“Stuart was a joy to work with. With our property being a second home it was all important we had someone we could trust to manage the project and ensure everything was completed timely and to the required quality despite a number of challenges which always come up in projects like this.
He was always responsive and willing to give objective advice which was appreciated. From the planning permission, contractor tendering, building works to post completion snagging, Stuart provided excellent communication which resulted in no last minute surprises.
The project was hampered by torrential rain flooding parts of the build, Stuart and the contractor ensured that the property was drained and dehumidified so that he timeline was not significantly impacted. We are sure that without Stuart the project would have been lengthier, had more issues and come in at a much higher expense.
We would highly recommend his services.”

“Whereas several of the architects we interviewed came with preconceptions about our scheme, Stuart listened to us, recognised that we already had a viable plan for the space and set about interpreting that into a scheme that delivered to our desires and our budget.
His imagination and awareness of the importance of light added to the scheme and gave us a beautiful and practical home that we love and others admire.
We would recommend him without hesitation.”
Joe Aspey, The Old Bakehouse
“Extending your own house is both exciting and challenging; that’s why having Stuart’s expertise and advice every step of the way was invaluable.
Not only did Stuart interpret our vision for the house into something buildable, he also successfully navigated the planning process with a rigorous approach backed up with a strategy and knowledge.
From planning to completion, Stuart provided excellent support down to every detail and I consider myself both lucky to have found him and honoured to have created such an amazing house with him.”
Sean Witheford, The Gables

Our business relationship goes from strength to strength, we have complete faith in Stuart and his capabilities.
We would absolutely recommend Absolute Architecture. They are professional, competitive and their service is always delivered with good humour - on time, on budget and to a very high standard.“

“Stuart was appointed as our architecture for the design and build management of our New Head Quarters on Vale Business Park, Evesham.
We were recommended to use Stuart and his firm Absolute Architecture from one of our Commercial neighbours.
Stuart was a joy to work with from the outset; His attention to detail, suggestions, thinking outside the box, meant that we could draft and implement an eye catching scheme which was not only aesthetically striking on the eye, but practical and made best use of the area we had available for the development.
It’s also worth noting that Stuart’s fees were very reasonable, his support throughout the project and representation with the planning officers helped to relieve further pressures and allowed me to remain focused on running my business during the initial stages of the project.
I would not hesitate in recommending Stuart in the future and he is now working with us on plans to extend and further develop the site.”
Ismail Elmagdoub, Company Director
We were looking for a multi-functioning, adaptable workspace that would deliver a VOLVO presence in the Vale of Evesham.
From planning through to construction and handover Stuart is very much hands on. Working closely with all parties he drives the project to a high standard, including monitoring and managing the building contractor and finishing on budget.
To support our recent growth we are now expanding this property, which will be our third project together.
If you are looking for a professional, Cotswold based architect who has both design foresight and practical, construction experience, then I highly recommend Absolute Architecture.
