I have worked with Claire on a number of development projects since 2014, and I have found her to be both proactive and pragmatic. During this time, it has usually been in the capacity of a planning surveyor to architect, but also, more recently, as a client to architect.
Whilst architecture is sometimes difficult to convey to the public, Claire has an ability to forward a vision in a simplistic and understanding manner. With her grasp of both drawing and presentation, it fully informs the client or third party allowing positive and meaningful progress.
Client and Director of Patrick Durr Associates
The relationship between a builder and architect is extremely important, and from our perspective as builders, the most valued characteristics in an architect is a considered, collaborative and most important of all, practical approach to design. Claire is exactly this kind of architect – she puts her clients and construction partners at ease and always finds the perfect balance between brilliant architectural flair and practical, clever design. We loved working with Claire, and very much hope to again.

Claire has done such a wonderful job developing our loft conversion plans. We really felt listened to throughout the whole process, and valued Claire’s creativity, patience and attention to detail.
We can’t recommend Claire highly enough.
Sarah and Dr Nick Hamilton,
For us, investing in an architect was a big commitment, so we spoke to a few practices and, following our introductory call, we quickly appointed Claire to get us through planning.
From the very beginning, Claire was incredibly thorough and ensured we understood the process fully. We had a few ideas of what we wanted to achieve and Claire worked with us to bring them to life.
