We look to the future and are proud that our practice is built on strong foundations

Space Architects was founded by Arnold Waring and Leonard Netts in Newcastle-upon-Tyne in 1957. The practice was recognised for its quality social housing and, as a result, its work grew steadily in size and scope. It, expanded into the education, commercial and health sectors and cemented its reputation with an award-winning portfolio. 

In 2005 the partnership became a limited company and in 2007 the company moved into a new headquarters – Spaceworks, in Newcastle. Our interior designers created our new environment to promote our developing culture. 

In the same year we expanded into Yorkshire, with a base in Leeds. In 2008, on our 50th birthday, we re-branded as Space Group in response to our increasingly diverse portfolio. After continued successes, we opened up our Manchester office in the heart of the city centre in 2009. In 2011 we opened offices in Hull and London. And more recently in 2016 we’ve opened our Middlesbrough office.

Our purpose is to make the architectural world better for everyone. Our vision is to set the pace in everything we do. We are setting the pace in the industry.

Generating a future

At Space Architects we build on and learn from the past, but we always look to the future. We’re dedicated to understanding your business, your plans and your objectives.

We believe our clients’ success is our success. So we look to build long-term relationships, where we can help you succeed both today and in the future.

We’ are always looking ahead and constantly considering how we can improve the quality, reduce the costs or save time on each project we undertake.

In recent years we’ve invested in digital technologies, sustainability and offsite fabrication, all of which we believe will all be part of the future for the design and construction industry.
