Design for Life – A new year ahead and a time for change
Over the past couple of years, we have spent an unprecedented amount of extra time at home. For some the familiarity of home wasn’t unusual but for others whose busy lives meant that their home was used for the bare minimum, perhaps just as a place to rest their head at the end of a long day, it gave them the opportunity to re-discover the house and make it a home. However, it was also a time to revaluate the requirements of the space for the needs of the family.
All too often we outgrow our homes, whether it’s because of lack of space due to an expanding family or that we have just fallen out of love with the house that excited us before but, it’s not always a reason to move. If the footprint of the house and the land allows it, with vision, imagination and a good architect you could find your happy place, in the same house, once again.
Whether it’s an extension or remodelling of you home, by removing existing walls to create a brighter, bigger space or a loft conversion to transform the unused space to a practical room all options have potential to bring the wow factor to your home. Garage conversions or the creation of an outbuilding/annex, if the space allows, can give you endless possibilities, eg an office space, games room, gym, art studio, indoor swimming pool.
With over fifteen years’ experience of beautifully crafted architecture Avenue Architecture can turn your ideas into reality. They can guide you through every step of the process, including dealing with planning and building regulation applications. Experienced in both residential and commercial sectors, no job is too small or too big whether it’s a small-scale residential makeover or a multi-million-pound commercial scheme each project is given the care and attention that the unique project of transforming a home deserves. You can expect competitive prices, a dedicated one-to-one service with a free initial consultation.
The process begins with the concept – the opportunity for you to discuss your ideas for your property and a quotation is drafted. On acceptance of the quote a more thorough discuss will take place and a full measured survey of your property will be undertaken.
The design process follows, where detailed plans are drawn up and working together with the client, Avenue Architecture will adapt the drawings until the perfect solution is achieved. From there, you’ll be in safe hands when it comes to the planning application process, as this will be dealt with on your behalf, including site meetings and liaising with planning officers.
Building Regulation compliant plans, a construction package and detailed drawings for builders and contractors to follow, are all part of the comprehensive package that can be included.
So, what are you waiting for? Show you home some love and give it the attention it needs, the payback will astound you.
