Formed by Architects Emma Vaughan and Jonny Heaney, Vaughan Heaney Architects is an architectural Practice based in Ketton, Rutland, with a select portfolio of high quality work that responds sensitvely to both context and the end users needs.

With a large proportion of our experience involved in carrying out extensions and alterations to listed buildings and work within Conservation areas our aim is to put you and your building first. Working with you to create a design that fits your requirements and budget. This attitude flows from our response to the climate emergency, with the ethos of the Practice rooted in how architectural design can play its part in the essential transition towards a carbon neutral and socially just society. Vaughan Heaney Architects take a holistic design approach, working with you to establish and agree a brief based upon the current and future needs for your space. Through simple interventions we prioritise quality of space over quantity of space, creating a cohesive scheme that aligns with your brief.


Whatever the size, scale or complexity of your project we are happy to discuss how we can be of service to you. Our typical range of services are as summarised below;

  • Initial design consultation and preparation of sketch design options.

  • Production of 3-D imagery to help proposed schemes be visualised.

  • Liaison with QS/Cost Consultant to prepare budget costings.

  • Preparation of drawings/documents for issue to the Local Planning Authority, including drawings required for Listed Building Consent.

  • Preparation of drawings/documents required for Building Control Approval.

  • Compilation of Working Drawings/Specifications required for Tender Issue.

  • Procurement & Contract Administration of works.

  • On-site Inspections.

Prior to establishment of the Practice, Emma and Jonny both gained a wealth of experience on projects across the UK ranging from high end residential extensions and new-build dwellings to large scale projects in the Social Housing, Education, Leisure, Ecclesiastical, Retail and Care sectors.
