What we do at Added Value Architecture. Architects in Congleton, Cheshire

Added Value Architecture prides itself on adding value to architectural projects. Based in Congleton, Cheshire, we specialise in residential architecture, exploring permitted development rights and obtaining planning consents. We design 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 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.  


What we believe 

We think that home is the most important place in the world and being able to enjoy your home to its full potential is very important. Space to enjoy family time, connecting 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.

"After careful consideration, Karen reconfigured the layout of my downstairs rooms. She quickly identified a possibility and understood how it could work for my family. The outcome has been a huge success. I have an amazing combined kitchen and dining room with separate snug. The house works beautifully and gives us areas for relaxing alongside a sociable kitchen which has become the heart of our home.

Everyone is so impressed with the spaces Karen has designed. She has given us further inspiration for fittings and fixtures which have been innovative and affordable. I cannot recommend Karen highly enough."  J Nash, Poynton
