about us

dark skies design ltd are a small friendly company based near Barnard Castle in County Durham, offering a range of architectural and design services to both homeowners and commercial clients.

Whether you are considering converting an outbuilding or attic space, extending your property, or creating an off-grid eco house, we can help make your dreams a reality.  From modest alterations to ‘Grand Designs’  we have extensive experience in projects of all sizes and believe good design can add value for money regardless of your budget.

We offer a service tailored to your requirements and can guide you through the construction process from initial design, gain planning permission and building regulations approval to completed build, or simply provide advice at an early stage.

Unlike some purely architectural practices, dark skies design can also assist with interior and landscape design for clients requiring a complete service.  A  core principle of our work is advising clients on living and working more sustainably which can include making a building more energy efficient, saving money and employing renewable technologies.

So if you need more space for a growing family or would like advice on how to reduce your energy costs, please contact us to arrange an initial consultation at your property.
