Major extension & redesign - "the art of the possible"
Major extension and redesign is now complete and we are exceptionally pleased with the outcome. We thank you for your original thinking.
Sometimes we think we know what we want but don’t have the knowledge/experience to know the art of the possible.
You listened to our requests but then presented other options for our consideration which made a significant contribution to the overall success of the project.
The whole process was well structured and operated smoothly.
Incredibly we suffered no stress, are still talking to all parties and are still married.
Home Architecture did a fantastic job completing the plans and technical design, right through to obtaining planning consent. We wanted a traditional build in keeping with our surrounding area, which Home Architecture took on board and carried out with great attention to detail, incorporating their flare into the design.
We would highly recommend Home Architecture, they are a friendly, professional company with a wealth of knowledge.
Looking forward to seeing the finished build results.
We decided to go with Home to design our double storey extension after looking at their past work and discussing in person what we had in mind. We knew they would bring a design eye to the project and not just design a bolt on box. From an early stage they showed us exciting ideas and through the visualisations and sketches we quickly bought into the design.
Home have also been very flexible with us and we have dropped by the office on more than a few occasions with questions and issues which they were always happy to help with.
If you want a design that will excite, entertain and be something that you are proud of I would highly recommend Home.
I have no hesitation in recommending Michael and his team at Home-Architecture.
The whole process from concept, through applying for planning permission, engaging with the structural engineer and providing the detailed construction drawings to present to the builder went very smoothly. At our first meeting, the various design stages, options, timescales and costs were explained patiently and clearly.
Initially, we had a pretty firm idea of the design and layout we wanted so weren't sure if we really needed the services of an architect/designer but now we are so glad that we did. When we met to review the concept drawings, Michael presented our design but also an alternative which we were delighted with. During the site visit the week before, he'd asked about our current and future use and from that had been able to suggest a much more effective design which also made better use of an existing under-utilised space.
The construction drawings are excellent and very detailed so we can be confident about what will be in the finished project. The 3D perspective drawings really helped us to get a feel for how it will all look when complete.
Home Architecture was recommended to us by a friend and I understand why!
We found Michael to be very responsive and engaged. Michael joined us on a house viewing we were looking to buy with the intention of extending. Michael was very committed, spending well over one hour considering our options before providing us with very detailed and realistic advice.
We would absolutely recommend contacting Michael if you are considering engaging an architect or architectural designer
I saw three other architects and designers at the beginning before I picked Home Architecture. We needed help (design, planning etc) for a two storey extension and internal rehash. We have a very quirky shaped boundary. So I wanted someone who understood our needs and budget. I went with Michael as no question was silly. He was very happy to guide us through. They were very professional. But spoke in a non technical way to us. Being complete extension beginners we didn't have a clue.
Their quote and information was incredibly clear. No hidden charges. We were guided through all the design, planning permission and building regs. More importantly they kept to every deadline too. Our build is due to start in March.
"Many thanks for the excellent service that you have provided to date. Both Helen and I are extremely pleased with the plans and the speed in which you turned them around. Again many thanks for an excellent service and will speak soon."
"We really love the design you have come up with, we thought you would do a great job for us and you really have"
"We would just like to thank you for the excellent work that you carried out for us and will keep you informed of any progress."
"I thought your latest rendering of the snug view looked rather good, especially with the real trees showing through!"
"Many thanks Michael, it's looking brilliant, Many thanks for the plans, we are very excited about them. Love it! I think you have incorporated everything to make it a very nice 4 bed home, it meets all the needs we have. Thank you!
"Thank you for all your help. We are extremely pleased with the results and looking forward to enjoying our extended home
Thanks again for all the work you have put in - I think we are there now.
