London Residential & Commercial Architects
Our RIBA chartered architects have extensive experience working in the conversion of basements, as well as constructing modern extensions and additional storeys. We work closely with the local Planning Authorities in London and pride ourselves in obtaining all permissions approved on time.
Our comprehensive approach delivers the finest results that are truly individual, transforming your ideas into breathtaking spaces.
How We work
Typically, we like to arrange an on-site visit to understand your vision, and get a feel of the space we will be transforming. We then go back to the drawing board and provide you with a couple of initial draft ideas, which we are confident will provide you with the inspiration to realise your unique vision.
If this sounds of interest, you can request a free consultation and we will get in touch to discuss your project.

A full measured survey is conducted. It takes between seven to ten working days to produce the CAD Drawings showing the existing structure and layout.
Our design team will then work with you to create that unique design you are looking for ensuring that we work to your budget. This process normally involves two or three face-to-face meetings and takes between four and five weeks.
Once your design is finalised, we are happy that it won’t conflict with structural requirements and it fits within the council’s guidelines, we prepare and submit your application for planning permission or permitted development. We then act on your behalf for the eight week process responding to any enquiries and making sure that the application stays on track.
This is something due to its requirement of impartiality that we cannot offer in-house; but we can recommend good surveyors we have worked with in the past and can assist you with any information they require. This process can take up to eight weeks and is one of the most common cause of delays on a site.
This involves one of our pricing team to visit your property, talking through your design so that they get a full understanding of what you want to achieve and then generating a detailed quotation. This is a very detailed element of work and can take up to ten days to complete.
At this stage the design and plan is complete. We will then take it upon ourselves to refer you to a trusted builder that has built up a strong relationship with Architect7.
