Who we are
Progressive Architects was set up in 2009 with a purpose and passion to improve the quality of life of the people and to build dreams as we believe that “When you are talking about building a house, you are talking about building dreams” – Robert A. M. Stern. As everyone has his own dreams, no two houses are alike. Therefore, whatever we design, we believe in challenging the standard quos so as not only to be different but also to be better. Since established we have had the privilege of designing beautiful homes of dreams for our clients.
Progressive Architecture is working throughout Birmingham and the West Midlands across the Private Residential and Investment Properties. Within each project we seek to create a building that revolves around the principles of space, light and transparency.
At Progressive Architects we enjoy the Client and Architect relationship and the collaboration with other members of the design team and put our hearts and souls to make it the foundation for a successful project. We believe that the best design solutions evolve from a close consultation with our clients throughout the whole process of the project. This two-way interactive process between architect and client ensures that client’s needs and aspirations are realized and translated into distinctive architectural design. What we provide our clients are creative and innovative ideas for discussion and development with the Client and consultants, not standard solutions for every project.
Being a client focussed practice and experienced in working with various clients, we work with our clients step by step through an easily identifiable stages and support them throughout the whole of the project. To ensure the process is enjoyable, we make every attempt to tailor our service to suit each client’s needs and fulfil their requirements.
What we specialise in
Having a home designed to meet personal requirements is an excitingly unique opportunity to include everything you could ever need or want. This can be a loft conversion, kitchen extension, bathroom reconfiguration, home office space, side return extension, basement conversion or walk-in shower room, specialist lighting, under-floor heating, stylish and dramatic interiors, as well as exciting design features such walls of glass, showpiece kitchens, sauna room to name a selection.
With our extensive residential experience, we can bring creative ideas and make innovative use of space, light and design. Not only will we help you achieve your needs and aspirations, we will also expand your imagination of possibilities.
As well as working for private clients we also work for property investors who wish to maximise their return on investment from their properties.
Having the advantage of being property investors ourselves, we understand the power of bedrooms and the importance of utilizing space and how a small change can actually transform the whole property to increase cash-flow and profit with minimum cost.
From our experiences, we have developed techniques and expertise, which help maximise the financial potential of any project and ensure the work we do add value to your property investments whether through an extension, renovation or converting a family home into multiple flats.
Where required, we can provide a ‘business plan’ for a project which demonstrate the whole venture in financial terms, and calculates estimated yield and return on investment clients can expect to get on their investing project.
With our experience and expertise, Progressive Architects are very confident to be specialists that most investors think of when considering adding value to their properties and invariably enhancing its attractiveness to renters as well as buyers.
Our vision & culture
Progressive was founded with a vision of building dreams, not just building homes. We therefore commit ourselves to take responsibility to care for people in the world we live in, not only from the services we provide but also from the way we give back to society. With every project we do, 10% of the profit will be given away to charity to help build homes to poor people around the world. With Progressive, you will not only build your own homes, but also contribute to building homes of dreams for others.
With our vision, we have developed a corporate value system – a set of commitments that outlined how we would treat each other, our employees and our clients. Our goal is to create an environment of service, acceptance and caring, where people are respected, loved, challenged and encouraged.
