The consultation work was really enjoyable! Very happy with how we managed to fit in a functional, contemporary layout into a not-so-willing older cottage and delighted with how the drawings have come out; love how they've maximised the space, particularly getting full use of the end room with the mountain views! Patti is very knowledgeable, thorough, and has great respect for detail when working with older properties, which can be a difficult find in today's world. Thank you Patti.
I highly recommend Patti and her in-depth design clinic. For us, what we were originally looking for was a revised layout and extension of our old 1950s home. With Patti's skill set and creativity, what we got was a detailed plan creating optimised flow of space, increased light and maximised views. Her creativity against focus, clarity and sustainability ensured we obtained maximum effectiveness and a cohesiveness between the old and new. Patti is extremely thorough, detailed in her approach, process, design, drawings and outcome. If you are looking for an expert safe pair of hands to ensure you get the most out of your existing structure versus what you want as well as what you need, Patti is the professional you have been looking for.
We had our Design Clinic conducted over Skype due to Covid 19. Patti really captured what we were looking to achieve and how best we could integrate this into our home. We didn’t lose any of the value of Patti’s brilliant Design Clinic concept, we just didn’t get to meet her in person! Our end product design is exactly what we need. Many thanks Patti.
We have great satisfaction of how Patti maximises the use of the sun from early in the morning till late in the evening, which saves on our fuel bills and is good for the environment. Mostly, however, there is a sense of well being from living in a house where the sun is going through all day. We would never had envisioned the home that we have without Patti's professional advice. Overall we found the service superb.
We discussed at length what I wanted and what I needed. This process was not easy for me but with Patti’s patience and encouragement and at the end of a very long day I had a plan I really liked.
Thank you sincerely Patti.
The online design clinic experience worked as well for me and I would recommend it as an alternative to a home visit. I shared photos and measurements beforehand as well as the general scope of my extension needs and ideas.
The first part of our discussion was based on my wishlist for my extension and how I intended to use the space, and talking online about this was very straightforward. When it came to putting ideas down on paper, I did feel that this would be more challenging to do online, but by doing a screenshare Patti was easily able to sketch and talk me through different options.
At the end of our session (which we split into two segments to accommodate a break from the laptop), I came away with a clear idea of how my new space should look and the next day Patti shared drawings based on our clinic discussion that I can now take to builders for cost estimates.
We had discussed altering our home and had come up with lots of ideas, but we needed some clarity in the form of expert advice. Patti listened to our requirements, assessed the house and came up with lots of ideas, that were both practical and creative. At the end of the day Patti left us with a plan that was exactly what we were hoping for! We are thrilled with the outcome and would highly recommend Patti to anyone seeking to improve their home.
