Our services are tailor made around your requirements and needs. 

"We engaged David to design an extension for our kitchen. His brief was for a modern and contemporary design, in a style very different to the existing house, as we wanted it to appear as an obvious addition to the property. He suggested several designs and one in particular was exactly what we were looking for..."

what they say....

Mr & Mrs Bickham

My wife and I chose David Glassock Architecture to obtain Building regulations approval following a successful Planning application for a new build split level bungalow. It proved to be an excellent choice, he kept us fully informed throughout, nothing was too much trouble, he always returned calls and was on hand for technical support. He suggested alternative materials that he had used on other projects which improved the build and made the whole experience more pleasurable. 

We would not hesitate to use him again.

Mr & Mrs Foldes

Dave has been a joy to work with, designing us a fantastic extension which has  vastly improved the way we live in and use our home.  

David is conscientious, thorough and his knowledge of the technical aspects of our design were superb. Dave was always on hand to answer on site queries and had a great relationship with our contractor.

We would highly recommend Dave to anyone.
