about us

Established in 2008 in Winchester, Hampshire, e.francis architects is a creative, modern architecture practice, specialising in contemporary, sustainable design. We design a wide range of commercial, residential and community projects in the South of England and London.

e.francis architects is led by Ed Francis & Klaudia Leihener and has been responsible for a diverse range of projects. Our built work currently ranges from £150K to £2 million but have designed larger schemes.

Our work is exciting and unexpected, yet is always grounded in a careful understanding of our clients requirements, coupled with analysis of the site and wider context. Sound technical knowledge and a love for detail underpin our work and allows us to deliver from concept to completion.

Between us, we have over 50 years of architectural experience, and prior to forming e.francis architects we each held senior architectural roles in London practices and worked in renown practices in both the UK and Germany. Our experience gives us a breadth of knowledge, that we can take from one sector to another, and we continue to research new ideas and approaches.

Ed is a regular member of Southampton Design Advisory Panel and has in the past taught at Portsmouth School of Architecture.

Design is the essence of why we practice, we always deliver high quality architecture, but not necessarily with the big price tag. We are fully conscious that our clients need their projects delivered on budget and on time.
