We offer a full architectural service through all RIBA work stages. We will tailor both the level and range of services to individual client needs, informed by our extensive experience on past building projects.
In line with our vision statement that “the success of a design depends on the quality of the connections we have” in our practice, every project begins with a free initial consultation to connect with you, our client, at your home or building site. At the initial consultation, we aim to connect with your aspirations, your needs, the building’s history and environs, this will inform the design process. If we don’t believe we can genuinely add value to a project, we will let you know.
Tait Architects undertakes all scales of domestic projects, from single and two storey extensions, through remodelling of houses, to complete new build projects where we help you to realise your Grand Design.
