A selection of our architectural and structural engineering projects showing the diversity of our work is shown in the galleries on our projects page.

Elmstone Design LLP is not bound to a particular style and embraces a wide range of architectural influences stemming from the needs and requirements of both client and site. The common thread in each of our projects is considered design and careful attention to detail from concept through to construction.

Whether you are looking to new build development ventures or breathing new life and purpose into an existing property, Elmstone Design LLP can assist you from initial advice through to full design, with project management services to realise your project’s full potential. Elmstone Design LLP can also provide separate specialisms such as Structural and Conservation Engineering, Planning Consultation, Building Surveys or 3D Visualisation.

Whether working directly for you, the client, or providing specialist architectural and engineering services to other building consultants, we aim to provide innovative yet cost effective solutions to the challenges that can occur when building projects are undertaken, using our planning and building experience to discretely resolve conflicts. We are also happy to undertake “inherited” planning permissions so that they comply with current Building Regulations and the client brief.

Quotes and Client Testimonials

"John Sutton is an architectural engineer – maybe a bit like Mr Spock mind-melds Frank Lloyd Wright. Deciding to hire John for what grew into a demo-rebuild of our small cottage in Ryde turned out to be pounds well-spent. We’re from the US (10 years in UK). It’s been challenging to re-learn work processes and the like in what is known here as a ‘self-build’ project. We had to trust the knowledge and judgment of a professional we hired entirely on reputation. What could go wrong? Well, it was a good decision: John as Elmstone Design took us through design and planning issues in a conservation area, gaining planning permission having listened closely to our needs whilst making the case for what is quite a change. We’re readying for next stages now. We like working with John and his work, but we’ll still make this review just 4 stars. Got to hold something til the end, don’t we?"- Yell Review 1
