Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in Borough, Greater London
Architects and Building Designers in Borough, Greater London
"Stephen is a fantastic architect, with great attention to detail, a superb ability to make best use of space and always aware of the best perspectives of the work he proposes. He is very talented at maximising both space and light. He is very good at liaising with planners and is very skilled at getting the most he can get away with, while not wasting time/money on what is unachievable. We have worked with him on several projects and have always been extremely happy with his work. We have never had to chase him, in fact quite the opposite - he is always a step or two ahead of us. Although not an interior designer, he is always coming up with interesting ideas and always has great taste. Our last 2 projects with Stephen ended up on the front cover of magazines. He is very proud of the work he does and we cannot recommend him too highly."

VORBILD Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in Borough, Greater London
"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."

Des Ewing Residential Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Borough, Greater London
"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"

Martins Camisuli Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Borough, Greater London
"Martins Camisuli designed and project managed a new kitchen project in my home. I wanted something individual and crafted. It involved complete remodelling of the space, removal of walls and the design and manufacture of bespoke kitchen units. They were responsive to my ideas, creative and enthusiastic. I found it very easy to communicate with them and the works were completed on time and on budget. I think the choice of materials and overall design are warm simple and enduring. I would be very happy to have the opportunity use them again."

Trevor Brown Architect
Architects and Building Designers in Borough, Greater London
"Trevor Brown was a pleasure to work with. We started with a humble idea of replacing a structurally unsound kitchen with something a bit nicer, and he transformed the project into a fabulous piece of architecture. Trevor is knowledgeable, and has an ambitious attitude to even simple projects. By paying attention to both the structure and the details of the kitchen, Trevor created a space which is a beautiful space and also very functional. Trevor is a busy man, but he replied to emails, and answered the phone when we had queries. He worked well with the construction team and they were able to take a pragmatic approach to solving problems along the way. We exceeded the original budget, but that was at least in part because we chose more expensive options when Trevor offered us choices."

Clifton SMR
Architects and Building Designers in Borough, Greater London
"Artichoke has worked with Mark and Rosie for longer than most of us can remember. They are both hugely knowledgeable and experienced with a fantastic back catalogue of successful residential projects to their name. Combining interior design with architectural services in the way they do makes projects simpler and it adds a huge amount of value. They are also both great fun to work with."

How do I choose the right Borough, Greater London architect?

Begin by determining the type of architectural service you require. Is it merely advice that you need? Or a detailed set of architectural design plans? Are you hoping to add a single-storey extension or are you really looking for someone to design you a custom home and handle construction management right through to completion? One of the most important duties of full service architects in Borough, Greater London is to serve as project managers and supervise most aspects of construction as well as facilitate communication between all other contractors.

Architecture is an incredibly technical profession and one where getting things wrong can literally put lives at risk, so do background checks on your Borough architect. Check they are registered with architecture associations such as the Architect’s Registration Board (ARB) and The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA). Being part of an architecture association means that an architect or architecture firm has met certain standards, qualifications and practices, and can be held accountable if they don’t meet these standards. It’s advisable to choose architects that specialise in the kind of project that you are undertaking as their existing experience will shine through in the completed design. Look for an architect in Borough, Greater London that can provide references and reviews of their previous work.

Once you have determined the service level you need, your next consideration will be architectural style. Some architects specialise in designing for traditional housing such as period cottages and country homes, or even in designing modern replicas in a period style. Others have a knack for imagining bolder, more futuristic architectural design in Borough, Greater London incorporating the latest green technology. Check their Houzz profile and website for examples of previous work. Early on, try to gauge availability – there’s no point in choosing an architect that’s going to be booked for months if you have a tight deadline. Some architects are happy to do all their work online or over the phone with you, but if you’d prefer to work with an architect in person then check that your chosen architects in Borough, Greater London will travel to you.

What is the process to hire an architect?

At the first meeting, preferably at your property or building site, give as clear a picture as possible of the kind of home you are trying to create to your architects. Chat through your goals, projected budget, scope of work, schedule and feedback, together with any very specific requirements you might have. It is crucial that your architects are clear about their responsibilities and that these are documented in the contract. Ask them to walk you through the process, including the number of architectural design consultations, site visits and what they will be delivering and when, e.g. feasibility study, a technical drawing, tender package and/or planning application drawings. They could illustrate this using a previous client’s project. Also, what does the architect need from you? Deeds, rights of way, deposit, staged payments etc. Once you have covered all this detail, you are ready to make your choice and get started. The architecture company in Borough, Greater London that you hire will likely start with concept drawings and finish with construction drawings and documents. Some firms even design with 3D renderings, CAD and videos, but this is by no means essential.

What makes a good architect?

You are looking for architects in Borough, Greater London that have the right balance of creative flair, technical nous, practicality and impeccable service to see you through. Get a sense of whether they are a good listener, collaborator and problem solver. Checking their references will also be invaluable at this stage so look at their Houzz profile for past customer reviews. Ask to speak to previous clients, particularly regarding their responsiveness and ability to work creatively around a budget.

How much does hiring an architect cost?

There is no set payment structure for an architect. Some Borough, Greater London architects will charge an hourly rate, others base their fees on a percentage of the total construction cost or propose a fixed fee (payable in instalments) for projects such as house extensions or a complete home design. You may wish to pay in stages to safeguard against any possible dissatisfaction with the quality of service. Make sure the total figure and payment schedule is agreed as part of your contract, particularly if you are trying to accurately estimate the cost of building a house.

What are the important questions to ask architects in Borough, Greater London?

  • How long have you been an architect in Borough, Greater London? Are you part of ARB and RIBA? Are you part of any other associations of architectural design in Borough, Greater London?
  • How would you improve my current property and what do you think is the best use of my available budget?
