The Online Architectural Platform
Resi.co.uk is the UK’s first online architectural service, combining technology and human engineering to provide affordable design and planning advice to anyone considering home extension, conversions or new builds. Aimed at homeowners, developers, contractors and estate agents, it’s 10 times cheaper and 10 times faster than traditional architects. Floor plans and 3D renders are produced within 72 hours and Resi.co.uk works alongside surveyors and contractors to support planning. The studio is based in London but due to the online nature of Resi, we can provide architectural assistance to not only the UK, but international homeowners. Our price range from £250 to £2000, depending on your choice of package.
How we work
We create efficient and accurate 2D floor plans, 3D renders and elevations in less time than a traditional architect, and at a fraction of the price. As an online architectural service, we rely on cutting edge technology in order to output drawings faster, which means cutting costs, not reducing quality. Our client-architect interaction is carried out over our handy Resi dashboard, which keeps all information in one place and avoids the need for endless emails, and we’ve carried this out on 750 residential building projects to date.
Our Bespoke Packages
Designed for those at the initial stages of planning a home improvement project, our Concept Package keeps things simple while keeping costs to a minimum. This package allows you to explore the feasibility of your project, and to create a design to suit your objective and budget. First we will chat with you on the phone to fully understand your requirements and what you are trying to achieve with the build. Then our UK based design team will work on designing your new space in 2D. Once ready, the plans will be sent to you for review and if any amendments are needed we will complete a free revision. All of this for just £250.
Designed for those renovating or extending their home and aiming to obtain planning permission, our Planning Package provides you with everything you need in order for this to be achieved. Once we have acquired the floor plans and measurements of your property, we begin with a telephone consultation to fully understand your requirements and what you are trying to achieve. This conversation will consist of a screen share where you and your architect will be interacting and going through various possible construction ideas and spacial iterations. By the end of the call, hopefully, you will both have decided on a final building conception. Our UK based team will then work on designing your new space in 2D. Once ready, the plans will be sent to you for review and if any amendments are needed we will complete a free revision. We then help you submit the necessary forms to secure planning permission or certify your permitted development. Our planning package starts from £720.
Planning and Survey
This package is designed for those who do not have access to existing floor plans. Clients receive everything contained in the Planning Package, but with an on site measured survey. This involves visiting the property and using cutting edge technology to accurately capture the existing dimensions and elevations of the property.
Once you have finalised the design, the next step is to consider whether you wish to create a detailed design package. There are a number of advantages in this approach: Building regulation drawings can be used to secure approval from building control Technical specifications make it easy to get like for like construction quotations Detailed drawings allow the builder to understand what to construct We have helped over 700 people plan their building project and we use this knowledge to give you excellent advice at every stage. Our planning package starts from £775.
How We Started
After having difficult times with their own residential projects, Resi’s co-founders Alex and Jules were convinced that technology could be used in the architectural industry in order to create designs faster, and at a lower cost. This meant that architecture could become more accessible to anyone improving their home with a home extension, not just in London or the UK, but internationally. Using innovative technology and online resources, Resi.co.uk has created a more succinct and logical way to experience an architectural service. Across the whole of the UK, we have now successfully completed over 750 residential extensions, and we can work with you to help you understand what is possible with your project.
