As you’d expect, we design and construct buildings from initial concept sketches and feasibility studies, and see projects through the planning and building regulations stages to the finished building. Here’s what else Hunter Architects brings to the table.
As a husband and wife team with experience designing and constructing our own bespoke family home, we are uniquely placed to assist you with the design, construction or remodelling of yours.
We appreciate the financial, legal and personal complexities, limitations and requirements of the process and project.
Let us guide you through the process from finding the initial site all the way through to furnishing your completed home.
Specialised knowledge, experience and qualifications
We have specialised knowledge, experience and qualifications in Architecture, Planning, the Code for Sustainable Homes, Secure by Design, Lifetime Homes and a range of other aspects. These combine to create contemporary, bespoke, affordable and appropriate homes for a wide range of clients. Sustainability is second nature at Hunter Architects, and integral to all our designs.
Unique expertise for your home
Our in-house RIBA Architects, RTPI Planning and Sustainability Consultants are integral to the team. Key people have an intimate and ongoing involvement in all projects, from conception to completion. You’ll not be impressed by the ‘Big Guns’ then left with a junior. We’re in this together.
Sustainable by design
Considered from the outset, we balance sustainability requirements with client needs to deliver the best possible design. We have experience in PassivHaus (Passive House), Eco Homes, the Code for Sustainable Homes, BREEAM Domestic Refurbishment and Home Quality Mark schemes.
Conservation Architecture and Heritage
If you are the fortunate caretakers of one of Britain’s historic buildings, only an RIBA Conservation Registered Architect will do. Your build requires careful, considered work and understanding to conserve the essential character of the building.
Gillian is listed on the RIBA Conservation Register, the specialist register for Architects with specific skills and experience in all aspects of historic building conservation, repair and maintenance.
With her expertise, we can guide you through the process of working on a historic building, and ensure that your historic fabric is conserved for future generations to enjoy.
We understand that a successful building and quality home is more than just walls and a roof. While the shell, daylighting, space and function set the tone for the project, the sense of homeliness and comfort are in the details.
For that reason, we work with a range of local craftsmen and suppliers including bespoke kitchens, ironmongery, internal doors, sanitary ware and windows. As part of our service we would look to introduce and integrate these aspects into the early design stages.
