Who we work with - France and Associates are a forward-thinking and enthusiastic registered architectural practice based in Huddersfield.
Our expertise is in designing bespoke homes for individuals who have suffered catastrophic injuries. We are recognised as a trusted partner by national legal firms in the UK to act on behalf of their clients to provide accommodation reports right through to implementing proposals.
In comparison to competitor "Disability Architects", we have gained a reputation for incorporating inclusive, creative design within a home. We avoid clinical finishes and do not provide solutions to meet statistical spatial requirements. We aspire to create an environment to look and feel like a home and try to avoid "standard" accessible solutions.
We provide an all encompassing architectural service, taking a project from inception to completion.
Regardless of sector or size of project, we offer a professional yet friendly service, tailoring our approach to the project in response to the brief, making France and Associates the ideal architectural practice to design and manage your new home, residential development or other project.
We have a strong core of professional and qualified staff, as well as trusted partners to facilitate collaboration on larger projects or when specific expertise is required.
What we do - France and Associates provide an all encompassing architectural service, taking a project from inception to completion.
We are involved as early as assisting a client to purchase a property and development, assisting in any early concept designs and cost forecasts, providing the client or representatives with an educated decision in the viability of their development opportunity.
We follow such early feasibility involvement right through to on site project management, to handing the keys over to the end user.
Our involvement often goes beyond this to offer services on future maintenance or future required adaptation, and therefore feel it is important to ensure working relationships remain strong throughout the process through good communication and involvement with relevant parties.
How we like to work - We are passionate about what we do and how we go about it and have therefore invested in the latest technology and software to enhance our architectural services.
Our approach is to use the form follows function design policy and firmly believe that good, dramatic design can still be achieved within a budget, good design doesn't have to be more expensive.
We like to consider every client and project on its own merit, optimising their potential through a careful analysis of the brief and its constraints.
