The future of architectural design, today
Designing and drafting a loft conversion, kitchen extension, garden room or even a newbuild home needn’t take months or cost the Earth. We are a much cooler, modern alternative to a traditional architect.
With the use of clever software, modern camera technology, video-conferencing and highly specialised designers we can produce architectural plans and get council permissions for domestic building projects much more quickly and efficiently than a traditional architect.

"Are you the same as an architect?"
No, we are Architectural Designers that specialise in domestic building projects. We don’t do hotels or shops or modern churches. We know the Planning and Building Regulations rules for domestic extensions, loft conversions and garden rooms inside out.
Every one of our Designers has a minimum of 10 years experience in architectural design. This means the architectural drawings you receive from us will be of exactly the same standard as (or better than!) your local architect.
How we began
Our founder, Dave graduated in Architectural Design & Technology, but after a short work placement, he noticed some serious pain-points for homeowner clients in the traditional architectural design process. Dave came up with a radical idea to provide planning drawings and building control drawings purely online to improve turnaround times, amendments and ultimately cost. Understandably, the initial concept of asking customers to measure their own home was met with some resistance at first, but he soon developed the concept of the 3D Home Scan. The existing technology was already being utilised in other industries and it was a perfect fit for Arkiplan due to it’s speed, accuracy and (let’s be honest) coolness.
In 2020 – After 9 years of gradually proving the concept to hundreds of satisifed clients, the COVID pandemic hit and suddenly everyone and their dog were looking for ‘online’ versions of every service. Suddenly we were introduced to thousands of people who were comfortable using video-chat software, looking to save time and money and wanted to get started NOW.
This is exactly who Arkiplan caters for.
Planning drawings & building regulations plans online.
We are a rapidly growing Architectural Design business, producing an ungodly amount of Planning and Building Regulations drawings for customers all over the UK. We’ve been at it for over ten years and have become experts at problem solving to get the best design possible for our customers lifestyles and we know all the tricks to increasing their chances of getting the Local Authority’s approval.
We constantly hear stories from our customers, and their failed relationships with Architects. They have often fallen out over huge drawing delays, spiralling unexpected costs, and a lack of enthusiasm from their designer.
Our promise is to provide high-quality architectural drawings for our customers and at a fair price – quick as you need them. Our standard turnaround time is 14 days, however, if needs be, we will charge an additional fee to bump you up the queue and work late into the evening if we have to.
