What our clients say.
I enjoyed working with Michael on the redevelopment of Hill Cottage. He has proposed sensible modern solutions in a sensitive conservation area. Importantly he has listened to what my wife and I require and translated it into a practical and buildable project.
The Kings Arms
We appointed Oochitecture for the redevelopment of the Grade II listed Kings Arms. The property was purchased by us as a commercial development project with the intention of creating 3 high quality apartments for future rental and/or sales.
Michael has worked closely with us to develop the design from our initial project brief and has refined the design in dialogue with us and the Conservation officer. From initial concept sketches to developing the detailed plans we have enjoyed being taken through the design process. Oochitecture have advised us throughout the project on any requirements and the next steps. Where necessary they have appointed consultants for services such as Structural engineering, Asbestos R&D survey and SAP/EPC’s etc.
We have enjoyed working with Oochitecture and would recommend their services to others.
2B Quay Street
Oochitecture have been instructed on behalf of our client to provide concept and technical design services for an apartment conversion from unused retail space. They have undertaken planning and Building Regulation applications on our behalf.
Oochitecture have proven themselves to be extremely efficient and reasonably priced. We would not hesitate in recommending his services and they will certainly be our first call when such services are next required.
“We commissioned Michael to design a wraparound extension for our semi-detached home in Whitchurch, Cardiff. We wanted to create a space that was impressive from a form point of view, but also highly functional. Michael was friendly, methodical and thorough. He listened to our input throughout the design process and worked closely with our builder when it came to turning the dream into reality. We would highly recommend Michael, and, hopefully, will get to work with him again on a new project in the future.”
“We met with a few architects, many who made the job seem complicated and difficult but from the first meeting, Mike was full of great ideas, experience and a reassuring, can do attitude. No challenges were too hard and there was never an issue calling up to get help with the regular stumbling blocks. We had nothing but compliments about the detailed plans he provided which helped immensely when obtaining quotes.
Mike has been a real pleasure to deal with and we would highly recommend him. “
John & Sue Fudge
“We have worked with Mike on two home improvement projects, one roof conversion and one extension. Both times Mike has managed to take our somewhat vague ideas and create proposals that were exactly what we wanted. His ambition to create developments that both work, look good and blend with the existing is invaluable and we would definitely use him again for any future projects we may plan.”
Mark & Isla Holmes
“Mike has an intuitive quality that was evident when discussing our requirements for the extension and refurbishment to our family home. His attention to detail, experience and enthusiasm has mean’t we have a design that fully optimises our living space, provides functional accommodation for our disabled son whilst retaining a modern contemporary feel.”
“Would 100% recommend to anyone looking for an architect. Mike was extremely professional and responded promptly on all occasion. He was happy to listen to our ideas while providing his professional advice to help us design a space that has transformed our house into our family home.”
