‘Carrie provides an excellent, friendly and cost effective service. We used her service  to decide if we could add a downstairs shower-room within our budget. Carrie listened carefully to our needs and own ideas, she then measured up and made some further suggestions. We ended up with not only a spacious shower-room but also a utility space and her budget estimate was very accurate. We would not hesitate in using her services again in the future or recommending her to friends.’ Betty & Mike, Netley Abbey.

‘Hampshire Architect’s consultation service is a really good way to explore possibilities for extending or renovating your home. Carolyn worked with us to understand our needs, suggest solutions and provided us with a raft of useful information that has certainly helped us set the ball rolling!’ Mr & Mrs Bell, Hamble.

‘We can’t thank you enough for the consultation today. Your ability to listen well, your knowledge of the industry and your attention to detail has resulted in preliminary sketches that we feel can help us realise our dream.’ Mr & Mrs Lawless, Horton Heath.

‘Thank you very much for your time yesterday evening and useful info pack, you have been extremely helpful and have given us lots to think about! A very useful and informative evening!’ Mr & Mrs Wong, Bassett.

‘Carolyn listened carefully and understood our project. The council’s requirements for planning and building regulation approval were explained and their particular relevance to our project. We discussed a number of designs and their implications, and finally drew up a sequential plan which would take our project through to completion. A friendly, informative hour very well spent.’ Mr & Mrs Holland, Netley Abbey.

‘We found Carolyn easy to work with and very approachable. She listened to what we wanted and ideas we had before providing two designs for us to think about. The Tablet based 3D model was very useful for visualising and understanding the relationships of the various elements of the design. The drawing pack was clear and easily understood; having started the building work, very few queries have arisen. We would highly recommend her.’  Neil & Claire, Drayton.

‘Carolyn was friendly, approachable and made a big effort to find out how we live as a family to try to understand our needs and wishes better. Thinking out of the box was great for us!  It was great; a 10 out of 10.’ Pete & Bea, Southampton.

‘We found Carolyn easy to work with, and felt that our ideas were listened to and incorporated in the design process. We found Hampshire Architect delivered a prompt, efficient and friendly service. The plans at all stages of the process were easy to understand, and not just by us but also by the local council planning committee, kitchen designers and the builders tendering, drawing especial comment by all groups.’ Peter & Alison, Bishop’s Waltham.

‘Carolyn is a professional and conscientious person and that was reflected in the work that she did for us. We would recommend Hampshire Architect to anyone in the future. 10 out of 10!’ Shyne & Kevin, Woking.

‘We give Hampshire Architect 10 out of 10 on all levels.’ Shaun & Amanda, Near Winchester.

‘Excellent advice, informative and thoughtful.  Thank you Carolyn’.  C&F Southampton
