Having established a general architectural practice in 1978, and working on a wide range of building types including industrial and commercial, low cost housing, individual houses, medical centres, public houses, restaurants and hotels and village halls, David Lewis and the Practice have also achieved an enviable reputation for their work on Historic and Listed Buildings. Our expertise includes the conservation and restoration of listed buildings and their alteration to accommodate new uses, besides the design of new buildings to fit comfortably into sensitive and historic locations. David Lewis also provides an Expert Witness and Consultancy Service especially associated with old or historic buildings and Conservation Areas. Justification Statements, necessary under P.P.G.15, are prepared for developers, planning consultants and other architects to accompany Planning Applications affecting Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas

We are on the panel of architects serving English Heritage and have recently been appointed by Her Majesty the Queen to the Panel of Architects serving the Royal Household. We are experienced at working on buildings funded by the National Lottery. David Lewis is a Trustee and an Executive Director of the Sheffield Galleries & Museums Trust, and a Trustee of both the Sheffield Industrial Museums Trust and the Eyam Museum Trust.
