I was , and continue to be thrilled with my extension which houses my new kitchen and dining room. From my very basic ideas Paul elevated the design to a whole new level, considering everything from the way we wanted to live in the space, the practical consideration in a kitchen (including the desired appliances) and the aesthetics both internally and externally.
Where I had started with a very practical extension, with Paul's design I ended up with a truly beautiful space. His input on everything from the roof design to the windows to the layout of the space and how it would blend with the existing structure was creative and practical.
‘My requirements for an architect and program manager are in no particular order
1. punctual and able to meet agreed deadlines
2. easy to work with
3. comes with ideas not just technical know how
4. able to empathise with my individual taste and choices
5. able to strike a good balance between program manager and supplier
Paul ticks all these boxes and is a joy to work with along with it.
Get him before he puts his prices up to where they should be’
‘Paul Reed was able to advise with confidence and delivered well
presented plan drawings and a meticulous campaign for the planners
‘Creative design ability and as a project manager, tenacious, driven and disciplined yet simultaneously diplomatic’
Paul is genuinely passionate about good design and function
and clearly loves his work. It's like being on "Grand Designs"
Paul drew up plans for some works we wanted doing on a listed building. I'm pretty sure he ended doing more work than he originally scoped due to the fussy council officials. The plans were approved of course.
Paul's approach to the project was very professional offering valuable advice. Paul's drawings arrived punctually and he helped us liaise with the planning officer and put our planning application in ,which was successful. His rates are very reasonable and comes highly recommended.
Paul reed offers a professional, first class service with a friendly personal touch. He is always willing to go the extra mile to help us out when needed. We thoroughly recommend Paul Reed for all architectural needs.
We worked closely with Paul to plan a sensitively designed extension to our kitchen in a very particular conservation area of Brighton. Paul’s knowledge of the local area and what would be acceptable was invaluable. He was also very adept at creating useful 3-D designs to allow better visualisation of the finished plans. I would recommend his services to anyone else.
Having purchased a 3 bedroom Victorian property in Portslade, East Sussex I decided that I wanted to add asingle storey extension to the back of the property. Paul produced the the drawings for me and made the planning application on my behalf, his expertise and experience in such matters meant that within 8 weeks I received full planning approval with no stipulations.
