@ The Drawing Board

@ the drawing board is an architectural practice providing services for small building projects in Suffolk and Norfolk. Our clients are mostly householders and small businesses.

The practice was formed in 2000 by Miles Steeden who has lived in Suffolk for the last 30 years and studied Architecture gaining a BA Arch. at Greenwich University.

Having worked in architectural practice for over 25 years with a number of local Architects on numerous projects ranging from small domestic extensions to modern industrial units and a private hospital in Bury St Edmunds, it became clear there was a need for a small practice to give help and advice to householders and small businesses to extend and improve their properties.

With Planning and Building Regulation legislation becoming increasingly more complex we are experienced in preparing Design and Working Drawings, we carry out the task of form filling and negotiations with Local Authorities to turn your ideas into reality.
