Added Value Architecture

We are local architects based in the heart of Cheshire, with branches in Alderley Edge and Congleton. We serve nearby towns such as Wilmslow, Knutsford, Prestbury and Macclesfield as well as parts of Staffordshire. 


We specialise in residential architecture, utilising permitted development rights and obtaining planning consents when required. We design and build home extensions, alterations, and new dwellings to improve the functionality, enjoyability, saleability or market value of a property or plot, for homeowners and property developers. 

Our Mission

Our mission is to add value to every project we undertake. This may be by improving the layout and usability of spaces, capturing views and making connections with the landscape, maximising daylight, adding extensions, changing the use class (e.g. office to residential), or gaining permission to construct another building on the site. All of which can increase the market value of your property or land. 

Home Reconfigurations and Extensions

We always encourage our clients to explore the potential of their existing home before considering extending it. Through clever reconfiguration, we can often improve the feeling of space in your home without adding a home extension.  


We believe that home is the most important place in the world and being able to enjoy your home to its full potential is essential to your well-being and happiness. Space to enjoy family time, connect with your garden, and somewhere to retreat in your own little hideaway are all ingredients to a happy home life. 


Whether you are modifying your home for your own benefit, or thinking about future dwellers, we can help you to make the best choices for your budget. 

Green Belt and Open Countryside

We have particular expertise in maximising the potential of dwellings in the green belt and open countryside, where the size of extensions can be limited. We have successfully gained consent to add large home extensions to dwellings that have already been extended by more than 50%. In many cases, it is possible to double or treble the floor area of your home.
