What our Architectural Designers can do for you?

One of the benefits to being an all-in-one team is that our architectural designers will work around your budget with you, and this information will be shared throughout the design & build team. This means total clarity for you along the way, rather than dealing with third-parties and the risk of getting your wires crossed. We will even advise you on how to avoid making any unnecessary costs.

If you happen to have a picture of some interior design that you may want to emulate, then you can take that straight to our architectural designers and we can replicate this as much as possible, parameters permitting. Our architectural designers know where to source every type of material and have access to all the specialist suppliers around.

At APT Renovation, our architectural designers do not miss a thing, every little detail is of paramount importance. We take pride in designing and building your dream home, and we leave no stone unturned. Our architectural designers go the extra mile when designing your home project, with every millimetre accurately covered.

The harmony of a household has a direct correlation to the amount of space a property has, particularly if the family is large. The more spacious a property, the less likely it is that petty feuds will break out of who is using what and what area is being occupied. An extra bathroom can change the whole dynamic of a household and removes the strain of having to delegate time and monitor how long one spends relaxing in the bathtub. Not only that, but an extra bathroom can add up to 6% in value.

The added space that house extensions provide mean that family members are more likely to want to spend time in their actual home rather than treating their property as just a place to rest their head at night. They can be modified into rooms of relaxation and entertainment, fitted with integrated sound systems and technology. With more and more people working remotely, the study is turning out to be a necessity for digital entrepreneurs, allowing individuals to make the most out of their productivity.

Wrap-around Extension

As swathes of new luxury modern apartments sweep the city, there’s also been a newfound penchant to modernising existing properties with similarly designed house extensions. These glass designs represent the new trend in contemporary architecture and can reinvent living spaces by facilitating large amounts of natural light. Not only does this brighten up the place and make it more inviting, but it also gives the illusion of even more space.

Many properties deceptively come across as being small because of the layout, so knocking down an internal wall or two is an incredibly effective way to increase the interior space. Adding 10% new floorspace can fetch 5.1% more value on the market. This can also create a contemporary feel, which is why the majority of modern properties incorporate open-plan layouts, with fresh and airy elements. The two pillars for modernism are space and light, and this is progressively being reflected in the ambitious house extensions that are taking place throughout the capital.

Kitchen Extensions

Kitchen extensions have become the most popular types of home improvements in London properties. A new kitchen can add up to 6% in value to a property and is sometimes the first thing people look for when buying. As people become more infatuated with their culinary habits, the kitchen area is becoming one of the focal social spaces as opposed to the front of the house. This is why open-plan kitchen diners are now high in demand and are often adjoined to the rear end of the house. “Our bespoke joinery specialises in bi-folding and sliding doors, which are a fantastic way to seamlessly connect to the garden area”, says Pepaj.

Rear Extension

A rear extension takes full advantage of the outside space and boosts the indoor capacity by integrating the flooring or materials that can be found in the garden. Shifting the extraneous space from the outside to the inside can result in a significant increase in livable room, thus encouraging household members to congregate more in this part of the property. Having this type of extra space is not only more practical for families, but is befitting of the type of lifestyle that many people crave these days.

James Dickson and his wife Nicky of Lysia Street were unwavering in their desire to remain in their Fulham home. They did, however, want to boost the space in their property, most notably by way of a refurbished kitchen that allowed easy access to the garden area. APT Renovation House and kitchen extension company was able to give the property a full renovation and implement a stunning contemporary kitchen, complete with state of the art skylights to boost the overall natural lighting.

Conservatories and orangeries

Conservatories and orangeries are the most cost-effective of all house extensions and are both similar in the sense that they also merge the exterior with the interior. They are versatile in terms of functionality and can be made into dining rooms, studies, garden rooms, sun rooms and children’s rooms, to name a few. Both options allow residents to enjoy the views a garden has to offer under a relaxing confinement, regardless of what the weather is like.

Generally, single storey extensions will go ahead without hiccups, although in some instances, planning permission may be required. When it comes to multi-storey extensions, there is a whole lot more to consider, including the impact the works will have on neighbors. This type of house extension can be very protracted and can incur the wrath of complaints and opposition from those in the vicinity. The larger the project, the more scrutiny it will come under, as the works can result in less privacy for neighbors, or even deprive them of sunlight. This is why obtaining building control permission is mandatory, and a planning permission is almost a certitude.

Multi-Storey Extensions

Multi-storey extensions represent the most radical of transformations of a property and can make way for extra bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms, perfect for a growing family. Creating a new bedroom of 13 square metres has the potential to raise the value of a terraced property by up to 10%, and two new bedrooms in a semi-detached home is likely to see a 13% increase in the overall worth. Homeowners that already have three bedrooms can add up to 10% in value if they decide to go for a fourth.

Full-Service House Extension Architectural Design

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.

3D Modelling

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 in Planning Portal.

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.

Engineering Plans

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.

The happiness of our customers is of paramount importance to us, which is why pride ourselves in bespoke customer care, and attention to all the fine details.

Structural Planning

We are your local design and build team. Our team has experienced Engineers to ensure projects are designed to safety standards.

After a complete and detailed structural survey of the home is completed, we will confirm all structural designs of reinforcement, concrete and steelwork of your project. APT Renovation will take care of all Party Wall matters from start to finish, and will consult with all neighbouring homes to prevent any type of structural damage to the property.

All of this will take place before confirming the final structural engineering design solution. The Party Wall Act permits owners to carry out specific works, including work to the full thickness of a party wall, whilst at the same time protecting the interests of anyone else who might be affected by that work. The act is designed to avoid or minimise disputes by making sure property owners notify their neighbours in advance of certain proposed works. The act states that in the event of the neighbouring owner disagreeing to the works, and working with local West London i.e Fulham builders, an APT surveyor should determine the time and way in which those works are carried out. A team of experienced Civil and Structural Engineers ensure projects are designed to safety standards, built on time and within budget.
