I had a good experience dealing with A1 architecture. Always was very professional and friendly. I had no idea where to start with the council but they did everything for me.

SAP building contractors used these for plans for a dormer loft conversion. The plans was very detailed and easy to read. Will definitely use again.

We have used a1 architecture for the design of our house extension and was really happy with the service that we received.


At A1 Architecture the entire team love to talk to our clients about their ideas and progress this into the design. By far the best part of the job is seeing delighted customers with their project completed, knowing we were part of the process is extremely rewarding.

With the ambition to provide clients with a top quality service at a reasonable price. This combination seemed to be missing from the market and was the driving force to start A1 Architecture.

For most people their home is their most prized possession. Therefore whether you are building a new one or extending your current home, you want a team of people who are going to have that most prized possession in their best interest and the passion to design something for you and your way of life.

Absolutely. We can provide an excellent remote service to our clients. With the exception of the measured site survey, the full design process can be done remotely.

With the exception of the measure site survey our design process is completely remote. When we conduct the survey our staff, if asked will wear masks and are happy if you wish to vacate the property for the short time the survey takes.


At A1 Architecture we know the idea of building an extension to your home or even a new home, can be very At we know the idea of building an extension to your home or even a new home, can be very exciting but extremely daunting at the same time. However, we are here to guide you through each stage of the process. As a design led architectural practice our aim is to remove all the stress out of the process by providing a fully managed, professional service to make your dream home become a reality.

A1 Architecture we can produce realistic 3d Visuals of your project to help you visualize what your project will look like.

Having a basement or a loft conversion is becoming more increasingly popular, especially with new permitted development guide lines allowing a rear dormer loft conversion to be built without requiring a planning application.
Adding a Loft Conversion to your home can be a great way to turn that unused loft space, into a warm welcoming extra bedroom with an en-suite and can add anything from 10% to 20% value to your home.

You may love current home but just feel like you need the extra space but don’t want the hassle of moving.
A house extension may be the right option for you, it will create you the extra space that your family needs. At A1 Architecture, we provide creative architectural design solutions to make your new house extension fit in and around your way of living.
A single storey house extension can be a great option for a new kitchen or if your vision is to create a large open plan kitchen living area. If you choose a two-storey extension you could add a new living area to the ground floor and an extra bedroom, study or bathroom to the 1st floor.
Adding an house extension with a large kitchen / family room can add anything from 10% to 15% value to your home.
Adding a two-storey house extension with an extra bedroom can add around 15% to %25 value to your home.

At A1 Architecture we understand how much of an inconvenience it can be when your project requires a load-bearing wall removal and you need to have an independent structural engineer involved in the design process.
That is why we offer an in house structural beam/column calculation Package.
Structural beam and column calculations are usually completed with a 2 day turnaround. With our structural calculations package, we provide technical detail drawings along with the necessary calculation document required by building control.
Our fee’s for a structural calculations package for a load-bearing wall removal are £250.00. If you require more than one beam/ load bearing wall removal we charge £100 per extra beam calculation.

Another way A1 Architecture can help you with your project is by offering tender support and guidance throughout the tender process. Tender support would depend on the level of involvement you want from your builders and the complexity of your project. This process would involve arranging a meeting with yourself to go through the detailed construction drawings and build specification to produce a full schedule of works. Here we would outline exactly what the contractor is to quote for, i.e. Kitchen supply and fitting, decorating and flooring ect. At this point you may wish to choose the exact kitchen or bathroom suite you would like to be incorporated into your quotation. We have trade accounts with most kitchen and bathroom manufacturers such as Howdens Kitchens and Bathstore, you are more than welcome to use our trade accounts to get the trade prices on your new kitchen or bathroom.
Once you have chosen all the fine details and finishes we will put all the information together to form a full accurate tender document. With this tender document, you can be sure that all the quotes you receive are all for the same project specification.
Now that we have the full tender documentation we will issue the tender document out to a number of reputable local builders and contractors.
Once we receive all the quotations, we will arrange a meeting to go through the proposals and help you identify the right builder for your project, taking into consideration timescales, build costs ect.
