Self-build architect

Few things are more rewarding than moving into your self-build home, designed and built to your exact specifications.

Whether you’re working with trade professionals, or plan to carry out most of the construction work yourself, our self-build architects will deliver the designs you need to make your dream home a reality.


Once you’ve secured a plot of land, and your self-build home design journey begins, we sit down with you to discuss your ideas in detail.

We understand that projects like this are extremely personal, so our team can be involved as much – or as little – as you want. Taking a flexible and proactive approach, they are on hand to offer ideas and industry insight at every stage, and inspiring you to think a little differently, so your final plans are both creative and realistic.

Along with our robust knowledge of the planning system and policies, we also work with expert planning consultants to help you maximise your chance of securing permission and avoiding the costs that come with a refusal.

All our designs are fully compliant with building regulations and we follow a strict build-ability process throughout. As experts in understanding how building contracts should be administered and implemented, our team will pay close attention to the feasibility of the plans to ensure every project successfully gets off the ground.

We’re also members of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and follow its seven-stage Plan of Work to ensure the highest standards for clients. Bringing together your needs and aspirations, we deliver the concept, developed and technical designs so you can successfully manage the build. Once complete, our team can visit your new home to make sure you are happy with it.

Self-build home projects bring with them a number of considerations and responsibilities, which we can help you navigate. Wherever it is located, and whatever the age and style of the surrounding buildings, your new property should complement and improve its environment.

Even if you’re working in a heritage or conservation area, we can deliver bold designs that stand out while meeting relevant regulations. Ultimately, we want to leave you with a home that reflects your style and personality, and which you will love to live in for many years – while also maximising its appeal to future buyers.
