Metters and Wellby Architects: Crafting Contemporary, Beautiful and Functional Spaces.

At Metters and Wellby Architects, we believe that every space has the potential to be both functional and beautiful. Our mission is to work collaboratively with our clients to create spaces that are tailored to their individual needs and visions.

Our portfolio includes a diverse range of projects, from modern contemporary new builds and small housing developments to traditional barn conversions and modern extensions.

We have experience working with various styles and types of spaces, and we pride ourselves on our ability to adapt to each unique project.

Whether it's a housing development or complete home renovation, we approach each project with the same level of enthusiasm and dedication.

Our design process is centred around the client. We take the time to understand their needs and preferences, and we work closely with them throughout the entire project. We believe that collaboration is key to creating a space that truly reflects the client's personality and style.

Concept and Design

The process starts with an informal conversation to discuss the feasibility and potential of a new project.

We evaluate the site in depth, organise surveys and recommend any specialists required. We always consider the site's surroundings, opportunities, and constraints to ensure we can maximise its potential.

Initial concepts will be presented for client feedback. Powerful visual techniques are used to present each concept. All designs can be evolved from 2D sketch images to 3D digital models. These models provide a tangible visual representation of the design. Our stunning concept packs ensure to bring your vision to reality.
