Architect designed house extensions

We provide architectural services for residential extensions and refurbishments to houses and apartments across Murcia and Alicante. Our architect can supervise the extension of your villa, townhouse or apartment from the first project sketches stage up to the final acceptance certificate of the work. The architect will develop the design of the extension of your house according with your needs and in your own language. The architect also takes care of all the administrative steps to get planning permission, dealing with council planning authorities and responding to client feedback. In extensions, our architect is responsible for specifying the work to be done, ensuring that shortlisted builders/other suppliers meet the agreed criteria, and making periodic site visits to ensure that everybody is doing their work correctly. If you hire us for the extension work on your house, your chances of a project that is on time and on budget will be much improved.

Our Designs

Our designs are based on adaptation to modern lifestyles and family living, so it is very important to establish a visual and spatial connection between the kitchen/dining/living areas and the extension of the house. When designing an extension the architect will try to open up the walls, create views and circulation paths between the internal and external spaces. Architect designed house extensions could be of a traditional design and in keeping with the character of the existing villa, townhouse or apartment. Alternatively a house extension can be a modern-looking addition that establishes a dialogue between the existing house and the new addition; these are the two main design approaches and variations will depend on the specific character of the property.

Planning Permissions

The building alterations may be structural, such as:
     -Building a new room extending the house
     -Building a garage or a porch with tiles and concrete
     -Building a second floor
     -Installing a lift
     -Removing or partially removing a structural wall, floor or chimney breast
all of which requires planning permission from the council (called in Spain 'Major work license') and a technical project developed by an architect.

Alternatively, the alterations may be non structural, such as:
     -Converting your current pergola to a porch or conservatory
     -Replacing windows and doors
     -Inserting new window and door openings
     -Changing internal partition walls
     -Refitting your kitchen
in these cases you need another type of permit, called in Spain 'Minor work license'.
In both cases we can manage all the forms and work you need to make your thoughts a reality.

Energy Performance Certificates

If you are thinking of selling or renting your property, you must arrange for an Energy Performance Certificate before you advertise it for sale or rent. An EPC is a document which gives your property an energy efficiency rating within a range of 7 values, from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient). The certificate is valid for 10 years.
Houses are classified on the basis of two indicators:
      -Consumption of non-renewable primary energy, expressed in kilowatts per square metre per year.
      -Carbon dioxide emissions expressed in kilos of CO2 per square metre per year.

After submitting the EPC to the registry of the Murcian Region, you will receive an official designation with the energy rating of your property. This must be included in any advertisement designed to sell or rent any building or house.

Following a visit to your home to take the necessary information, our architect can issue this official document, using the Government approved software and dealing with all necessary procedures to obtain the official designation with the energy rating.
The cost of our services depends on the size of your property.
