There’s no place like home. The spaces we live in everyday – where we live and eat, we entertain and play, we grow and learn and feel safe are gyd architecture spaces. Inspired architecture and affordable good design really can be a part of everyday life and at gyd architecture we help you create your ideal home – for one or two, for a growing family, or for an extended family.
Working closely with you to understand how you will live in your new or changed space, and making sure it connects seamlessly with existing spaces are all part of transforming your ideas and dreams into lived spaces using the design and build experience and knowledge of gyd architecture.
We offer professional services in the design and construction of buildings, preparation of plans, home extension, loft conversion or dividing a property into separate units. We can advise on your planning permission rights and obligations. Is your extension, conversion or change classed as a ‘permitted development’? Planning permission may not be needed before starting work. gyd architecture can help you find out.
Initial meetings include discussion of the processes involved, options for styles of architecture and the types of materials available. Models and 3D visualisations can be made to assist in the early stages of the conception of the changes to your home.
Architecture requires the creative manipulation and coordination of material, technology, light and shadow. It encompasses the pragmatic aspects of realizing buildings and structures, including scheduling, cost estimating and construction administration.
Architecture is home. gyd architecture can help you make it your ideal home.
A Structural Engineer has a significant understanding of static and dynamic loading, and of the structures that are available to resist them. The complexity of modern structures requires creativity from the engineer to ensure that structures support and resist loads.
Structural Engineering became a defined and formalised profession with the emergence of the Professional Architect. Until the late 19th century, the architect and the structural engineer were one and the same in the person of the master builder. The professional Structural Engineer emerged with the development of structural theories developed in the early 20th century.
Structural Engineering and Architecture are inseparable. In house Structural Engineers are consulted on more challenging and complex schemes during the early stages of design at gyd architecture. From engineering design and analysis to designing the individual elements of a structure like beams, columns, and floors of a building, our Structural Engineers are responsible for ensuring sound structural design and integrity of work.
If a Structural Engineer is needed, we will provide a competitive quotation for you at the earliest stage of the process.
