"We’ve been thrilled with the project. West Grove Architecture provided an excellent service achieving a design which was creative but also realistic and affordable. Amy was keen to take on board our feedback at every stage to ensure the design continued to align to our expectations. Obtaining planning permission for the build was seamless and hassle free. Amy was extremely helpful, thorough and responsive and turned everything around very quickly. The design responds really well to our brief and we have been so excited to see it come to life! We love living in our transformed home."
"As the initial survey report predicted, this has been a major project. It has seen the transformation of a 1920’s home in need of total and deep refurbishment into a modern, easy to run home. West Grove Architecture has integrated the practical and aesthetic very well whilst incorporating our requirements. It is all combined into excellent designs turned into reality: the space is light, airy and easy to manage, taking full advantage of the period location and garden spaces.
Amy progressed the project efficiently and effectively from design, through planning, the tendering process, build and decoration. She has provided additional project management when this was required. She has advised on obtaining specialist advice to ensure that the technical features are fully integrated into the project. The resulting highly insulated home, now including an air source heat pump and solar PVs, has achieved an 84% reduction in carbon footprint. We have been impressed by the thorough professionalism and friendliness of the service and are delighted with the result."
"Exceptional service from West Grove Architecture. With limited knowledge of planning and design we approached the company regarding a potential planning application. Within hours Amy was able to provide concise, reliable information on the planning situation and innovative future possibilities for a home and investment project. Her professional expertise made a daunting planning application far more straight forward than we’d anticipated, giving us clarity and a clear path going forward. Would highly recommend."
"We commissioned Amy to do some designs on storage spaces in our living room and boot room areas. She has a fantastic eye for design whilst also achieving truly practical spaces. We have had so many comments on the bookshelf which has become the centrepiece of our extension…. In fact the word bookshelf doesn’t begin to describe the unit she has designed!! The boot room space uses the perfect combination of open storage for easy access of footwear whilst hiding all our sports and other general equipment behind stunning ceiling height doors. The combination of painted wood and exposed natural wood in both pieces make them more than just storage areas. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Amy if you are looking for designs that maximise the practical use of areas in your home, whilst enhancing the beauty of your interior living space."
