Architectural Design

We know how hard it is to get a good balance between space, design and cost… well that’s why we are here to help.

Our first meeting will help us ascertain a working relationship and an understanding of what you are trying to achieve. A walk through of the property/site will allow a full understanding of any advantages/pitfalls with the project.  We will always try to iron out any issues before building works commence to allow for a smooth building programme.

Our designs are tailored to each individual project. A big factor in the design process is to work out the driving force behind the project, whether it is budget, size or design. This can be critical in terms of our conceptual plans.

"Jim has developed a distinctive style, turning mid-20th Century properties into contemporary family homes or creating modern new dwellings."

Since branching out on his own, Jim has developed a distinctive style, turning mid-20th Century properties into contemporary family homes, or creating modern new dwellings, again tailored to the individual client.

With the nature of the area in which he operates, there have been some tricky sites to overcome, whether it is tight access or no vehicular access, a flood risk area to locate a new school, sensitive sites in conservation areas, Jim loves a challenge.

There is no specific size of job that Jim will undertake with recent projects ranging from porch extension, kitchen extensions, new dwellings through to designs for a new school and a Mill conversion into 9 dwellings. Jim has also carried out some master planning for 147 houses, this was to create serviced plots for a self build projects and affordable housing schemes.

Over the years and with his local connection, Jim has built up a variety of trades, allowing him to recommend contractors to undertake the work, whatever the project. We believe in value for money on any project and will ensure that our client is getting exactly that. At ModArc we ensure that the contractors buy into our vision to achieve the best. Jim will design and oversee projects, however trust and reliability is key with contractors forming a great partnership from project to project.

We are blessed in the South-West of England with fantastic views of all natures from Coastal to Countryside and some very pleasant views over the roof tops, we will always find ways to maximise these views and believe in very light and airy spaces. You can follow us on Pinterest, which will give you a good idea of our design style.
