From the onset Stuart Paine listened and understood my brief. We collaborated fully from feasibility design, through to completion of the house including project management. He incorporated my initial thoughts whilst adding design details I hadn’t even contemplated which enhanced my ideas and made the best possible use of the plot and surrounding area. Throughout this process he listened to any concerns I had and sought to find a solution that satisfied me as a client, the budget and the builder, whilst keeping an integrity of design, not always easy. Throughout this process he navigated problems out of our control, for example covid, calmly and practically. In terms of quality of work, timeliness and cost management I could not recommend him more highly. Unforeseen circumstances have always been mitigated by innovative solutions which have demonstrated his architectural design competence. I am absolutely delighted with the outcome.
