Huw Griffiths Architects is a multi-disciplinary team of
Architects + Designers based in South Wales + Surrey


Founded by Principal Architect Huw Griffiths in 1988, HGA has undertaken an extensive range of award-winning projects across the UK. We design in response to the historical, social and environmental context of site and circumstance, delivering practical, sustainable architecture.

We have worked extensively with listed buildings, often within Conservation Areas and strict site constraints across South Wales, as well as a range of bespoke domestic, commercial and public projects. We have long-standing relationships with various charitable institutions, having undertaken a number of grant-funded commissions for national organisations including the YMCA, RSPCA and more recently, the Boys’ and Girls’ Clubs of Wales.

Recent and ongoing projects include bespoke contemporary dwellings on the Gower Peninsula, a lottery-funded Community + Enterprise Centre for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Wales, and Swansea University Life Sciences Building.

Principal Architect Huw Griffiths is currently Treasurer of the West Wales Branch of the Royal Society of Architects in Wales (RSAW), the RIBA’s voice in Wales, and has completed an MA in Historic Building Conservation.


Our work has received endorsements from the Design Commission for Wales and featured in various publications, including the Architects’ Journal. We have been recognised by a number of Welsh Design Guides for our sensitive architectural approach, preserving and enhancing the integrity of our projects and their setting through contemporary, site-specific solutions.

The Practice has been highly commended on a number of competition entries, including the extensive refurbishment of the Grade I listed Cyfarthfa Castle, and S4C’s headquarters on the Carmarthen Campus of University of Wales Trinity Saint David, both of which were shortlisted, achieving second and third places respectively.


We are an RIBA  Chartered Practice and an ISO 9001, 14001 + 18001 Registered Firm.
