Architects near me: ten reasons clients love our Leeds architects

View all news

Searching for the perfect ‘architects near me’ to design a home project takes up considerable time.

From pricing to professionalism, and timeframes to transparency, there’s a lot to think about.

Here are ten reasons clients gave us top ratings in their reviews.

We listen to your needs

Just because we’re the architects, it doesn’t mean your new build, extension or commercial project is ours.

It’s yours, and throughout the process, our approach is to always listen to what your exact requirements are – then deliver them.

As David said in his review:

“Our project was to turn a tired 1970s bungalow into a house for modern living and to see us through the next 20 or so years.
“We’ve used architects before: some listen to what the client wants but offer little in terms of advice and innovation, some don’t listen and just do what they want!

“James and his colleagues took our brief and enhanced it just as we hoped.
“We have achieved amazing amounts of extra space and at all times Studio J listened, advised and encouraged.”

Timeframes are important to us

Having renovation work or a property modernisation completed often requires a compromise over your living arrangements.

So it’s crucial to stick to the agreed timeframes and get you back in your new or improved home, as fast as possible.

“James returned the completed plans within the agreed time frame and despite a few tweaks and amendments, we were blown away”, said Kelvin in his review.
“James had paid attention to our requirements and taste and also added features that we would not have thought of.
“He is knowledgeable and professional and not only did he deliver what we asked for, he exceeded our expectations.

‘Architects near me pricing’

You may already have Googled the phrase.

That’s because no matter how big the budget, value for money matters to every client. Just as much as the vision.

While all of our prices are bespoke, we also make sure there are no hidden costs, starting by providing an initial consultation and quote.

As Tristan said in his review: “Initial site visits, measuring up, drawings and discussions were undertaken quickly by his friendly team and James has been very attentive in finalising plans we’re happy with despite a handful of changes/talks.
“We particularly liked that fees were fixed in sensible stages at a competitive rate.”
