Architects you can trust

Customer Reviews

P N Woollacott

Throughout history, the relationship between architect and client has always been fraught with problems - clashes of ideas or unrealistic expectations (on both sides) being prominent, but also differences of view as to whom is in charge. We did not experience any such problems with Cutler Architects. We knew the kind of thing we wanted but we lacked the skills and ideas to translate them into a reality. Cutler Architects absorbed our ideas and came back with solutions, but they were not inflexible if we didn't like one detail or another. They were also good at another aspect of an architect, which is to manage liaison with the builder. In fact our only real complaint was that they do get busy because clients obviously like them.

Cutler Architects are a first class architectural practice. Work has just begun on an extension to my listed house in a village conservation area and I have been so grateful to Richard for his considered and sensitive design for this, reflecting the proportions and style of the original cottage, which enabled the plans to be passed without problem by the planning and conservation office. He and his team have been extremely helpful throughout the process, advising, suggesting and liaising on my behalf with the local authority over the many unexpected side issues that have been raised, like bats, sewers and trees. Everything has been executed professionally and speedily and they have just been excellent at keeping me informed and reassured at all times. They are a great team offering a great service - I am so pleased that I chose them and would strongly recommend them.

We selected Richard to design and build our family home, with the practices clear passion for Arts and Crafts, I believe this passion has given us a unique home. The whole experience start to finish has been a masterclass, Richard expertly guided us through the design process and oversaw the build itself to ensure his vision was executed! Visitors to the house are always surprised this is a new build. And ten years on, there are parts of the house that still take our breath away and other parts that “work” really hard. Thank you Richard and team.

Having received a recommendation from a friend, I have been using the services of Cutler Architects for a period of in excess of 15 years. They have assisted me on both residential and commercial developments of varying sizes. Richard is thoughtful, considerate and a very easy man to deal with who is brimming with good suggestions and his depth of knowledge is second to none. The office is managed in an exemplary manner by Sue, who leaves no stone unturned and is highly efficient and effective. Richard's right hand man, Mohammed is great and has been very accommodating in Richard's absence. This firm understand what it is you want to achieve and the best way to go about doing it. We will continue using them for as long as we keep having building projects as we trust and respect them.

Richard's attention to detail is simply astonishing and his confident approach helps the client to overcome any diversions from simple,functional,elegant design. Thanks to his small,knowledgeable team there is always someone to talk to in the office.Richard works closely with the builder to ensure a calm, workable solution to any difficulties as the build progresses. The end result is a delightful space to live in and exactly the home we needed.Over 5 years,whenever I have told someone I live at Woodsmoke, their face lights up,"oh that lovely house in Benson". The design is timeless.

New to the area I looked at the website of Cutler Arch and spoke to the boss. I explained our need (having just bought a property in the area which required substantial renovation). That conversation in itself transformed our worries into hope and ultimately led to completion of a very successful contract. Throughout the process we were challenged to think outside our comfort zone, not having done this before, and were so thrilled we followed advice on practically all suggestions. The team were assembled in very acceptable timeframe and the contract proceeded in a timely manner with attention to detail and communication with ourselves at the highest level at all times. As in any contract when problems occurred they were dealt with very effectively in a friendly and efficient way. The bonus to us was that we also acquired a good friend at the end of the day.

Richard helped to select the right builder to run the project. He managed and controlled the project well, worked well with the building team, performed regular site visits, gave sound advice and carried out thorough checks that all the work had been performed to a high standard. All problems and extras were dealt with in an efficient and professional way. Richard's advice always took into account the Edwardian age of our home and our wish to preserve its character. An excellent service that I will use again.
