Let’s design something incredible together.
There are so many things to consider in any architectural design before putting pen to paper. Fortunately, New Space Architecture is here to help make this process as simple but thorough as possible.
When you choose to work with us, we want to make sure we fully understand you, your project and your requirements. To do so, we will take an extensive look at your design brief and needs by asking you questions about how you live and work. Doing so, we can understand exactly what kind of new space you are looking for.
In addition to this, each site or location will have its own set of unique design constraints. Whether it’s the topography of the land, orientation and views, boundaries and existing structures, these must all be recognised and carefully considered to ensure that your proposed design not only meets your brief, but also maximises the potential of the plot.
Then, of course, there is the budget. Given the high costs per square metre for building work, the efficiency and creativity of your new space is vital. At New Space Architecture our experienced and creative team will come up with bespoke design solutions by engaging with you personally to guarantee the proposal fits your brief, and ensuring we consider your budget to make sure what we propose is achievable.
Put simply, our design process starts with a member of the New Space team listening to your needs and encouraging you to dream. Your new space should be comfortable, practical, functional and a pleasure to inhabit and it is our absolute joy to help you realise its true potential. We’re with you every step of the way.
So get in contact with us today about our architectural design services from our Exeter office. Let a member of our team help you create your dream New Space.

What are ‘building regulations’?
Most people looking to undertake a building project understand that they may require planning approval first. What people often don’t realise however that that even if planning permission has been granted (or is not required), they are still likely to need building regulations approval. Whereas planning permission deals with the building’s appearance and its use, the building regulations govern the standard to which the building is then constructed. Failure to meet these standards may lead to difficulties when the owner comes to sell the property and in some cases can also lead to prosecution.
What type of approval do I need?
There are 2 types of building regulations applications that can be made; A ‘Full Plans Application’, or a ‘Building Notice’
What timescales are involved?
Both Full Plans applications and Building Notices are valid for three years from the date they were given to the local authority, and will automatically lapse if the building work is not started in that timeframe. Importantly, you don’t have to wait for approval before commencing work – provided that 48 hours’ written notice is given of your intention to start work, following a successful full plans application or issue of a building notice.
