Working with an architect that sees your self build or renovation project through from beginning to end can pay dividends. Find out more about one such service...

Some people have clear ideas of what they want from their ideal home, others are happy to take inspiration from experts. The very best architects know how to work with both camps to turn fantasy into reality, alongside problem solving at every step of your home build project. 

Clients at the core

Fundamental to creating a perfect home is to put the customer at the centre of the story. While aesthetics are crucially important when designing a new-build home, what’s even more vital is considering how the owners are going to live in the house. What do they need? How will they move about? What’s important to them? Architecture that doesn’t consider these things isn’t people-centric.

Happily, Tye Architects, one of Grand Designs magazine’s longest-standing partner architect practices know exactly how to bake the needs of the client into the house plans from the very beginning.

Rather than having to juggle numerous sub-contractors and specialists yourself, Tye Architects offer an all-inclusive, world class design and service. They’ll see your project through from beginning to end, helping customers through all the key considerations and potential stumbling blocks in the process.

They’ll ensure they maximise the plot, consider issues such as conservation areas and the local environment, and can ensure you have a home that’s sympathetic to its surroundings while embracing cutting-edge design and features.
