I am a chartered architect who specialises in the design, planning application and delivery of bespoke, energy efficient, custom build eco homes across the UK.
Listening to you, suggesting ideas and then delivering you exactly what you are looking for in a contemporary, turnkey house. Right down to the last tap if you wish...
If you have a plot and are ready to design your home and apply for planning permission then I can help. If you are further on and are ready to build your eco house or bungalow but need a custom-builder to build your perfect energy efficient custom build home but don't know where to start then I can also help.
As a dual UK and German qualified specialist architect I can design the perfect house for your plot. I can also achieve you planning permission and provide an estimate or fixed price quote for the manufacture, delivery and construction of your home as a turnkey delivery, or a shell-only if you wish to finish the house yourselves. I am also an appointed representative for the leading eco timber frame manufacturer Dan-Wood and work in many UK locations. Dan-Wood is the top selling custom build timber-frame house manufacturer in Germany, if that construction method suits your house design.
Building your dream house or bungalow doesn't need to be stressful !
A small selection of the varied house designs I can design and deliver, including to PassivHaus / Passive House standards if you require, are shown here :
I have teamed up with high performance timber frame house manufacturer Dan-Wood to act as an architect trained specialist house designer across the UK to deliver your dream home from conception through planning to completion...
...provide me your brief and I will deliver it stress-free !
Have a plot but don't quite know where to start ?
I can help finding the right layout for your plot and the right location for your home on it - making sure you have the best garden space possible, the best views, privacy and enough parking for your car(s).
All based on the way you live and the location and 'character' of your plot, not forgetting any planning requirements.
Quite a few of our clients build on their existing plot - either to sell the previous house after completion of the new one - or to create space for their children and grandchildren close-by. This is a good way of balancing costs and maximizing the value of your plot.
I have experience in 'phased developments' and can make sure they work at each stage !
I also do master planning and land development joint ventures for small developments of more than two houses.
the design process
I use good old-fashioned hand sketches as well as high-quality 3D models to guide you through the design process and to explain how your home will work.
Seeing the internal spaces in 3D is much easier than interpreting 'flat' floor plans and elevations - especially if you are not used to it.
I design and construct custom build eco-houses, often based on timberframe construction in Cheshire, Manchester, Yorkshire, Lancashire, Peak District, Alderley Edge, Hale, Wilmslow and all over the North West and the UK.
