St Ives Architects
We are an RIBA Chartered Architects Practice based in St Ives. We are creative, collaborative and responsive.
As an award winning architecture firm with over 30 years commercial and residential experience we understand how to help you get the most from your project. We converted an old flour mill close to the market square into our offices in the 1990s. We have completed many projects in St Ives and the surrounding area including Holywell, Willingham, Swavesey and Hilton.
We are particularly adept at developing one-off architectural design solutions to deal with constrained or sensitive sites. We will help you focus on opportunities and overcome challenges. From the early beginnings of a project - even before a site is acquired - through to handing over a completed building we act as development consultants to provide a comprehensive service. Our architecture services are always tailored to your specific needs.
We undertake site appraisals, feasibility studies, planning applications, architectural design, construction drawings, project management, interior design and contract administration. We have built up a network of good local contacts and can help you put together a team of professionals to ensure your project will run smoothly. As an RIBA Chartered Architecture Practice we are committed to the highest standards of professionalism, best practice and ethics.
Our considerable experience in the St Ives area negotiating with local planning authorities means that, whatever the nature of your project, we are architects highly adept at maximising your chances of gaining planning approval.
We frequently provide architectural services to adapt existing buildings. Change-of-use projects can provide fantastic opportunities. Retrofitting a building with new systems designed for high energy efficiency and low energy consumption is the sustainable option. We enjoy the creative demands of architectural design for listed buildings and buildings in sensitive settings such as conservation areas that may require additional planning consents.
Above all, we listen. Your priorities are our priorities.
