Property Development

We know what developers want and need from an architect. That’s because with more than 30 years of experience in the industry we understand the process of development.

We don’t just produce pretty masterplans or detailed construction packages, we create schemes that are both attractive and cost effective and that appeal to investors every bit as much as the people living and working in the places we create.


We have a wealth of experience in master-planning sites: from one or two houses to whole developments; from early-door feasibility sketches to planning compliant schemes and detailed construction layouts.

We don't just produce pretty pictures, we ensure that every scheme is underpinned by a knowledge and experience of planning, development and economic constraints that affect how a brief is compiled. In fact, we like nothing more than to take a site and work it into a coherent design that not only meets the planners' expectations but exceeds the clients - it's what we're good at!

“Marcus and the team have been with us right from the start, helping us develop our portfolio and to be recognised as a leading rural housebuilder in the East Midlands. Commercially and technically spot on and with designs that inspire customers it’s a big thanks from us and may the great relationship continue!”


- Chris Newington, Redmile Developments

Luxury & Developer Led Housing

The first thing you'll notice about our work is that we have a wide range of styles - this is simply because we design to satisfy market demand and location and don't rigidly stick to a 'one style fits all' approach. We understand the local market and what consumers want.

We come from a commercial background, with years of experience working on projects including retail, offices and student housing as well as one off luxury homes. This means we have a good understanding of the commercial mechanisms behind development projects and importantly, understand how to add value.

As well as designing schemes that look great, we know how to build, so we iron out issues as part of the design process.

Mixed-use, Retirement Living, Student Accommodation & more...

That commercial background we mentioned means we don't just do small housing projects. We've also got great experience across a wide range of commercial work - from retirement villages and care homes to student accommodation and HMOs. We've also worked on doctor's surgeries, car dealerships and small convenience stores, in fact it's probably easier to tell you what we haven't worked on than what we have! So why not give us a call and find out.

“As a niche luxury house builder based in the East Midlands, marcus tams architects are now an integral part of our design team and philosophy. Delivering stunning properties that are well designed, look great and on budget.”

- Adrian Kerrison, Plumtree Developments
