" After discussing our renovation project with Eoghain we knew we'd found the architect for us.

Eoghain listened carefully to our needs and desire for a more energy efficient home and has designed a living space which not only functions as we hoped it would but looks beautiful, feels fantastic and has reduced our fuel bill.

Throughout the project Eoghain had an excellent working relationship with the contractor. His attention to detail gave us confidence in the whole process.

The proof is that we would be happy to do it all again.

We have recommended Fiddes Architects to friends. "

Mrs Jane Diack

Having used Fiddes Architects for our previous home extension we had no hesitation in asking them to design our new build home. From start to finish we felt that they listened to our needs in terms of designing a home that would accommodate a busy family life, be energy efficient and meet our vision of our dream home. The close professional relationship between architect and contractor meant  that everything went extremely smoothly, even during a global pandemic! We are thrilled with our home and would highly recommend Fiddes architects

 

 

Mr Andrew Eggerton

" Working with Fiddes Architects was a great experience and made the planning of our renovation project feel very easy.


Detailed plans with some added creative advice meant we achieved exactly what we needed. "

Mrs Vikki Cleal

" I would like to say how happy I am with your design for the house. It was a tough assignment because you had to please two sets of clients from different generations, not an easy task. The outcome is great for us all.

 

I also appreciated your support during the build & help when some difficulties arose. I would be delighted to recommend your services to anyone if required"

Mrs Joss Goddard

 I certainly made a good choice when I asked Eoghain to design the extension and alteration to my old cottage.

I had not thought of a wooden design but when he produced a modern design in larch I could see how sympathetic this was to the existing grey granite structure .  I am absolutely thrilled with the result and it has been much admired by my family and friends.

 

We had many discussions before the final plan was agreed.  Eoghain listened to my needs and ideas which were incorporated into the final design.  Nothing was too much trouble and we had a very happy and pleasant working relationship.  Attention to detail was meticulous and all the building regulations were met without any adjustments.  I have gained a friend. "

Mrs Ann Blake

"I chose Fiddes Architects for the renovation of the Gate Lodge because I knew of Eoghain’s passion for his work and his desire to be proud of the end product. The conspicuous location of the building means that the public can judge for themselves but I suspect that like me they will say  ‘that’s very well done’.

 

I would not hesitate in recommending Fiddes Architects to any potential clients who are looking for a quality Architectural service" 

Mr Lawrence Ross

"Fiddes Architects were fantastic to work with from initial consultation to completion.

From the first meeting Eoghain listened carefully to our requirements and developed the ideas into plans for a beautiful home. Throughout the build Fiddes Architects provided essential guidance on the processes and technical requirements, as well as facilitating talks with contractors, making it easy for us to understand and every aspect and make good decisions along the way.
The service was delivered with not just professionalism, but personal interest that made us feel we were valued clients and our contract a priority.
It was such a positive experience working with Eoghain, I can’t recommend them highly enough." 

Mrs Claire Henning

Fantastic architectural design that we love. Great support & friendly service throughout. To put it simply, a can do attitude & very professional approach made working with Eoghain & Finlay an absolute pleasure. If we ever decide to build again ... we will be back. 

Mrs Maureen Jarvis

My wife and I have been absolutely delighted with the standard of service we have received from Fiddes Architects. The initial design of the building was done to blend into the rural setting and the material use of Larch and Corten have really enhanced this. The building is brand new although looks like it has been there for some time. Throughout the project , nothing has been too much trouble for Eoghain and Finlay and they have made regular site visits. They were extremely helpful when it came to contractor selection and have project managed extremely well in relation to Contactor and Sub Contractor engagement. I would be delighted to work with them on another project and would be delighted to provide any additional details. 

Mr Jim Hewson

"We instructed Fiddes Architects back in 2014 for a one storey extension to create a large family kitchen area. Could not have been happier with the job. They really listened to what we were looking for and suggested ideas we wouldn't have thought about. Great project management throughout from Eoghain, all trades coordinated seamlessly and building warrants all completed without hassle to ourselves. Great communication throughout and excellent contractors used. In a nutshell we would never use anyone else for any future works other than Fiddes Architects. Superb from start to finish."

Jill Sandilands 

"Eoghain and his team came highly recommended and looking at the finished project we are more than happy to add our names to the growing list of positive recommendations.

They listened closely to our requirements, came back with an excellent range of possibilities and finishings, several of which we hadn't previously considered and stayed on top of the build process throughout which was particularly challenging due to the ongoing Covid restrictions. 

The end result was stunning and somehow still manages to blend into the surroundings.

Their attention to detail was excellent and they seemed to enjoy the build process and take pride in the end result as much as us!"

Iain Adams 

"Fiddes Architects have been fantastic.  From understanding the brief right at the beginning to managing the whole process and delivering on time and to budget I could not fault them.

Communication was also excellent. Always had time to discuss issues and make recommendations without pushing or persuading. I felt it was my project but with all the support I needed when I needed it. The team work well together and it is clear that there is trust between architect and builder. I would thoroughly recommend them. My house is modern, efficient and thoroughly beautiful.

I love it ."
