Following the retirement of Terry Hickman Smith we are pleased to announce the formation of Lucas+Western Architects Ltd. The new practice will build on Lucas Hickman Smiths established reputation for high quality, sustainable design and will continue to work on a broad range of projects. The experienced team is transferring to the new practice in order to make the transition as seamless as possible and is looking forward to the new opportunities that this move presents.

With the new practice comes a new image and this will be developed further with a fresh website to be revealed shortly…. watch this space!

Keys to Thompson Community Hall have been handed over. This project represents the culmination of a community led process. The building will be a focal point for the village, providing much needed facilities in a striking contemporary design that is appropriate to its time and place. Sited on the Millennium Green it makes the most of the location, embracing the view and reinforcing links with the surrounding landscape.

Sheringham Montage

LHS has achieved consent for a new mixed-use building on the sea front at Sheringham. The building will replace the redundant Shannocks Hotel, at the end of the High Street.

The new development will positively enhance the conservation area and provide a lively and animated focus at the heart of Sheringham’s seafront.

The scheme includes ground floor commercial units, a first floor restaurant and six apartments, all with great sea views.
