Concept Design Drawings
If you are looking for a full house renovation or home improvements with APT, then our architectural designers will arrange a free no-obligation site visit at your property in West or South West of London. A site visit is essential for our architectural designers to get a better understanding of home designs and house plans of your property. Once we have this information from you, our design team will then create that unique basic design you are looking for.
After the basic home design drawings are finalised, our architectural designers will convert them into 3D architectural models. This will help you get a rough idea on how to make the most of the available space. From the 3D modelling, you will be able to visualise the interior theme and get the chance to see how your new bespoke furniture will look.
3D Virtual Walkthroughs
Our architectural designers will create a 3D virtual walkthrough of how your home will look when all the works are completed. It will give you a truly amazing experience. You will be able to virtually explore your new home designs and plans to see it from every possible angle. There is the chance to see how external and internal lighting will affect the rest of the interior design.
3D Photo Realistic Renders
It is also possible for our architectural designers to create a realistic 3D photo renders and house plans for your new home in London. The most amazing thing is that even though this is created before the works have begun, the render will display every aspect of the plan in full depth, including lighting, textures and materials.
2D Planning Drawings
For most construction projects, planning permission is mandatory in order for the project to go ahead. To be accepted, your application has to include 2D drawings, which details (or describes) aerial surveys, site plans, house plans, floor and roof plans. Any planned elevations to the side, front or rear have to be charted in these drawings. Our architectural designers will make sure that every aspect required is submitted in the application.
3D Floor Plans
Our architectural designers can also suggest 3D floor plans in order for you to see the full floor planning layout. Not only you will see the colour schemes and textures, you will get a good visual idea of where you can place the furniture and maximise the space with further additions. With 3D floor plans, you will have more clarity when it comes to decision making.

Planning Applications and Consents
At APT Renovation, we can handle all the boring paperwork. Part of our service is to handle the communications with your local authority in London, saving you a lot of time.
As we are familiar with the regulations and abide by them, making it very rare for any of the planning applications to be refused.
Home Space Planning
Home space design is very important when it comes to architectural design. The concept drawings help us map out the interior and figure out the best location for features, such as drainage systems, radiators, switches.
The concept drawings are used when planning bathrooms, kitchen layouts or any joinery work.
Building Regulation Plans
We will handle the building regulation submissions on your behalf. Building regulations set the minimum standards for construction, this ensures the health and safety of people in or around buildings. Our project manager will make sure your work complies with the building regulations.
Our architectural designers use 2D drawings for structural and engineering plans. They include calculations in their CAD annotations to assist our builders during the work and help you make final amendments.
Finishes, Fittings and Construction Drawings
The right fittings and finishes will make a difference to how your home looks and feels. We can create mood boards which include different textures, fixtures and materials. It will definitely help you make the right decision.
When you have approved all the final touches, our architectural designers will transfer their CAD designs to the builders.

Aside from being able to assist you with initial design ideas and planning, our architectural designers will make sure that our build team have everything they need to make your dream home come true.
Architectural Service – Process
Before undergoing any work, we carry out a property site assessment to find out the history and context of your building, in order for us to comply with your local authority. We always take into consideration the surrounding areas of your property, particularly if there are any heritage sites or conservation areas nearby. Respecting the nature and heritage of an area is a massive part of what we do, and our architectural designers always take these factors into account when designing your home.
As the rules and regulations for planning permission and building regulation vary in each council, we ensure that we are up to date with each one, and are always updated when there are new rules introduced. We also take the time to analyse the reasons why properties get approved and denied in the area, as this allows us to maintain our excellent approval rate.
