My wife and I have worked with Absolute Architecture over two projects (major refurbishments of the ground floor and first floor of our country home) and we have started a third, bigger project for an extension. We have been impressed with their local knowledge (e.g., trades and suppliers) and presence, design flexibility and management/cost control. Above all, they have been professional and yet approachable, friendly and proactive in providing solutions and options. We have liked every contact and specialist they have introduced to us for our projects. Highly recommended!

Modern renovation revitalises the interiors of this Berkshire country home
This generously proportioned property was a little tired, but the homeowners had big plans to transform their country home.
Absolute Architecture worked with the owners over four phases of renovations and crafted designs and architecture plans to help them realise their goals. These four phases saw the transformation of the interiors, conversion of the loft space, as well as the build of a beautiful oak framed family room and gym with a spiral wine cellar.
Location: Undisclosed village in Berkshire
Materials: We installed a beautiful vintage oak parquet floor throughout the house to unify the rooms. Bathrooms were transformed with Jura grey limestone.
Clever aspects: Absolute Architecture were able to create a seamless and unifying colour palette that brought all elements of the project together.
Friends on the project: Key suppliers and contractors on this Berkshire home were:
- Hartwood Oak, who designed and installed the extension building.
- Albion Cellars, who installed the spiral wine cellar.
- Whittlewoods, who supplied the flooring.
We love: Our absolute favourite elements of the home are the richness of the parquet flooring and sheer all round beauty of a Hartwood oak frame. The copper bath is pretty special too!
