Lacey Architecture


Lacey Architecture is a young, open-minded architectural design company passionate about residential design. Each project is approached by considering your requirements, context and your budget. We listen to our client’s requirements and provide a high level of practical support and advice throughout, particularly for those who haven’t built or extended previously. As well as a quick turnaround and pragmatic approach for those in the construction industry or with more experience.

We combine fresh contemporary thinking with an unusually high level of hands on practical experience. We love buildings that are logical, economical and straightforward to build, while layering details in a considered and practical manner.

We have a passion for practical, achievable sustainability without relying on expensive ‘bolt-ons’. Cohesive design and considering the surroundings allows the building to be responsive and complement the context.

We are able to assist with survey drawings, planning/lawful development packages, Building Regulation and construction drawings for all scales of residential and commercial design.

We can meet to discuss your plans and ideas then provide a free quote for our design services broken down into clear stages.

Please contact us for information or to discuss your project.

Covid 19 / Corona Virus Update


All projects are being undertaken with an option for remote working, with presentations offered virtually or in person (as suits client preference).

This is to allow us to always work within the changing restrictions and offer a smooth, undisrupted service. Client preference is  always a priority with us adapting to suit your needs and ensure your project evolves smoothly.

We are able to visit site, plus all staff are now double vaccinated. However, we are happy to obey social distancing with additional precautions if required.

We are open during our normal business hours and are happy to discuss new projects over the phone/email/web services.

Design, Planning & Construction


We are a small, vibrant company with a number of different skills. From initial discussion, measured survey, design development and planning submission through to detailed Building Control and construction drawings.

We can provide guidance on aspects of the building process; design and drawings, planning and permitted development applications, party wall issues, finding a builder, budget and costings, building regulations etc.

We provide a personal but professional, hands-on approach, considering your brief, budget and site at all stages of work.

 

  • Building stages are simply explained in clear terms.

  • Fixed price quote gives fee cost certainty.

  • Fully Insured with Professional Indemnity Insurance.

  • Evening and weekend meetings available. 

  • Architect & ARB Registered

We provide clear fixed prices for our work broken down into stages, with the work in each stage clearly explained. Unlike many others, we do not work on a percentage of the final build cost. Instead, we provide a quote with fixed fees at the outset to give you fee cost certainty, as well as a highly competitive quote.  We provide a flexible pay-as-you-go service, so you can simply use us for the bits you can’t do or the for the whole project if that suits you better.

We can help with any size home improvement project – kitchen extensions, total house refurbishments, single/double storey extensions, bathroom design, kitchen design, interior design etc.

  • Flexible Pay-As-You-Go Architectural Services.

  • Free no obligation quote.

  • Friendly, honest and approachable –  architecture without stuffiness!

  • All projects considered – get in contact!

Happy New Year!

This is me.
An Architect in Bath & Shrewsbury running my own business.

I love getting to know clients, how they live, what they need and what they dream of.
I love understanding your home, your site, its potential and the limitations and opportunities it represents.

I love working from the initial “getting to know you” meeting, to the design options presentation, to the VR modelling (offered as an optional service in a covid secure manner) all the way through to the nitty-gritty on site. Plus of course, the very best bit, checking in with the clients at the end of the process.

I love the detail, the pragmatics but also the dreaming and the space planning. The opening up of options and potential within a house.

This is me – all clients work directly with me, no out-sourcing your project.  

Just me and hopefully you too if you would like to work together!

Fantastic post from @marptree

Plus a great way to end the year!
Signing off today for the holidays and a break until 4th January.

Wishing everyone a Fantastic and Relaxing Christmas and a very Happy New Year!

Progress at our BOA extension project.

The masonry on this is very intricate, going from the ashlar coins to blockwork (to be rendered) and with these massive window openings the reveals are tiny!

The high DPC and membrane is to accommodate raised planting beds all around the extension.

This has been an interesting job so far and we look forward to carrying on in the new year!

Getting ready for the end of the year here.

Finishing drawings, readying new tender packages and sending briefs to clients for sign off over the holidays.

We still have a few more days to go, but looking forwards to some time off over the Christmas period.

You have seen our gingerbread houses (a Lacey family tradition), what are you looking forward most looking forward to over this holiday break?

Last survey of the year, this beautiful house in Bristol. The clients have stunning Christmas tree up in the bay window with looks fantastic.

Here the aim is to open up the kitchen to the rear dining space, create a well laid out utility room and a bonus study/den which opens out onto the rear garden.

I just love these original garage doors, but uncertain if they are really suitable for the clients needs. What do you think?
Retain then (with new paint and locks) or update with something more modern?
