham, Bucks and becoming a Partner at the National Self Build and Renovation Centre in Swindon.

The practice is founded on the principles of sustainable placemaking, with the ultimate aim of creating beauty, as we believe true sustainability comes from creating things people will love – not simply a good energy strategy! We have honed our skills working on bespoke homes for values-driven private clients who respond to our contemporary contextual design and our understanding of their needs and desires, such as access to sunlight and the outdoors. Indeed, the best house projects emerge for clients who fully engage with the design development, giving back as much as they are given: good design cannot simply be visited on them.

We encourage self-build clients to dream about what they want in a home - because on Day 1 anything is possible – then meet these aspirations utilizing a ‘fabric first’ approach that ensures the walls, floor and roof all perform to the highest standard, often using the AECB Standard or Passivhaus design approach and obviating the need for a fixed heating system. Retrofit is the biggest challenge, both in the technical solutions, cost and scale of the problem, but we can guide your project to ensure we turn whatever you have into whatever you want!
