APS has designed many contemporary new builds and extensions.  

Extending an existing property is an ideal opportunity to consider transforming the property as a whole, shifting the focal point, retaining positive existing elements whilst considering a modern and contemporary outlook.  Along with client requirements APS will carefully consider site context, site constraints and environmental conditions/ location to assist in forming a clear and coherent modern design.  To achieve a modern contemporary aesthetic and sustainable design, careful consideration is given to:

  • Client requirements and budget
  • Green energy/Renewable energy sources
  • Sustainable design & building materials
  • Energy efficiency
  • Context, site constraints, environmental conditions and locality
  • If extending an existing building- how can the position/orientation of proposed additions transform the property
  • Careful consideration of types of structure and building technique
  • Appropriate specification of quality materials and good detailing
  • Limitations of the Contractor
  • Longevity/durability of materials used
  • Waste reduction
  • Life cycle of materials used.
  • Future maintenance of building.

We asked Andrew to design a modern functional new sea side property he came up with a truly wonderful design, spacious and light.
Even though we were 250 miles away it was very easy to communicate and he gave a very personal service, with help all the way through the design process, planning consent and assistance with build issues.
We were concerned about being able to extract the maximum from the site,
Andrew managed to get a two tier building on the plot and sea views.
It is our dream house.
