Architecture firm moves to town centre


A leading North East architecture firm has moved into new premises in Morpeth.

Seymour Architecture, founded by Paul Seymour in 2009, has relocated from North Tyneside to new offices at Sanderson Arcade’s Davison House.

The firm, formerly based at Cobalt Business Park, near West Allotment, offers a range of architectural and interior design services, as well as project management.

Its portfolio ranges from new-build offices and retail units to full housing developments and smaller-scale properties and extensions.

Sanderson Arcade Centre Manager Medi Parry said: “We are delighted to welcome Seymour Architecture to Davison House and wish Paul and his team all the very best in their new offices here.”

The move was prompted by architect Sarah Sabin, of Morpeth, joining the firm.

Mr Seymour said: “It has been an increasing desire of mine to move away from our dependence upon the car, not only from a sustainability point of view but also to improve the quality of our lives.

“My wife and I moved to Morpeth last year, further away from my previous office premises in North Tyneside.

“Sarah has also lived in the town, for nine years, and when she agreed to join the company last year, it made sense for us to relocate the office to Morpeth.

“Sanderson Arcade provides us the opportunity to embed the company within our community. We are at the vibrant, beating heart of Morpeth, and we are now both able to walk to the office.”

The company’s clients include Highbridge Properties, Ashalls, Accenture, Formica, G4S and North Tyneside Council.
