About Us

BHPH Architects are an award-winning architecture & design practice based in Box, Wiltshire & Wantage, Oxfordshire. Each one of our commissions adopts a unique and intuitive approach, reflected in the diversity of our projects which span across the residential, leisure, commercial and retail sectors including conservation, listed buildings, new-builds and renovation. Our projects demonstrate the versatility with which we work across multiple scales and typologies.

Formed through the merger of two successful practices with a long standing history of collaborative working (Harwood Group Practice & BHP Architects), the practice was established in 1993 by Chris Harwood & Bogdan Nedelkoff. Since then, we have built a reputation for designing beautiful and holistic spaces and buildings that are in harmony with their social, material, and cultural contexts.

It is our strong belief that architecture and urban design should strive to make a positive impact on sustainability, the existing and new communities around our buildings and enhance the surrounding setting. This should not come at the expense of our clients or beautiful design, on the contrary we aim to provide our clients with viable design solutions that can give back to the surrounding environment.

We ensure that we deliver excellence in every respect throughout the design process by working closely with our clients. Our wide-ranging experience and expertise guarantees that we achieve environmentally friendly, economic, buildable and elegant designs that not only fulfil the needs of our clients and the end user but also ensure the maximum return on our client’s investments.  


Evolving and adapting to the cultural, social and technological shifts in recent years, we are invested in our communities and the partnerships we've created. Something that has always been of great importance to us are the people that make up the practice, as such we recognize and encourage individual growth, health & wellbeing, provide a great work environment and most importantly a good life to work balance.
