Testimonials

Feedback and Praise from our satisfied clients

 

“The more time we spend in Hodgson Hall, and the more visitors who see it, the louder the applause for what is universally regarded as a fabulous addition to our teaching facilities. We are very grateful indeed to Adrian James Architects for the work that you have done in interpreting our vision and delivering it to such a high specification. The building complements the best of the architecture on the school site. The building blends well but is also innovative and modern, encouraging us to look forward rather than backwards. The fact that the project was completed on time and to budget, with minimum fuss, is also a significant tribute.”

“The house is a joy to live in, I feel like I’m on holiday every day with so much sky and light.”

“Working with the team at Adrian James Architects was an incredibly positive experience. Their inspired design work has created a public building which is beautiful and practical in equal measure. Throughout the design and construction, they listened and consulted well, were fastidious in attention to detail, and solved problems imaginatively. They were always a pleasure to work with.”

“I wanted to drop you a note to say thank you for designing such a spectacular and perfect house. I keep looking at it from the garden and marvelling at how amazing it looks. And inside every room works as it should and the space you have created is just perfect.”

“The dust is beginning to settle here after our move in and we are beginning to find our way around our fabulous new premises!   I can hardly believe that we have managed to go from where we were in December of last year to where we are now... in my inexperienced view, it is nothing short of miraculous. From my perspective, a wonderful job has been done. It is absolutely fabulous to be here! Warmest congratulations to all of you and your team who actually made it happen: I have the utmost respect for all of you.”

“Building your own house is both exciting and challenging; having an architect of Adrian James's calibre with us was a huge privilege. Not only did Adrian design a magnificent house which was wholly within the brief and yet wholly beyond expectation, he also successfully navigated the planning process with a rigorous approach backed up with a strategy and knowledge. From planning to completion, Adrian and his team provided excellent support down to every detail and I consider myself both lucky to have found him and honoured to have created such a phenomenal house with him.”

“Adrian James and his team have interpreted our requirements beautifully…The layout has been carefully thought out and they have managed to incorporate all the aspects we were looking for whilst adding some subtle but striking design features. Their attention to detail has been very impressive and we are convinced that without their help and experience we would not have managed to get planning permission for this sensitive site on the edge of the Oxford Green Belt. ”

“I’ve worked with AJA on a number of projects over the last 6 years, from a small boutique clinic to a large mixed use headquarters building, I have always been impressed by the quality of their work and advice and look forward to continuing to partner with them on future projects both here in the UK and overseas.”
 - Commercial client

“We appointed AJA because we believed they would be very easy to work with and would be able to use their skills and creativity to transform our dream of a unique family dwelling into a reality. We have been proved right on both counts. We have an excellent rapport and relationship with Adrian and his team. They work well with our Project Manager and other advisors and have always been very receptive to suggestions from others involved in the construction as well as from us. AJA have been with us on the entire journey from concept, through planning permission and detailed design, and ultimately to construction and completion. The road, inevitably for a project of this nature, has had a few bumps along the way (don’t mention the bats in the old house we demolished!) but AJA have been a really great partner to have with us on this journey.”
 - Domestic client

“When we ran a competition for an ultra-modern house, AJA came up with 4 designs, 3 of which were great. We chose the most stunning and now the building is finished, it is not only beautiful to look at, but also a pleasure to live in.”
 - Domestic client

“I found AJA to be very professional and accommodating and certainly rose and met our planning appeal challenge which provided a very successful outcome. Would have no hesitation in recommending your services and hope that we may work together in the future.”

“Thank you for my beautiful house. You achieved far more than I expected with the internal design concept. Good job your name began with the letter ‘A’.”
