Pragmatic and Personal. With over 15 years’ experience in Architecture.



Pragmatic and Personal. These words define ENA and our approach to design and collaboration with our homeowner and property developer clients. With over 15 years’ experience in Architecture, we have seen that high-quality design is born out of an honest dialogue between client and architect where both parties trust the other and leave ego at the door.

When we design buildings, we ensure that the aesthetic appeal is a consequence of the building’s functionality and so create a space where function is prioritized over frippery.

ENA believe in designing bespoke spaces tailored to our clients’ specific requirements, and that it is essential to listen to our clients’ vision to create meaningful spaces, buildings and homes.


We understand that the buildings and spaces that we design affect people’s lives and wellbeing. By putting the users, occupiers and passer-by at the heart of the process we ensure that we create places that people want to be in, and enjoy living and working in.

When we design, we immerse ourselves in the building and ‘live’ in the spaces we create. We identify issues and develop the design with the quality of life of the occupant at the forefront of our mind.


ENA work with homeowners to refurbish, redesign and extend their properties to improve their quality of life as well as the value of their home. Understanding our clients’ needs and requirements is our primary focus. We work with diligence and pragmatism to bring their aspirations to life.

We also work with property developers who benefit from our efficiency and experience to maximize the development potential of their investments. We understand that to deliver favourable returns one must deliver a high-quality product, and ENA firmly believe that good quality design and buildings promoting light, space, health & wellbeing generate higher values and a more desirable product.


I am delighted to recommend Chris and the team at EN Architects. Not only have they provided first class professional advice, they have done so in time frames and language that made the major project in which they participated (and still are) much easier. Raising nearly £1/2 million to buy and refurbish a day centre for women in Brighton & Hove is no easy job. The fact that were able to raise this capital in less than 4 months is testament to the fact that in EN Architects and other key advisors we had an excellent team that enabled us to concentrate on the main goal and worry less about the plans and logistics. Chris Holt is technically superb, a joy to work with and satisfyingly frugal o...
