We are committed to improving the lives of our clients through good design.

 

From our intimate design studio in the heart of Cheshire, we create functional, beautiful spaces bespoke to our clients needs and desires.


Architectural Design

We provide high quality architectural designs that suit your individual budget and needs.  

We are a RIBA Charted Practice, working closely with our professional body to provide a professional and highly skilled services and contract administration.

 

Historic Buildings

Our team have varied interests in architectural services, including historic building renovations, redevelopment and preservation of architectural assets. 

 

We pride ourselves in the ability to listen and help our clients fulfill their dreams. 

 

Measured Surveys

We carry out measured building surveys using the latest in surveying equipment to provide existing plans and elevations of your property as the basis for our proposals.

 


Professional Consultations

We provide a free professional consultation service. One of our experienced team will visit you at your home or development opportunity to dicuss your requirements, gain and understanding the project brief and complexities and help to determine the feasibility of your project before you embark upon the design process.

 

Our service areas include:

Alderley Edge; Alsager; Biddulph; Congleton; Crewe; Endon; Hale; Hale Barns; Holmes Chapel; Knutsford; Macclesfield; Mottram St. Andrew; Northwich; Prestbury & Sandbach.

 

Concept Design

Following the consulation, we will send you a detailed quotation which will outline our undertanding of the project brief and the costs associated with each stage of your project. 

 

The first stage of the process is normally Concept Design. In order to begin the design process we will need to obtain or prepare a measured building survey. 

 

Within a few weeks of the measured building survey being carried out, you will recieve our intitial proposal(s). This is just the start of the exciting journey of designing your dream home. 

Planning Applications

Once you are happy with the design, we will act as your agent during the planning application process, submitting the required documents and liaising closely with the elected case officer to give your applcation the best chance of success. We have an outstanding record for securing planning permissions within Cheshire East Council.

 

We have, on may occasions, secured planning permission for larger extensions than would normally be allowable in the greenbelt and open countryside by proving fallback positions using permitted development rights.  


Cost Control

We use the services of an independent quantity surveyor to help us create budget estimates and detailed cost plans at key stages of the design deveolpment to ensure that your project remains on budget and to a specified finish.

Building Regulations

We can develop your proposals into a fully compliant Building Regulations pacakge which can then be used for more detialed cost estimates and then for your builders, or one of our Trusted Build Partners to work from on site. 

 

New Builds

We have a portfolio of new build developments that are both beautiful and functional. We can also create 3D images of new build development, which can be very useful tools for marketing and can help to secure planning permission.


Architectural Visualisations

We can provide high-quality 3D models and realistic renderings to help you fully immerse yourself in both the interior and exterior design of your project before breaking ground.

3D models are a very useful tool, not only to visualise the design, but to spot opportunities for excellence and to develop these opportunities into detailed design. 

 

Please visit our 3D Visuals page for examples of our 3D work.

 

Design & Build

Construction projects can often be complex and involved. With many professionals all working together, communication is key to ensure that your project is delivered as you would expect it to be. We act on your behalf to ensure all contractors involved in the project are kept up-to-date with the latest decisions and drawings. We liaise with other professionals such as, structural engineers and quantity surveyors making sure the project runs smoothly. Read more here.
