What do we do?

As a practice, we cover project of all sizes and scopes, from the smallest house extension and refurbishment works, all the way through to multi-million pound houses, tailoring our approach to suit the project. We cover every stage from concept and planning, through to construction and completion, so we are well-equipped to guide you through your project and development of your home.

What to do, prior to appointing an Architect?

We recommend all domestic clients refer to the RIBA's useful guide, Working with an Architect for your Home, prior to appointing an Architect. This provides a basic understanding of the role of an Architect, considerations and finding and appointing.

Why use an Architect?

We believe that the RIBA say it best - visit the RIBA website to find some further advice, from the professional body who support British Architects and introduce new people to the world of Architecture.

Why us?

We believe it's essential we build up a rapport with our domestic clients, so that they understand our role and really get to know us, whilst we get a real feel for who they are and what they require from their project.

Take a look through some of our domestic projects to get a sense of what we do.

What is the process?

We look to guide all of our domestic clients on the sometimes daunting journey of a construction project, from original enquiry, all the way through to completion. 

We follow the RIBA's Plan of Work stages and advise on the processes through each stage, alongside our design input as Architects. The stages are as follows:

Stage 0 - Strategic Definition

Stage 1 - Preparation and Briefing

Stage 2 - Concept Design

Stage 3 - Spatial Coordination

Stage 4 - Technical Design

Stage 5 - Manufacturing and Construction

Stage 6 - Handover

Stage 7 - Use

What will my obligations be?

When commissioning an architect for your home, you need to be aware of the requirements of Planning, Building Regulations, the Building Safety Act, and the HSE CDM Regulations 2015, where you will have specific roles and obligations as the 'Client' within the project. Refer to our page on the role of the Client for some further information.

Where to go for further information?

We are a member of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), holding a chartered membership as a practice. Visit the RIBA's website for further information.

All Architects in the UK are regulated by the Architects Registration Board (ARB). Visit the ARB's website for further information.
