Carl Andrews

Director of Soul Architects

Carl graduated from De Montfort University with a BA in Architecture, later gaining a Diploma in Architecture and a Post Graduate Diploma in Architectural Practice.

He is a Chartered member of the Royal Institute of British Architects, registered with the Architects Registration Board and is an Accredited Architect in Building Conservation (AABC). Carl is also a member of the Institute of Historic Building Conservation (IHBC) and the Ecclesiastical Architects and Surveyors Association (EASA).

Soul Architects was formed by Carl after working for 16 years with a leading national conservation practice. During this time he gained an abundance of experience working on many well known historical buildings including Ely Cathedral and Weston Park Museum, Sheffield. This has fostered his love of old buildings and he is passionate about conserving them to the high standards that he demands.

Carl has extensive knowledge of historic buildings and their surroundings and understands that the designs of buildings are subject to constantly evolving issues such as planning legislation, environmental impact assessments and building regulations.

Committed to delivering quality projects, on time and within budget

Soul Architects aim to provide you with a professional service and a design that you will be thrilled with. We work on a diverse range of building projects which include listed buildings, regeneration schemes, alterations, conversions and extensions.

Carl takes time to build lasting relationships with his clients and contractors, allowing him to work closely with them to complete first-rate projects.

‘He is highly professional as an architect specialising in historic buildings, with a creative energy coupled with technical competence’

Oliver Caroe, Director Caroe Architecture Ltd, Surveyor to St Paul’s Cathedral and Ripon Cathedral

‘It is easy working with Carl on projects, as he is a good listener. He does not seek to impose his own views, but strives to consult and be constructive to achieve the best results.’

Bob Rabagliati, Bailiff and Estates Manager
