Testimonials

I have worked with Stuart Paine over the last 8 years and during that time we have collaborated on three new build eco houses from feasibility, design through to completion including project management. We have also worked together on renovation projects including listed buildings.

Stuart and HAPA have proved to be capable in operating under dramatically different guidelines and on every occasion have delivered a solution that is unique and in line with my brief.   In terms of quality of work, timeliness and cost management I could not recommend them more highly and any unforeseen circumstances have always been mitigated by innovative solutions which have demonstrated their architectural design competence.  I could not recommend them highly enough. – Louise
