"I have a passion for designing spaces that work for you, bringing fulfilment and pleasure to your everyday life"


Patrick Arends

Developing Solutions

My design processes are tailored to create a bespoke design solution for you. I focus on functions and activities to fully understand what you want to achieve from your home and your project.

Whether you want to reconfigure your existing layout, introduce new functions or extend to gain more space, I will work closely with you using some simple but thought-provoking processes to fully understand what is driving your needs.

Depending on the complexity of your brief this could be through a series of workshops or a simple Q&A session exploring how you live your life now and where you want to be, now, and in the future.



The outcome of the design process will be detailed drawings, furniture layouts (where appropriate) and specifications which you can issue to builders for pricing, and where necessary, submit for Planning Approval.

The key to the success of all construction projects is to have thoroughly considered all elements of the design before your builder starts work on anything.

The more time you invest now the more successful the outcome!


Simple brief?

Not a problem!

Sometimes the solution is obvious and you just need a set of drawings and a package of information to issue to your builder.


About me

I have 20 years’ experience designing buildings, with a particular emphasis on how people interact with these spaces. Whether the building is a theatre, a library or a house, the principles are the same: the space should be inspiring, efficient, functional, fulfilling and pleasurable.

As a proud home owner and father of two young children living in Parkhead in Sheffield I am reminded daily of the importance of living in a space that can handle the practicalities of a busy life whilst simultaneously delivering an inspiring and enjoyable environment.

All these things can co-exist with some smart design!

I look forward to hearing from you!
