Charles Mador Chartered Architects is an award winning architectural practice specializing in leisure projects in the UK and France. The practice has carried out substantial golf, hotel, holiday resort and sports projects since its establishment by Charles Mador in 1991, and as such, the practice benefits from a broad expertise in countryside planning issues as well as the design of these building types.

Based in offices in London, England and Limoges, France, the basis of the practice is a personal service that sees each project’s individuality and the unique needs of each client. Mador Architects is a small and diverse practice, and Charles is involved with each project in a very hands-on manner.

Most of our projects are in the countryside and as a result we are very interested in the relationship of buildings to the immediate and larger landscape and we work closely with landscape designers on all of our projects. We normally use traditional materials local to the area we are working in to create the right sense of place for the users of the building.

Increasingly we are involved with ‘Green issues’ of energy conservation and carbon neutral construction methods. The opportunities for using these measures for building in countryside locations are substantial. The practice is now accredited and registered with the UK ‘’ Green Register’’ of architectural practices with expertise in this area.
