  • Single story extension & layout change design

    We employed Olga to design a new rear extension, as part of a full renovation of a Victorian terrace. We wanted an extension that created as much new living space as possible, focused spend in specific areas and was different to the standard 3x3m box extension. We were nervous as we’ve never attempted anything like this before and didn’t know where to start. We chose Olga over other architects as she was a great communicator in her initial responses, she reassured us she would help us through the process as well as designing the extension, she listened to our requirements and showed real creativity when we first met. Having now worked closely with her we can confirm our initial impressions were right. She has been great. The design is beyond our initial expectations and it’s been a collaborative process where she's listened to our feedback and adjusted items accordingly. She has also helped us through each stage of the design, providing guidance on structural engineers, buildings inspectors, contractors, suppliers etc as well as navigating what was a tricky planning process. Everyone we’ve worked with has commented on the detail of her drawings and the quality of the design. The detailed schedule of works produced has made it easier to compare contractor quotes and make choices on the final design/finishes to get us closer to our budget. She has demonstrated real passion for our project and a genuine desire to make an incredible living space for our family.

  • Removal of walls and extension plus loft conversion

    Olga has done a tremendous job for me. She has provided a professional approach in everything required and although not the cheapest quote, I felt I was still getting value for money. All plans were very detailed and she provided help in obtaining planning permission, an approved inspector (as opposed to council) which has proved t be a good decision and a structural engineer. Her communication was excellent and always gave a prompt response to any of my questions. My builder remarked how good her plans were to work from. I would thoroughly recommend Olga if your looking for that personal touch and some great design ideas. Thank you Olga.
