Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in Huish, Wiltshire
Absolute Architecture & English Cross
Architects and Building Designers in Huish, Wiltshire
"Absolute Architecture was a joy to work with. Kate Cooper and her team worked with a tiny, decrepit home, large garden and stables from 1908 and turned the property into a show piece. They were sympathetic to the original design and area while making the home user friendly and comfortable for contemporary residents. They were knowledgeable about the many local laws and guidelines and used the best local craftsmen for the renovation and addition, all in a timely, warm manner. We are so proud of our lovely home; it came out truly beautiful. Thank you Kate!"

Mailen Design SW
Architects and Building Designers in Huish, Wiltshire
"We've worked with Ben and team over the last 7 years on a number of commercial projects, all restaurant builds for Chilango. Over that time, he's grown his practice, but always maintained the same high quality work, and client-first attitude. A keeper."
- Dan Houghton
OB Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in Huish, Wiltshire
"I have instructed OB Architecture on three major projects and can thoroughly recommend them for their design skills and client interface. One was a luxury 5,000 sf house in Henley on Thames whose design has exceed all expectations. The second a block of 9 apartments and ground floor commercial in London SE1 and the third a 9 acre site in West Berkshire upon which I hope to secure permission for a country house. The latter is ongoing The house and London project were completed satisfactorily in no small measure to Olly Bray and colleagues' skill and dedication. The practice which is young, brings a fresh and new outlook. All great stuff"

Kennet Design Ltd
Architects and Building Designers in Huish, Wiltshire
"Kennet Design were so professional from beginning to end of our extension project and we really felt we had a personal touch and that they really cared about our plans and vision. The plans that were drawn up were brilliant and gave our builders the precise information they needed to carry out the work to regulation standard - even in a way that we understood, so we could keep an eye on the build and progress. Thank you to the team for making our first experience of house renovation such a great one!"

INSPIRATION Chartered Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Huish, Wiltshire
"We found Inspiration through AECB as we wanted to build an environmentally sound house in the garden of the listed thatched cottage where we had lived for 30+ years. Inspiration understood our brief brilliantly and ten years later we are very happy (warm and dry) in our EPC 'A' rated house that costs much less to heat than we receive from our Pv. Would have had five stars apart from their recommendation of a builder........ The quality of the build was excellent - the final builder's bill not so good."
- Roch Garrard
AR Design Studio Ltd
Architects and Building Designers in Huish, Wiltshire
"Imaginative & forward thinking. Work well to satisfy clients' requirements without compromising on architectural detail. Always willing to explain and educate their clients, including them in the process. Invaluable for completion of our project. Generous with their time and advice. Would like to work with them again and recommend most highly."
- Alex Nicholls
Milton Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Huish, Wiltshire
"We employed Milton Architects to help us with a major (for us) project in transforming our rather quirky 1911 house. The project took c10 months and we made it more difficult for the architects and contractors by choosing to live in different corners of the house while work carried on around us. We are delighted with the end result. Mike Milton brought many innovative elements to the overall design and equal emphasis was placed on the practical considerations such as construction, plumbing, electrics and sourcing. The project incorporated constructional changes, renovations and improvements, two new extensions and a few demolitions. MA handled the project management very well, first through Mike and then his colleague Ros Leverett. The project - having allowed for the constraints and problems encountered along the way (asbestos, rotten timbers, crumbling foundations ...) was very close to the original budget and timescale, and the interactions with the construction company exemplary. So in conclusion we are very pleased to recommend Milton Architects highly and unreservedly for any project remotely similar to our own."

Martin Blake Associates ltd
Architects and Building Designers in Huish, Wiltshire
"Martin took our run-down, dark and damp, turn of the century house and transformed it into a light and contemporary home. He struck the perfect balance between modern and traditional and made the whole house so much more usable and practical. He maximised the south-facing aspect with a new kitchen-diner with lots of light and made the garden feel part of the house. He transformed a pokey roof space with higher ceilings, light tubes and velux windows. Without the 'before' photos, it's difficult to believe that such a transformation could be possible. Martin designed and managed the entire project and successfully mediated between us and the main contractors when we didn't see eye to eye. We definitely won't shop around for an architect when we undertake our next project, we'll just talk to Martin."
- Martin Dell
JOMA Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in Huish, Wiltshire
"JOMA Architecture built a cleverly designed extension to our Edwardian house in 2016. This was not the standard box extension seen so often but an imaginatively conceived re-working of a period house blended with a completely modern redevelopment of the rear of the house (complete with roof garden). The resulting building continues to delight us and all who see it."
- Adam Baillie
Allister Godfrey Architects Ltd
Architects and Building Designers in Huish, Wiltshire
"We have worked with Allister Godfrey Architects on a number of residential projects and have found them to be very easy to work with, have a great attention to detail and enjoy a collaborative approach to design. We would highly recommend Allister and look forward to undertaking our next project."

How do I choose the right Huish, Wiltshire 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 Huish, Wiltshire 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 Huish 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 Huish, Wiltshire 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 Huish, Wiltshire 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 Huish, Wiltshire 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 Huish, Wiltshire 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 Huish, Wiltshire 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 Huish, Wiltshire 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 Huish, Wiltshire?

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