Creating your ideal home or business within your existing property can sometimes be a daunting task particularly when unaware of what can be achieved within the parameters of the building and plot. We will come and visit you for a free ‘dreams and aspirations’ meeting where we listen to your ideas and brief; and then assess whether this is feasible, along with any other opportunities that could be achieved. We explain how we convey the design including a possible 3D walkthrough where necessary and any legal approvals required. Contemporary or traditional; many clients have been surprised by the eventual outcome by their refurbishment, renovation, extension or change of use.


Some plots have significant accommodation or area but have not met their true potential and we have significant experience in projects which may seem unrealistic. Homes have been transformed with double height extensions producing a whole new lease of life. Redundant buildings can be demolished to make way for new bespoke architecture. For commercial developers, additional units can be discovered within existing building fabric whether this be apartments, duplex or HMO, with a view to creating optimum profit. Again, we will outline at our initial meeting what will be required throughout the design process.


Given our extensive experience in the education sector we have continued to provide architectural solutions to many schools and take great pride in ensuring the best possible environment for our future generations. At this scale of project, we undertake larger residential estate designs for developers from inception through the planning process and on to completion. We also have a reputation for providing a comprehensive technical coordination service to main contractors to ensure their project runs smoothly on site between the design and construction teams dependent upon procurement route adopted.
