Design Haus Architecture’s process is based on the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Plan of Work.

This framework provides a solid foundation for each project; however, we always retain a flexible approach within those steps in order to tailor the process to the client’s and project’s needs.

We work with clients throughout the entirety of the project, from initial first concept through to completion of the build. This approach, coupled with our expertise, innovation and design credentials, enables the most transformative results.

Thanks to this dedication, great customer service and innovative design, we were awarded ‘Designer of the Year’ at The Architecture Community Awards, as well as ‘Best Residential & Small Commercial Designer’ at the LABC East Midlands Awards.

"The 3D software was so useful, making it really easy for us to understand the technical drawings and visualise the end-goal and design.”

The first step we take with any project is to carry out a measured survey of your existing property. We then translate this into an accurate 3D model using GPS.

This process lends a new perspective on your home, which in turn helps us work together on the best design decisions for you.

We look at moving walls, windows and furniture to create new and exciting spaces. Your vision is always at the heart of the design process.


This is when you start to see your vision come alive. We can show you where natural light will land, how different material finishes affect the mood of the space and how your furniture and fittings work in the room.

We are one of very few architectural design companies that offer Virtual Reality (VR) as an architectural design tool, not simply for design presentation.


As our client, you can walk through a fully realised, digital version of the design scheme before any construction begins. This allows you to understand the future design in the clearest possible way.


We will liaise with all planners and relevant authorities to ensure that your design can become a practical reality.


We take pride in implementing a thoughtful and considered approach to architecture, and have a long history of successful planning applications.

Technical drawings ensure that your project complies with current building regulations.


We will submit the drawings to an approved inspector who assesses the information, provides feedback and requests additional information if required. As with the planning application process, we will liaise with all relevant parties on your behalf.

Once the plans are approved, the drawings can be passed on to your chosen contractor.

We can prepare a building specification which will assist your chosen contractor throughout the project.

The specification provides clear instructions on project intent, performance and construction. It can protect you from poor workmanship and ensures you get the finished product you require.
