Whether it's a new house, a renovation or an extension or alteration to an existing home, our designs put people at the heart of it all. People who will live, work, and play in the building, whatever their health or mobility, whatever their age. This is the base, the foundation which we build on to create the space and light for this to happen in a way which is uplifting.

We understand that there needs to be a difference in approach between drawings which convey the design to you and those intended for the contractor. We therefore embrace pencil and paper as much as computer generated drawings.

“Thanks to Tom and Jo we have a cosy, light and airy home that is easy to run and maintain. Windows frame all the best views and allow sunlight to stream in from dawn to dusk. The house meets all our needs perfectly due to their attention to detail and their ability to listen carefully and thoughtfully to our likes and dislikes. Tom's design was sensitive to the challenges of the plot and the beauty of the surrounding countryside. Their interpretation of our wishes and efficient project management achieved both compliance with planning requirements and completion within budget. As a result of their vision, good humour and friendly support it was a most enjoyable project. We are delighted with our new home.”

“We are currently working on our second project with Tom McCardel & Associates, a partnership that promises to be as fruitful as our first. Their ability to design dwellings complementing the surrounding landscape; the use of modern materials which pay homage to traditional west coast architecture and the flexible provision of modern CAD drawings have all contributed in making our “journey” a very special experience. Moreover these attributes are underpinned by an empathic approach to people creating good working relationships between all involved.”
