Design Surgery: Online Architecture Consultation

We believe good design should be accessible to all, and most importantly considered at the very beginning of a renovation or new build project. In 2019, we began offering Design Surgery consultations at the Alexandra Palace weekend Farmer’s market to solve renovation problems and share design advice with our local community, with all proceeds from the 30-minute consultations going to charity. 

Not even a global pandemic could stop their popularity, and since moving our Design Surgery sessions online in 2020, we’ve completed over 200+ meetings and raised over £1000 for New Horizon Youth Centre and Masks for Heroes. 

We have been overwhelmed by the support and generosity towards these important organisations.

We are continuing to offer 30-minute online consultations in an effort to raise contributions for the New Horizon Youth Centre (please send us a screenshot of your donation once we have confirmed your slot; suggested minimum donation, £20).

The consultation includes the following:

1. Initial advice with one of our architects on how to develop your brief, and how it will align with your budget and project timeline.

2. Expert advice on the possibilities available in terms of design and construction.

3. Explanation of the process of hiring and working with an architect.

We have designed and delivered beautiful homes and extensions throughout London, offering our clients the opportunity to experience personal and thoughtful architecture that improves their wellbeing and day-to-day lives. Our projects have been published in numerous national and international publications, including Dezeen, Grand Designs, The Sunday Times, and The Evening Standard. 

“Morning shout out to Amos Goldreich Architecture. If you are thinking of extending or changing your home and want some design advice then their design surgeries are – i can personally testify – brilliantly helpful.” 

– Phil Kerry, CEO at New Horizons Youth Centre.

Who are these sessions suitable for?

These Sessions are suitable for people who are at the beginning of their project, who would like an understanding of the process, and want to explore their projects options. Our clients tend to be time poor, and don’t have the time to carry out their own research, and find these sessions to be exciting, inspiring, and insightful.

Common scenarios we can advise on

  1. We would like to convert our loft but are not sure if we can and if it will receive planning permission.
  2. We just bought a house which has not been touched for many years and needs complete modernisation and remodelling so that it fits our lifestyle and brief.
  3. Our kitchen is too small. We need more storage!
  4. We bought a plot of land and would like to build a house on it.
  5. We would like to completely remodel our house and add a basement, loft and side extension.

Can you advise me prior to purchasing my property?

Yes. We can advise on possible ways to improve the property by alteration, conversion or extension. This helps our clients understand the full potential of the property they are considering and informs their decision on whether the home is likely to meet all their requirements.

Is the consultation free?

We offer a 30min online consultation and in return ask that you donate £15 (or more, if you like) to New Horizon Youth Centre . Please send us a screenshot of your donation once we have confirmed your slot.

What is the next step after the session?

The next step will depend on your individual project. We offer a fee proposal to take your project from concept through to completion on site. The cost for this optional service is £150+VAT

What should we bring with us to the consultation?

Please bring as much information as possible about your house. This can included the following:

  1. Any existing plans e.g. estate agent plans are perfect.
  2. Photographs
  3. Your wish list of changes to your house
  4. Any questions you may have.
