Transformation of a 1950’s property with a complete interior and exterior contemporary renovation.

..We chose Absolute Architecture because they really listened to us. Kate interpreted our requirements within a really innovative scheme to give us the family home we always wanted. Other architects made suggestions without taking into account our actual needs. This didn't inspire us with confidence that a house stuck in a fifties time warp could be transformed into one fit for 21st century living. Kate has also been with us through every step of our build and has taken away the many stresses that it can bring. We are extremely happy with the personal yet professional way that our project has been handled and would have no hesitation in recommending the Absolute Architecture team. We now have a home which is unique, stylish and exactly what we had hoped for.

A new build contemporary eco home in Newbury

..We looked at the Absolute Architecture web site and felt this was the type of architect we could work with. We met Kate on site and immediately knew that she understood and listened to us regarding the type of development we wanted for the plot to build a unique and sustainable house that would realise the full potential of the site. This has been proved totally correct and Kate has converted our vision into reality. All obstacles and issues have been worked through to achieve the planning approval and we have had full confidence in Kate throughout the process.

An extension and loft conversion to a period townhouse

..My husband and I have been talking about an extension for years. Kate has taken our hopes and dreams and made them real and workable. We now are last are seeing progress, where we were experiencing stalemate and have been guided through the mountain of paper work with ease. It was a great relief to find someone who is so personable and professional and at the same letting us feel that the project was still very much our own. Thank you.

Loving conversion of Newbury’s registry office back into a family home

..We had decided the time was right to find the long term family home; a place with some character and period features that we could transform to suit 21st century living. With such a large decision at stake, Kate Cooper’s advice while we searched for the ideal property was invaluable; she was able to describe the full potential of properties as well as provide rough costings. Together we identified the perfect house which had the potential to really suit the way we wanted to live. After a few meetings to discuss ideas for how we might use the space, Kate drew up some great options to improve the property, ranging from minor work to more radical designs. This coupled with her interior design skills meant we could visualise the finished product, tailored to our specific budget. We would never have imagined the final design we chose, which was able to really open and modernised the living space while retaining the character features. With Kate’s knowledge of local property development businesses, she was able to steer us towards trusted and proven builders, tradesmen and suppliers, as well as help with the necessary planning permission. This took a great deal of the stress out of the project and maximises the potential of the property. We now have a great team established with a good working relationship.

Renovation of a 1930’s country house in Pangbourne

..When we first saw Franklands both Ben and I could see the potential it had although we knew it wouldn't be a quick or easy job. We interviewed four RIBA architects. Kate was the only one who brought along a builder that she works with regularly and we thought this was a good idea as it meant we had another professional to question about costs and time scale etc. Kate also arranged for us to see some of her other work in progress so we could see how the process would unfold - viewing the dust and mess prepared us for what would become our every day life for several months. Kate's ideas matched our ideas of what we wanted our home to become and she allowed for several changes along the way - and seemed pretty unflappable at our requests - and there were quite a few! We are nearly at the end of phase one and the results are stunning. We are very happy with the design of our home and look forward to moving in.

Renovation and extension of a period cottage house in Tutts Clump

..Since we began our project we have been very impressed with Absolute Architecture. Kate has added real value by taking our ideas and requirements, enhancing them and delivering a design that not only meets our needs but encompasses elements we hadn’t considered. This has been particularly important to us as our project involves reconfiguring virtually all the interior space in our house. In addition, Kate’s personable and consultative style helps to create a positive working relationship that translates into a better end product. A further benefit has come from Kate’s knowledge of the construction industry in West Berkshire helping to take the risk out of our choice of main contractor.

Extension to a Victorian cottage in Newtown

..Many thanks for all your help this year Kate. It is truly greatly appreciated. There is absolutely no way we could have achieved the wonderful changes that we have without you. We are still decorating - it's never ending!!.. and have accepted we won't have skirting boards and several other outstanding things for christmas... but when you look beyond these, we can see a fantastic new home (a few festive piccies attached!!). THANK YOU.

Extension to a converted chapel in Weston

..We both were delighted with the plans that Kate Cooper drew up for our new extension. We live in a converted chapel and wanted to be sure that any extension to our living space would not look out of keeping with the original, simple design. We were impressed that Kate faithfully incorporated our needs, wishes and concerns into account when producing the initial drawings. We were delighted when she suggested design ideas that improved the look and function of the space that we had not even contemplated! The process was open and flexible with ample opportunity to discuss and change details so that we ended up with something we were really pleased with. The result is a design that is attractive and functional and will really change the way we use our home.

Interior renovation of a town house in Donnington Square

Not only did Kate help us with our designs but she provided advice on how we should approach our project. As renovation novices this proved invaluable. We thought we had a clear idea of how we wanted to design the house. However, Kate came up with alternative designs which greatly improved the internal layout. With busy working lives it was great to work with Kate who was always flexible around meeting times. We were also impressed by how quickly Kate turned around action points from each meeting.
