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 + booster jab. 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!

Last week we presented some new design options for a whole house renovation.

Double storey side extension, creating a master suite, home gym, dream kitchen with separate walk-in pantry and utility room as well as much needed extra bedrooms and bathrooms upstairs.

We are planning changes from the front door all the way back, and maximising the space in the existing house to make every m2 count!

Do you need help planning your home renovation or unsure where to start thinking about an extension?

We have ONE slot still available for this summer, get in contact to setup an initial meeting.

A design presentation package for clients in Bathampton.

I thought I would lay it all out (as you can see no table was large enough!).
This is our STANDARD design presentation.

- A3 hand coloured plans (for all three options)
- A3 tracing paper overlays with full annotations and descriptions.
- Digital images of the front and rear of the house with the proposed extensions for all the options.
- Extensive coloured precedent images so you can get really excited about all the details and be fully involved with the discussion of ideas!

What do you think?
Looks like a lot of design ideas to look through and get excited about!
A great starting point?

Again this is all part of our STANDARD design presentation, no extra fees or additional options, all this included as just part of our process.
We offer full 3D modelling and immersive VR too (covid safe) as optional extras.

Do you want to work with us and realise your dream home design? Get in contact and we can get an initial meeting booked!

Early sketches, ideas and brain storming a new project.

It all starts with rough sketches, by hand, for me with coloured pens working over a plan, elevation and section many times, usually with the colour getting darker as I get more certain of an idea.

Here, I am trying to create several options for a client who is looking to add features to a more modern home.

The kitchen table is to be the heart of the home with the extension evolving around this. Family room/den, home gym & shower, large pantry and utility all align around the central kitchen area.

Don't worry none of these rough sketches form part of the presentation to clients. Instead next is a period of pause to allow a fresh view to be taken, then re-thinking and reworking the ideas. After that selection and refinement and finally time to start drawing up the options and ideas for presentation to clients.

Does that sound like a lot of work? Yes, but it's the really exciting bit of the project, working out what is possible and "solving" the brief!
