Forest Architecture Limited is a young and creative RIBA Chartered Practice, founded by Natalie Skeete in 2012. Based in Lymington (on the edge of the New Forest), we are passionate about creating beautiful, well considered architecture and typically work on listed buildings and other heritage assets.
The practice produces high quality architecture; designed to enhance the well being of our clients. We take pride in crafting buildings and enjoy being creative with how materials come together.
Our projects stem from a need to be inventive with design, to create beautiful buildings and spaces with soul. We believe thoughtful design can improve the way our clients live and work.
Forest Architecture creates contemporary, bespoke architecture with an emphasis on natural materials, good quality light and a conscious need for our buildings to harmonise with their surroundings. We particularly enjoy fusing old buildings with contemporary additions and place equal emphasis on how our buildings look; as well as how they perform.
We work collaboratively with our clients, consultants, contractors and end-users, to create bespoke buildings; each designed mindful of context, brief and budget. We are conscious of the limitations some clients may have whether it is a small budget or a difficult site; and therefore, have a strong belief in reuse and taking advantage of readily available resources.
Forest Architecture enjoys sculpting spaces of beauty and aims to create architecture that inspires. We have a particular interest in building conservation and work on historic buildings as well as contemporary design.
