About Us

Welcome to AHA Design Architectural Designers, Beaworthy Devon, a new concept in design thinking! We specialise in helping you transform your ideas into reality.

We are architectural designers that specialise in preparing and submitting planning applications in the south West of England. We are based in Beaworthy, Devon and we have clients throughout Devon and Cornwall, so if you are in need of planning permission and you're in the South West then we are here to help.

We prepare plans for domestic, agricultural and equine clients and provide a complete service form the initial consultation through to the submitting of plans, site visits from the authority to town and parish meetings if required.

We are happy to come and help with anything from new builds to garden buildings, from agricultural barns to stable blocks.

Initial Consultation

The Project Brief

During our first meeting we aim to gather as much information as possible about your wish list for your project...

We'll take a look at the site, where the proposed changes or the build will be and then discuss your likes and dislikes. This enables us to be able to create a design brief so that we better understand the design constraints that we are working to.

Initial Designs

Producing 3D Design Ideas

Once appointed as your architectural designer, we produce a range of 3D drawings and floor plans that meet your brief...

Once completed, we arrange a second meeting where you can select a design, agree any changes to make it fit your needs more fully. During this meeting we will carry out a full ste survey to ensure that we can complete the technical elements of your brief.

Production of Plans

Transformation of Design

Next we develop the chosen design and produce each of the documents that are required for the planning application...

We use all of the measurements taken during the last visit and produce detailed drawings of the existing property such as elevation drawings, floorplans and roofline and then produce all of the plans for the new build or extension. We involve you fully during this process.

Pre Planning Meting

A Review of the Plans

We never put plans in until you are completely happy with the design and we are happy to make changes until the plans are submitted...

By this stage you will already have seen everything we have produced however, we always meet with our clients to thrash out any last minute changes to the design and obtain your approval prior to submitting the plans for approval, we give you total control!
