Architecture for life

Architecture is intrinsically part of our everyday lives and whether at home, work, school or just relaxing, it has an enormous impact on our well-being.

The word architect, with its origins in ancient Greece, literally means master builder and we believe that what we offer are practical and craft-based results.

By combining architecture with our skills and knowledge of industrial processes, furniture making and interior design we can better understand contextual, vernacular and functionality requirements and translate them into a built environment which delivers on both a physical and emotional level.

For us, architecture is not simply about styling, but a deeper understanding of how design and its execution can contribute to a better quality of life.


Richard Woolf and Fiona McDaniel founded the practice in 1995.
We are supported by our team of architects, architectural technologists, designers and admin staff.
We also have a wider network of contacts with structural engineers, quantity surveyors, project managers, contractors and other specialists.

Area of Business

Commercial & private clients

At McDaniel Woolf we have a wide range of skills- not only are we trained, chartered architects, we are also experienced product designers, furniture makers, interior designers and materials specialists.
This enables us to understand a project all the way from site plans and local context right down to the smallest parts and details. This range of skills means that we can respond to the needs of both commercial and residential clients, working in partnership to deliver fantastic results.


Advice & analysis

Established for over 15 years over, we have honed our skills and knowledge through working a diverse range of projects. We don't have a formula that is applied, whatever the brief. Instead we analyse the individual needs of our client, the site context, the architectural style and the budget available to deliver a solution that addresses and often exceeds expectations. Our fee proposals are tailored in response to each individual enquiry.

Outcomes and results

Our involvement through the whole life of a project ensures close control over every stage of design and construction. Whilst this is a premium service, it allows us to keep you informed throughout the process, and enables us to create the highest return for your investment, in time, quality, and of course, financially.
