I am Richard Stirrup, a bi-lingual architect registered with the “Ordre des Architectes Midi Pyrénées”, and for over 9 years I have helped many clients by bridging the gap both to bureaucrats and building contractors. I work with skilled, experienced technicians and surveyors and we carry out projects throughout central and southern France. 

So, whether you want to 

  • build a new home

Please contact me and I will give you a free consultation by phone.
