The Highest Standards In Architecture

It is considered that the proposed dwelling represents a very high quality and innovative design which reflects the highest standards in architecture and would significantly enhance its immediate setting whilst being sensitive to the defining characteristics of the local area.

Exceptional Quality

…it is considered that the proposal is a building of exceptional quality that is rarely achieved and should represent an exceptional case for consideration.

Planning Officer

Bravo!

How refreshing to see a proposal that fully embraces contemporary design whilst giving a nod to local materials. I’m pleased to see that the inclination to replicate the building next door has been avoided in pursuit of a more visually exciting proposal. Bravo!

H Mackenzie, Neighbour

An Exceptional Building Project

Wow what an exceptional building project, this looks an amazing and contemperory build, this would complement any village and we would be very lucky to have such a build in our village.

B James, Neighbour

Integrity Of Design

By sticking to their guns, and putting a lot of effort into planning, Hunters have achieved a practical contemporary home on an extremely difficult site. Regardless of the various objections, they were confident in the integrity of their design, and were right not to be swayed.

I Was Blown Away - Very Beautiful

I was blown away I could immediately see it is not only very innovative but also very beautiful, to drive out of my house and see this would be as good a start to my day as I can think of.

Nicely Sits On The Plot

It’s really nice to see something that is completely different to these horrible little boxes that everyone is building. How nicely it sits on the plot with the trees and it looks as if it has always been there.

Sits Comfortably in The Streetscape

Designing an individual home which sits comfortably within the streetscape can be a difficult task — but it’s a balance which this contemporary self-build, with its steep-pitched gable ends and considered palette of render, stone and brick cladding, has successfully achieved.

It Shows Passion And Vision

I am impressed with a project that shows such vision and thought. Well thought through to produce an ambitious, but very workable proposal. Its uniqueness stems from its incorporation of some of the best ideas from some of the best sites across the country, not always achieved in just one venue. It shows passion and vision.

Nothing To Be Improved Upon

A very professional, efficient not to say friendly service from start to finish. We would not hesitate to recommend Hunters to anyone. Nothing to be improved upon – service was excellent and friendly throughout, from initial consultation to planning permission approval.

K Kenny, Client

Would Recommend Without Hesitation

We were very happy with Hunters’ Services; trouble free and great communications at all times. Very easy to deal with and would recommend without any hesitation. We tried several other companies but none convinced us we would get an approval for our project. We noted the company on a Public Notice displayed at a site near to us and made contact with them, thank goodness we did.

M Jones, Client

Fantastic To Work With

I found Hunters fantastic to work with, this was our first ever project and they assisted us in visioning what we would want in our home. When I spoke to them I just knew they were right to help me create our dream home for my family.

P Livesey, Client

Took The Time To Understand Our Brief

We would recommend their services. They took the time to understand our brief, encouraged us to think about our design, and added real value in offering excellent complimentary ideas for our house. His knowledge of the local Council planning was invaluable in getting planning permission.

M Krupa, Client

Handled Efficiently and Professionally

We would not hesitate to recommend you to other prospective clients or to use you again. It was always easy to contact you and there were never any long delays. Everything was handled efficiently and professionally – plus the experience you have in dealing with the planning authorities ensured that the drawings not only match our original brief but also fulfil all the necessary regulations.

G Hunt, Client

Outstanding Service

We feel that the service we received from you was outstanding. Very professional and structured. You came up with practical, cost effective solutions. Communication was always quick and responsive.
