Architects are masters of building design and can make your dream house a reality. Perhaps you would like to find architects to help you extend the kitchen and install bifold doors opening out onto a newly landscaped garden? Maybe the challenge is a loft conversion but you’re not sure how to make the most of the limited space up there? You might even wish to hire architects to help you build your own house from the ground up. Architects can help you to get a clearer idea of what is possible, both in terms of the land you own and the budget you have. They have extensive knowledge of architectural design, construction methods and building materials, not to mention a strong appreciation of ergonomics – warmth, light and flow within a property. Architects will also be far more capable of seeing the bigger picture – carefully balancing aesthetic appeal with structural safety – and navigating all those little steps from concept through to completion. And with their local knowledge, your architects will also often help to obtain planning permission and building regulations approval. More

Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers

VORBILD Architecture
Architects and Building Designers
2 February 2015
“Hired Vorbild Architecture to design a few units I was remodeling. The work they offer is that of high quality and experience. I've dealt with other Architecture firms in the past, but they've always given sub par customer service and similar results in their work ethic and craftsmanship. Vorbild is one company I would recommend for any project big or small. I will definitely be working with them in the future.”

“Emilie helped us with the renovation of our newly purchased home and we were very satisfied with the end result. She helped us navigate through some difficult choices of decoration and painting, had great teams of builders/painters/electricians/plumbers etc and throughout the entire process she demonstrated a very high level of professionalism. Emilie was always very responsive to email, would answer very quickly to email and phone calls and would come on site a least once a day, sometimes a lot more. We had a good idea of what we wanted but she allowed us to translate them in clear instruction for the builders. Emilie also came up with some great additional idea to brighten the house. She was also able to help us to execute the overall restoration at a very good price. I would recommend Emilie to anyone looking to start a new project in London. She understand what you need and how much you can spend and will make your dream house become a reality”
MODEL Projects Ltd
Architects and Building Designers
17 January 2014
“Model Projects were a delight, from the initial brief with James who immediately took my requirements and turned them into a fantastic design - spot on first time with no amendments necessary. Kathryn then took over on a day to day basis as project manager and I cannot praise her highly enough. Dealing with the local authority, building control, structural engineers and the many contractors was done with calm and determination and I now have my dream space.”
Des Ewing Residential Architects
Architects and Building Designers
4 March 2013
“We used Des and his team for a new build and renovation project in Leicestershire. From the beginning they focused on our requirements and ensured they delivered it. The building was well designed, fitted the conservation area perfectly and on budget. The DesEwing business provided a unique design that gets noticed for all the right reasons. Materials used were the best and even the choice of brick made a huge difference. We would recommend DesEwing Residential Architects without reservation. Kate Smart”

“A wonderful design for my sons bedroom, carried out beautifully. He loves his bedroom, with the centre focus being blue & cars. A really easy going, flexible lady to work with. Highly recommended.”
Woodford Architecture and Interiors
Architects and Building Designers
9 February 2015
“A really outstanding business. We used the team at Woodford to help us update an old Rectory we had purchased. Gavin developed the new design for our kitchen, en-suite master bedroom and two other bathrooms. He picked up very cleverly on existing design elements of the original Georgian rectory and incorporated these into a modern but appropriate twist for the new designs. We ended up following all Sarah's proposals for flooring, wall colours, kitchen & bathroom fixtures & fittings. She also developed beautiful ideas for curtains and roman-blinds and was able to recommend a great local company who provided the fabrication (and who did a really good job on this). In summary, their advice and professionalism was wide-ranging, great value-for-money and time-generous. Gavin & Sarah and the team at Woodford absolutely exceeded our expectations.”

“Chris completely redesigned the downstairs of our house and aspects of upstairs. He was very imaginative, which we really valued, coming up with ideas that we hadn't thought of. He clearly explained the pros and cons of each possibility, conscious of our needs and taking them into account. He had very good attention to detail eg re door handles and sometimes asked the builders to redo something if it wasn't right. He was reliable and kept to deadlines, meaning the project didn't overrun by too much. He was pleasant to work with and had a good relationship with the builders, which is extremely important. Obviously there are aspects that with the benefit of hindsight we might have done differently but overall, we were pleased with how the project went and we love our house.”
Architect Your Home
Architects and Building Designers
19 August 2014
“I employed Architect Your Home to design an extension to my house by replacing a conservatory with a new family room added to my kitchen. The kitchen was redesigned as part of the architect's brief together with a new downstairs cloakroom/WC and storage area beneath the stairs in the hall. The architect was Andrew Catto, who is based in Putney. Andrew provided an initial half day consultation and sketch drawings for me, then at my request went on to prepare among other things the scheme level drawings, permitted development application, breakdown of work and tender documentation and invitations to tender to builders, coordination with the structural engineer, party wall and other permissions documentation, and a pre-contract site meeting with the chosen builder. I consulted him by telephone and email and at my home and at his office throughout the preparation stages and he was available for queries during the build. His design was an excellent solution to ensuring both light for the enlarged space and the practical use of the kitchen and new WC and storage area. He understood our needs from the outset and met them fully. He produced what the builders said were excellent drawings and design and they followed up with a high quality build which they completed several weeks earlier than estimated. My wife and I have been delighted with the result and which impresses all of our visitors. Andrew was very professional, timely and helpful to deal with and managed my expectations and occasional minor anxieties about what I was embarking upon. I was delighted with the Architect Your Home way of working which allowed me to choose the services I wanted and to know in advance what the costs were likely to be. I recommend their service.”

“A friendly and professional practice - a pleasure to work with. Impressive timber frame design knowledge and excellent communication made this project an absolute joy - we hope to work with you again soon. So successful was this partnership that we've been jointly shortlisted for 'Best Oak Frame' at the Build It Awards 2014 - fingers crossed! Photo Credits: van Ellen + Sheryn”
