The  Viking architect that designs more than Longhouses
Made on a Mac

Design Lines Architects is a family based architects practice located in Cullercoats, Tyne and Wear, run by architect Steven Lines RIBA and administrator Christine Lines.

The practice was first established in 1995, but with changing market places and workload the practice was incorporated in 2006.

We have experience in designing most building types including industrial, commercial, speculative housing, one off new houses, and domestic alterations.

In this latter we are somewhat unique, being one of very few chartered architects practices that undertake small scale domestic alterations.

As a small practice all our clients get one to one attention, and considering that all of the architecture is handled by Steven all of our clients can be assured that all aspects of their project is undertaken by a qualified architect, from the first meeting to the last line on the drawings.

We specialise in housing, both domestic and speculative development, but we undertake all types of work.

As we work from home our overheads are low and we can therefore be very competitive on fees. Wherever possible we prefer to work for a fixed fee rather than rely on percentage of costs which can vary.

Our hobby of Viking reenactment, and our involvement with period timber buildings has led to the nickname of the Viking Architects. As many of our contacts know us because of this we have actively used the name.
