Partnership Design News

Very pleased to see that Hill Covert in Cowley has been featured in the the January issue of Cotswold Life, written by Victoria Jenkins. The article provides an interesting back ground to the scheme with numerous inspiring photographs. There are always lots of worthwhile items and properties in the magazine, so it big bonus for a Partnership Design project, completed last year, to have a mention.

New recent planning application for Perryway Cottage, in Cowley has now been approved by Cotswold District Council.

Worked on a slightly unusual project recently to provide drawings for a shepherds hut. The drawings are intended to be used for planning purposes, as maybe required, by the purchaser. The huts provide a very stylish and individual option for temporary accommodation that can be used almost anyway. It is certainly worth checking out the following site:

I’ve now used Partnership Design for modifications/extensions to my Cotswold stone cottage 3 times in the past 10 years. Howard listened to what we wanted and needed, and created some stunning designs, which were sympathetic but complementary to our wishes. Actually, they gave us more than we thought possible. The sense of light he provided us with in our kitchen was and is simply stunning, while his solution to our most recent request was novel, individual and meticulously designed. Moreover, in dealing with all the Planning application issues, Howard de-stressed the whole procedure for us allowing us the time and space to live while that continued in the background. We were absolutely delighted with his attentive and professional service and cannot recommend him highly enough: a genuinely excellent service. Mike

We have used Howard for designing a double storied extension and changing the layout of the existing house . He made the entire process – from sketches to applying for planning permission , drawing up building regs and recommending allied professions seem very seamless and easy. He is an excellent listener and calm and reasonable. He always delivered the work earlier than promised and charged us a very competitive price . We would happily recommend him to friends and family and would undoubtedly use him again . Bindu

We used Howard for the design of a substantial extension to our Cotswold stone cottage. He provided lots of ideas and provided a final design that we’re really happy with … the cottage now looks stunning … as well as detailing all the required drawings, Howard also dealt with planning application submissions and helped us overcome planning restrictions. Howard is really friendly, approachable and listens to what you want as well as sharing his own ideas … we highly recommend his services …
