What Our Clients Say

"AyeWood Ltd have been working with A:B Studio Architects for several years and, as many tradesmen will tell you, you are only as good as your last job. All Colin's jobs are carried out to the highest quality standard possible, he cares about what he does and the result is obvious in the finished result. Colin's rates are slightly less than the going rate but he gives you so much more than you would normally get for the going rate. He's a bargain and an undiscovered secret, until now...It does help, when you are doing building work if you actually give a **** in the first place and I can safely say Colin does that and much more. We stake our company's reputation on his work and sleep well at night."
Martin Roberts
"We have recently used the services of AB Architects and cannot recommend them highly enough. From the first telephone conversation right through to our final meeting, Colin was professional, interested and really listened to our requirements for our design. The quality of drawings provided and his attention to detail were first rate. I have no hesitation is providing a five star review."
"Colin was very helpful ,knowledgeable and understanding of all we wanted from our build project would not hesitate in recommending him or indeed asking him again ,We are both very satisfied."
