About JCA

James Carney Architects Ltd is a design-led architectural RIBA Chartered Practice based in Kent.

Our recent re-branding of this established architectural practice in 2018 marked both a change in direction and approach.

The practice specialises in ideas rather than building type to help evolve our vision for a more joyful, meaningful and sustainable architecture.

We cover all RIBA Plan of Work Stages 0-7 from feasibility through planning to construction and completion.

We work across all types and scales of projects from small domestic work to larger commercial projects. All are carried out to the highest standards incorporating creative design solutions tailored to our clients’ needs through a collaborative approach to each project.

So whether you are bouncing ideas around, know exactly what you want, or somewhere in between and need some creative input then we would love to have a conversation with you.

Listen. Design. Inspire. are the pillars of James Carney Architects Ltd.

Thank you so much for the excellent work you’ve done for me. I’m not good at visualising how something will look but you have been so patient and explained everything so clearly that now I’m sure of what I want to do. You’ve been full of good ideas; practical suggestions and sound advice. Costs and timings are always “spot on.” Most importantly for me, you are someone I can trust. You have always been as good as your word- that’s the acid test for me. You get things done.
