Concept Drawings

Looking To Increase Your HMO Rental Income?

Maximise Your Available Space With Creative Concept Drawings

If you’re looking to Maximise your HMO Rental Income and Valuation, you need an efficient and well-optimised layout.

Whatever kind of property it may be, a church, pub, theatre, police station, nightclub, or single-family to HMO or Flat conversion.

You’ll need to explore creative design changes to the layout to maximise the income, keep tenants happy and comply with local regulations.

You’ll also need to include these in your planning application.

Concept Drawings help you answer important questions like:

  • What would my property layout look like with a Dormer Loft Conversion?
  • Is there enough communal space for my tenants, or do I need an extension?


Our expert team can take care of the full HMO development journey for you, from conceptplanning & building control, through to construction. 

HMO Architect offers design consultation calls, existing drawings, full-planning applications, and other services to help you every step of the way. We complete all projects to the highest quality to suit your needs and ideas.

The Solution?- Creative Concept Drawings

Concept Drawings - How It Works


Step 1:

We first ensure we’ve got the Measured Survey and Existing Drawings of your property. 

Step 2:

Using the existing drawings as a base point we speak with you to understand your investment goals and ideal tenant profile. 

We explore other high end HMOs or properties in the local area for inspiration. 

We also consider all local regulations and restrictions like Article 4 and minimum space requirements. 

Step 3:

We go through an iterative feedback session with you to ensure the Concept Drawings meet your vision for rental income and tenant space requirements.

"I'm so happy with Giovanni Patania for helping me get planning with my nightclub to HMO conversion project. He helped me navigate complex regulations to fit the maximum number of self-contained flats while also including space for a 7 Bed HMO. Thank you Gio"

HMO Concept Drawings - Top Questions

What Are Concept Drawings?

Concept Drawings are creative drawings that explore options to improve the existing layout of your property for maximum rental income, valuation and tenant comfort.

Why Do I Need Concept Drawings?

You need Concept Drawings if you’re looking to update the existing layout to maximise tenant comfort, rental income and valuation.

For example, if you’re looking to convert a single-family home or other complex developments like GP Surgery, Nightclub or Guest House into an HMO, you’ll need Creative Concept Drawings.


What’s Covered In Concept Drawings?

Concept Drawings cover the following:

  • Highly Detailed Concept Plans showing modifications to the existing layout of the property to suit your investment strategy and maximise rental income.
  • Front & Side Concept Elevations

Note – Having done over 150+ HMO Projects, we ensure the correct level of concept drawing detail required by the Local Authority for Planning Applications.


Is This A Paid Service?

 Yes, this is a paid service.

How Much Do The Concept Drawings Cost?

Concept Drawings start from £1,200 (ex. VAT) and vary depending on the type and complexity of the property.

How Long Do The Concept Drawings Take?

After the Existing Drawings are done, our Architects can get to work in their creative studios and begin the Concept Phase. It typically takes around 3 weeks to produce.

It’s an iterative feedback process; we don’t stop until you’re entirely happy.


When Should I Get The Concept Drawings Done?

We always recommend getting concept drawings once you’ve purchased the property and finished with the Measured Survey and Existing Drawings.
If you haven’t bought the property yet we highly recommend our HMO Design Appraisal Service where we help you evaluate the best design scheme based on the likelihood of Planning Success.

Do You Go On-Site To Do The Concept Drawings?

Yes, the Measured Survey which is carried out prior to the Drawings includes a site visit.
The Drawings themselves are done by our experienced architects in our creative design studios.

What Do I Need To Start The Concept Drawings? 

Well, to begin with, you need Accurate Measurements (via a Measured Survey) and Existing Drawings.
Once you have this, we’ll get to work in our studio and produce the Concept Drawings that best fit your investment and exit strategy while also keeping tenant comfort and local regulations in mind.

I was very impressed with Giovanni at WindsorPatania he was friendly and help explain the project to me in a way I could understand. Being a first time investor I really felt he was more like a partner in my team then an architect.

Exceptional service at all stages of the process from Windsor&Patania. They created a vision of a beautiful home from an under-developed heritage property. They led us through a tricky planning and renovation process with care and attention to detail. And then they followed up with quality assurance and spotting as the project was implemented. And they did all of that with a smile and approachability that you can’t find elsewhere. Strongly recommend for anyone looking to build real quality into their project!

Fantastic team, really helpful and great communication! I had a challenging project that another architects could not solve but the team at HMO were able to redesign and get planning approved in 6 months from start. I also appreciated that the directors have been investing themselves. Thanks again, highly recommend the team! James
