RIBA Chartered Practice

Woodward Smith Chartered Architects LLP has grown since its predecessor practice Michael J Smith and Associates was formed in 1981. The current practice is headed up by John Woodward and Matthew Steart, both  RIBA Chartered Architects. John and Matt are supported by 6 permanent architectural staff; Enea, Lee, Dom , Dan, John and Leanne. Our staff hold profession qualifications with RIBA and CIAT and we are Accredited registered Energy Assessors for new build homes and residential conversions .

The Practice specialises in planning and design for the residential and business sectors having strong and established working relationships with the local planning authorities of Exmoor, North Devon, Torridge and Mid Devon.

Utilising Autodesks 'Revit' CAD Software since 2004 the practice is able to offer clients a deeper understanding of their build/project prior to the build commencing.

This technology has recently taken a further step forward with the advent of virtual reality (VR) headsets that allow our clients to step inside their project; understanding and experiencing them at an even deeper level.
