Marius Barran opened his Dulverton office in 1998 following a gradual increase in commissions in the South West of England over a ten-year period.

Currently, approximately half of the practice’s work is in the country, mainly the South West of England. Whereas our main aim, to ensure that the client gets the building they want, remains the same, architectural practice in the country differs from the urban experience.

Standards of workmanship and the builder’s dedication to his trade are much higher. The pace of the operation may be slower but the end result is often more satisfactory and better value.  The firm has become expert in designing buildings constructed in traditional materials, as well as the repair and adaptation of such buildings.

Projects in the country include a snooker room for Roald Dahl and a conservatory and writing room for Margaret Drabble and Michael Holroyd.
