About

Ben Parsons Design is an Architect’s Practice founded in 2003.

Our clients are predominantly homeowners looking to build new homes or extend/remodel existing houses, and we also work with developers and contractors on projects of a larger scale.

The practice is run by a husband and wife team. We’re proud of our friendly approach and much of our work comes through recommendation from existing clients.

ARCHITECTURAL SERVICES:

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) is the professional body for architects primarily in the UK. The service we offer follows RIBA’s Plan of Work. This industry-standard model for the building design and construction process is divided into 8 work stages. RIBA have published a document about working with an architect which goes into detail about this working process. It provides useful overview of how we can assist with the delivery of your project.

LANDSCAPE DESIGN:

Increasingly we are being asked by our clients to further explore the relationship between home and garden. We have expanded our services to include our love of garden design, and we have a growing portfolio of projects which include plans for hard and soft landscaping as well as full planting schedules.

COMPUTERISED VISUALS AND FLY-THROUGHS:

We have found that many of our clients benefit from seeing 3D Computer Generated Images of their projects enabling them to visualise the changes we are proposing. This might take the form of still images, or in some cases, a video fly-through of the entire project.
