A family practice since 1847, LSN Architects offers architectural design, technical advisory and project management services across a wide-ranging portfolio from small domestic projects to large commercial developments throughout Devon and the South West.


We are one of the oldest architecture practices in the country, started in 1847 by Humphrey Abberley and continued through partnerships with Messrs Rowell, Locke, Land, Newcombe and their sons. The practice has played a role in designing much of the conservation heritage around Newton Abbot and Torquay throughout the last 150 years, has endured two world wars and any number of industrial and technological revolutions, and today the practice still holds a strong and important position in the local community.


Given our beautiful setting in the heart of South Devon, it is no surprise that architectural heritage, careful design and sensitivity for the environment form the backbone of the way we work at LSN. As a small practice based in Newton Abbot, we pride ourselves on the ability to deliver high quality, sensitive design, a comprehensive and professional service, and strong relationships with the local authorities and business communities.
