We are an award winning architectural design practice
committed to traditional, modern & innovative design
andrew p r love architecture . design . planning– is an award winning South Norfolk based architectural design practice, formed in 1987 by Andrew Love. With our main office in Diss, we work across both Norfolk & Suffolk.
Andrew has experience in working on a large variety of project types gained whilst working in the offices of Feilden & Mawson Architects and Lambert, Scott & Innes. These practices are of considerable size and are very well respected not only on a local footing, but also recognised nationally and internationally.
All our work is a result of client reference and we actively promote a close working relationship with our clients and consultants. We have excellent local knowledge and contacts with a large and broad-ranging portfolio of projects throughout Norfolk & Suffolk in both domestic and commercial sectors.
We are experienced in producing and handling all planning & building control applications, then seeing them through to a successful consent. We have close ties with specialist planning consultants for more complex enquiries and appeals. We also have good relationships with the local authorities; therefore we can help clients understand why a previously presented scheme is failing and how it might be helped through to approval.
From structural engineers to ecologists to quantity surveyors, we only use experienced specialists; people we are comfortable working with and with whom we have a good relationship.
Our founding expertise was gained in alterations and adaptation schemes to existing properties, with a particular need to be sensitive to their existing environments and promote maximum sustainability. We are able to offer specialist knowledge for listed building and conservation work.

We are an ecologically aware architectural design practice situated in Bunwell, Norfolk. The practice provides advice on current building regulations, permits & planning, site supervision & monitoring, contractual management & architectural design consultation.
Our portfolio consists of domestic and commercial projects demonstrating the practice’s ability to use modern materials in sympathy with the local environment and to create projects that may stand out or blend, but which are always unique, successful and pleasing within their context.
We enable clients to gain access to the best expertise available for their projects, advising and supporting building contractors, enabling them to plan and build with accuracy and confidence.
We believe that good design is seldom the result of inspiration.
Our clients generally know what they want, occasionally in detail, sometimes in broad outline, typically as a range of options. Outstanding design emerges from a careful assessment of each and every option.
Good design is only a part of a successful scheme. Projects require a feasible design, a detailed specification, an appropriate contractor, regular supervision and the creativity to solve site issues.
We try to achieve the highest practicable standards of energy conservation. We encourage clients to invest in suitable technology and high levels of insulation.
We consider energy savings and running costs at an early stage of the project. Rather than a rigid design philosophy, we offer a pragmatic balance of competing considerations, and deliver an appropriate development.
we bring added value to your project
The right way is not necessarily the most expensive way. Our architecture is always buildable. The detail of your project informs the very first sketches we will produce for you. You can be confident of a holistic approach to meet your budget.
We are committed to providing a service that is tailor-made to our clients’ needs. We listen closely to our clients, and work with them to fulfil their aims.
We believe in involving the local planners, the local community, and all other interested parties at an early stage. This engenders ownership, and means we are extremely successful in achieving a high level of planning approvals.
The practice has a long and good close working relationship with all the local planning authorities within the Norfolk & Suffolk area.
We offer a flexible service, covering all stages of design and construction, from feasibility to contract, design to construction, and supervision through to completion and handover to the client.
We cater for schemes and projects within the domestic and commercial fields and, specialise in the conversion of old and redundant buildings, large domestic extensions, single bespoke houses and housing development projects.
We recognise that all our clients have different needs. We can offer any level of involvement from acting as a one-stop-shop – where we carry a complete project through from conception to fruition, to a simple advisory or architectural technologist service.
