These homes too, were once just ideas
Period cottage renovation
Hamstead Marshall, Berkshire
We lifted the gloom by adding a vaulted kitchen with rooflights. In keeping with original features, the extension interior was traditionally designed with exposed oak trusses.
Renovation and extension
Inkpen, West Berkshire
We added charm and authentic detail to the exterior, opened up the interior and added a new roof with loft accommodation to create three floors of fabulous family living space.
Meet your architects
Backed by an amazing and dedicated team, managing partners Kate Cooper and Roger Scully are involved with the design and management of every single project, from design conception to building completion. Serving as your direct link throughout the entire process, Kate and Roger provide the expertise you truly want and need to see your home’s potential realised.
As Absolute Architecture’s founder, Kate’s passion for family living runs through the heart of the business and is evident in her designs, local expertise and supportive approach to home architecture.
Coupled with his keen eye for reimagining living spaces and skill for obtaining planning permissions, you’ll find Roger’s collaborative approach makes for a smooth and exciting process.
“Absolute Architecture was a joy to work with. Kate Cooper and her team worked with a tiny, decrepit home, large garden and stables from 1908 and turned the property into a show piece. They were sympathetic to the original design and area while making the home user friendly and comfortable for contemporary residents. They were knowledgeable about the many local laws and guidelines and used the best local craftsmen for the renovation and addition, all in a timely, warm manner. We are so proud of our lovely home; the result is truly beautiful.”

“We contacted Absolute Architecture as we were undecided as to whether to totally reconfigure our existing home or demolish it and start afresh. From our initial meeting Kate was knowledgeable and practical in her approach to our dilemma and we took the decision to new build. It was extremely important to us that the new build, whilst meeting our accommodation needs should also be in keeping with its environment and our budget. Kate offered several different design options and we opted for a linear building which we felt suited the site. The building construction and materials suggested by Kate has ensured the building has blended well into its environment and offers us a comfortable, practical, energy efficient home which we continue to be delighted with and we would not hesitate in recommending the services of Absolute Architecture.”
“We interviewed four RIBA architects. Kate was the only one who brought along a builder that she works with regularly and … it meant we had another professional to question about costs and time scale etc. Kate also arranged for us to see some of her other work in progress so we could see how the process would unfold – viewing the dust and mess prepared us for what would become our everyday life for several months. Kate’s ideas matched our ideas of what we wanted our home to become and she allowed for several changes along the way – and seemed pretty unflappable at our requests – and there were quite a few!”
