We were introduced to Gary by an old architect friend who had designed our last house. We had a plot on which we want to build a 5 bedroom house of substantial proportion.
We gave Gary an outline specification but with a blank canvas so far as the design. What Gary first produced was fantastic, innovative, very contemporary but not quite large enough. After a few iterations and it is fair to say challenges, we arrived at a design which suited our requirements perfectly and is where we are very happily living today.
What made this achievable was the professional way Gary’s team took time to understand our requirements and their attention to detail and drawings are second to none. We were made to feel part of the design process from day one. It became apparent early on that the team has a vast mix of skills providing strong support to both us and Gary though out the process.
That we could “virtually”walk through the house at every stage was incredible and the drawings and technical expertise of the team made the job of our builder (like Gary and his team a perfectionist) so much easier. That our builder has retained Gary on a number of projects subsequently speaks volumes.
Communication is of course vital in any project and we couldn’t fault the whole team throughout the design and eventual build. That the design was sympathetic to neighbours, environment and met all the expectations of the planners made the approval process straightforward.
We would have no hesitation using Gary Johns Architects in the future nor recommending them.
