I have worked with many architects over the last 5 years and I can honestly say Danny and Pete are top class. Eye for detail is incredible but more importantly it's the level of communication we received throughout the project life span. Great work... now onto the next project! More...

Pete&Danny have been amazing throughout the whole process of my planning application for a new build home, These guys have a wealth of knowledge and experience between them. One of the best parts to the planning application and drawings is the 3D visual photos, these are nothing short of amazing and really help you visualise what all the hard work Is really for.Thank you and i look forward to working on more projects with yourselfs in the future.

Would highly recommend Pete and Danny for any building work you’re having done. They’re extremely professional yet friendly. All our requirements were included or considered and we received a great set of plans which make it easier to translate our vision to our builders. More...

The guys have been a huge help to us through a very difficult planning process. Even before that, we found their enthusiasm and obvious enjoyment of the work infectious. Their willingness to listen and consider our ideas whilst advising, and making suggestions without ever making us feel like the rank amateurs we are is a real credit to them as well! I can't recommend them highly enough and we have re-engaged them to work on a much bigger project with us in 2019. More...

Pete and Danny did a great job on plans to extend the village hall, including coping with changes resulting from 'management by committee'. The job was done on time at a competitive price and with a high quality end product. More...

What can I say about Design Studio. Well Pete and Danny 2 great guys very knowledgeable. Completely remodeled our outdated looking 70's ugly duckling brown house to a modern clean fresh looking street statement. I tried to get planning to change the windows and failed. Danny and Pete got planning to change window's Doors Roof and rendering. What can I say if you want a job done properly then just call the experts Design work Studios They will save you a lot of time and money in the long run as I found out the hard way. "Very Happy" More...

Q&A

A lot depends on area (conservation areas are stricter), the type of house and how many car parking spaces you own. A garage is seen as a parking space so removing it may cause concern for the local council.

1. Initial consultation with us
2. Survey of garage and dwelling
3. Plans and elevation drawn up
4. Client amends and approval
5. Planning application submitted
6. Build prices and builder employed
7. Planning approval
8. Build starts, building inspector employed

Loft height minimum 2100mm. We can create additional head height with dormer windows.
Is the roof semi cut? Stair positions?

We would ideally make a site visit and provide advice when seeing the dwelling

Being able to make our clients dreams come true, we all love our homes and being able to help people create a special home where they will build a family or grow older in is very rewarding.

Drive and passion to build something big for ourselves and not someone else’s company

Because we are just like our clients. We don’t pretend to be people we are not, we win most of our work from referrals and people liking us and wanting to work with us. We’re also really really good at design and not afraid to say it.
