What our clients say about us

“Richard has been engaged and committed with a keen eye for detail throughout the whole project. In particular, his involvement throughout the build stage was invaluable. We simply couldn't have achieved the finish we have without his rigorous approach to design detailing, persistence, focus and excellent communication with all the tradespeople involved”

– Jane Wallenstein, Bristol

“We worked with Richard in 2016 and 2017 to design and support the build of a modern extension to our detached Victorian property and we've got a great result to live in. It's large, whilst modern it picks up themes from the original house and it lets in huge amounts of light, giving our family a desirable focal point. Richard was courteous & professional with a nice balance between creativity and detail. He was always willing to try and understand and develop our thoughts and ideas which made us feel part of the project and made the end result feel like something we had had a significant role in creating”

– Robin Jacques, Clevedon

“The prospect of working out how we could extend our home in a way that would give us the space we needed whilst adhering to planning regulations in a conservation area was a daunting one, but working with Richard through the whole planning process has been a pleasure. In the first instance he had the patience to listen to our ideas both in person and on the phone, and we were amazed by the level of detail that went in to realizing our vision. Fit Architects’ service exceeded our (very high) expectations and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Richard to friends, family and anyone else who needs a highly creative and diligent architect – someone whom we now consider a friend.”

– Giles Badger, Bristol

“Now that the build is starting to take shape and the plans are becoming a reality, I just wanted to get in touch to thank you again for all your efforts towards helping us understand what could be achieved in this house. I don't think we'd have got this anywhere near this far without your knowledge, skill, attention to detail and patience.”

- David Spencer, Bristol

Our focus is on providing a professional service that brings excellent value to every project.

Whatever the project, we offer a free initial consultation to discuss your plans and advise where we might best be of use.

We provide the full range of Architectural Services through all the RIBA stages and are happy to break this down to enable you to use us only where we bring the most value.

We understand that every project represents a major investment and therefore we manage the budget wisely, always designing within cost constraints.

We will work with you to see a project all the way through to its completion, or alternatively obtain statutory approvals such as Planning Permission or Building Regulations approval and let you take it from there.

Our approach

We believe that good design has an important part to play in all our lives and should be applied to every project, whether large or small, whether for a homeowner or professional developer, a local authority or community group.

Our approach is collaborative, based primarily on the importance of listening to our clients and identifying with their aspirations. At all stages of the design process we aim to communicate our ideas to you with clarity through drawings, sketches and models.

We also see it necessary to offer a vision that is inspirational, through the use of precedents, to open up the options available.

We are thoughtful and creative in our approach to all projects and our proposals are all strongly contextual, arising from a response to the unique character of each site, the particular demands of the brief and the exploration of a number of options before settling on any one solution. This is underpinned with a real commitment to finding more sustainable ways of living.

Above all, we believe that good design should have honesty and integrity at its heart - creating buildings and places of today for tomorrow that delight, stimulate and inspire all who come into contact with them.
