About Us

ADG is an architectural design service founded by chartered architect, Phil Shields back in 2001. At that time, it offered a personalized design service to residential and small commercial customers in London's East End, typically working on housing extensions, flat and loft conversions, and one-off houses, while also providing a 3D visualization service to other architects and developers.

The business is now based in Manchester, and has since extended its scope into high-end residential design, following the launch of bespoke plan sales website www.bespoke-homes.com, offering design services for contemporary or period style luxury homes.

Whether you're thinking of extending your existing home, planning a holiday home abroad, or wanting something entirely different, we can help you turn your dreams into a reality. Unlike design and build firms, our advice is impartial, we don't have any preferred solutions, and we are as passionate about creating something extraordinary, as you are.

While we offer a full range of architectural services, we understand that all clients have different needs and individual circumstances are unique, as such our services are always tailored to your exacting requirements, no more and no less.

I got very professional service from this company. The architect was patient, had great eye for detail and captured my imagination thereby designing me a very beautiful home. I am glad I found them online and I got more value for the money I paid. Generally very pleased with the drawings. Not sure it could have been better elsewhere. I highly recommend ADG Studio Ltd.
