A special thank you to all our sponsors for supporting the awards. They couldn’t happen without you.
We value relationships – Clague Architects were formed over 80 years ago and we understand the value of relationships within our own team, and with collaborators, clients and communities. We value trust and strive to be a successful practice with which to be associated.
Place and context are paramount to us – Our Practice headquarters are based in the historic centre of Canterbury and we are regularly entrusted with working in historic settings, precious landscapes and in places of varied character throughout the UK and abroad. We aspire to understand, safeguard and improve the places where we work so that as well as helping them to grow and meet changing needs, we also leave them better than before.
We listen – we have no house-style and our design response varies according to place, context, collaboration and programme. We communicate – we do what we say we will do and produce drawings and imagery that communicate clearly and evocatively, whether its a masterplan concept or a joinery detail.
We believe in the power of great design and great places to improve peoples lives directly and indirectly. We are regularly in the Architects Journal top 120 UK Practices. Our current staff strength is 65 people based in offices in Harpenden, London Farringdon and Canterbury (HQ). Underlying our Practice at all levels is respect for those with whom we associate. We value the power of ideas.

Just a stone’s throw from the historic landmark, St Augustine’s Abbey, lies Neptune Canterbury. Our store design team have restored a former oast house, converting it and renovating it in true Neptune style to create our three-storey home. When you step inside, you’ll be greeted by a grand, full-height entrance hall that exposes the existing roof structure. And from there, you can meander through the wings, out into our walled garden, and then up to the bedroom attic.

We know a thing or two when it comes to giving our customers the very best. With more than a hundred delicious authentic bread lines to our name, all bursting with flavour and texture, our artisan bakery supplies a unique range of exclusive breads to the foodservice sector.
We only use 100% British wheat, providing valuable support to our farmers. And the craftsmanship we bring to everything we do gives our products that unique touch only found in handmade bakery breads.

We’re dedicated to brewing great beer and running the best pubs. Just as our beers span the range of classical, heritage and modern, so our pubs reflect the character and diversity of their locations.

Sponsoring Pub of the Year
Clive Emson Auctioneers was founded in 1989 to supply a high profile auctioneering facility to corporate and independent estate agents, private clients and statutory bodies. Our success is due to, and remains, attributable to a firm commitment to quality and service distinguished by both our Investors in People and ISO accreditations.
The concept of the Company is to provide a specialist land and property auctioneering service and, therefore, does not compete with the traditional estate agency, mortgage broking, insurance or any other aspect of the property world. All properties upon which we are instructed are offered for sale in the auction catalogue.
The 20-25,000 full colour catalogues produced for each of our auctions are available either by post or through a network of over 850 estate agency outlets throughout Southern England. Our marketing is supported by more estate agency offices than any other auctioneers practice.
