We have been working with Niell and his team at SRA in redesigning an existing planning passed house design. We have found them to be highly efficient, offering good choice of recommendations and proposals and very easy and pleasant to work with. The brief had to take place within a short period of time and the team were very accommodating with this, especially in difficult Covid times. I would highly recommend using SRA for future plans.
We met this Client through our partnership with Houzz where they were looking to add extra space to their recently purchased 3 storey mid-terraced property. With a generous garden but the requirement to retain an existing parking space, the extension could only project a limited amount. The Client was keen for a modern aesthetic and wanted the works to avoid conflicting with the First-Floor windows which went hand-in-hand for a flat roof construction. The flat roof construction helped maximise internal ceiling height, whilst having minimal effect on surrounding neighbours.
To maximise natural daylight and throw light into the existing living space, full-height and full-width bi-fold doors were introduced along with 2 large roof lanterns, creating an open and airy space. A secret gutter was formed along the existing external wall at roof level to avoid cluttering the rear elevation, with downpipes and drainage discreetly incorporated within the fabric of the building.

What our clients say...
SRA Architecture have made so much difference – we now have six parking/pull-in spaces with our own filter lane taking the school traffic away from the lane, leaving it free for the residents and through traffic including emergency vehicles.

Niell provided me one of the most professional services I have received. The quality of service was outstanding, Niell answered the phone every time and answered any questions I had the same day whether by email or phone. The plot I was looking at was also of a beautiful design. I would confidently recommend anyone to use SRA Architecture.

SRA Architecture worked for us on two different occasions & projects, a small one and a bigger scale project. They were advising, helpful, great at planning, very knowledgeable and always kept us updated. I would definitely recommend!

SRA have designed new houses and building alterations on a number of projects we have tendered for and worked on over the past 20 years or so. Their plans and specifications are consistently clear and thorough and the architectural work in the construction phase has been excellent. I have found them to be one of the leading practices we have worked with throughout this time.
I have worked with quite a few architectural practices over the years, I can honestly say SRA are in the top draw category of design companies. Their designs and drawings are of a really high standard. They are thorough and methodical. Their specifications leave little to doubt which means you can precisely quote for what you are being asked to build. […] Plus they are nice people, professional and easy to work for.
