 Simon - single storey rear extension

Richard has been fantastic from start to finish and a pleasure to work with.  He took the brief and came back with a set of plans that were exactly what we wanted first time.  Highly recommended.


David - single storey rear extension with internal layout alterations 

We highly recommend Richard for any home improvement project.

This being our first home renovation and extension, there was a lot of unknown for us, but Richard has been extremely supportive, professional and insightful, helped us guide through the process from design, planning, application, to locate a reliable contractor for the build.

There was an obstacle in our wish to have the whole ground floor into one open area, but Richard came up with some cost effective solutions to reach our goal.  We are really looking forward to the completion of our build and things might not go as smoothly without the help of MonkHouse Architect.


Gemma - side and front single storey extension

Richard has been absolutely fabulous throughout my extension planning.  He is very flexible, approachable and comes up with fantastic ideas that I would never have thought of.  He is so friendly and helpful and has a modern approach.  I was really impressed when I received plans that I could download on my computer and virtually walk around the extension!  All of this for a reasonable price.  I would highly recommend.

 andy - loft conversion

We used MonkHouse Architect for our recent loft conversion.

After working with Richard at a local firm for a previous ground floor extension, we really wanted to work with him again and hunted him out.

He is extremely personable and is great to work with (unlike a number of other architects we approached for the work).  He has been extremely diligent, has great communication and complete command of all aspects of the work which makes discussions really enjoyable.


For our loft conversion he was really innovative to ensure that the most was made of the space and that the stairs impacted the space on the first floor the least.  The pictures are on his Facebook page and we could not be happier with the end product.

Could not recommend him highly enough!

 helen - two storey side extension & renovation

Our experience with MonkHouse Architect has been excellent - Richard has designed a two storey extension for our home in addition to some renovations to the already existing building.  He's successfully taken us through the rigmaroles of planning and been able to keep us on track throughout the whole process, which has been no mean feat!  Richard's experience, professionalism and insight has been invaluable and means we will shortly have a home that actually works for our family and how we want to live.  I would recommend MonkHouse Architect without hesitation.

mandy - rear single storey extension

Having worked with Richard I can say:

1. He delivered what we were after in spades, and then some

2. He is incredibly personable, thoughtful and gentlemanly

3. He made us feel valued and that our input was important

4. He kept us in the loop throughout the whole process, which meant that he would actually contact us to apologise for no contact and give a reason! (inevitable council and engineer stuff)

5. He came up with a set of plans that were exactly what we had asked him for and the added cherry on top was the whizzy computer generated 3D fly-through video.  


I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Richard.

David - first floor extension

We used MonkHouse Architects for our second storey extension.  We experienced a professional and efficient service, being consulted at every step.  In particular when queries came back from the planning office, MonkHouse Architects were tenacious in resolving them to our satisfaction.
