Our Services


We know what you want from an effective service; good communication, jargon free advice and an understanding of what makes successful real homes. We understand the individual nature of homeowner projects and never forget that it is a major investment for you.


We take care of all of your approvals, are experienced in dealing with listed buildings and sustainable construction and specialise in achieving difficult planning consents.


As architects, we provide the full range of services you would expect including feasibility advice, planning design, construction drawings, project management and contract administration but tailored to your needs.


We have network of experienced consultants and can also provide you with structural engineering, party wall surveying, landscape and interior design and decoration services. We also have a network of main contractors and trusted tradesmen to call on to deliver your project.


How we work

Every project starts with an initial visit. It’s there that we gather the brief and assess your requirements so we can provide you with a fixed quote.


We then work in sequence through the various statutory approvals. Planning permission, building regulation approval and any other consents such as landlord approvals and party wall matters are all dealt with professionally and, if negotiation is required, robustly.


In terms of design we always start with the layout and your brief. We’ve now completed hundreds of homes and can quickly get to grips with the layout changes that will make the greatest improvement to any property.


Our priority for every project is to improve your homelife. We consider daylighting and outlook as the most import elements of any design. We design from the inside out, only finalising the exterior design when the functionality and space has been agreed. This approach ensures that the design is truly bespoke to your needs and your property.


Where we work

As architects in Winchester, we work locally in Hampshire and in Central London where we have ongoing projects and clients we regularly visit. Waterloo Station is only 55 minutes by train from Winchester, allowing us to manage projects in the capital as effectively as any local practice.
