From the initial brief working with Steve was very easy. He not only listened to what we wanted but came up with some innovative solutions. Any problems with planning were dealt with promptly and the result has been an extension that is sympathetic to the existing house and highly usable.

Last year we renovated a house in Oxfordshire, this was a new venture for us and an exciting project. One of the people we wanted to help was an architect; somebody who would help with design, give valuable practical advice and help us though the minefield of creating drawings and getting the various permissions through.
We looked around but most of the people we spoke to wanted to run the project for us, be a huge cost item to our budget or would just do the drawings to our specifications.
We were lucky enough to find Steve who worked an ideal middle route; he helped  define the work which needed to be done, refined our plans (a polite way of saying that he looked at our ideas and steered us toward the better ones) and produced all the necessary plans for the builders and regulatory bodies.
Steve worked with us, he was very clear at what work he would do, this was always agreed up front, we knew what the outcome would be, when the outcome would be delivered and what the cost was. The plans which Steve produced were always clear and accepted by the building regulations and the builders and contractors.
Steve listened to us, he worked to our timescales and was extremely helpful in discussing some of the issues we had, explaining the situation and providing excellent advice. The work which Steve did was excellent value for money and we were delighted with the quality of the work done and service provided.
We have been delighted by the outcome of the project; especially the kitchen area which Steve designed and helped us to specify.

I would readily recommend Steve Appleton Architectural Design to anyone looking for a professional, reliable and high-quality service at a reasonable price.
It is immediately obvious when looking at any of Steve’s designs that he takes a real pride in his work and on getting things right down to the very last detail.;
The plans he created for our house extension look fantastic – they are very artistically appealing as well as being extremely accurate. 
I’m convinced that the quality of the plans played a big part in our planning permission being approved.  Steve was a pleasure to work with and we were absolutely delighted with the finished result.
