Ben Craven Architect Designed House Extension in Preston

Our Architect Services

Our Services & Architectural Process

Our projects range from contemporary house extensions, to unique eco homes, rural barn conversions and adaptations.

Residential architecture is at the core of what we as an architects studio do. We have worked for several years on residential dwellings, working closely with clients to help them achieve their dream home.

We work both with existing buildings, whether you are looking to improve your existing property, or we can start from the very beginning to create a home from scratch.

Our focused approach to design is founded on you, before we do anything, we listen.

Our greatest skill lies in helping our clients explore their design needs and visualising their desires for each project. Identifying every small but important detail is key to the success of our projects.


We use this information to provide imaginative, creative and stylish design solutions that bring our clients’ architectural needs and aspirations to life.


Every client and site are unique, our aim as your architect is to deliver your dream, creating bespoke designs that are simple, engaging, beautiful and surpass your expectations.

Architect Consultation

Whether you have a clear idea or need some guidance to help shape your plans, our consultation will help you to understand viability, possibilities, limitations and costs.

Initial design

Taking everything we learned and shared during our consultations we create initial proposed designs for you to review & a meeting to discuss your thoughts and answer any design queries.

Planning permission

​Further refinement of your preferred option takes place, with the submission for Planning Approval or Lawful Development Certificate if the design falls within Permitted Development to your local council on your behalf.

Building regulations

Our architect services can also include supporting you through the building regulations application process and liaising with your approved building inspector.

Detailed architect plans

This is the stage of the architectural process where we draw up fully detailed drawings and plans, clarify the build remit and contact builders for construction quotes.


This is the most exciting stage of your architectural journey – where your new build, extension or renovation project comes to life. We can take the hassle out of the construction phase and manage the process on your behalf. Working alongside the contractor and specialists helps keep the project on programme and budget.

Residential and commercial architect services

Whatever your style, whatever your future plans, and whatever your budget, we’ll do our absolute best to deliver a final result that you’ll love for many years. 

Whether it is an extension, a remodelling project or a dream home, no matter what your brief or requirements are, we can offer a design solution and ensure you project runs smoothly from concept to construction.

If you’re looking for a architect for your project then we’d love to hear from you.
