Residential Architect Services

At MP Chartered Architects, we believe in transforming spaces into exceptional homes. Our expertise in residential architecture encompasses a comprehensive range of services designed to bring your vision to life. Whether you’re looking to renovate, convert, extend, or design a new home from scratch, our team is here to guide you every step of the way.


Residential architecture is the art and science of designing and constructing homes that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing. It involves creating living spaces that meet the needs of the occupants while reflecting their personal style and preferences. This branch of architecture focuses on the unique requirements of residential buildings, such as family dynamics, lifestyle, and comfort, ensuring that every home is a true reflection of its inhabitants.


The landscape of residential architecture in the UK has evolved significantly over the years. From the traditional charm of Georgian and Victorian homes to the sleek, modern designs of contemporary living spaces, architectural trends have continually adapted to the changing needs and tastes of homeowners. Our architects are adept at blending these historical influences with innovative design concepts to create homes that are both timeless and modern.

Our work is influenced by the rich architectural heritage of the UK, incorporating elements that honour the past while embracing the future. Whether it’s preserving the integrity of a historic property or introducing cutting-edge design to a new build, we are committed to crafting homes that enhance the built environment and improve the quality of life for our clients.


Sustainability is at the core of our design philosophy. We understand the importance of creating homes that are not only beautiful but also environmentally responsible. Our architects are experts in sustainable design practices, incorporating energy-efficient solutions, eco-friendly materials, and innovative technologies to minimise the environmental impact of our projects.

From passive solar design to rainwater harvesting systems, we integrate sustainable features that reduce energy consumption and promote a healthier living environment. Our goal is to design homes that are as kind to the planet as they are to their inhabitants, ensuring a greener future for all.


We take pride in our ability to create bespoke housing designs that cater to the unique needs of each client. Our approach is highly personalised, taking into account your lifestyle, preferences, and requirements. If you’re considering a home remodel or house extension, stunning new build home or barn conversion, our architects will work closely with you to design a home that exceeds your expectations.

We believe that a well-designed home is a sanctuary, a place where you can relax, unwind, and create lasting memories. Our housing designs are characterised by thoughtful layouts, seamless integration of indoor and outdoor spaces, and attention to detail, ensuring that every aspect of your home is perfect.


Renovating an existing property can breathe new life into a space, enhancing its functionality and aesthetic appeal. Whether you’re looking to update a single room or undertake a comprehensive renovation, our architects will help you transform your home to meet your needs and preferences.


Converting unused spaces, such as lofts, basements,  agricultural buildings, barns and garages, can significantly increase the usable area of your home. Our architects specialise in creating innovative conversion designs that maximise space and add value to your property.

Our team also has extensive experience in converting single-family homes into houses of multiple occupancy (HMOs), skillfully navigating the complexities of such projects to deliver high-quality, compliant living spaces.


Adding an extension to your home is an excellent way to create additional living space and improve your home’s layout. Our architectural team will design an extension that seamlessly integrates with your existing property, enhancing its overall design and functionality.


As residential architects, we offer a comprehensive range of services for new build homes, whether private or larger commercial development projects. We provide personalised design plans, ensuring the integration of sustainable practices and modern technologies to create energy-efficient and comfortable environments. In the case of private developments, we manage all phases of the project, from initial concept and site analysis to detailed construction drawings and overseeing the building process. Whereas, for commercial developments, we specialise in creating adaptable spaces that enhance productivity and community engagement, incorporating innovative design solutions that comply with local regulations and planning laws.

Technical Drawings & 3D Visualisations.

Bringing your vision to life starts with detailed technical drawings and 3D visualisations. Our architects use advanced software to create precise, scalable drawings that serve as the blueprint for your project. These technical drawings ensure that every element of the design is meticulously planned and executed, from the foundation to the finishing touches.
