Get in touch on 01937 587420 if you’d like advice or help with your ideas


As an experienced architect practices working in the Harrogate area, we’re happy to talk through your project – no matter how large or small.  Please get in touch and we’ll arrange to meet you for a chat to discuss your ideas or to maybe offer some inspiration!


How we work


Before starting work on your project, we’ll meet with you at the property to talk through your ideas and requirements.  This initial consultation is free of charge and the next step will be for us to provide you with a written quotation.

We understand that our clients want to work with well-qualified, experienced architects; Harrogate projects we’ve worked on include house extensions, remodelling and new homes.   We can provide architect services Harrogate wide including in the greenbelt and conservation areas.

Our architect services can be divided into roughly four different areas.  The initial stage of each project is the submission of a valid planning application and this is then followed by the submission of an application to cover the relevant building regulations – essential if we are to ensure that your project is built to withstand the elements and the test of time!

Once these initial stages have been completed we will then prepare construction drawings and other documents to enable you to find competitively priced quotes from builders.  After you’ve appointed a builder, our drawings can then be used your building during the actual construction.

During construction we’re happy to work closely with you to ensure that your building project runs as smoothly as possible, making any small adjustments that may be required along the way.

We are members of RIBA and use RIBA’s standard appointments.  This means that you can appoint us to carry out all, or if you prefer just one or two, of the four stages, from planning and building regulations, through to advice and assistance during construction.
