About Us

We are Mike Hibbs and Seb Walsh, directors of Hibbs & Walsh, an Architectural practice based in Saffron Walden in north west Essex. We undertake work in Essex, Suffolk, Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire, and will consider commissions from further afield, having carried out works in North, East and South London, Luxembourg and the Charente area of France. As well as commissions for new houses for individual clients, we provide the architectural services required in the refurbishment and extension of all types of residential buildings, and specialise in substantial country properties, often listed buildings of considerable age and value.

We handle planning applications on behalf of householders wishing to extend or alter their properties, with improvements ranging from loft conversions to swimming pools. We can recommend suitable contractors to carry out the building works and ensure a good standard of workmanship. Recent commissions included alterations and extensions to several churches in the town, and commissions for restaurants and the construction of luxury apartments.

We have been in partnership since 1998 and in October 2012 formed Hibbs & Walsh Associates Limited. We have between us a total of over 80 years’ experience of the building process. We share our premises with well-known local Surveyors, Snow Walker Associates.
