What Our Customers Say…

We owned a large detached house in a conservation area which we wanted to separate in to two semis. The first few architects we met were all for the idea but kept putting barriers in our way. Then by chance we met Richard. What a breath of fresh air. He visited our home, where we had an in-depth talk of what we wanted and immediately understood what we wanted to achieve. He spent a few hours taking all required measurements so that he could come up with suggestions and alternatives for the use of the available space.
We would highly recommend Richard to anyone seeking the services of an architect.

We asked Richard Andrews to draw up an initial design to extend our mid 1800s farmhouse. We were really impressed by how well Lewis and Antonella listened to us and understood our vision.
Lewis and Antonella supported us in selecting a builder and worked through the build to ensure things were kept on track. Throughout then were always helpful and approachable, willing to offer advice and support and help troubleshoot issues that came up.
We wouldn’t have our perfect, beautiful home without their visions, hard work and support. I can’t recommend them enough.

My dilemma was I needed an architect, artist and innovative thinker to put onto paper my idea to develop an underground events venue which also has to meet all the legislation criteria.
Discovering Richard Andrews has been like winning the jackpot. Nothing is too much trouble and the results are fantastic all made better because Richard is such a pleasure to work with.

I found RA Architects through a Google search I was immediately impressed by Richard’s professionalism and his ideas. He listened to how we wanted to use our extension and came back with a number of options to talk through.
Once we had agreed a design – they drew up the planning application, produced the tender documents and sourced a number of contractors for us to meet and submit a tender. 
Richard and Lewis visited at regular intervals to inspect the project, again taking away any stress.
Throughout the process RA Architects exceeded our expectations and I will use them again for any future projects I undertake.
