Custom Build Homes Architects
Custom Build Homes Architects
Creating a unique home that fits the owner’s exacting needs is becoming a popular solution for buyers, especially following the announcement of the government’s Help to Build scheme.
The responsibilities involved with self build projects can be daunting for some people. Instead, custom build home design gives clients the chance to put their own stamp on a plot, within the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF), and with the guidance of skilled builders.
We work closely on custom build projects with developers in the East Midlands to help them realise their client’s dreams. Alongside exceptional design, we bring experience in everything from masterplanning to planning applications, for various residential and commercial developments. We love approaching new challenges and overcoming them with the best possible solution.
Choosing an architect partner for custom builds
We like to consult your client from the very early stages to get the best result. After choosing a plot, we’re on hand to deliver a bespoke design for their new home, which takes into account practical considerations as well as their aesthetic preferences.
There are no limits to plot size, or buyer requirements, that we can work with. Over our years of experience, we’ve played a crucial role in everything from a major barn redevelopment, to the complete design and build of contemporary urban homes.
Our team can advise on rooms, layout and style for a wide range of building projects, as well as practical matters such as the planning process – always keeping the buyer, and the long-term future of the property, in mind.
Chartered architects you can trust
Swain Architecture is a Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Chartered Practice. This means we will never overlook the importance of building regulations, health and safety practices and the highest level of compliance, helping to safeguard the reputation of every developer we work with.
Extending the life cycle of housing is important to us. As well as ensuring clients fall in love with their custom build home immediately, we help them to understand the reasons for building with long-term value in mind, so your development remains sustainable once they have sold it.
Our architects and technologists combine creativity with strong commercial thinking. We can also work with you to identify sites that people are most likely to buy, as they lay the foundations for the property they have always wanted to own.
Buyer-focussed custom build projects
Buying a home is an important decision; building your own is one of the most personal investments anyone can make. We keep the buyer’s needs in clear focus at every stage, so you can ensure client satisfaction and fantastic commercial value from the very start.
Our experience makes us perfectly placed to create architecturally interesting homes that can achieve planning permission in complex sites, while maintaining a competitive edge on the market.
