Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

As another very unusual year draws to a close, we would like to wish all our clients and prospective clients, their families and friends, and everyone we have worked with a very Happy Christmas!

The pandemic has resulted in a great deal of change for those working in the property industry.

It has seen many more of us start working from home, choosing to create new office space perhaps, and has seen an increased emphasis on using our properties for leisure purposes.

While some people have moved house to achieve this, others have made the decision to extend or remodel their existing homes or to add garden studios, offices and leisure spaces.

For architects, this has certainly made it an interesting time, yet it has not been without its challenges.

Despite changes in planning, it can still take a considerable time to achieve the required permissions and higher costs of building materials, some shortages at certain points and busy contractors have meant clients have not always been able to proceed with their projects as quickly as they would like.

But like everyone else, we have risen to the challenges and found solutions wherever possible – we have adapted our methods of working where we have been able to and as a result have delivered some interesting projects.

As the new year begins, Howie Architects is already looking towards a busy and very varied 2022 – but we are, of course, also always happy to hear from new prospective clients.

Whether you are looking for a loft conversion, extension, annexe or new-build project, contact us to find out if it is something we can help you with.

Our friendly, hands-on team members can offer you their advice and talk through your options.

This could be the year you achieve something new and exciting with your property and hopefully it will also herald easier times for all of us.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

From Howie Architects
