  • "The Abode team had the talent to grow the kernel of an idea we had two years' ago, into a conceptual design that amazed us and subsequently into a reality that is beyond our wildest expectations. From our first meeting with Andrew, we knew they were the right architects to partner with us, and the results speak for themselves. We were particularly impressed with the skill and professionalism in getting our collective vision through the planning process - there were many complications and obstacle and they were able to overcome them all."

  • "We were delighted with the innovative design for an extension to our 1960s built house. The finished project has elicited a "wow" from everyone who sees it. We also greatly appreciated the support while the building work was being undertaken."

  • "Many, many thanks for all your efforts to achieve planning approval for our project.It is a milestone as you so rightly say and it is great to have a positive outcome after all the hard work and the long wait."

  • "Abode Architects were a pleasure to work with. Andrew’s vision for my redevelopment of my home pushed the boundaries and the 3D modelling really helped me visualise the space. Rosemary’s patience and expertise helped navigate the project through a tricky planning process as my house was listed. They helped turned my broken house into a bright, efficient and atmospheric home. I can’t thank them enough."

  • "Abode stood out from the other architects we met, as they gave us confidence in the level of creative design and technical detail needed."

  • "Greg's involvement in the design of, and planning application for, our extension made the whole process much easier despite the many hurdles placed in our way by the planning authority. He was very competent as well as being pleasant to deal with. We were absolutely delighted with the result."

  • " The service and attention we received from Andrew and Rosemary was exceptional as was their vision for our renovation. Their attention to detail was key to delivering our dream home and we couldn't be happier with the final results."

  • Many thanks for your enterprise and providing the catalyst for the project. Everyone is so impressed with the dormer windows and the transformation in providing two additional en-suite rooms and the overall end result of the accessible toilet.

  • “The team at Abode provided the important final touches for our overall idea of an extension incorporating a downstairs shower and utility room and made it a reality. Their help with planning, pricing the job and securing the right builder was invaluable and their attention to detail was impressive. Despite the necessary upheaval, the whole process was pretty much hassle and trouble free from beginning to end.”

  • "Abode designed our first extension and renovation back in 2011 – we loved the design which really made the most of the house and was perfect for what we needed at the time. We moved in 2017 and went straight to Abode to extend and completely redesign the internal layout – which turned out to be quite complex due to previous extension work. Andrew, Rosemary and the team came up with a great design and good solutions to some of the problems that they were presented with and again designed a house that was perfect for our evolving needs. And this time we also used them to manage the building process too, which we were very pleased with. We couldn’t recommend Abode highly enough."
