Meet the Team

Meet the team behind the projects

Over the years we’ve looked to employ team members from a diverse array of academic and working backgrounds, with the aim to create a close-knit practice offering a unique and personal approach to all our residential & commercial projects

Peter Hoole BSc (Hons) Arch Tech


Tel: 0161 4600382

Having qualified from university in 2001, Peter went to work for a large multi-disciplined award winning architectural practice in Manchester, Abbey Holford Rowe (now AHR) gaining valuable experience working with a mix of bluechip clients.

He then went on to work for The Harris Partnership Architects gaining valuable experience working on a wide mix of commercial, retail, industrial and leisure projects with clients such as Travelodge, B&Q, McDonalds, Pizza Hut, KFC, Homebase, Wicks DIY and Aldi Stores.

Whilst the corporate & commercial world has its benefits, his passion for residential architecture has grown over the years and in 2011 he set up PJH Architectural Services.

In all walks of life, building a trustworthy and honest relationship is key. This has been the driver within the practice from the off. It’s critical to listen to client’s needs in order to be able to offer valued and creative design advice.

It sounds like a cliche, but what we do, changes our clients lives. We provide thoughtful and creative design ideas to provide better and more functional living spaces to enhance peoples/family’s quality of life.

Peter personally overseas all projects within the office and maintains close working relationships with all clients and consultants throughout all projects.

Peter’s technical background ensures that there is a smooth transition between all design stages ranging from client liaison and consultation through to planning, building regulations and detailed drawing stages as well as offering invaluable continued on-site presence throughout the build process.
