Feel free to contact our friendly office by phone or email to discuss your wishes and requirements, we will then arrange an informal visit to your home / proposed site to provide you with a free consultation & no obligation quote, during our visit we will evaluate the feasibility of your proposal with regard to planning requirements, we will then advise you of the best options to enable you to achieve your goal as quickly and efficiently as possible. Don’t worry if you are unsure of exactly what it is you are looking to achieve, we really come in to our own here, often this will be the first time our clients have commissioned an Architect or building design service. We are here to help and guide you every step of the way, and we can confidently say that our designs almost always exceed the expectations of our customers.

Once we have been instructed by yourselves we will carry out a survey of your property / site, taking measurements, photos to obtaining relevant information. At this stage you are welcome to provide us with ideas, photos, magazine images and inspiration, this is not essential, we are passionate about what we do and will always design all projects ensuring they are aesthetically balanced, and in keeping with their surroundings, this can be in the form of traditional and historic style architecture to modern contemporary designs or a combination of styles where fitting. Our designs will always ensure the best possible, flow and function of each space, maximising on Natural Light for a holistic warm and homely Environment & modern Lifestyle. Layouts popular with many clients include Modern, open or Broken plan living (Kitchen / Diner and Family space with a seamless connection to the Garden / outdoors) Stunning aesthetics with balanced and harmonious designs are all key aspects of our designs to provide fantastic kerb appeal (with no 2 projects ever being the same).

Transforming homes through careful and considered design to significantly transform you and your family’s lifestyle is exactly what we do, our designs ensure holistic, warm and homely spaces with optimum natural light and where relevant a seamless flow and connection to the outside space brining the outside in. We consider all of your functional and practical needs whilst designing the most stunning & welcoming spaces. Sustainable design is right at the heart of our ethos, our designs look to work with and enhance Bio diversity and the natural environment.

We are acutely aware that the construction industry is one of the largest contributors to climate change, however through design we can significantly reduce the impact with a thoughtful and considered approach without costing the earth, in fact when specified correctly new materials and technologies will look to lower your short term and long term costs of the building. Not only is this essential for the longevity of your home and natural surroundings, it is also fundamental to ensure you achieve and surpass all of the latest stringent Planning and Building Regulations requirements.

Building Regulations Full plans – Package

Once Planning approval has been achieved we can also provide a separate Building Regulations “Full Plans” drawing service, in fact more than 90% of our clients tend to use our Building Regulations Full plans services. Our Building regulations drawings are very detailed and tailored to suit your needs, we include clear construction information for all elements of the proposal. Once approved, the drawings, coupled with Structural Engineers Calculations, details & sketches will ensure the proposals comply with all of the required elements of the Building Regulations approved documents etc. Our Building regs drawings are more than sufficient for any competent builder to complete the building works on site and ensure Building Regulations “sign off” is achieved on completion of the build process.

We have regularly been told by builders carrying out the works that our drawings are incredibly helpful and amongst the best they have worked with. As our drawings are very detailed, (and as long as you use an experienced contractor) our projects do not tend to require project management, this coupled with our Structural knowledge, utilised throughout the design process will save you significant costs overall, We work with Highly experienced local Structural Engineers who use our drawings and designs to create their Structural Calculations and sketches. Again saving significant costs negating the requirement for expensive full Structural Engineers Drawings in most scenarios.
