Our Saffron Walden office in Essex, is perfectly located to serve Essex & Cambridge residents with professional architectual services.

Our services cover projects from inspection, preparing Feasibility Schemes and Reports, through to Full Design, Specification, and Project Tender. As a design consultancy we can offer on site assistance, and supervision of the building work as required.


Home Extensions


Every year we design over a hundred extensions to private homes.

We are able to interpret our client's requirements, to meet their budget constraints, & to successfully negotiate the necessary approvals from the Local Authority.

All of our designs are individual, & are prepared to reflect our client's wishes.

We offer a design and application service, and when required can project manage the construction to give our clients total piece of mind.

Loft Conversions


We prepare the designs for over 80 Loft Conversions every year, both directly for householders, as well as for Loft Conversion companies. Architectural drawings might sound fancy, but they’re an essential part of achieving a quality loft conversion. Alun Design specialise in designing loft conversions. We work with our clients to help bring their visions to life, and take the first step in creating their bespoke perfect space.

Loft conversion designs speed up the building process and maximise the potential living space of your loft. We would always recommend getting an architect on board. That’s because loft conversions require additions to your roof, often, increasing space and head height. Projects that change the exterior appearance of your home come under stricter planning, so you’ll need someone to design your space who has an understanding of both planning, and experience in creating approved structures in the past.

Lofts can be challenging to design, but the benefits to the end user are huge. We will be able to advise you on potential designs, what you will need to have in place in order to comply with the Building Regulations, or if in fact you will require planning permission. To be on the safe side, check with your local planning authority before starting any work.

Our services have helped homeowners in Cambridge, Essex and the surrounding counties, to unlock the full potential of their loft space.

Barn Conversions


Alun Design Consultancy has been responsible for the design of over 100 barn conversions, taking unhabitable agricultural buildings and turning them into fine residences for our clients.

Before the building work begins, careful negotiation is required with Conservation Officers from the Local Authority, to achieve these challenging conversions.

All barn conversions designed by us, respect the design and heritage of the building, and introduce a pleasing blend of contemporary interiors, making the most of the natural light available.

We have carried out barn conversions in Cambridge, Essex, Hertfordshire and across the South of England. This has enabled us to work with truly bespoke buildings and materials, contributing to our team's wealth of experience.
