Alrewas Architecture


Extending your dwelling is probably the most logical means of creating larger and better living spaces. Permitted development is in place for some of the most simple extensions. If you decide to take advantage of permitted development we always suggest applying for either Prior approval or a Certificate of Lawfulness. This covers the build in the event that planning issues subsequently appear.

A householder planning application is straightforward and takes, from the point of reaching the right design, 8-12 weeks.

Most extensions are excellent additions in that they generally create more natural light and open plan spaces to the traditional separated dining/kitchen/living room formation.

The Family dynamic has moved towards living and working together in open plan spaces where multiple activities can be carried out simultaneously.

We have provided schemes and gained approval for many extensions ranging from small considered extensions to large full scale changes in layout. All are unique and designed with the owners, their family and the way that they live – and want to live - at the forefront of the design.
