About Us

Established in 1994, SDA Architects is a leading RIBA Chartered Architectural design practice.  Based in Leeds but covering the whole of the UK we design highly successful buildings and environments in sectors including Education, Automotive Design, Commercial and Residential.

We are passionate about design and our dedicated team is ready to work with you.

I highly recommend working with SDA Architects. We had a need to create 150 school places through a major extension and refurbishment, and SDA were the natural choice with their experience. Throughout the development of our new Arts & Maths Centre they have offered their expertise but listened closely to our requirements, while keeping to a strict budget and offering innovative solutions. They have a collaborative approach and are readily available to speak to at all stages of the project. Andrew is always at the other end of the phone or email and has been timely at responding to any worries or queries we’ve had along the way. We’re really excited for this new innovative development which will make a huge difference for all the teachers, pupils and parents at this school.

“A representative of Audi AG spent around three hours on site today and at the end commended the building. This culminated in him saying in terms of location, construction and the team on site that he believes that we have one of the ten best sites in the world. Needless to say that I want to thank all of you and your teams for delivering this great result.”

Group Managing Director, John Clark Motor Group
SDA have worked with Audi for the last 15 years, both as Architects and Brand Guardians. They have been proactive in their approach to design and development of projects, coming up with innovative solutions where required and being key to value engineering projects to achieve design budgets. In addition to this, they have sourced materials and products from UK suppliers to improve quality of finish achieved and reducing overall cost of construction. Anthony Henson excels in terms of managing a very challenging relationship with the Audi AG corporate identity department.”

“It is such a small site, but SDA made it work and it looks great at night when the traffic on Sunset Boulevard is driving by.”

It was a real pleasure to work with SDA Architects on this project. The new dealership looks fantastic and they communicated with us throughout the whole project to make sure that it was delivered on time. They paid close attention to the budget, and really utilised their expertise on brand to deliver something that both Jaguar Land Rover and we at Jardine Motors Group are pleased with.

SDA Architects understood at the oustet of our complex refurbishment project that stakeholder management was mission critical and ultimately ensured our facilities remained live throughout the build project and the high quality end result met our requirements whilst matching the needs of Audi UK’s new corporate branding.

“88m Group had a requirement for a high class, welcoming head office to reflect our ethos as a company. We purchased a Georgian listed building in a prime location and we knew the nature of the building meant there would be some challenges.
I employed the SDA Architect’s Interior Design team because of their experience of working with the local conservation officers. Their design was sympathetic to the buildings important history.
I also felt that SDA understood my vision. They never compromised on the high-end luxury that we desired, and understood our budgetary requirements.The team were communicative throughout the whole process, and went above and beyond in the service that they provided. Their creative imagery enabled us to visualise our ideas and develop the concept.The resulting design is a hospitable and luxurious facility where 88m Group can entertain and have professional meetings with clients.I would highly recommend working with SDA Architect’s Interior Design team.”
