Specially designed for both small and large scale extensions and internal alterations to domestic properties. The appointments last either 4 or 7 hours, during this time we will analyse your design brief, including your budget, and possible planning restrictions and then interpret this into a bespoke design solution. As the appointment progresses we work up sketches that we will fully discuss with you and therefore enable you to have direct input into the initial design. The sketches are then refined and presented to you.
This bespoke process delivers a carefully considered sketch design that you can then use to start initial conversations with builders or other relevant interest parties and progress to the next design phase with confidence.
Considering moving to a new Home ?
If you are considering moving house that may require an extension or improvement, we can carryout the sketch scheme analysis prior, during or after exchange of contracts. Where access to the property is limited, the appointment will be carried out either at your current residence or at our offices. If you are not living in this country the entire process can be completed remotely via Skype.
Considering a New Build House?
The sketch scheme analysis is also suitable for new build or replacement dwellings. The only difference being that the sketch scheme process take 2 days (2no. 7 hour appointments), where the first couple of hours are meetings on site to discuss the design brief followed by the design process carried out at our offices.
Difficult planning constraints?
What if your property is located in an area restricted by planning constraints? Green Belt / Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty / Conservation Area / Nation park?
MVL Architects deal with many different local councils and associated national and local planning policies. As such we can advice how to maximise your properties potential utilising appropriate planning applications and permitted development rights. We also work closely with specialist planning consultants on projects that require extra support.
