Who are Calypso Studios?
We are an Architecture and Design practice specialising in private residential architecture in London & Surrey.
With over 20 years’ of experience in the industry - specialising in large scale residential projects - Calypso Studios founders James and Eleanore, have refocussed their vast breadth of knowledge towards delivering homes and housing for the community. Our specialism at is realising your home renovation, extension or loft conversion to its greatest potential.
We are very proud to be a part of the local community of ‘makers’ here in Hampton Court, Surrey.
The feasibility stage is the exciting part where we start the design process. We will visit your property and carry out an initial appraisal, discuss the project brief and identify a suitable scope of construction work.
Developed Design – Planning + Building Control Application
We will produce existing and proposed plans, elevations and sections for your approval and submission to the local planning department.
In tandem with the planning application, we will engage with, and submit plans to Building Control. As part of this submission we will also issue the Structural Engineers design and calculations for approval.
Technical Design - Tender
The tender process is where the Architectural and Structural information is used by prospective builders to generate a cost and program for delivering the works.
On instruction from you, usually once we have a planning approval in place, we will develop the planning drawings into a more comprehensive, dimensioned tender drawings and specifications.
With a competent contractor in place, the responsibility for delivering the project on time and on budget is transferred to them. We can assist you, helping to navigate your way through the construction period, by playing a support role until completion.
