About us

Clarke Renner Architects was established in 1985 by David Clarke and Karl Renner, after having previously worked together at Chapman Taylor and Covell Matthews Wheatley. They were later joined by Robert Butterfield in 1988 who became a partner in 1999.

To date the practice has been involved in over 500 projects, many on tricky sites or sensitive locations. Building types have  ranged from retail, commercial, educational and health facilities, through to residential – including housing developments, sheltered accommodation, flats and one-off houses for individual clients. These have been for both private and affordable occupation with the construction being a mix of new-build, refurbishment, conservation, and listed buildings. We approach all our projects in an environmentally conscious manner. Clarke Renner has thus acquired an enviable reputation for designing imaginative yet rational architecture on a diverse range of building types & projects.

“We aim to achieve the highest quality of design through our dedicated and highly experienced team, whose varying skills contribute to making a success of our projects’.
