Can you recommend an architect?(12 Posts)
We are looking to do our loft (and possibly kitchen too). Can anyone recommend an architect who works in SW London?? Thanks!
Hi - I can recommend the firm Thomas & Spiers who are based in SE17 and do a lot of work in SE and SW London.
I'll fess up that the "Spiers" part of it is my husband, Christophe, so I am somewhat biased, but they have plenty of clients who can talk to you if you would like.
You can see some of their work here:
(The picture above is of a kitchen extension, and the client also had a loft done)
And this is their website: www.thomasandspiers.com/
Hope this is helpful!
We used Robin Arthur to do our kitchen and loft conversion. They provide a good basic service and are competitive on price.
The builders they recommended to us were good.
I can highly recommend Fredrik Rissom, R2 Studio Architects. He has just completed a front and back extension for my house in East Dutwich. He is very reliable and hard work. He perfectly understood what we wanted and turn our wishes into reality. Can only recommend him highly.

I can definitely recommend Thomas de Cruz, based in Chiswick. Their web site is: http://thomasdecruz.com/
Hi - I might be able to help you. I am an RIBA registered architect based in North Kingston. I have over 10 years experience and client references on my website www.sophiebates.com. I would be more than happy to come and meet you. I offer a highly professional service and can also not just provide you with ideas and drawings for permissions but help with selection of builders and running of the project on site if you require. I can also offer interior design for kitchens, bathrooms,lighting and any joinery. My phone number is 07725 501683 or email email@example.com - please let me know if I can be of any help.

Hi - not sure if you found anyone yet. But if you're still looking, I can highly recommend the architect we're currently using - David Burgess, from Burgess Mean Architects, who's helping us with the extension of our house (loft, side, internal structural alterations).
David was recommended to us as someone with a very good eye for design, very professional, done lots of work in Wandsworth, even my father-in-law who is an architect in another country was full of praise for David's design for our house (and he's a very difficult man to please :-)).
I can dis-recommend one though:
James Doddrell. Do avoid him or you will be paying twice what he estimates (so a few thousand pounds more), and you will be doing most of the planning permission work yourself!
I would personally recommend KLC Architects in West London. Tonnes of experience not just with design & drawing up plans but liasing with the council and building control afterwards. Basically, the service and communication was 10 out of 10 from start to finish...no pressure on my part as they dealt with it all! Professionals with experience and aftercare. 10 out of 10!
Dyer Grimes based in Wandsworth...

I would personally recommend AS Architects in Clapham. They helped us with design & drawing up plans and liasing with the council and building control afterwards. Basically, the service and communication was 10 out of 10 from start to finish...no pressure on my part as they dealt with it all! Professionals with experience and aftercare. 10 out of 10!
