TESTIMONIALS FROM OUR CLIENTS
Straight from the Source
"Freeman Architecture provided a full service of design, submission to Planning and project management for our extension and refurbishment. We found Matthew Freeman to be professional, creative in his thinking around problems and quirks in the build and helpful in advising what not to include when budget constraints required paring back. Sarah Freeman looked at the kitchen design with me, and although I already had a plan of what I wanted, she helped me achieve this with practical and creative advice. We are delighted with the finished project which more than fulfils the brief
SARAH BATES, BAMPTON, OXFORDSHIRE
"Matt Freeman provided us with a professional friendly service, he also has the ability to think outside the box and has great vision and enthusiasm for the project. I would highly recommend his services."
CHARLIE DONALD, WITNEY, OXFORDSHIRE
“Matthew is an excellent architect who worked with us to design our perfect extension. He is very knowledgeable and helped us through the planning application stages and kept us up to date with the whole process. I would happily recommend Matthew to anyone for their future building projects”
MR DAVE HAMER, DIDCOT, OXFORDSHIRE
"Matt completed the work for our garage conversion quickly and efficiently. I would not hesitate to recommend him".
MR & MRS BADHAM THORNHILLS, OXFORD, OXFORDSHIRE
"We hired Freeman Architecture to draw up plans for a single storey extension. Matt Provided an excellent service and was friendly and professional. He was quick to provide plans and understood our needs. His knowledge and experience helped to put us at ease having never done anything like this before. Communication was always clear and prompt."
MR BLYTH, ABINGDON, OXFORDSHIRE
"Full set of drawings for single storey extension to rear of the house. Drawings were completed to an agreed time frame and amended at my request without delay. A full brief was carried out before drawing work started with Matt explaining what may be best for such an extension. The only amendment I needed to make was the roof covering as the zinc proposed (my choice) worked out very expensive so asked so an alternative and again was given advice without any hassle. Overall a very good service and would recommend to anybody in the future."
DANIEL HARWOOD, BICESTER, OXFORDSHIRE
“We were very impressed with the quality of the drawings issued by Mr Freeman. Of real benefit to us were the 3D illustrations and movie which helped us to visualise in precise detail how our home improvements will look. Modifications to realise our ideal plans from a conceptual idea were welcomed and readily accommodated and we have been delighted with Matthew’s professionalism throughout the complete design process.”
MR & MRS BEARDSLEY, CHILTON, OXFORDSHIRE
"As well as a professional service, Freeman Architecture have great design ideas that can really bring your project to life. Matt is very personable and friendly, listens and can help inform choices with a depth of knowledge and experience."
WES BROOKES, EYNSHAM, OXFORDSHIRE
"We would like to thank Sarah for our wonderful new Kitchen. We came to her with lots of our own ideas but not sure how to put them together. We weren't sure about the colours or all the extras such as lighting, door handles and worktops. She put together a fabulous design - even making sure that the doors on the wall cupboards and cupboards below lined up to give a more pleasing look. She reassured us about the colours we eventually chose - for the units, walls and curtains. We love the lighting, the units, the pull-out food drawers, the amazing corner units whose shelves come right out and the two full-sized ovens under the five burner hob. The kitchen is a joy to work in, there is plenty of space and everything is much closer to hand. We would definitely recommend her."
PETER AND GILL LEWIS, WEST CHILTINGTON
"Matt came and had a look at out project and offered great advice on what we could potentially gain from an extension. His knowledge was invaluable in getting the wheels in motion to gain planning permission in a speedy time frame. We would highly recommend Matt."
ADAM LOCK, SHIPTON UNDER WYCHWOOD, OXFORDSHIRE
"Matt was full of good ideas early in the planning process and went the extra mile to ensure the work was carried out correctly, keeping calm and in control when under pressure. He has been a pleasure to work with."
CHARLIE STANLEY-EVANS, KENCOT, OXFORDSHIRE
"Sarah has been a pleasure to work with. She has listened carefully to my requirements and helped me come up with some lovely design ideas and subsequently designed a super kitchen within agreed timelines"
GAIL SMITH, LONG HANBOROUGH, OXFORDSHIRE
"When we decided to extend our home, we invited over 5 architects to quote and also provide their ideas. Matt really stood out as someone I could work with; he was easy going, professional and understood exactly what I was trying to achieve. I found he was very willing to listen to my ideas but also was able to come up with many alternatives that part incorporated my own but also improved upon them. Some of his ideas I rejected and gave my reasons why - either budget, or not quite creating the living space we wanted and he used this to rethink and come back with new possibilities.
We changed the scheme about 8 times and Matt was extremely courteous and had an incredibly quick turnaround. The speed of turnaround was very important to us as we wanted to get the plans in by a certain date and really appreciated this. He then handled the whole planning process, including altering and resubmitting the plans a second time!! At no point did I feel that I couldn't ask him to change something again - which is exactly how you want to feel when you are potentially spending a lot of on build; you want to be able to get the home right.
I contacted Matt 10 months after my last contact with him to just enquire about a walkthrough to help visualise the finished property and he was kind enough to send me the model he had already previously created of our home during the construction draws. He could easily have charged me for this but didn't and this model was exactly what we needed. He then altered this model for free with some minor changes even once I had offered to pay a second time!
If we ever need architectural services again, I will certainly be using Matt. I know friends who have had trouble with extra charges for alterations to schemes, or architects choosing to produce what they consider a nice home without real consulting clients wishes and so I feel lucky to have picked a competent professional with an excellent work ethic, speedy communication, competitive and generally a nice guy."
ANNABEL MULCAHY, OXFORDSHIRE
"Matt drew up plans for an outbuilding, the quality & detail of which were the best of the three architect/architectural designers I've used to date. Very organised and professional, he promptly answered support questions during the build too. A pleasure to work with."
THILEE THIAGARAJA, OXFORD, OXFORDSHIRE
