We chose Seth to design our extension as his ideas for the space were extremely impressive. We had other Architects round and all they wanted to do was design a standard box. With Seth we had the confidence that we could get so much more. He explored various options for the design trying to give us unique details that would make our property standout. Some of his design included exposed ceilings, angled glazing, alternative options on cladding, exposed beams etc. it was a design process where he was stretching the boundaries, but not to an extent that it would be un-affordable.
We managed to get planning approval with our first application (many designers had told us planning would be tricky due to the size of the extension) which is testament to the way it was designed & put forward to the planning department.
We have been very impressed with Seth & would definitely recommend him'.
 Mr D. Keane, Harpenden

'Seth worked closely with us to transform our ideas into a workable plan. He then efficiently managed the project from builder selection and JCT contract sign-off, through to oversight and monitoring of the build. Throughout the process he was responsive to our queries and agreeable nature greatly helped in smoothing over the inevitable bumps in the process. Overall I would highly recommend him.'  Mr W.Manfield, Clapham

'We worked with Seth to design our forever family home. We had a clear vision of what we wanted from the space internally, but wanted an architect with design flair to really give it the 'wow' factor and bring our vision to life, whilst getting it through the planning process. Seth came up with a few options, and we liaised closely to agree on our final design, which we love! Seth then managed everything closely with the planning office to submit our application and make a few requested amends so that our planning permission was granted approval first time round. Thanks so much Seth for helping our dream home become a reality.'  Mr & Mrs McNamee, St Albans
