Contemporary Architecture

Here at Ercle we align the vision of each client with our unerring passion for pioneering contemporary architecture. We skillfully combine the worlds of architecture , technology and interior design to create buildings with character both inside and out. Our talented team of architects have delivered inspirational and award winning properties for homeowners, self builders, landowners and real estate developers throughout the UK.

We have architecture offices in both Devon and Bath, but wherever you are in the country we can create intelligent, thoughtfully-considered designs for you and your next project. Combining functional knowledge with an unmatched innovative creative flair, our contemporary, sustainable design ethos delivers on every level.

Whether you need help to transform your ideas into a tangible design, you need assistance in developing and implementing your planning proposal, or would like our expert architects to gently steer you through to the construction stage and beyond, Ercle’s architects will skillfully craft your vision into a reality.

A contemporary approach

The initial design stage is a time bursting with possibilities, but the visions for the dwelling can sometimes seem like a distant unachievable dream. During the initial design phase, we know that flexibility is key as it is the time when ideas and concepts are explored. We work consciously with each and every client to ensure that the design fits the brief and to create living spaces which exceed expectations.

Using cutting-edge design, we explore the finer details of your build via advanced BIM technology so we know exactly what to expect as your project comes to life. Bridging the gaps between design and construction, we create intelligently-designed buildings which consider the impact of the world around them.

Our talented team of architects thrives on the challenge of creating beautiful architecture which is functional in design. The result is environmental, financial and socially responsible buildings with innovation at their core.

Pushing Boundaries with Intelligent, Contemporary Architecture

We design buildings which have lower energy bills, superior internal comfort and constant fresh air circulating, creating a living space to be proud of.
We work with a hand-picked selection of specialists, and have a great relationship with engineers, construction and planning teams to ensure that your project is executed seamlessly from start to finish. From private to commercial, contemporary to heritage restoration, at Ercle Architects we bring more to your living space.

We create properties with a strong connection to their surroundings for clients who care for the environment and sustainability.

Responsible, Contemporary Architecture

At the heart of each architecture project are the people who use it. Whether you are extending your property, planning a housing development or wanting to build your dream home, we listen to you to make your dreams a reality.

Underpinned by strong ethics and with a constantly forward-looking design ethos, our innovative solutions ensure that your project is sustainable and responsible on every level. We fully embrace cutting-edge technology to make your building truly work for you, as well as for the environment.

  • 03BIM

    We embrace technology and are constantly striving to be at the forefront of new developments.

    Using Building Information Modelling (BIM) software to generate a 3D model of your property, means we can assess how it will look and function from the outset. This technology enables us to carefully analyse structure and form, ensuring potential mistakes are remedied before arriving on site. We can even link the model to a virtual reality headset to allow you to walk around your building virtually prior to build.

  • 04Planning

    Planning is one of the most important stages of a project, and we’re well-versed in the rules and regulations involved in this vital process.

    We can help steer the whole planning permission procedure (including retrospective applications and appeals), as well as advising on building control and whatever else it takes to get your project out of the ground. As well as designing your property, we can help to guide you through any applications, approvals and negotiations with statutory bodies which might be required as the design develops.

  • 05Interior Design

    At Ercle we work holistically to ensure that the whole space works for you, interiors included.

    We believe that a property’s interior design goes hand-in-hand with the architecture itself and the two elements hold equal importance. Space planning, furniture and joinery designs, lighting design and interior finishings are all crucial aspects when creating buildings with character both inside and out. We offer a complete interior design service to ensure that the vision is able to continue through into the living spaces of your abode.

  • 06Heritage

    We start with a deep understanding of a building’s heritage and interpret the historical context when redesigning listed buildings.

    We work sympathetically with the building to bring about a space which looks forwards whilst not forgetting its past. We love the challenge of incorporating modern insertions into a historical setting to show the clear definition between old and new.

  • 07Visualisation

    Visualise your project

    A integral part of architecture is understanding the spaces we inhabit and by using computer generated models alongside virtual reality we can envision these spaces before they are even built. We can then in real time, alter the built form, testing choices and accurately seeing the results of these design changes
