We are a collective of architects based in London collaborating to deliver architecture projects on all levels.
Together, we share ideas and creativity, and get things done the way you request us.
Normally, when we think of the architectural process, most people often think of architects sitting at their desks, designing and creating the buildings they have in their minds and then turn them into reality.
But if we look deeper, it is actually the tenant or the homeowner who will live in the place and will relate and interact with it the spaces the architect designs.
The strategy of Archcore Architects is not just designing spaces that look complete, perfect and beautiful but also to design and create them in ways that take into account the importance and needs of the people that inhabit them. The dweller is crucially important throughout the whole process, from start to finish, when designing and creating a home that will meet their needs, and not change their already perfect and unique lifestyle and identity.
Most people are more interested in bigger and more complex projects, but the way we see it in our practice is that the little projects that constantly happen around us are those that most significantly from our way of life and therefore the most challenging ones.
The architects at our office emphasise the importance of these projects. We are focused on putting happiness into every project that we work on because we know that it is not just a house, but a way of life of those who live in it.
Firstly, our architect will come to meet you and talk about your projects, kitchen extension, side extension or loft conversion. This can be an opportunity to discuss some about the project and what you have in mind. For this discussion the architect will guide you through all the design stages, up until we hand your project over to a contractor. As you are discussing your design ideas with the architect, one of our surveyors will measure your property and for our architect to prepare all necessary plans and documentation to obtain all permissions necessary to turn the project in reality.
With the measure survey and your idea design, your architect will produce a set of planning application for submission to your local authority. This will always include: existing drawings; proposed drawings; planning forms and a block plan. We will ensure you receive planning approval.
Following the submission of the planning application, we will do Building regulations drawings. We have a technical team, that will collaborate with your architect to produce a set of building regulations drawings for submission to the council.
