Please contact us to get started.



Our Concept Design packages offer initial designs for remodelling your family home or a property you're considering purchasing.

These packages provide tailored solutions to unlock the true potential of your space. Depending on your scope and budget, our services help translate your objectives into actionable architectural designs, empowering you to proceed with your project confidently.

Our packages can include the following deliverables:

  • Options for proposed sketch floor plans and elevations

  • Precedent imagery

  • Material specification

  • Planning and logistical considerations

  • An elemental budgetary plan

  • Phasing works diagram

  • Perspective sketches

  • 3D model with fly-around or walk-through animation


We utilise various tools, including freehand sketches and shared mood boards, to craft your design. Whether working from a simple property schedule and photos or arranging a measured building survey for accurate scaled detailed drawings, our designs are rich in detail and information. All floor plans consider the placement and outline design of furniture.

Each project receives its private website, ensuring easy access to all presentation materials and documentation. Our process is personal and designed to be as collaborative as you wish and are available for.


At the end of the concept design process, you'll have a clear proposed design and a set of objectives for its implementation. Mint Architecture can handle any necessary planning applications and assist in facilitating the next stages. With an extensive network of local professionals and construction contacts, we can help ensure that your vision becomes reality.


Prices start from £2,000.
