Our Fees

Are you excited about the idea of working with us but worried about our fees?

We thought the easiest way of putting your mind at rest would be to run through the numbers with you – and to explain why sometimes we can't give you an accurate figure without talking first.

Residential Projects


If this is your home and you're ready to invest over £200,000 in its transformation, we’d love to talk. . For our ‘full architectural services’ – meaning we’re involved from the very beginning to the very end – our fees are between 10% and 15% of what the project costs to build.

So, for our minimum £200,000 project, our fees for everything we do (that's everything from 'Setting the scene' to 'Enjoy!' in our Alternative Guide) would end up between £20,000 and £30,000.

If you're thinking you'd rather spend that on a new sports car, just remember what we're saving you from – the stress, the cost of mistakes, the uncertainty, the logistical difficulties, the corners being cut, the grey hairs... It's a no-brainer, really, if you're investing in something as close to your heart as your own home.

 The exact percentage we charge depends on the complexity and the input you need, but once we know what's involved we'll be able to let you know where your project falls. We talk a little more about this in our FAQs, so do have a look there, but really it's a question of getting in touch so that you can tell us more.


Responsibility for safety on site

As well as being your architect, we take on the role of ‘Principal Designer’, and you can read about what that entails and why it's so important here. Our fee for this is around 1% of the build cost, again dependent on the size and complexity of your project.

Initial advice

If you're looking to buy a home – or any other type of building – and you'd like some initial, straight-talking advice before committing, then we’d love to talk to you.

We'll run through the opportunities as well as the planning implications and other constraints, and we’ll lay out the pros and cons so that you know exactly what you're dealing with.

For a 30-minute Zoom call, the cost is £120 (payable in advance), and that includes our prep time and follow-up notes. Or if you’d like us to visit the property with you, we’ll send you a bespoke quote which covers our travel time and expenses.

Commercial Projects

If you're a business or a communityget in touch with us. We work on all sorts of different projects (workplaces, multi-unit housing, masterplans, shops, schools... the list goes on), and there are so many variables, so many possible scales and budgets, that all we can do at this stage is resort to cliches and ask 'How long is a piece of string?'.


We’d love to hear from you if your mission fits with ours.
