Stephen – Residential architect in Manchester – Trafford M33

‘For most of us, a house is the single biggest and most valuable investment we will make in our lifetime. The value of that property is measured by either its resale potential or ability to generate income. In achieving this potential it is crucial in making the right decisions early on.

I aim to present creative solutions and realistic options which take into account your vision for your home and the brief that I will develop alongside you. This may include minor alterations and refurbishments to the existing fabric of your home or a brand new extension.

With every creative solution we develop together this should make the best of available space, light and views and provide an appropriate external visual form to your home. As well as meeting practical requirements the new space ought to be a continuing source of delight to you and your family.’

Cormac – Residential architect in Manchester – M4

(click on their name above to view their full profile and shortlist them for your project)

‘I am a passionate designer with a keen eye for details that make the whole project stand out. I have good experience in refurbishment, listed building and new build projects across the country. Whilst I am very competent in working on new builds on a greenfield site or spare patch of garden, I would say I particularly enjoy working with existing buildings.

I love solving the problems of reusing and reconfiguring an existing design by altering, adding and upgrading. A retrofit first approach is all the more important now as a more sustainable form of construction in order to achieve a net zero target by 2050.’

‘I’ve recently set up my own practice after a number of years working at well known and award-winning practices in the UK – the last three years of which I was lead architect, delivering high end residential projects in Manchester.

Good design can truly change the way you live. I focus on designing unique spaces with distinct quality and character, carefully responding to your brief – refining it to create bespoke spaces for better living, tailored to your needs and budget.

We begin with your brief and tailor the design around your lifestyle and how you want to use the space. We’ll test layouts and consider the use of natural light, high quality, well-crafted materials, and views into and through the scheme. These are based on your needs and design aspirations and unique to your project.

I’m passionate about working closely with clients to help them get their dream home!’
