Featured Reviews for Swanage, Dorset Architects and Building Designers

“A friendly and professional practice - a pleasure to work with. Impressive timber frame design knowledge and excellent communication made this project an absolute joy - we hope to work with you again soon. So successful was this partnership that we've been jointly shortlisted for 'Best Oak Frame' at the Build It Awards 2014 - fingers crossed! Photo Credits: van Ellen + Sheryn”

“John took our ideas for a new kitchen extension and developed the plans and proposal so that we gained planning permission without any issues. John also attended the parish council planning meeting to ensure there were no issues at this stage. With his help and guidance a specification was developed from which we were able to have a number of contractors bid, going on to select one to complete the build. Although we knew exactly what we wanted out of this project we initially had trouble engaging builders before we started working with John, due to the unusual construction methods being used. With John’s expertise, advice and attention to detail on-board the project was completed and we have been enjoying the kitchen extension for the last six months.”

“Stuart Martin Architects completely remodelled and renovated an existing, rather tired and warren-like 1930s house into a beautiful, spacious family home in the Georgian style, finished April 2016. We were very involved in the project from start to finish, and found Stuart and his colleague Matthew Bakewell a great team to work with: detailed and creative, as you would expect, but also responsive, patient and always happy to discuss other ideas - be they driven by the interior or landscape designers, by us or by our building contractor, as the project progressed. The fact that they were a couple of hours' drive away did not prove to be an issue and we would recommend them whole-heartedly.”
Lex McMillan Architects Ltd

“We have hired Lex to be project architect on quite a number of projects over the last 10 or so years and are happy to recommend him. These projects have ranged from large scale house refurbishments through to smaller apartments and the projects have been run smoothly and professionally. The most recent projects have been a basement apartment on Lonsdale Road and a larger 5 storey demolition and refurbishment on Westbourne Grove (both W11). He is always very helpful during the planning and design process and available on site to talk through and resolve any problems during construction. His designs have been well thought out, creative and within the given budget. We would be happy to recommend his services to others seeking architectural assistance.”

“A wonderful design for my sons bedroom, carried out beautifully. He loves his bedroom, with the centre focus being blue & cars. A really easy going, flexible lady to work with. Highly recommended.”
PAD studio
Swanage, Dorset Architects and Building Designers
28 April 2015
“We attended a New Forest National Park Green Open Day showcasing sustainable buildings across the New Forest. We fell in love with two of the buildings and the architect of both buildings was PAD Studio. We have lived at Daisybank Cottage for 20 years and were passionate about renovating our Gardener’s Cottage which had coexisted with the main house since 1901. PAD helped us to stay true to the original structure, both in shape, form and materials. They sourced marley cladding similar to the original corrugated structure and ipe cladding similar to our forest surroundings. They opened our minds to new ideas and techniques whilst keeping us true to the original Arts & Crafts form of the original building. PAD guided us in the planning process, helped us with major decisions, externally and internally and travelled the journey with us, every step of the way. They have provided us with a gem, a small piece of paradise in the New Forest. Thank you. Cheryl & Ciaran Maher, Brockenhurst, The New Forest”

“‘The initial design captured the essence of what we wanted immediately and needed very few refinements. The vision our architect demonstrated in working with a very difficult, steeply sloping garden was remarkable and the end result is elegant and refined, delivering way more than we had hoped. The entire project was expertly handled and a joy to be a part of.’”

“I had an idea in my head of the extension I wanted for my house but no idea of how to organise anything to make it happen. Ralph was recommended by a friend and gently led me through the process. Ralph organised the surveyor, made lots of constructive suggestions, produced excellent drawings and very quickly secured planning permission for me. There was little for me to do except decide what design I wanted. Ralph Kent is a brilliant architect but it is all the product ideas he comes up with and his organising skills that get the job done.”

“Magnus took on our detailed list of requirements and delivered them within a building which exceeded our expectations both aesthetically and practically. He dealt with patience and forbearing with contractors who were not always familiar with what he sought to achieve, whilst providing reassurance to us, his clients. No detail of the finish was too small fto escape his, or his wonderful assistant Emma's, attention, and he delivered a distinctive building which we nevertheless regard as uniquely 'ours'. Charles and Pennie Denton”

“Natalie not only had the vision to create a unique design for our extension, she has been helpful in every way. She has an extensive repertoire of ideas which has helped us through. She has always been attentive & helpful with all issues of the project. She has always been there to listen to issues & help sort. We would highly recommend her.”
