Conversion of an existing terraced house into an HMO [House in Multiple Occupation] where the building is split into smaller separate rented units with shared communal spaces.

Aimed at young professionals, boutique interiors and creative adaptations were delivered to provide 5 separate bedrooms, each with an En-suite Bathroom. Stringent technical and fire safety requirements needed to be overcome to obtain Building Regulations approval and an HMO License.

Problems Solved:

Appropriate approvals from various different departments of the local authority and fire safety

What our customers say

I honestly haven’t found another architect with whom I have as much faith in!

“Nathan came on board with the project at a moment’s notice and was very accommodating with his time. We engaged Nathan to prepare the architectural design and drawings for the conversion of a single dwelling house to an HMO with 5 En-suite bathrooms. He also organised and managed the Structural Engineer and independent building control company. He worked well with my project manager and demonstrated a professional approach at all times. I highly recommend Nathan’s services.

I honestly haven’t found another architect with whom I have as much faith in! You prepare very good drawings, have a high level of technical knowledge and you’re also very prompt with communications.”
