When we were looking to sort out some existing issues with our house and add an extension we didn't really have a clue where to start. We met with several architects but as soon as we met Zoe we realised there wasn't any other choice for us. She was very easy to talk to and listened to what we wanted, suggesting changes and options without being dictatorial.
She lead us through the process clearly and answered any questions we had about the build in a way that we understood. She allayed our fears about the bureaucracy of the process and she was always a pleasure to have visit the site.
Her recommendations on builders, materials etc were great and we honestly wouldn't have been able to do this without her.
We are currently working again with Zoe to add additional space to the second floor of the house and I would recommend her and her team to anyone looking to extend their home. More...
“We used Zoe as the architect for a large extension that was really a complete reorganisation of our house. From the off, we really took to Zoe. She immediately got us and what we were trying to achieve, coming up with ideas that we simply had not seen but then working with us through several sympathetic iterations until we got the design that was best for us. The plans that Zoe produced were very easy for us to understand and they worked well for our builders. Zoe helped us manage the building application process that also went smoothly. In summary, we were very pleased with Zoe and the service that she provided to us. We would definitely use her again.” More...
After meetings with a couple of potential alternative Architects, and a certain amount of frustration with the level of feedback to our ideas or alternative suggestions, meeting Zoe was a breath of fresh ari.
From the first moments of our conversation it was clear that she had an appreciation for our existing house, and quickly came to understand what we wanted to achieve. However, she wasn't shy in suggesting alternatives based upon her experience, and her vision to fundamentally change the layout of the house is one we followed, and we're very glad that we did.
As well as helping to deliver an end result that we're hugely proud of, Zoe and her team were a pleasure to deal with throughout the process. I'd have no hesitation at all in recommending ZLA to friends or family. More...
