About Us

Established in 2014 by Mark Wildish, a Fellow Member of Chartered Institute Of Architectural Technologists, ArchiWildish delivers unique innovative and stylish architectural solutions to the discerning client from their office in Shipston on Stour. We understand the importance of aesthetics, form and function and look to obtain the optimum balance in every project with  distinctive and practical designs.

We strive to consistently be innovative and forward thinking with pioneering projects like our Grand Designs house and EV Charging Station, demonstrating tenacity and vision. Our ethos of creating sustainable energy efficient buildings is not just a buzz word, from the ground up our designs look to positively contribute and enhance their surroundings.

As a CIAT registered practice Archiwildish adheres to a code of conduct and upholds a high standard of service which results in a large proportion of our work coming from repeat business and referrals.

We use the latest 3D BIM technology to produce our designs, the resulting visualisations and ability to explore proposals in 3D realtime enhances the design process and understanding of the building especially for clients, but also everyone involved in the whole process.

Bringing the “Wow! Factor” to a design is something that we excel at, inspiring with our ideas we work collaboratively with our clients to produce designs that excite whilst being grounded by real life restrictions such as budget and planning.
