We have used Dale Loth Architects twice, first in Addison Road, London (2001/2) and secondly to work on a large Victorian rectory outside Oxford (2007/8). The projects were very different and underline Dale Loth Architects' breadth of expertise and flexibility. From the outset, they listened to our broad specifications, providing immediate feedback, and a range of design options. Communication was excellent throughout on both projects, important as both lasted over 12 months and involved multiple stages. An indication of the costs of each option was provided at an early stage (in detail) and these initial costings proved accurate. There were no sudden financial surprises in either project.
We would highly recommend the design and creative expertise of Dale Loth Architects. The Victorian rectory was a large project that involved the design of a large conservatory (the final design is an amazing space that is now the focus of the house, linked into a completely redesigned kitchen). A study area was also created linked to an outside pond and waterfall complex. The use of lighting, materials and design to link - yet segregate - different areas was particularly impressive, especially to incorporate these newer parts to the house to the traditional Victorian rectory.
We always felt that we received very high levels of attention from Dale Loth Architects and received immediate responses to any queries and issues that arose throughout the design and construction process.
We have no hesitation in recommending them, and indeed will use them again on any future project.
