Residential Services

“We needed an experienced, solution-focused architect to aid us in developing a constrained site in Hackney adjacent to a locally listed terrace providing 4 new residential apartments. Mark Fairhurst and his team worked closely, patiently and diligently with us through a thorough process of exploration as we carefully considered the principals of development, pre-planning, planning, and technical design. They were always helpful and available, pragmatic and creative; squeezing a lot from a compact site while meeting some pretty stern requirements from the planning and building control authorities.

I’d recommend Mark Fairhurst Architects to anyone seeking high-quality, commercially aware solutions that maximise the potential of sites and help deliver a high quality end product.”

Domestic Services

“Mark Fairhurst Architects were recommended by a colleague and provided us with knowledgeable guidance, suggestions and design ideas in the early stages, exceptional service throughout, and most importantly project management. This was key particularly during phases where variations provided challenges that we could not have handled without him and his team. We are delighted with the results and have no hesitation in recommending Mark Fairhurst Architects to others looking to transform their homes.”

-Jim & Emma Gant

“We needed an architectural design to renovate and extend our Victorian terraced house, Mark Fairhurst Architects were recommended to us by a relative and produced a design to our specification and provided advice in relation to a number of issues along the way, the design produced was tailored to our requirements, and made the best use of space in our house.

We particularly liked the attention to detail, the enthusiasm for the project, the quality of the work, which is clearly apparent in the final product, and the fact that the design was suited to the space of the house. Mark Fairhurst Architects were also willing and able to be flexible in relation to what input we required at different stages of the project.

It was reassuring to have someone on board with the right expertise and experience to take us through the project. We are delighted with the end product, and are certain the house would not look as good or be as functional as it is without the input of Mark Fairhurst Architects. We would recommend the business to friends and family.”

Maria Nicholas & Hugo Foster

”We needed an experienced and supportive architect to guide us through the design and build procedure for a side return kitchen extension and patio area. We chose Mark as he has experience with similar domestic projects and is local to area so is familiar with the issues connected to our site. We have a steeply sloping garden which offered particular design challenges which he addressed perfectly, celebrating the character of the Victorian property whilst designing a contemporary light filled space. Mark and his team understood our criteria and were always available to discuss alternative strategies, reassure and support us through the project. We recommend Mark Fairhurst Architects to others considering similar projects.”

-Sue & Steve Owen

Very good client feedback for: adherence to brief, quality of service, design, detailing and workmanship, contract administration, overall management of scheme, progress and expenditure, financial control, adherence to the programme, responsiveness, value for money.
