Daniel Armstrong Associates are a family-run business that supports clients in designing their homes to create beautiful, functional spaces that reflect their unique needs and budgets.
We are a husband and Wife team who run the design studio, Dan has over 20 years experience working on a range of projects from residential to commercial and Lucie has worked with Dan for 8 years as a CAD technician and specialising in 3D design and interiors.
We have 2 young boys aged 6 and 3 who keep us busy and we are currently renovating our family home. We are here to help and support you through the whole process from the first stages of design and can help all the way up to completion.
The process typically begins with a consultation between the design team and the client, which includes an assessment of how the space will be used, as well as factors like size constraints and budget considerations. With this information, the team can then create detailed drawings and 3D renderings that allow clients to visualize their new home from every angle, ensuring that all elements are executed to their exact specifications.
Daniel Armstrong Associates works on a wide range of projects, from small residential home, new builds to larger commercial projects.

Architecture is an incredibly fascinating field that can inspire creativity and innovation in the design of homes. A well-designed house can provide functionality, comfort, and aesthetic appeal to its inhabitants. One key aspect of a successful house design is the balance between form and function. For instance, elements like light, ventilation, and space should be thoughtfully integrated into the design to create a comfortable atmosphere. Additionally, materials that are durable, energy-efficient and sustainable should be prioritized as they reduce environmental impact while enhancing the home's overall quality. Whether you prefer contemporary or classical styles or something in between, we can create homes with varying designs to match your preferences!
Building a new house is an exciting project that involves careful planning and decision making. When it comes to architecture and plans, there are many factors to consider. First, think about your lifestyle and the design elements you want in your home. Do you need more bedrooms, outdoor living space or an open floor plan? Also, don't forget about energy efficiency and sustainability - incorporating green features into your design can help save money on utilities while also reducing your carbon footprint. Finally, before any building takes place, make sure you have obtained all necessary permits and approvals from local authorities for the construction of the property. With careful planning, attention to detail and collaboration with professionals in the industry, you're sure to enjoy many years of happiness in your new home!
When it comes to extension plans and planning, it's all about maximizing space while maintaining aesthetic value. Whether you're looking to extend your home, office or any other building, careful consideration needs to be made regarding the internal layout and external appearance of the structure. The floorplan should account for necessary infrastructure changes such as plumbing and electrical fittings, along with sufficient ventilation and natural light sources. The most effective extension plans usually include an open-plan design concept as this tends to provide a sense of spaciousness without compromising on functionality. Furthermore, eco-friendly materials are also being incorporated into modern-day designs in order to reduce carbon footprints while still maintaining a high standard of quality. In summary, by blending style and practicality through detailed planning you can have an amazing building that serves both your short-term objectives and long-term aspirations.

3D Design and CGI
3D design and CGI are revolutionizing the field of architecture, making it easier than ever to visualize plans for buildings and structures. By creating 3D models that can be easily modified and rendered from different angles, we can create more detailed plans with greater accuracy. This is particularly useful when presenting plans to clients who may have difficulty visualizing a flat floor plan in two dimensions. Additionally, CGI technology allows us to present plans in a more realistic and immersive way, allowing viewers to see how a building will look in different lighting conditions or even at different times of day. With these powerful tools at our disposal, we are able to plan and execute projects with greater precision, efficiency, and creativity than ever before.
3D design is great for helping to choose finishing materials for your build and we can help at any stage of your project whether it been externally or internally to help you visualize your design.
When it comes to interior design, the layout of your home is crucial. A great layout can make a space feel spacious and inviting, while a poorly thought-out one can leave you feeling cramped and claustrophobic. To create a great home layout, start by assessing what you need and want from each room. Think about how you will use each space and what furniture or decor will help facilitate those activities. Consider the flow of traffic between rooms, how natural light enters the space, and where storage solutions are needed. With these factors in mind, experiment with different furniture arrangements until you find a configuration that feels comfortable and functional. Finally, don't be afraid to add personal touches that reflect your unique taste and style!
When planning your project don't forget to think about how the project will be finished, most clients can get over whelmed when it comes to the final stage of the build, so planning the finishing touches should start early in the project. We can help support you through this and discuss your options.
