Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in Radlett, Hertfordshire
Nicolas Tye Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Radlett, Hertfordshire
"NTA took on a very difficult brief to sympathetically, but radically modernise a grade 2 listed house. A building well known and loved within the area. Not only did they deliver on the brief, but the end result improves almost daily and has without doubt met with the approval of the community. Whilst I have nothing but praise for the fundamental designs delivered, I actually believe that a critical component was their engagement post design and through the build process without which I think the end result would have been a disaster, despite fabulous drawings!"

Gazey Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Radlett, Hertfordshire
"I first made contact with Gareth through the Ask the Expert initiative at the Ideal Home show when we were first thinking of extending our property. When our project went ahead I found Gareth’s professional advice to be invaluable. He provided creative ideas, professional guidance, and competent, clear-sighted advice during the course of the project. The architect’s expertise and support were especially valuable during the tender negotiations with prospective builders. It’s no exaggeration to say that the architect more than demonstrated his value during this critical stage. I’ve found working with Gazey Architects a positive and enjoyable experience and I highly recommend the work of Gazey Architects to anyone considering such an undertaking. Mike Greenwood Packwood Chase Chadderton"

VORBILD Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in Radlett, Hertfordshire
"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 Radlett, Hertfordshire
"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"

MODEL Projects Ltd
Architects and Building Designers in Radlett, Hertfordshire
"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."

Martins Camisuli Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Radlett, Hertfordshire
"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."

Clifton SMR
Architects and Building Designers in Radlett, Hertfordshire
"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."
- Artichoke
Trevor Brown Architect
Architects and Building Designers in Radlett, Hertfordshire
"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."

Oakman Architecture Limited
Architects and Building Designers in Radlett, Hertfordshire
"My wife and I hired Nigel at Oakman Architecture and we had no idea of what was needed in the process. Nigel 'held our hand' through the whole process and came up with suggestions and designs to sit our needs (in London, we needed space, space and more space). From start to finish, he has helped all the way. Even when we had an issue with the drain which the builders found, Nigel came up with a new plan within hours and resolved the issue. He made a very stressful process less so and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anybody"

Architects and Building Designers in Radlett, Hertfordshire
"James did the architectural drawings for our single story kitchen extension and dealt with the planning approval process with the council. Everything was dealt with very efficiently and James was always there to answer any questions and guide me through the process. I would be happy to use James for future projects."

How do I choose the right Radlett, Hertfordshire 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 Radlett, Hertfordshire 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 Radlett 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 Radlett, Hertfordshire 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 Radlett, Hertfordshire 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 Radlett, Hertfordshire 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 Radlett, Hertfordshire 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 Radlett, Hertfordshire 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 Radlett, Hertfordshire 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 Radlett, Hertfordshire?


  • How long have you been an architect in Radlett, Hertfordshire? Are you part of ARB and RIBA? Are you part of any other associations of architectural design in Radlett, Hertfordshire?
  • How would you improve my current property and what do you think is the best use of my available budget?
  • Please can you tell me about similar projects you have undertaken and why you are the right person for the job?
  • What will be some of the main challenges?
  • Do you have experience of managing the construction phase?
  • Will you be the lead architect on this project?
  • Can you give me an overview of this project and tell me who will be doing what?
  • How long will the project take?
  • What will you charge, and will that be based on an hourly rate, a percentage of the project cost, or a fixed fee?
  • Can you recommend builders and contractors in my area?
  • Is there other expenditure that I might have missed and and how can I sensibly cut those costs?
  • What happens if there is a dispute? How would you resolve it?
  • Do you have professional indemnity insurance?
