Residential Garage Conversions

Are you considering converting a garage into a functional and innovative living space? At MP Chartered Architects, we specialise in the intricate art of garage conversions. Our team is passionate about reimagining existing spaces and turning them into comfortable, stylish, and functional areas for your family to enjoy. With a deep understanding of the unique needs and challenges of residential properties, we plan and execute each project to blend your vision with cutting-edge design elements.

Our architects and designers work closely with homeowners to understand their requirements, ensuring that every project we undertake not only represents architectural excellence but also serves as a beautiful and practical addition to your home.

Through years of experience and a relentless pursuit of excellence, we have established ourselves as leaders in the field of garage conversions. Whether it’s converting a garage into a liveable space, a cosy guest suite, or a games room. Or if you are lucky enough to have a detached garage that is not connected to the main house, you are in the ideal position to turn it into a self-contained annexe. MP Chartered Architects can turn your garage conversion dreams into reality, preserving the essence of your home while embracing modern living.

Architects who never park an idea

Garages have the potential to become transformative spaces within your home, but realising their full potential demands vision and expertise. At MP Chartered Architects, we take pride in our ability to envision residential spaces that foster comfort and functionality.

With our experienced architects, we can help you convert your garage into a beautiful extension of your home. Whether your new room is for an entertainment area, a utility room with additional storage space, or a functional home office, we know how to make these spaces come alive within the context of your home.

Our talented design architects will work with you to design and build a garage conversion that not only meets your practical needs but also enhances your living experience. 

Choose the right Residential Conversion Experts

Selecting the right architects for your garage conversion project can have a profound impact on the quality of living and functionality within your home. At MP Chartered Architects, we offer more than just architectural expertise; we offer a partnership committed to enhancing your living environment. Our architects possess a deep understanding of the intricacies of residential construction, getting building regulations approval, and the evolving needs of homeowners. Most garage conversions are considered permitted development, meaning you generally won’t require planning permission. It’s a good practice to verify this with your local planning authority for confirmation.

Also, when you’re excavating foundations close to a neighbour’s property, you’ll probably require a Party Wall Agreement or award. This document records your neighbour’s building’s current condition and their approval for the work.

We specialise in navigating the complexities of garage conversions, including adapting to changing lifestyle trends and sustainability standards. With meticulous attention to detail, we ensure that your project not only complies with building regulations but also enhances the overall atmosphere of your home. There are many regulations to comply with, including ensuring your floor is damp-proof and getting a building notice or full plans application from the local council.

Planning and collaboration with garage conversions

Transforming a garage into a modern living space is a journey. Our process simplifies the complexity, ensuring that your vision becomes a reality. It takes careful planning and collaboration to achieve the full potential of your residential property.

Step 1

Connect with Us

Your garage conversion journey begins with a conversation. Contact us to discuss your ideas, garage conversion cost, and project timeline. We’ll provide insights and guidance tailored to your specific needs. Every garage conversion is different, and our expertise ensures that we tailor our approach to meet your unique requirements.

Step 2

Designing your garage

Our architects craft detailed design concepts, ensuring your vision comes to life. We consider every detail, from the functionality of the space to the overall aesthetic appeal of your home. Whether you need a cosy living area, a spacious home office, or a utility room with additional storage space, we have the expertise to create a design that aligns with your goals.

Our experienced residential design experts have worked on a diverse range of projects, from turning garages into comfortable living spaces to creating stylish home extensions. We understand the unique needs of different homeowners and can create environments that foster both comfort and personal enjoyment. For example, if natural light is a priority for you, we could replace the garage door with glass sliding or folding doors.

Step 3

Finalising Converted Spaces

Once the design is finalised, we oversee construction, ensuring every aspect aligns with the plan. Your garage conversion becomes a tangible, beautiful space for living and enjoyment. We have the local knowledge and connections to navigate the regulatory requirements and ensure that your project moves forward smoothly.

To comply with building regulations your garage conversion must reach certain requirements. For example, they must be structurally sound, have a damp-proof course, and include insulation for your garage floors, walls and loft so it is energy efficient. Whilst a DIY garage conversion is possible, we would highly advise against it due to how many complex regulations there are to comply with.
