Design Of Distinction

Our Architectural Designer combine beautiful space, materials and natural light to create inspirational properties tailored to your requirements. We aim to maximise the potential of your site with a creative approach to design, and we recognise the importance of fine detailing and craftsmanship in the creation of inspiring architecture.

Local Knowledge

We are familiar with the complexities of projects, including working with sensitive properties and sites with neighbours in close proximity. Our Architectural Designers also understand the requirement of each local authority, and are experienced in negotiating with planning officers to achieve the best possible results for our clients.

Our local experience has also enabled us to develop a list of recommended consultants in Essex and Suffolk, from landscape designers to home automation specialists.

Management Expertise

We are experts in managing the complete design and build process, from dealing with issues arising from planning and listed buildings to instructing works on site. Our Architectural Designer understand the quality, careful management of these allows us to provide a smooth and reliable process from initial sketches to completion of the works.


Environmental impact is a key consideration in our work, and we specify sustainable feature such as high performance insulation, materials with low embodied energy and efficient services. Sustainability is considered throughout the design process: our Architectural Designer recognise the contribution of every element of the building, rather than relying on renewable technologies as an afterthought.
