An Ekkist Blueprint is an outline building typology, ready to be customised to your individual requirements. Ekkist’s range of Blueprint designs are available to purchase and adapt to your needs, working alongside our award-winning partner architectural practice, Studio McLeod.


Our Blueprints are designed for use by self-builders and developers wanting to use a core design as a basis for customisation. This can be a time-efficient and cost-effective way of designing your ideal home or building and working towards a planning application, typically saving between 2-3 months of design time and up to 75% of architects’ fees.  All our Blueprints have built-in design for well-being principles, supporting your health and well-being through every design decision, from air and water filtration systems to materials and lighting.

Designed to the highest environmental and well-being standards, our designs allow you to pursue certification such as Passivhaus and the WELL Building Standard, should you wish to.

Ekkist will provide you with Blueprint designs for a fixed fee, and subsequent design consultancy and project coordination on a capped monthly retainer for the duration of the project, depending on the level of input required. We work in partnership with an RIBA award-winning architectural practice, Studio McLeod to refine the designs to your requirements and specific to your site. We can apply for planning permission on your behalf, or work with a local architect to submit detailed planning using site-specific drawings.

Alternatively, we can work with your existing architectural or design team or assemble a bespoke team for you, providing step-by-step support to create a building to the highest environmental and well-being standards.
