Helyer Davies ArchitectsHelyer Davies Architects

We are an award winning practice of architects and building technologists working from design-led studios in Emsworth. The practice was established in 2003 and has a great reputation in architecture and design.

We approach each project with fresh enthusiasm. We love designing and aim to exceed our client’s expectations. Helyer Davies Architects regularly undertakes commissions ranging from contemporary installations to historic restorations and works closely with clients from inception to completion, in order to ensure the best possible results.

Every project is unique and we are committed to creating bespoke solutions that respond creatively to each project’s specific requirements. When working on a project we believe that good architecture is only created through a close dialogue between client and architect.

Our design process is methodical but instinctive, based on architectural and technology driven ideas. We work hard to ensure our projects are consistently delivered on time and on budget. We also pride ourselves on our excellent client relationships, this is illustrated by our high percentage of repeat clients.

Presentation

The Helyer Davies Architects design team have been using 3D CAD modelling for a number of years and are thoroughly proficient in the application of 3D technology in the context of architectural projects. Now viewed by most people as a fundamental part of architectural design, 3D visualisation is nonetheless a complex procedure and our designers are ideally placed to utilise it to the benefit of their clients.

We also employ various other mediums to demonstrate our concepts. These range from simple freehand sketches, 2D computer plans, 3D rendered computer models, watercolour elevations and photorealistic renderings/photomontages.

We like to use the 3D capabilities of the computer as a design tool rather than a presentation tool. Once the model is built we can set cameras up and view any perspective that we choose. This is particularly good to demonstrate a scheme to a client.

What we do

Understanding and developing the brief is one of the most important stages of the architectural design process and Helyer Davies Architects works closely with every client in order to deliver outstanding results that are succinctly tailored to their needs.

We offer a comprehensive RIBA service, able to deliver projects from inception to completion. We are committed to helping clients identify and realise the design strategy that best suits their needs. We can provide a range of services including feasibility studies, concept design, planning applications, detailed design and Building Regulations applications, as well as contract administration through the construction process.

TECHINICAL Information for Contractors

2D Cad drawings are used to explain how our designs technically work. This can be to clients during the initial design stages or to contractors on site who need detailed information on how to physically construct the project.
