Sometimes, improving your home's functionality doesn't require adding more space but reconfiguring the existing layout. Our designers are experts at creating residential planning drawings that reimagine your home's layout to better suit your lifestyle. Whether it's creating an open-plan living area, redesigning a kitchen, or improving the flow between rooms, we provide solutions that make your home more enjoyable and practical. Our reconfiguration services help you achieve a home that perfectly fits your needs and preferences.

Adding an annexe or garden room is a fantastic way to create additional living space for a growing family. Whether it's a home gym, a dedicated office space, or a guest suite, our extension plans cater to your unique needs. Our residential architectural design services ensure that these additions blend seamlessly with your existing home, enhancing both its functionality and aesthetics. We provide detailed planning drawings for home extensions and annexes, ensuring your new space is designed to the highest standards.
