The Detail

Our process is built on precision and detailed planning, to deliver an unrivalled, yet cost effective architectural solution.

Concept

Here we explored various building forms at sketch level with the client, before progressing the preferred option through to planning stages.

This sketch worked well from this angle but not others and the floor area could not accommodate the number of rooms the brief required with a satisfactory area.

We progressed this sketch significantly but found it to be too contemporary. The proposed volume exceeded a satisfactory threshold.

This option looked good on plan, however it deviates too far from the pre-existing property foot print so progressing / elevating this was inappropriate.

This option was loosely based on the elevation sketch above; the floor area was too large. As a result it was considered inappropriate to continue.

Planning Information

This option was chosen as it achieved everything the client was looking for, and was designed in a way that was sympathetic to its surroundings, ensuring local authorities would view the proposals favourably.

Working and building regulation drawings

Once planning was attained we produced the detailed working drawings. This example is typical of the level of detail we produce for each project.
