Why choose YSA

Redesigning a home is a big investment of time, energy and money. It can also be highly personal – with the potential to transform the way that you live.

Our approach is to listen carefully to your thoughts then interpret them through the lens of our expertise. We have the design sensibility to capture your dream on paper, and the technical knowledge to ensure it is delivered in ‘concrete and glass’.

Your architect should be someone who tells you what they really think, not what they think you want to hear. We are honest about costs, and as careful with your money as we would be with our own. We believe that it’s far better to have a realistic idea of what to expect than face unpleasant surprises later on.

Above all, choosing the right architect is about trust. Unless we trust one another, it is difficult to do great things together.

The architect you choose should have a rigorous approach to planning the project. We follow the latest Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Plan of Work 2013. ­ This proven process assures that the work is done comprehensively, methodically and to the highest standard.
