What Makes Harris Architects and Designers different from other architects in Mallorca?

Specialists in house design

We specialise in individual residential projects. Our knowledge of domestic architecture has become focused by extensive practical experience of different ways of living and building in different climates and cultures.

Every project is unique

Every project develops out of intense analysis of the site and the existing conditions. We do not provide formulaic off-the-shelf designs.

The design is then drawn out in close dialogue with each client, whose needs and wishes are inevitably unique, offering a source of originality for the project.

Our international clients

We have worked with a broad range of international clients from Britain, Scandinavia, Europe, the Middle East and America, and we are eager to expand our horizons further still.

Communication: English architects in spain

Our experience in different cultures and countries helps us to understand and respond to client’s individual interests and concerns whose real significance can so easily get lost.

Sharing a common understanding is fundamental both for the practicalities of the building process, and for the successful development and translation of a client’s needs and wishes into the best and most appropriate architectural solution.

Our training and experience

Our experience has focused on both contemporary design and historical heritage buildings and is reflected in our qualifications from The University of Cambridge, Barcelona School of Architecture and the Courtauld Institute as well as advisors to English Heritage and the Arts Council of Great Britain.

We are officially registered members of both the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and the Balearic Chapter of Architects (COAIB). We have more than 30 years of experience in the UK including 15 years practice in Mallorca, which has resulted in both architectural awards and international media coverage.

QUESTIONS of design


Sense of place: How can a contemporary house keep a Mallorcan spirit?

In today’s globally connected world, architecture needs to connect to the place where it stands. What makes Mallorca’s architecture unique for contemporary design?

We think 4 main factors can help to tie modern design in to the unique context of Mallorca: Climate, Natural Materials, New Ways of Living and a Sense of Place
