We are BRICK Architects
BRICK Architects is a small practice specialising in residential architecture, based in London working nationally.
Whether you have a blank canvas or already have a scheme in mind, we can provide a complete service, from feasibility sketches, planning submissions, building conrtol, tenders, onsite management through to completion.
Creation & Renovation
We have completed projects that span from new build designs, to home renovations and refurbishments including extensions and basements across London and the UK. We have completed many conservation and heritage building projects, successfully and harmoniously integrating new architectural technologies and features, into the original fabric of the building.
We believe that good design should be responsible. We experiment with recycled and responsibly source materials and encourage sustainable practise where possible. We actively look to reduce the environmental impact
of the architectural and building industry with the way we conduct our practise.
Our architectural team develop innovative ideas and site-specific design solutions, bringing together creative vision and technical skills from concept
Progressing a Project with us
From the very early stages of a project, we will run feasibility studies to consider construction, budget, heritage and conservation - and where needed liaising with the local planning authority to address any complexities in the proposal. We look at outlining the design as well as planning intentions and address any essential commercial decisions regarding multiple occupancy and mixed use projects. We always look to meet the required long term occupancy needs and ensure any project is attractive to the market.
We combine strategic thinking with creativity to provide considered design solutions, using a mix of hand drawn sketches, CAD software and computer generated 3D visualisations to ensure our clients fully understand the development of their project.
In the case of Heritage or conservation projects, we work alongside Historic England and local authority conservation officers to ensure all the challenges that arise when looking to successfully integrate contemporary schemes within period design are addressed.
We have extensive in house knowledge of current planning policy and building regulations. Our multi disciplinary approach allows us to work with clients on projects of any size or scale. We have strong working relationships with various Local Authorities in order to provide clients with a good level of communication throughout the consideration process of an application. Where appropriate we will also consult with Historic England and the local conservation teams.
Commonly, we provide the below various planning types, but a bespoke service is always tailored to every client;
• Full Planning Applications
• Householder Applications (extensions, alterations, outbuildings, etc.)
• Pre-Application Advice (ascertaining the likelihood of a development, etc.)
• Lawful Development Certificates (permitted development rights)
