About

Who are we?

We are not Architects.
We are Architectural Technologists.
We use technology to help you visualise spaces, improve drawing accuracy and reduce errors.

“We can make better use of space in your existing home or design a lovely new space for your family to enjoy for years to come.”

Whether you want to move or improve, or your current house doesn’t suit your needs, we can help. Complete Architecture are home design specialists and have extensive experience in the design and renovation of property. The company designs neat house extensions, new build homes and handles planning, building control and construction matters with ease. Our mission is to help people enjoy their homes by making them complete, creating more space or that dream extension.

We use the latest technology, including BIM (building information modelling). Rather than coordinating lots of drawings separately, with  BIM we work on one building model. This updates all the drawings simultaneously every time we work on it, meaning there is less margin for error. We can also make changes easily such as adding a new window or door. You can visualise your space with advanced 3D modelling and interactive 3D floor plans, bringing your home renovation to life.

Keep it simple

Complete Architecture has transformed many tired and dated houses into chic and contemporary homes. We even take the worry away from you by dealing with matters such as planning permission and find reliable contractors to complete your design work, saving you time and hassle. Our transparent pricing will help you stay on budget and avoid any nasty surprises, while our down to earth approach will mean you completely understand what is happening at each stage of the project. There is nothing mystical about Complete Architecture.

Here at Complete Architecture, we like to keep things simple. We avoid jargon and offer straightforward packages to help you get the most out of your home update. Our Complete Package aims to make your home the best it can be without blowing your budget. Whereas if you are at the exploratory stage, our Concept Design package will help you discover if your building project is worthwhile before fully committing.

5 Steps to Success

A home renovation or update needs to not only look good but be well built, suit your needs and crucially the budget should not spiral out of control. To get the best out of your renovation project and avoid problems further down the line, we have developed our 5 Steps to Success. We break things down into Survey, Design, Detail, Cost and Appoint. Following our five steps will help ensure your renovation project runs smoothly. You will also get clarity on the process of renovation and extending your home.

Company director Jon Clayton, a Chartered Architectural Technologist (and all-round nice guy), has worked in architecture since 1996 at award-winning practices both here in the UK and in Australia. Jon loves solving home design problems. He has helped hundreds of clients transform their home and maximise their property’s potential. This problem solving ethos is central to the company. Jon and his team will work closely with you to understand your requirements and ensure you get the best possible design solution for your home, helping you avoid any pitfalls along the way.
