Our aim is to create architecture that has substance, beauty and is sustainable; an architecture that is considerate to its environment and local context and built to last. We believe architecture should be timeless and this is reflected in the forms and palette of materials used.

Liam kindly came out to see us for a consultation, and was extremely helpful. He gave an overview of his process and some suggestions of how we might proceed whilst showing us extensive samples of his very impressive work. I would have had no hesitation proceeding with Liam had our project been more befitting of his experience.

★★★★★

Liam is great, he was very open and honest throughout our consultation. He is very knowledgable and understood our project needs quickly.

★★★★★

Liam was fantastic in honestly answering my questions even though that meant he was probably not the right person for my project. He was really helpful in helping me to understand my requirements and to therefore progress further in my design and build process. Thank you

★★★★★

Liam is a true professional who is able to quickly asses the requirements of the owner and create something beyond their expectations. He is very experienced and handled the planning permission process with ease. He is incredibly organised and efficient and has been amazing to work with.

Living and dining space

★★★★★

When you hire a creative professional it is very difficult to know before hand wether it was a good choice or not especially when the subject of the design is so personal as your own home.
Liam has done a terrific job. We are really happy with the design and we loved the process.
What we learnt though is that the end design is just the tip of the iceberg of a more complex story. Liam conducts a very inclusive creative process and we really enjoyed the exchanging of ideas and the designs that all our conversations produced. We worked through so many options and Liam’s help (and patience) in deciding the final design has been invaluable.
On the technical side, Liam managed a complex and delicate planning application with tact and professionalism and the results have been beyond our expectations.
Of this process one regret remains: we have no more houses to design. For now.

We have been working with Liam since last year on our project. We went with Liam originally as we liked his personality, he is extremely knowledgable and we trusted him from the get go with our project. Our project expanded a lot from what we originally had planned and nothing was too much for Liam, he adapted to our needs and offered us his expertise in various areas. Liam is always on hand to speak with and he visited us a lot throughout the process. Communication is very important to him which we liked. We would not hesitate to recommend Liam for your project as we are very pleased we found him on Design for Me.

Rear/side extension

★★★★★

We have worked with Liam for our recent planning application for a large single storey extension. From the first telephone call we had, Liam has been extremely helpful, honest and forthcoming with information. Being our first extension project we have hugely benefited from his experience and helpful nature. Liam completed our design and planning application, and this went straight through approval first time thanks to his excellent designs and drawings. Even now his “official” work has finished he continues to offer advice, and is clearly genuinely interested in our project as it progresses through the next stages. I can’t recommend Liam highly enough – he is very easy to work with on a professional and personal level.

Rear extension and loft conversion and internal refurbishment

★★★★★

We consulted with over 5 architects and Liam was clearly a cut above the rest…

From the onset, he provided us with hundreds of great ideas whilst sticking to the brief that we provided to him.

His vast knowledge and experience is apparent, from the small details to the wider picture (and helping us to stick within budget), we felt we were in safe hands with Liam.

On a personal level, we found him very likable and easy to work with – and this makes it so much easier, especially when it’s your own home!

We would not hesitate to engage Liam with any work we plan to do in the future.

Side fill extension

★★★★★

From the start he was everything we wanted from our architect. Enthusiastic and helpful. He’s personable and he offered layouts and designs we hadn’t even envisioned. He always kept me up to speed and advised on best procedures. We are the first house in our row of 4 in a conservation area to have been given planning approval for a side and rear extension (despite receiving objections!) and we are absoloutly thrilled. I would recommend Liam without hesitation.

I commissioned [Liam's studio] to design a new home on the site of my mother’s bungalow in Wimbledon Village and to help us secure planning permission in order to build our new home. I had an initial meeting with Head of Creative Design, Liam where we discussed ideas on a basic level, coming to the agreement that, because of the odd shape of the site – long and thin – a modern design would make best use of the available space. As a novelist and mother of three young children, I have very little time and after the initial brief I left the team at [Liam's Studio], led by Liam as Head of Creative Design, to design the building with no further input from myself. The design that they came back with was fantastic: a stunning, light modern white rendered house that made the best use of the limited site space available. My mother and I were happy to agree to proceed to planning with the initial design that they presented to us, with no alterations. Because the site is in a conservation area, we were concerned that it might prove difficult to get the project through planning. However [Liam's studio] worked very closely with our Planning Officer at every stage of the process, so that when it came to the decision meeting, she was firmly on our side, and despite some objections from surrounding residents who didn’t like the modern design of the building, planning was awarded. I cannot speak highly enough of the team at [Liam's studio], and in particular Liam. He is highly professional, a pleasure to work with and delivered a result – both in terms of building design and ease of planning approval – far in excess of our expectations.

I wanted to get planning permission to extend my mother’s existing old house at some date in the future, as it is a relatively small house located on a beautiful plot of land on the banks of the River Thames in Twickenham. I needed an architecture firm that could deal with the entire process as I do not live in London ; I found [Liam's studio] on the internet and had an excellent first meeting with Liam who I found very thoughtful and helpful with ideas and designs. Liam convinced me that rather than simply extending the  existing house it would be far better to demolish the dwelling and build a more spacious but better designed modern property on site. Liam and his team came up with a number of excellent designs to maximise space, light, and modern efficiencies on the site which enabled us to increase the living space by 50% and actually reduce both the height of the building and the built up footprint on the site. Liam also helped me deal with the neighbours’ concerns and was very understanding of my mother's sensitivity over the whole project. I was pleased with the way  Liam dealt with the planning permission process which was quite lengthy and complex, and involved a great number of external consultants who were required to convince the Richmond planning authorities of the benefits of the project. Designing a beautiful house is only a small part of the project, and it is vital to have an experienced team such as [Liam's studio] to take you through the planning process. Of course like all such projects, it took longer and was more costly than I envisaged, but I am very pleased with the end result which I think will make a unique family home for someone who wants to live in a large garden right on the banks of the River Thames.
