Full Team

who are we

Established by Matt Noades in 2016, Noades Architects offers clients 20 years of residential architecture experience in Chalfont St Giles and surrounding areas. The team, based at the design studio in nearby Chorleywood, has completed numerous new builds and extensions throughout Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire.

Passivehaus Certified

What is Passivehaus?

This sought-after standard relates to the design and construction of homes  that are exceptionally energy-efficient. This results in a home that is both comfortable and requires minimal energy to run. Sometimes referred to as Passive House, the standards required are tightly controlled by the Passivhaus-Institut in Germany. Studies show that houses built to this standard require only a fraction of the energy to heat that typical houses in the UK require, and considerably less than a typical new-build house.

planning applications

Chalfont St Giles is a beautiful village on the edge of the Chiltern Hills, and part of the commuter belt for London. The good travel connections and scenic surroundings makes it a sought-after area, and consequently a good area to invest in property. Extending or rebuilding houses in this area requires planning permission from Buckinghamshire Council and will also be reviewed by Chalfont St Giles Parish Council. The old centre of the village is designated as a conservation area, which will require further planning details and approval. Check the map of conservation areas and monuments. In common with much of South Buckinghamshire, the village is surrounded by Green Belt, which brings other restrictions. In many cases, permitted development can be considered – please get in touch to discuss your needs.

Matt has been on a journey with us. He listened to all of our desires for our dream home and gave us everything we wanted, all the while anticipating planning issues and guiding us through their many, many hurdles. With his meticulous nature and strong attention to detail, Matt is everything you would want in an architect - he was determined to provide us with our dream home whilst ensuring we remained realistic with what was possible within budget and design conscious throughout. We can’t wait to move into our new home! 5+ stars for Noades Architects.

Extremely professional firm of architects who were keen to explore exciting ideas on a complete refurbishment. Supported throughout the process and were always on the end of the phone for any questions. Knowledge of the local planning process was one of the key areas of expertise. Would recommend Matt and his team to anyone in the Three Rivers District.

Noades Architect's collaborative approach has been invaluable to our projects for many years. Their guidance and expertise were pivotal in keeping everything on track. Particularly their flexibility and willingness to adapt to changes have made a significant difference. I hope we can continue this level of collaboration in future projects.

Matt designed an extension to our detached house in late 2018/early 2019. It comprised of a single story en-suite bedroom and adjacent garage. We were very pleased with the whole design process and re finished product. Matt was very approachable and took the time to ensure that everything was exactly as we had agreed. He then made regular visits throughout the build to ensure that our building contractor adhered to all aspects of the design. We would have no hesitation in recommending Matt to others who want a friendly professional local architect.
