Design and build your perfect home extension

Unlike other house extension architects, we collaborate closely with you to develop your desired home extension design. We will assemble all the elements, such as materials, finishes, fixtures and fittings, as well as kitchen, living room, bedroom or bathroom design as required.

Whether you would like a complementary addition to your existing layout, or would like to make a statement with a bold juxtaposition, we will help you design and build a home extension that’s bright, spacious and beautifully functional.

Take control of the construction of your home extension

Once we have secured planning permission for your extension, we progress to the Technical Design + Building Regulations stage, followed by the Contract Administration + Construction​ Inspection stage, where your concept will be transformed into concrete reality.

Based on our extensive experience working with builders for house extensions, we’ve developed proven steps and a hands-on construction inspection approach to help you avoid possible complications that may arise on site and monitor your home extension costs. Working collaboratively, we’ll plan and build your extension with minimal stress and complete your project on time and on budget.

House Extension Architects

However you want to update your home, Urbanist Architecture is here to guide you through building an extension. Our house extension services cover everything from front and rear extensions, single or double-storey, to any combination of ways of extending a residential building.

Whether you want to add an extra bedroom to accommodate a growing family, add an office or dining room, extend your kitchen, or add an en-suite or kitchenette to a rental property, together we will turn your home extension ideas into a workable design that will take full advantage of what your house has to offer, providing you with practical and functional space planning and remodelling with maximum square footage.

Our RIBA-chartered architects, planning consultants and experienced interior designers will work tirelessly to create your vision. If you’re looking for house inspiration, we’re always coming up with great house extension ideas. But if you have a clear concept of what you want, we’ll work closely with you to bring it to reality.

There are clients who come to us with the notion that they are simply going to get planning drawings for an extension. That’s never the case. Yes, of course, you’ll get the drawings, but you’ll also get our time and attention and creative input. Any architect who is honest with you will tell you that getting planning permission for a house extension needs more than PDFs of floor plans and elevations.

With us, you’ll get our deep planning expertise: when we submit an application for house extension, it always has a carefully argued and fully illustrated Design and Access Statement. And if you are extending under permitted development, we’ll make sure you make the most of your rights without stepping beyond them. If you want us to do the Building Regulations drawings for your home extension, we’ll work with a structural engineer to make sure that the design does more than tick the boxes and will be truly safe, sustainable and accessible.

When you choose an architect for your extension, you should be looking for someone who treats the project every bit as seriously as if they were designing a new six-bedroom house on a prime location. Whether your property is listed or not, we will analyse the building extensively, and deliver a house extension design that will complement it stylistically – whether you want a sympathetic addition or are aiming to make a statement by building a juxtaposing yet intelligent expansion.

We enjoy all types of building materials, from timber and steel frame construction to traditional brickwork to cutting-edge technologies, and will employ only the materials suitable within your budget and based strictly on your brief.

Are we happy to be described as “house extension architects”? Absolutely.

An architect’s job is to create places where people will be happy to live, work and pass the time, and for many people in London and beyond, their best chance of improving the place they or their tenants live is by adding space in the form of an extension. There are extensions that are unquestionably some of our best work. So we would be honoured to help to design yours.

One-team Integrated Approach

We are a multidisciplinaryteam of architects, planning consultants, interior designers and project managers offering multiple services under one roof. When you work with our firm, you have the support of our entire studio behind you - no matter what.
