Welsh + Major Architects

Welsh + Major has a reputation for creating delightful, practical and inspiring architecture. Our practice has considerable experience working on projects of varying scales and complexity, located in a wide range of environments. We are passionate about designing places, objects and spaces that are great places to be, feel wonderful to be around and that work flexibly and sustainably into the future.

Established in 2004 by David Welsh and Chris Major, Welsh + Major brings together wide ranging experience in architecture, planning and urban design for both the public and private sectors. We offer clients a rare combination of design excellence and experienced, pragmatic project delivery. Each project is special to us, and is allocated all the resources required to design a wonderful building.

All of our buildings, interiors, masterplans and design strategies have at their core a deep consideration of the environmental impact that they make. We see ethical material sourcing, environmental footprint, social sustainability and cost and life cycle impacts are fundamental design choices that affect all of us no matter what the size or type of project we work on.
