Architects and Interior Designers
DOVE architecture & DOVE interiors are a RIBA chartered architecture and interior design practice in Cheshire, working throughout Warrington, Knutsford, Alderley Edge, Manchester and UK wide. A vibrant and growing company with an impressive reputation to equal its high standard of design
In 2020 after many requests from clients DOVE expanded its services to include interior design. At DOVE interior design we believe that good design isn’t just lovely design. A good design should solve the end users problems and challenges, transforming their space into a beautiful AND functional space, whilst exceeding the client’s expectations.
We work with a very varied clientele throughout Cheshire, Warrington, Wilmslow, Alderley Edge and the North West on a very varied array of projects. Whatever the project, size or cost our ethos remains the same, functionality, clever solutions and attention to detail are key. Once the problems are resolved, then the magic happens.
The practice was formed in 2012 by Derry Vaughan Edwards following eight years as an associate at award winning practice Stedman Blower Architects based in Surrey. Here she gained a wealth of experience working on high end residential, listed buildings and education projects. However, her love of the North and rural Cheshire brought her home to set up DOVE architecture.
DOVE architecture undertake commissions on all scales and budgets from private houses to commercial and residential development projects. We create modern, but not always contemporary, architecture that is fitting of its context. We work throughout Cheshire, Warrington, Wilmslow, Alderley Edge and the North West.
From Vision to Realisation
Cheshire Architects ‘DOVE’ have extensive experience of working with both contemporary and traditional buildings and have a particular interest and knowledge base in working with listed buildings. We are also very interested in sustainability and try to integrate this into all proposals however big or small. We are currently developing a prototype zero carbon home and have a Passive Haus currently onsite. We believe good design comes from challenges; be those site, budget or planning restraints.
