Architects in Nottingham
Nottingham is a city rich in historic architecture. We believe transforming historic buildings to be used to their full potential in the 21st century takes skill.
If you’re looking for an architect in Nottinghamshire, our creative and technically skilled team can help you get started on your project. We design everything from sympathetic extensions, remodels and renovations, to complete residential developments and commercial builds.
Taking Inspiration from Local Architecture
The nature of Nottingham architecture highlights the importance of designing a building that fits in. From the gothic splendour of Watson Fothergill’s buildings and the history of The Galleries of Justice, to the industrial beauty of the Nottingham Contemporary art gallery, the city and its surrounding county have an impressive array of varied architectural styles.
As a conservation and heritage specialist, we don’t just do white boxes. We design modern living and working spaces that enhance period features and work for home owners, visitors, staff and clients.
A Sense of Place
Whether you’re looking for an architect in West Bridgford, The Park Estate or the Vale of Belvoir, we can help you transform a dark Victorian terrace into a bright modern family home, bringing much-needed space and adding balconies and mezzanines for a dramatic finish.
Architects in West Bridgford
In our studio, you’ll find planning experts who will listen to your ideas and draw up a design that you can confidently submit as a strong application, with the right specifications for approval. Founding director Elizabeth Rhodes is a leader in the field, and sits on the committee for the RIBA Housing and Planning group.
Elizabeth has completed numerous projects in the city, such as the sympathetic restoration of a Regency building in the Lace Market, transformed into offices over three storeys for digital agency Tank.
Track Record in West Bridgford
Our projects on historic homes include Florence Road and Ella Road in West Bridgford, both of which involved extensions and renovations that combined contemporary design with existing period buildings.
We are a Chartered Practice of the Royal Institute of British Architecture (RIBA) and follow their key stages in order to adhere to the highest standards and protect our clients. These stages typically fall into three phases, pre-planning design, technical design and on-site. Planning applications and work starting on-site are major milestones on the road to you getting your new set of keys.
