Based in Totnes, Devon, AK. Architects are Devon architects who undertake a wide range of services within the south west region and beyond. We cover a full scope of architects services in Devon, Cornwall and Somerset.
We also undertake projects in London and nationwide.
We are most recognised for high quality, innovative and sustainable design and delivery in the Community Housing and Private Housing sectors, however, our experience spreads much wider across the following sectors:
- Community Housing
- Private Houses
- Small Projects – Extensions and Energy Efficient refurbishment
Our services exceed the full range of architects services expected of an RIBA Chartered Practice, to deliver a project from start to finish, to include energy consultation, Passivhaus Design consultation and community housing expertise, all forming part of our standard service. This can be broken down as follows:
- Feasibility Studies
- Concept Design
- Passivhaus Design / Energy Consultation
- Developed Design
- Planning Applications
- Technical Design
- Building Regulations
- Construction drawings
- Construction Management
As certified Passivhaus / passive house designers and members of the AECB (Association for Environment Conscious Building), we have successfully completed and certified passivhaus projects in our portfolio. Whilst we encourage our clients to reach and demonstrate these exemplar standards through certification, we can also work with strong environmental principles to deliver low energy, thermally comfortable buildings with relative ease, should certification not be an ambition.
Good, committed environmental design is ‘what we do’, and therefore does not come at any extra cost to our clients. We are also highly experienced at delivering these building standards on site, and consider we bring good value to our clients for strong environmental design, with our practical building methods, site / contract management experience and airtightness design. We also provide confident construction guidance and can bring an established supply chain of excellent contractors and specialists who deliver our buildings to such high standards.
Therefore, our expertise comfortably reaches beyond most architect’s offices with the following additional services:
- Project Management
- Passivhaus / passive house design and consultancy
- Community ownership / Community led housing consultancy.
