Absolute Architecture & English Cross
Architects and Building Designers in Southampton, Hampshire, UK
"Absolute Architecture was a joy to work with. Kate Cooper and her team worked with a tiny, decrepit home, large garden and stables from 1908 and turned the property into a show piece. They were sympathetic to the original design and area while making the home user friendly and comfortable for contemporary residents. They were knowledgeable about the many local laws and guidelines and used the best local craftsmen for the renovation and addition, all in a timely, warm manner. We are so proud of our lovely home; it came out truly beautiful. Thank you Kate!"

OB Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in Southampton, Hampshire, UK
"I have instructed OB Architecture on three major projects and can thoroughly recommend them for their design skills and client interface. One was a luxury 5,000 sf house in Henley on Thames whose design has exceed all expectations. The second a block of 9 apartments and ground floor commercial in London SE1 and the third a 9 acre site in West Berkshire upon which I hope to secure permission for a country house. The latter is ongoing The house and London project were completed satisfactorily in no small measure to Olly Bray and colleagues' skill and dedication. The practice which is young, brings a fresh and new outlook. All great stuff"

fiftypointeight Architecture + Interiors
Architects and Building Designers in Southampton, Hampshire, UK
"Angus helped us develop plans to convert our attic in our 1930's house into two additional bedrooms and a bathroom, in addition to redesigning the first floor layout. Through thoughtful design and a good understanding of our requirements he developed a number of options for us. Through close communication and a practical design application the end result is a 1930's house with fresh and modern feel to the first and second floors. I would thoroughly recommend Angus & Fiftypointeight Architecture and indeed hope to be able to use him again soon, when we tackle to the kitchen..."

Concept 8 Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Southampton, Hampshire, UK
"I hired Concept8 for a complete renovation project of a 4,000sqf family home over 12 months in 2013-14. The Concept8 team was responsible for architectural design, organizing tenders, sourcing contractors & materials, monitoring the entire process onsite & dealing with all contractors from start to hand-over (and beyond). I found in Concept8 a team of dedicated professionals, able to listen to our needs, highly knowledgeable in their domain, well-connected with a large network of professionals in the construction business, without which my own personal project would not have been a success."

- Dan Houghton
The Cave Cooperative Ltd
Architects and Building Designers in Southampton, Hampshire, UK
"The Cave Cooperative were the architects that designed my newbuild residential annex project in Oxfordshire through the planning process to detailed design. They provided excellent advice on using more natural building materials and came up with innovotive solutions to bridge existing drainage. They were very good through the planning process by helping me get the most out of the 40% volume restrictions in the greenbelt. They are very user friendly and always respond to any queries swifly and with diligence. Paul Harvey at Cave Cooperative has provided an excellent service and I would highly recommend this company particulalrly if you are interested in natural building materials and energy efficient building."

How do I find the best Southampton architect for my home design project?

It is best to hire a home architect who will be involved in all phases of the design process, from the initial concept to the completed construction. The architect is often the first person you will hire for your project. If necessary, they might also help you select and hire Hampshire subcontractors, which can include the builders, engineers and landscaper. Interior architects are also involved in negotiating contracts for all involved participants. It is for these reasons that it is extremely important for you to have a good relationship with the Southampton residential architect you hire. He or she can be the tie-breaking vote between you and the general contractor and can be your biggest advocate during the construction process. Different architecture firms in Southampton, Hampshire, UK provide different services, so the scope of the work can span from pre-design environmental impact studies to selecting furniture and finishes, depending on what your specific needs are.

What sort of process can I expect from a residential architect?

As far as the process goes, the architecture firm or individual that you choose will start with concept drawings and finish with construction drawings and documents. Some firms even design with 3D renderings and videos, but that should not be assumed. There should be plenty of meetings between you and your building designer until you have agreed upon a design that you are completely happy with. Always keep in mind that the designer will have building codes to follow, and likely pre-existing design limitations when dealing with a remodel, so while they might not be able to execute your exact ideas they always have your safety and aesthetics in mind. One of the most important duties of a residential architect is to serve as managers and supervise most aspects of construction, as well as facilitate communication between all other contractors, so you can expect them to be present throughout the entire building process to ensure everything is executed as planned.

It is very important to hire the right professional for the job. Remember that the most well-known or established designer might not provide the best architectural services for your needs. It all comes down to the individual project. Research and ask people whose work you like for recommendations. It's important to have somewhat of an idea of the style of house architecture that you prefer, as well as the amount you would like to spend. Residential architects in Southampton, Hampshire, UK are natural problem solvers. They will assess the entire situation and help you to solve your problems too. Don't settle for a single company too early. Call and interview a few. Make sure that you feel like your personalities will mesh well and that you like their professional perspective.

Questions to ask prospective Southampton interior architects:

  • What is your fee structure?
  • What does the cost include?
  • Do you have professional liability insurance?
  • Can you handle my special requests (ADA, LEED etc.)?
  • What types of renderings (3D, video, illustrative) will you produce?
  • What is your experience with similar projects?
  • When do you expect to start and be finished with the project?
  • What do your services include? (It's best that the services are until construction is completed.)
  • What happens when the cost exceeds the budget?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • Would you say your work has a defining style? (This is important in case the architect's personal style will interfere with your vision.)
  • Will you help with hiring a general contractor and subcontractors?
  • What do you estimate the cost will be?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any complications you foresee with this project?
