As the founder of my practice I provide a single point of contact, from initial meeting through to concept design, submitting your planning & building regulations applications until your project is on site. I love working on interesting projects where I can make a difference to the design, and resolving those difficult challenges that help to make the project just right.

Martin was commissioned to produce the technical drawings for our substantial home redevelopment. The work was completed to the highest standard with every detail in our brief being incorporated in the final design. The drawings were positively supported by the planners; the quality of the design was specifically highlighted in their report. His experience gained in commercial architecture showed, the final detailed drawings were created with such a high level of detail, the tendering process progressed in a very efficient manner. The construction companies involved commended the detail, which enabled them to confidently provide accurate quotes without excessive contingency in the costings. We would not hesitate to recommend Martin's practice, they did a fabulous job.”
Martin's practice designed the extension to our new home. Martin listened to our requirements and suggested a number of different options, explaining possible problems and radical alternative solutions that we hadn’t thought of before providing a couple of concept designs. We picked the design we liked best and fine tuned it with Martin before he submitted the planning and building regulation applications which were approved without any problems. Martin service was very professional and he produced an interesting design that we think will be perfect for us.
Before I started this project I approached a number of architects for ideas and costs. I issued a brief, which was to update and extend a 1930s bungalow to double the size and to incorporate modern features while still retaining the look of the original bungalow from the front and Martin was the only one to follow the brief and come up with ideas to vastly improve it, and also his costs were the most competitive. Martin has worked with me from day one right through to completion and we are thoroughly delighted with the result. Nothing has been too much trouble for Martin and I would recommend him to anyone.
