“I write to thank you for your professional services. We have had many projects that we have required the services of an Architect.
From our initial appointment, (taking our brief of what we wanted from our property) you stood out from the previous architects used. You asked about our family time, storage lifestyle and priorities. It is rare that from this one meeting, the first draft of plans were perfect.
We are used to sitting with a pencil explaining why things would not work for our family. Rather than drawing what you would do with the property, you had truly listened to your brief, and designed a house beyond even our imagination.
The properties either side of ours had also been extended and I was concerned it would be easy to copy those plans. Eight One Two thought outside of the box, for example, repositioning the staircase to the middle of the house opening up various additional design elements. This has enabled the house to flow rather than be disjointed.
Your ideas have turned our house into our home.
In my profession I can safely say you are unique and have attention to the detail and brief. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to clients, friends or family.
Thank you once again.”

We interviewed three Architects practices and as the Architect in a previous practice (now Director of Eight One Two Architects) was already known to us. The previous practice was included in our short list. After discussions on our brief we selected Jonathans previous practice. Jonathan, a brilliant young Architect with the same vision and aspirations as ourselves. Jonathan was lead Architect from inception throught to completion. The design moved away from a traditional form of building.
Jonthan attended site meetings on a regular basis often after hours, checking work was progressing satisfactorily and sorting out minor issue with our builders regarding design and drawings etc. Since the house has been completed He has helped us with various projects for our development business, including potential site appraisal schemes including advise regarding potential planning issues. He has shown attention to design detail and accuracy with drawings, this helped make the whole building process straight forward for the client and builders. We are really pleased with our house, every room works just as we wanted, we can highly recommend his new practice, Eight One Two Architects, to any prospective developer or anyone wishing to undertake a Self-build project.”

“I am writing to thank you for all your hardwork, commitment and dedication in designing us a wonderful new single storey extension on our home.
We now have a home to be proud of, so thank you!
After our first meeting, we felt that you understood our brief, purpose and intention for the space we wished to create for ourselves and our young family. Throughout the process you listened, advised and guided us through the planning and building regulation procedure which we are most grateful for as creating a new structure was a first for us. Even once the plans had been passed you kept in contact and were keen to be updated on the progress, showing a passion for your craft and a dedication to the needs and satisfaction to us, your clients. I wouldn’t hesitate (and have done so already) in recommending your architectural work to anyone as your workmanship has brought our home into 21st century in which our young family now has a space that can be adaptable as they grow.
In the words of Winston Churchill , ‘We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us,”
Many, many thanks!”

“Eight One Two Architects came to see us about planning an extension at our semi-detached house. We had very clear ideas about what we wanted; Eight One Two Architects listened to these carefully and made suggestions to improve our ideas. The drawings were good value for money. They gave us a short timescale for the return of the drawings which was adhered to. When Eight One Two Architects brought the drawings back they were better than we had imagined. We talked through some minor changes and the final drawingss were quickly completed. We are extremely happy with the process.”
