Project Types


For us, a project is neither too big or too small and no two clients or projects are the same. However all our projects combine unique design, function and value for money.


The breadth of our creativity and experience is captured in the selection of our works within our project portfolio.


Tim and Jon work as a team on every project, each using their individual skills and perspective to challenge each other and our clients to get the best from each project by asking important questions such as:

  • What’s the best way to meet your needs and aspirations?

  • Which architectural style responds to those needs?

  • What design suits your lifestyle?

  • How can we plan for long term flexibility?

  • What's the right amount to spend?


Tim and Jon first met in 2001 when they worked together as Jon Hughes Design, the practice Jon founded in 1990.


The success of that collaboration led to JHD Architects being formed in 2005. JHD Architects combines our complimentary design and technical talents with years of experience of designing and building new houses and residential extensions. 

Finding The Right Architect

​When looking for an architect to help with your project it's really important that you find an architect you get along with and trust. It's equally important that we find clients who value the high quality bespoke service we offer.

From our office in Tunbridge Wells we cover the Weald of Kent and East Sussex from the M25 down to the coast including Sevenoaks, Tenterden, Rye and Hastings.

Trust in Our Expertise


We have been working as architects for decades and we highly value the trust that each client places in our hands. The key to this is the way we listen to our clients and include them in every part of the design journey. You can trust in our expert advice to help you navigate the complex process of building and ensure that the final built design meets your aspirations.

Planning Consent


One crucial factor for any construction project is planning consent. Our knowledge of planning policies and planning authorities helps us identify the best creative planning approach and so avoid delays. We have an excellent track record for obtaining planning permission, especially for homes in Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, replacement new houses in Greenbelt land and for contemporary residential extensions to grade 2 listed buildings.

Virtual Reality 3D Models


​We use 3D design to its fullest extent, producing 3D virtual reality models for clients to ‘walk around’ before the first brick is laid. Working so extensively in 3D also our designs are matched by the reality of construction. This clarity of information saves money by avoiding costly changes on site and controlling your financial risk.
