Promoting good architecture, which is responsive to the technical, aesthetic and budgetary expectations of our clients

Design Studio Architects is a RIBA Chartered architectural practice and one of Leicester’s most forward thinking and commercially aware Architectural teams, specialising in both residential and commercial planning & design.

Our background is in gaining planning permissions and building control consents for homeowners, property developers, land owners and self builders.

If you’re looking for a residential architect to either extend your property or build a new house and are unsure where to start – why not contact us for FREE planning and design advice.

Small house extensions and alterations may sometimes fall within ‘Permitted Development Rights’, which allows certain work to take place without the need for planning permission. There are a number criteria which need to be met, with some of the key points highlighted in our mini guide.

We provide high quality residential architecture, providing clients with schemes which meet aesthetic needs as well as being buildable. Our residential architects have years of experience in both modern and traditional design, enabling us to create inspiring and functional spaces.

We are forward thinking commercial architects, who take care and time to fully understand client requirements, allowing for efficient design processes with tailor made solutions. Our commercial architects demonstrate how to maximise budgets in order to provide schemes which are commercially viable.
