From our first meeting with Woodfield Brady, it was clear that we had found the right firm of architects to design our home and help guide us through the process.

The redevelopment of our house was a significant exercise which was daunting at times, particularly as we had never attempted anything like it before.

The initial design incorporated all the key aspects of our brief yet contained many flourishes and clever solutions to practical issues that have made it something special.

They were successful in securing planning and listed building consent without any modifications to the plans and were at hand during the build whenever I or my builder needed any help or advice. I always felt nothing was too much trouble and their approachable manner made our meetings both pleasant and productive.

OUR PROCESS.

01.

DESIGN

Every project is unique and starts with a site visit, allowing us to assess the constraints and opportunities specific to the project location and context. With a good understanding of your brief, aspirations, and budget we can begin to look at design concepts. We can also advise you on the best approach to secure planning permission.

02.

DEVELOP

Working closely with you during the design process is the best way to guarantee a successful project outcome. We visualise our ideas using sketches, models and CAD drawings so that you can see the design coming to life. We’ll talk regularly as we develop the design to ensure that the only surprises you get are good ones.

03.

EXECUTE

With a final design and written specification, we can invite builders to quote for the work. If you wish, we can manage the building work for you. Having a professional oversee the project ensures that no corners are cut and that the build keeps stays within budget. It will also almost certainly reduce your stress levels!

I found them to be thoroughly professional, giving great customer service and value for money. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone considering a similar project.

Woodfield Brady were exactly what we needed on our Barn Conversion project….thoughtful, challenging, creative, detailed and a good investment..The team also came up with some creative solutions to some of the stickier solutions!
Each element was clearly explained and they liaised well with our Building contractor to ensure that some of the more complex elements were well understood pre build.

Testimonials

I have been incredibly impressed by Woodfield Brady from my first meeting with them two years ago. They took the time to understand my requirements and objectives and worked with me to produce a super, innovative design for a large extension to my grade 2 listed thatched cottage.

-Gill P, Oxfordshire

In the conceptualisation and design process, Woodfield Brady brought great ideas and produced tender documents that were brilliantly detailed to enable a very smooth build process. They were also extremely helpful and effective in their approach to working with the council to support our planning application. Once the build process was under way, the support in helping us navigate and provide solutions to unforeseen issues was remarkable.

-Harriet B, Berkshire

They took my drawings, listened to what we were trying to achieve and came back with some amazing drawings and ideas. They managed to stay true to our 'sketches' whilst bringing a modern stylish look to the whole building, which also needed to fit in with our agricultural surroundings.

We decided on several internal changes and discussed our reasons and got good advice an how it could be done. The plans were re-drawn with no fuss and returned quickly. We are pleased with their work, found them nice to work with and would highly recommend them.

We appointed Woodfield Brady to give us some ideas as to how we could join an adjoining barn to our house. I think we had something of a functional link in our heads at outset but WBA created something much more than that and they really created a flow which enabled us to join our kitchen and dining rooms together with a new sitting room in the barn. Their eye for space enabled us to build a high ceiling into the link area which has created a light and airy feel throughout and a real flow to the house. We are delighted. At all times, we found Woodfield Brady polite, informative and good listeners. They are thoughtful and talented. We would most certainly recommend them to others’

Woodfield Brady immediately understood that we wanted to improve the internal space in the building – bigger kitchen; more light, additional upstairs bedroom, new family room etc – while bringing all the rooms closer together and exposing more of the Tudor fabric of the building.

Despite being in a conservation area, and Grade II listed, WBA steered us effectively through pre-planning and conversation meetings which enabled us to secure planning permission first time! No small feat for an ambitious building project in a historic village.
