About English Cross

English Cross offers a different architectural experience. From our offices in Newbury, Berkshire, our team of architects, project managers, builders, craftsmen and interior designers work together to design and build aspirational private residences for discerning clients.

Our clients recognise that their home is a valuable asset and wish to invest in the highest levels of professional support to achieve the very best outcome for their home extension or building project. Our unique turnkey design/build service draws on many years of professional experience, and balances imaginative architecture and interior and landscape design, with professional project management, sound financial administration, and quality construction and craftsmanship.

With one single, focused team working on each project, from concept to completion, we save our busy clients considerable time and worry, as well as expense. Early involvement of our in-house builders ensures our initial designs are based on technical expertise and sound construction principles. This ensures all our projects are value engineered and highly cost competitive and can be brought to site much quicker than projects going through the traditional competitive tendering route.

To ensure all our projects benefit from tried and tested products and the workmanship of the very best skilled craftsmen, we have established a reliable network of suppliers and specialists across West Berkshire. We also aim to continually improve build quality and efficiency by dedicating time to researching modern methods of construction and off site prefabrication such as SIPS and oak framing.

English Cross is committed to building homes that are sustainable as well as beautiful. We like to design buildings that are healthy to live in, kind to the planet and cost effective to run.

Our Services
English Cross aspires to create exceptional homes, seamlessly via one point of contact, with professionalism and discretion. Our extensive portfolio of professional services has been carefully developed to ensure that we deliver all aspects of a project from design and planning, to construction through to completion – allowing discerning clients to retain their focus on their businesses and lives, safe in the knowledge that their project is in expert hands.

  • 1. Your project
    Whether you want to sensitively renovate or bravely transform an existing building, or completely reimagine the way you live with an integrated extension or a contrasting contemporary structure, we can help you. As far as we are concerned, the more challenging the project, the better. Equally the earlier we can get involved, the better. We will happily visit prospective property purchases with you to advise on design, planning restrictions and cost forecasts.

    We can also help you with a new build project and welcome the opportunity to create bespoke, sustainable homes in contemporary or traditional designs. For clients with larger estates and property portfolios, we can provide strategic guidance - analysing development opportunities, establishing master plans and setting out planning road maps.

  • 2. Your home
    We don’t just design homes that complement the way you live. Our aim is to create an environment that truly enhances your life and the way you utilise your space. By bringing excellent architecture, landscape design and interior design together, we can capitalise on the true potential of your property. Let us transform your landscape as well as your interiors to create an exceptional home that is not only impressive on the outside, but truly stunning on the inside.

  • 3. Your peace of mind
    Once your design aspirations have been agreed on paper, our next job is to gain the consents that you will need. We have an excellent planning history with local authorities and by bringing in specialist consultants we can usually overcome the most challenging planning restrictions.

    We then apply all our professional expertise to seeing those designs through to reality within minimum timescales. By combining expert architectural detailing, quantity surveying and project management, with the services of in-house professional construction teams and an established network of trusted suppliers, we retain complete control of the process, working as a team, seamlessly and efficiently so that designs are realised with the best results.

    Our job is to save you time, expense and worry, connecting processes to provide all your project needs simply and efficiently via one point of contact. By applying rigorous in-house project management and cost control measures, our construction teams are fully supported, allowing them to focus on creating our excellent designs on site. Our architects, landscape and interior designers will monitor progress and provide the finishing touches that transform the property into your unique home.
