About Vesica Design

I am an ARB registered freelance architect and I specialise in designing home extensions including conservatories and loft conversions as well as developing community projects in and around London. I will also give an initial design assessment as your architectural consultant if you are buying or have just bought a home.
I aim to help you refurbish, extend or alter your home, making special effort to help you design and specify out what's right for you and help you manage the process.
I will meet you and discuss your project then send you a quotation for my fees and an idea of budget costs for the project promptly.

  • Residential Design Services

    James has been great in pulling together a set of architectural plans for our planning consent. He’s been patient as we’ve kept developing the brief and brought the risks associated with our proposals to our attention. Always very prompt and professional.

  • 3 bedroom terraced house floor plan alteration

    Couldn't have been more happy with James' work. He was extremely patient, calm and very knowledgeable about all the local council restrictions (which is a must). He really put our minds at ease and managed our project right through to the builders being onsite (even after which he was more than happy to help on a few extra issues). In summary, James is the sort of person you want guiding you through what could otherwise have been an extremely stressful process were it not for his calm, dedicated and very thoughtful approach. Thanks for everything James, we love the place!!

  • Small extension (3mx4m)

    James is a competent, knowledgeable and reliable architect. He worked hard to get us the extension we wanted within what building regulations permit. We recommend James without hesitation to anyone in need of architectural services.
