Testimonials Private Client, Location withheld: "Thanks to Neil we now live in a stunning modern house that lives up to the beauty of its garden setting. Neil combines creative vision with practical experience and also manages to achieve a great balance between listening and leading on design. He helped us make a decision on our builder, and then became an active partner in the three way relationship (builder/architect/client) which oversaw the build itself. As our new house began to emerge from the ground, he was available on site to help us make decisions on the many small but critical details, and was flexible and happy to adapt his ideas where our needs changed. We'd have no reservations in recommending Neil and are delighted with the end result."
