As experienced architects in Poole, Dorset, we offer the full range of residential architectural design services and we have completed many projects across Poole, Bournemouth, Dorset, Hampshire, Wiltshire, Somerset and Berkshire. We produce high-quality architectural design solutions, and understand how to ensure our residential designs have the optimum chance of gaining planning approvals, even on sites where other consultants have previously been refused permission!
Our architects have the experience necessary to understand how to respond positively and sensitively within local Conservation Areas, Greenbelt and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We have successfully negotiated planning permissions for additional dwellings on sites within Conservation Areas and gained approval for a large extension and reworking of a farmhouse in the Purbeck AONB. We have also obtained planning approval for a bespoke, contemporary country house design within the New Forest greenbelt obtained through an exemplary design.
Studio MODA can be entrusted as your architect to work on historic buildings, using our knowledge and experience. This is based on our commitment to understand and appreciate the heritage qualities associated with a building’s particular unique history. This background research helps inform and create a sensitive proposal and a successful listed building planning application for sympathetic renovation architectural work and additions to important heritage buildings. Such examples include approvals obtained for wholesale traditional window replacements on a Grade 2 listed Georgian building, advertising signage and specialist reconstruction of listed landscape walls.
When Studio MODA Architects work on existing buildings we promote a shared vision with Clients. Whether it’s old buildings that need complete renovation or beautiful new extensions being added. We work hard to ensure good collaboration and dialogue is fostered between us and the Clients. This helps to create clear Briefs to define aspirations and assist project delivery. Our attention to detail and close Client focus is always provided, whether it’s an old outdated building that needs a complete renovation or a new add-on extension. Refurbishments and extensions can be more resource-intensive than some equivalent sized new build contemporary residential design projects. Studio MODA Architects are able assist the Client from the initial outset right through to completion, providing guidance through all the work stages and dealing with the unexpected to ensure a successful project outcome.
