Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in Stokenchurch, Buckinghamshire
Concept 8 Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Stokenchurch, Buckinghamshire
"I hired Concept8 for a complete renovation project of a 4,000sqf family home over 12 months in 2013-14. The Concept8 team was responsible for architectural design, organizing tenders, sourcing contractors & materials, monitoring the entire process onsite & dealing with all contractors from start to hand-over (and beyond). I found in Concept8 a team of dedicated professionals, able to listen to our needs, highly knowledgeable in their domain, well-connected with a large network of professionals in the construction business, without which my own personal project would not have been a success."

Mailen Design SW
Architects and Building Designers in Stokenchurch, Buckinghamshire
"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."

Lynn Palmer Architects Ltd
Architects and Building Designers in Stokenchurch, Buckinghamshire
"Lynn Palmer Architects was recommended to me. What a recommendation it was! We dealt with Lynn from start to finish, her professionalism and knowledge made her very easy to work with. My husband and I both work so she was happy to come to our home in the evening. We talked through several build options with her. She was patient and enthusiastic and always happy to answer any questions that we had. Her portfolio of recommended builders made the tender process so easy too. I would have no hesitation in recommending her."

Absolute Architecture & English Cross
Architects and Building Designers in Stokenchurch, Buckinghamshire
"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!"

INSPIRATION Chartered Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Stokenchurch, Buckinghamshire
"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
Riach Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Stokenchurch, Buckinghamshire
"Very helpful service. We have worked with them on two planning applications in an environmentally sensitive green belt area as well as Grade 2 listed farm house. Both applications were granted without appeal. We are currently approaching the start date of the conversion of the large barn 6,800 sq. ft., into a live work space. I will keep you posted, with the final star when we are moved in."

Building Tectonics Ltd
Architects and Building Designers in Stokenchurch, Buckinghamshire
"Our conservatory included a kitchen, dining room/lounge with no doors & a plastic roof so we were very cold in the winter. We contacted Building Tectonics who transformed our uncomfortable space into a very light garden room by taking the walls down between the kitchen & dining room/lounge & adding a proper roof. We now enjoy cooking, eating & relaxing in a great open space"

How do I choose the right Stokenchurch, Buckinghamshire 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 Stokenchurch, Buckinghamshire 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 Stokenchurch 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 Stokenchurch, Buckinghamshire 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 Stokenchurch, Buckinghamshire 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 Stokenchurch, Buckinghamshire 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 Stokenchurch, Buckinghamshire 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 Stokenchurch, Buckinghamshire 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 Stokenchurch, Buckinghamshire 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.
