Stanley Architects design simple, elegant buildings and alterations with internal layouts driven by the functional relationships between their uses, whilst celebrating craftsmanship.
We take the time to listen to our clients, bringing our experience and expertise to the table in order to create unique and inspiring designs that suit both the project budget and timescales. Many of these projects have received commendations and awards for ingenuity and design.
Stanley Architects is not just a planning and drafting service. Many “architectural consultants” have not undergone the mandatory seven years training required of an Architect, or have the flair and skill necessary to provide a unified design solution that has been thoughtfully considered. We have and we will.
We are open-minded, lateral thinkers: thriving upon new challenges; seeking innovative solutions to problems; always striving to provide contemporary designs that are both simple and elegant.
Depending on the context, we may propose a contrasting design solution or one that fits comfortably with its neighbours. Even with projects that involve historic or listed building work, we believe that a modern design solution will enhance the existing context.
The reuse of existing buildings is important and we have the expertise, skills and qualifications for adapting and reusing redundant buildings in our towns and cities. This is a sustainable approach to the existing building stock.
Daylight and artificial lighting are always considered and will influence the design layouts to ensure different experiences for the occupants during different times of day.
The materials selected will be robust and are often a combination of natural, traditional and modern technologies. We believe in utilising products and materials that are fit for purpose and will always investigate opportunities to incorporate new systems where these have been proven to be of benefit in the industry.
