We engaged Locksley Architects to redesign a derelict family home built in the 1960s in Barnes, London. Locksley provided following services:1. Drawings Existing & Proposed2. 3D Model & renders3. Submission of planning permission4. Detailed Drawings of every detail5. QS costings of renovation/adaptation project6. Tender submission7. On site project managementWe found Locksley Architects to be professional, engaging, detailed and committed to provide an excellent service. Chris is clearly passionate about the service he provides of beautifully designed homes. Not only does he focus on the core of his business in this regard, he underpins it with a professional approach based on efficient and prompt service, honesty and openness. I myself run a Property and Financial Services practice and appreciate the effort, thought, commitment and cost in providing such a high quality service.Highly recommended More...

My experience with Locksley Architects has been nothing short of great. Their understanding of our vision and ability to maneuver the project through the myriad of challenges it encountered, has turned a daunting task into an exciting and rewarding experience. They provided fundamental, knowledgeable professionalism, boundless enthusiasm and creativity, as well as consistent, flawless execution with every aspect of the project. I would hire them again in a heartbeat. More...

Locksley Architects are helping us with the extension and complete refurbishment of our family home in Notting Hill. Initially we did not intend to use interior designers, but in Locksley Interiors we found a perfect combination of architectural, design and project management expertise and a service tailored to our needs. As a busy working family, we have long been daunted by the effort required for a complete house overhaul project – Locksley takes us through it step by step and makes it happen. Chris, Fiona & Marijke are easy to work with, patient, flexible as well as highly professional and very knowledgeable. They have come up with many great ideas but they have also always listened to what we wanted. We highly recommend the Locksley team and their service. More...

Locksley Architects were a real find! They took control of our build and saw it through safely to the end! We'll actually miss going to meetings with them in their Westbourne Studios office!

Worked closely with Locksley Architects over many years and they are always enthusiastic and positive to any challenges we put their way. I would highly recommend them!

Chris and the team recently help me transform a flat from complete dilapidation into something of splendour. Chris was there with me every step of the way - I asked him to come for one hour to give me his opinion and he ended up completely redesigning the space, recommending fantastic builders, helping me choose fixtures and fittings and acting as my Q. S. I can't recommend him enough (and in fact have recommended him to several friends - which I don't do lightheartedly). More...

I strongly recommend Chris from Locksley Architect. He successfully supported me to obtain listed planning consents to completely renovate my flat in Notting Hill. Provided thorough detailed advice for the lengthy planning application process and re-designing of the flat layout, including several iterations to get listed consent approval. Was also very helpful for the tender process and giving instructions to building contractor, as well as providing advice for decorations of the flat. Very friendly and flexible approach with moderate fees relative to peers. More...

Chris at Locksley Architects has literally changed our living space and our lives. Throughout the project (kitchen side-return extension) he listened, advised and guided us. He had excellent ideas but was never pushy if we wanted something different. He literally held our hands from the beginning of the project to end and made our vision happen. Without doubt I would recommend him to friends and family, and have done. More...

Locksley Architects offered excellent professional advice on a number of planning and construction issues. We dealt directly with Chris Smith whom was exceptionally personable, expert in the local planning matters and offered practical solutions with a sense of bespoking all at reasonable costs. We used them on our house extension and refurbishment in Kensington in a conservation area.I would highly recommend them. More...

I can't recommend Locksley Architects enough. Chris is inspiring, thoughtful and will be there with you as much or as little as you want on any building project. He helped me enormously on a recent renovation and made a process that could have been tricky into something much more straightforward. I bought a wreck in a probate sale and now have a beautiful flat. More...

Really grateful for some sound and accurate advice when I needed it. Happy to give me plenty of other ideas for my project and willing to discuss alternatives. Has good knowledge of the market and what works best and is most cost efficient. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend. More...

We had problems with our previous Architect/Builder, and were recommended to Chris and Locksley & Locksley Architects through a friend. We had a very tight programme and needed to work quickly to catch up with lost time. L&L really helped us out and took so much stress away from us! You should offer your counselling services on your website!!

We were recomended Locksley & Locksley Architects through friends of ours and they have been really helpful. They explained everything in detail (even the silly questions) and really cared about what we wanted and our budget/timescale. I would highly recommend them.

If you measure from the top of the floor joist to the underside of the ridge beam, you must have at least 2.3m
The floor joists are the long wooden strips that the floor boards sit on. The ridge beam is the ling thin piece of wood that runs at the very top of the loft

The initial visit is free with no obligation to proceed. It is designed to be a personal interactive experience to establish your requirements and the various opportunities your project presents. We will discuss how you want to use your home, your tastes, and your budget. We may sketch up some proposals and discuss ideas so that we can establish all of your requirements.
After the initial visit there are still a variety of decisions to be made and drawings to be produced to demonstrate what the intentions for your project are. We work with you to establish your exact requirements, so that we can design the perfect space within your budget. We will then produce a measured survey, develop plans and elevations and amend them as many times as necessary until you are satisfied with the design. We also offer separate interior design & garden design services.

Most building work requires some sort of permission to be granted before it can go ahead. Depending on the extent of the work you wish to carry out, the location and type of your property you may be required to apply for several types of permissions, such as: permitted development, planning permission, landlords consent, conservation area consent, listed building consent, party wall consent, building regulations approval etc.

In order to get your project up and running you will need to get prices from some trusted builders. We will produce detailed drawings and a specification which breaks down each element of work to be carried out and allows contractors to accurately price the job against other contractors. We will then sit down together and decide which contractor is best to proceed with.

We will monitor and manage all aspects of the construction process and look after everything on your behalf. We will ensure that the contractor builds your project in accordance with the correct documents and that you get all the necessary certificates upon completion.

Every project is different and every problem brings a unique challenge
