Architectural Design and Planning Applications

We are very proud of our contemporary approach to design.  Ensuring the integrity of a heritage building is tantamount, whilst recognising that contemporary architecture can enhance a period property and indeed ensure its longevity as a home is something we have become well regarded for over the years.

As conservation specialists, we have a wealth of knowledge and experience working with listed buildings and buildings in conservation areas. These are generally the most problematic and with a high level of criteria to fulfil. Our in-house architectural designers have specialist knowledge of the complicated process of gaining Listed Building Consent and have built up an excellent reputation with local planning authorities. This experience is truly invaluable and allows us to present our well received applications in a form expected by the council conservation teams, meaning we have an excellent track record in gaining permission for beautiful restoration projects and carefully considered, stylish extensions. Working closely with these teams, we can define the best way forward to maintain the integrity of the heritage building whilst moving it forward into the 21st century.  We can make all the necessary applications including any specialist surveys required, and once listed building consent is granted, we will draw up a full project build proposal working closely with our clients throughout the process.  Specialist master craftsmen are brought in to work alongside our own team every step of the way. We also create beautiful contemporary additions to traditional architecture.  Whether it be a single-storey extension to provide much-needed extra space or a larger addition, we are experts at marrying exciting new architecture with the old. If you have a listed or period home, or indeed a more contemporary home and are looking and are looking to extend, redefine the spatial usage or indeed update the interior, do get in touch. We’d love to hear your aspirations for your home – and we make a great cup of coffee! Call us on 01480 301600 or drop us a line at
