Improve vs Move - It was great to receive both Planning and Building Regulation Approval for this bungalow extension in West Bromwich. Working closely with the clients #harperarchitects helped craft the eventual design gaining statutory approvals.

The 'Scalene Triangle' will be an integral part of the new roof design.  It will be great to see this project on site #ComingSoon

Green Belt

Harper Architects Ltd is located in Solihull within the heart of the West Midlands Green Belt which is governed by the strictest planning control and measures. Development within the green belt is often a big question we face from our clients and forms a large part of our working experience. Obtaining planning permission to build within the green belt can be problematic which needs a careful thoughtful approach adopting a sensitive design solution. Harper Architects are well versed with bringing about successful planning applications for developments within the green belt for both residential and commercial proposals. If you are thinking about building within the green belt, get in touch and lets start a conversation and see how Harper Architects can help you.
