“David was outstanding. He brought our original brief to life with excellent and innovative new ideas. He provided comprehensive drawings that the contractors could easily work with, and he built a very good relationship with them as he managed the project. He was always available if problems arose and delivered the project on time and on budget. We have no hesitation in recommending him, and would certainly commission him again if we had a further project".

"We worked with David on a complex home renovation project, which included improving accessibility and reducing carbon footprint.  David is great to work with, he is a good listener, adapts and includes ideas, while keeping a clear idea on what he can add that will delight in the final build.  He was available when needed, reassuring and gave good advice, staying calm during the inevitable unexpected discoveries.  His contribution was invaluable, and we would not have achieved the result without him."

"We commissioned David to design our loft conversion because we were specifically looking for something a little more bespoke, not a generic turnkey design available from the raft of loft conversion companies. 

 

David is a brilliant architect, awash with ideas, his understanding of space and light has maximised its potential. The finished loft is far better than we could have ever hoped for, it’s a truly spectacular space.

 

It was a real pleasure working with David, he was open to ideas and discussion, and always had more value and insight to add to the project. We have recommended David to a number of friends,  and we would welcome the opportunity to work with him again in the future."

My house was a traditional Edwardian semi which I wanted to bring up to date by turning three small rooms at the rear into a large modern living space with bi-fold doors opening on to the garden. After talking schemes through with several architects, I felt very comfortable appointing David on what was always going to be a challenging project involving large RSJ’s spanning the entire width of the property.

 

David designed a great space and oversaw the project professionally from start to finish — liaising with planning authorities, the building contractor and a structural engineer. He went more than the extra mile in seeing the project through and I am delighted with the end result.  I highly recommend him and would definitely use him again.
