What do we do?

Established in 1985, we are one of the leading architects in Essex.  Our experienced design team provides a comprehensive range of architectural design services including house extensions, services and interior design, and new housing. Our commercial architects are also busy supporting developers working on projects such as new housing developments, restaurants, office buildings, and warehouses. We are specialist architects in Essex.

We will carry out an initial site visit to discuss the design process, define if you need to obtain planning permission, or understand if your project can be completed within the permitted development rules.

We have an abundance of experience in carrying out barn conversions, house extensions, loft conversions, newbuild homes, and specialist expertise on listed buildings. We have excellent relationships with the local planning authorities and are very familiar in dealing with the complex planning regulations governing green belt and brownfield development and have a good success rate with obtaining planning permission.
