We work with homeowners worldwide. We have designated UK, US and International teams that specialise in residential projects. Property developers and retail clients can email our retail and commercial teams by clicking here.

Not all architectural services can be done remotely, but many services can. With so much of our daily lives already taking place online, being an internet-based business allows us to deliver high-standard architectural work with the convenience, clarity and affordability you may not get from your local architect. Unlike your local architect, we also offer complete peace of mind service, which means you get free revisions at a fixed price, and you can also terminate the service at any point.
No one knows you better than you know yourself, so knowing what you want can help immensely during your design process. But space planning does require expertise which you or your builder might not have. The risk of living with a mistake or missing opportunities to optimise your space can be a high price to pay. Involving an expert does not mean you loose control over your project. A good architectural designer will incorporate your wishes, validate them and introduce new solutions you may otherwise miss out on.
We understand that each project is unique, and your project manager will always match the most experienced person with the most relevant knowledge for the job.
We work with a qualified and highly experienced team of hand-picked architectural designers to guaranty the highest level of practice for our customers.
However, if you are not satisfied with the choice of designer, your project manager will offer another team member for the job.
Your satisfaction is our top priority. After getting your initial design draft, you can ask for as many changes as you like. If we feel that your requirements are not achievable, we will offer you other possible alternatives that meet your goals. If you have concerns over your design team, your project manager will make the necessary changes to your team to ensure you are happy with the level of service you receive.

If your chosen layout requires that a load barring wall to be removed, you need to get a structural engineer involved. The engineer will review the proposed design and suggest a replacement beam structure to carry the load in place of the removed wall. This may sound intimidating but is quite standard practice. It is always best to share your intensions with the structural engineer during the idea sketching phase, so that they could flag-up any possible complications and give you an idea of the costs. We can give you extra time to consult with the structural engineer. If the new beam structure impacts the design, we will update the design and produce new plans for you free of charge.
