Latest reviews

  • I require a chartered architect for tecnical drawings

    Carl of Shoreplans RIBA
    gave a clear and concise presentation of what he could offer in terms of fees and architectural drawings for an approved planning permission.
    I feel confident that he will put in all the hard work to bring it to a successful conclusion.

  • Architect for Loft Conversion/Home Renovations

    I had a really positive experience with Carl. He completed architectural designs for my home renovation works. Carl is obviously experienced and knowledgeable, completing the work to the expected levels quickly.

    Beyond his good work, what I really appreciated was Carl's professionalism and patience. He answered all my questions to fully and to the best of his ability, helping me to understand what felt like a really complex and foreign process. He is also creative, bringing additional options and ideas (which other architects did not). And even when we had a minor disagreement (partly my fault because of my misunderstanding with the process and the amount of work required), Carl was patient and clear, always staying professional, respectful, patient, and kind.

    If you're looking for an architect, I cannot recommend Carl enough.

    Thanks Carl.

  • Infill & back extension for terraced house

    Carl and his team got the plans done incorporating much feedback and we received planning permission promptly.

    Would definitely recommend & use again.
