Frequently Asked Questions

Some of the things we’re often asked


What’s the story
behind Adara?

We started back in 2015 with one goal – to design incredible places for people to live. Since then, we’ve made it our mission to make beautiful yet functional design accessible to all, turning simple design sketches into incredible homes. We’re a dedicated and passionate team with a vast breadth of expertise across the planning and design worlds, so your plans are in safe hands with us.


How are you different from other architects?

That’s easy. Half of our team are former local authority planners, and the other half are creative architects. Bringing these two worlds together flips the traditional approach on its head and is pretty “out there” compared to others. For us, it makes perfect sense. Because not only will we design incredible extensions, but we’ll also deliver the planning permission that your design needs to come to life.


What services do
you offer?

Basically, everything you will need to design and build your new extension. We’ve got creative architects to bring fresh, exciting ideas to the drawing table and help you reimagine your space. Our planners ensure that all your creative ideas sail through planning. Then, our project managers make sure your extensions are finished on time and within budget. We’re also here, day and night, if you just need some good old-fashioned advice or to discuss ideas.


Can you design
different options?

Just you try and stop us. There are always more ways to design a space than you might think – which is why we’ll offer as many options as we can, to learn more about what you like and need. It’s a truly collaborative process.


Are your architects

Well, we don’t want them going and getting all big-headed, but we like to think they’re some of the best in the business. They work hard to keep up-to-date with the latest materials, trends, techniques, and features, so you can make the best choices for you when it comes to creating your incredible new home.
