Hello
 ︎︎︎ Projects

Hi, I’m Adam, an architect based in SW London, working nationally.

I work with private clients to design and help deliver their most personal of project — their home.



All conversations start with a hello.

Whether you are looking to use an architect for the first time, or you wish you had the last time, it would be great to hear from you.

        ︎︎︎  Hello          

Read on to understand more about the process, what working together looks like, or check out my projects.  

      ︎︎︎  Projects      

I enjoy working with homeowners who have an existing building or site in the UK, and who want the best out of it.

Challenging constraints are welcome such as listed buildings, conservation areas or properties that need a fresh rethink in order to become homes.

I devote time and care tailoring architectural services and specialist knowledge, equipping clients to build affordably and achieve a comfortable home.

Ideally each project is approached from inception through to completion in order to provide the most complete support and overall value.

Typically, a project goes through these key stages:

1. Planning
2. Technical Design
3. Construction

You will want to know how much it costs. An important part of the service is how I can cut real costs through design and add value beyond the cost of professional fees. In order to best achieve this, I need to get to know the project.

Introduce your project either by:

A) Sending a project summary such as a property listing with an accompanying brief. 


B) A free, no obligation telephone call:  
07985 264 117

C) Requesting an initial design session for a fee. This will cover:

— Meeting with you at the property, where I discuss and draw with you to identify opportinitie
— I then follow up back at my office with a hand drawn preliminary design option with 1:100 scaled sketch plans
— I discuss the implications of planning, health and safety & building regulations
— I advise on other required services (such as a measured building survey, structural engineer and/or party wall surveyor)
— Outline construction cost estimations based on typical square metre rates
— A fee proposal for architectural services and a schedule of services tuned to your specific requirements, as discussed in the design session.




The best time to approach an architect is when you are at early stages of considering refurbishing your property and want to call upon experience to realise your vision.
