BArch / DipArch / MArch / RIBA
A RIBA-approved architect and known for her clear vision and attention-to-detail, Izzy pours energy and creativity into every project. Working closely with her clients and third-party suppliers, she’ll work with you to transform ordinary spaces into high-spec builds.
Her passion for architecture began in early childhood when she seized every opportunity she could to design elaborate dream properties! As a mother to two growing girls, Izzy brings a real-world perspective, creating functional and beautiful architecture.
She’s come a long way since then, and now sits on the committee for the RIBA Housing and Planning group. Izzy is also an external examiner for The University of Nottingham and Birmingham City University.

What Elizabeth’s clients say about working with her…
“We did not necessarily know what to expect as this was the first time we had ever used an architect, but Izzy was full of ideas and really listened to our tastes and preferences.
Due to the fact that we were renting elsewhere whilst the planning/work was being done, Swain Architecture did their utmost to ensure the planning process was completed as timely as possible. Naturally, this required lots of coordination and contact – all expertly done.
The open plan kitchen has been fantastic for family life and totally enhanced the way we live. It also gives us a great experience of the garden and being close to nature.
We get a lot of really positive comments about the large windows in the loft extension and the pillar/plant shelves in the kitchen.”
