Architectural Design, Full Planning Services, Construction Design and Full Building Regulation Services for Extensions, Conversions, Re-modelling & New Homes

As a family run business IHD Architectural Services are able to offer a personal, friendly, professional, and fully comprehensive design, planning and building regulation service for extensions, conversions, re-modelling and new homes. 

Our services are primarily available throughout The New Forest, Southampton, Romsey, Winchester, and Fareham areas; however, we are also able to undertake projects further afield.

IHD Architectural Services was formed in 2010 by husband-and-wife team Simon and Debbie Ashworth. Simon has 35 years’ experience within the construction sector and undertakes the design process, while Debbie deals with the architectural administration and planning consultancy.

In 2015 as the number of clients and complexity of projects increased, we felt it important to be able to offer clients face to face project meetings during the design phase and moved from our home office to our current design studio at Hythe Marina Village. 

We pride ourselves on providing our clients with a professional friendly service and understand that every project is individual and needs to be approached accordingly.

Extension design, planning, structural, energy and building control reports plus approvals

Verified Review

We knew roughtly what we wanted; a side extension/orangery. We employed the services of IHD because we liked the quality of the plans visible on their website. It was more than eye candy. It was a great choice. Right from the onset everything was explained clearly including the processes involved and costs. Simon and Debbie make a great team and drove the process from concept to design to planning and building control approval. I'm sure mileage will vary depending on the project but we achieved approval first time at every step. I highly recommend IHD and would use them again in a heartbeat.

Architectural plans and submission for planning

Verified Review

A highly efficient husband and wife team. Nice, simple, and slick operation. Plans were prepared within the time frame and documents submitted for consideration by the planning authority (National Park). Throughout the process we were updated and kept informed. Truly pleasant experience. We now need to convert the plans into reality!
