An architectural practice with a reputation for pursuing design excellence.

Distinctive, stylish and contemporary designs

Architects Atelier is an established design-led architectural practice based in Dartford, Kent. We provide three key services: architecture, planning and visualisation. Our aim is to provide clean modern architectural solutions, and to take the hassle and complexity out of building and designing your own home and extension.

Innovation in design, planning, sustainability and construction technologies has established Architects Atelier’s reputation within the residential and mixed-use sectors. Our experience ranges from private sale and mixed tenure housing to affordable housing; with projects ranging from individual houses to large-scale mixed-use developments of up to 20+ new homes.

Over the past four years we have built a reputation for consistently delivering imaginative solutions for our diverse range of clients, working with developers and private clients to deliver high-quality projects through strong design principles and a commercial understanding of scheme viability and what is fit for purpose and location.

We constantly strive to become even better at everything we do, so innovation is Architects Atelier’s ethos.

We’re also passionate about building as sustainably as possible, and that’s one of the reasons we’re working on a ‘Green Extension Design Guide’.

This will show the average home owner how to improve their home and extension, and will exceed the thermal performance requirements stipulated by Building Regulations. This guide will also be a bible for builders looking to develop their own construction knowledge with current regulations.

Architects Atelier has been able to grow thanks to our client-focused one-stop-shop approach (design and Building Regulations packages) that puts quality at the forefront of what we do, not just in terms of product, but also our level of customer service, both during and after the build of the extension.

That said, quality shouldn’t come at any price, which is why making sure we deliver value for money is another of our priorities – it’s certainly a major consideration for most people when choosing someone to carry out building work. And that’s why we do our best to be fair and transparent in all that we do, so that you can make the best-informed choice about whether to use us. We provide you with customer testimonials and make available a design database with kitchen design ideas and loft conversion ideas.

If you like the sound of what we do, then call us on 01322 837810 or contact us to arrange an appointment. We will assess your property, and you can tell us what you want and hope for from your project.


The team at Architects Atelier is led by Barry Stott-Brookes. Barry’s experience over the past 15 years involves working in several practices undertaking high-end residential, residential new build, residential and commercial interiors, refurbishments, student accommodation, commercial use (and change of use), public sector for schools, sport centres and private healthcare projects. Barry has also been involved in several high-profile residential developments working in the UAE (United Arab Emirates), including the design of the Space Flight Academy. Barry led the planning and design aspect of this potential development; he unwrapped the complexities of local planning policy and climate challenges involved in bringing an eco-friendly scheme to the Middle East, and managed and presented it to various members of the Royal Families.
