Based in Nottingham, we are a small practice with a growing reputation for high quality residential homes - people are loving the new ones we design and the old ones we transform. Whatever the requirement we apply time, skill and flair to make each project unique.


If you have a project, we have the know-how. So why not give us a call and see what we can do for you.

We are a design-led architectural practice based in Nottingham specialising in residential projects across the East Midlands.


We have a wealth of knowledge, skills and experience gained from 20 years in the business, which we draw upon to make your project both unique and as straight forward as possible.


From master-planning, to new builds, renovating and remodelling an existing building or simply adding an extension to the home you love, we are here to help.

W H O    W E    A R E

We have designed, built, extended and renovated countless clients' properties (as well as our own), so we know just how much your building project means to you.


It's a personal thing and although it might not be the largest or most complicated build, you want it done just right.


You want the right advice, the right design, the right service and most of all the right architects - and that's us!

W H Y    C H O O S E    U S

We offer a complete package of architectural services to suit every client's needs.


From our first meeting we set out a simple step-by-step approach, from getting your ideas down on paper to appointing a builder.


We provide simple to understand documents including contracts and always tell you what we'll do and how much it will cost every step of the way - and it's all backed by our Professional Indemnity insurance cover.

PERIOD EXTENSION  | Risley, Derbyshire | December 2012


Situated on a prominent corner plot in an idyllic Derbyshire village, this traditional three bedroom detached house was in need of some serious love and attention. Even though the site was on greenbelt land, in a conservation area, we helped the client through a very protracted planning process to add an additional 80sqm of development and a 3 car garage in the grounds.

This year promises to be our best yet, with a variety of exciting projects, large and small - from restaurant extensions, to care homes, apartments to workshops and under-pinned by the usual spread of residential work that we love to excel at.
