About Us

Peak Architects was formed in 2015 by architect Paul Holden.  From the outset, the ethos of the practice was to bring a fresh approach centred on client collaboration.

The practice is led by Paul and Patrick Arends, who have over 50 years’ combined experience within the architectural and construction  industry across the globe.  The company has grown significantly and quickly built a proven track record of delivering inspiring schemes and buildings across a large variety of sectors in the architectural and interior design fields.

Clients trust us because we go out of our way to understand their needs and exceed their aspirations.  The construction industry respects us because we use cost-effective materials and building methods to make innovative architecture.

The practice works across a variety of sectors and at all scales of development. No project is too small as we enjoy the challenge and collaboration within every project. We pride ourselves on a high degree of attention to detail and a flair for innovative and modern design.
