Architecture Live planned and designed the complete extension and renovation of our 1960's house in West Sussex. At every stage they listened to our needs and requirements as a family and took those on board - while always adding new ideas and the flair to lift our project out of the ordinary. Their advice on energy efficiency and no-nonsense approach to eco initiatives was also refreshing and extremely valuable. Three years on we still absolutely love living in our house - which is both perfectly functional and extremely beautiful. We have an on-going relationship with the team as we are still completely further phases of our project, and find that their ideas and energy continue to impress. Highly recommend.

Both Jonathan and Irene from ArchitectureLIVE drew up our designs for our double extension and interior redesign project. Sought and gained planning permission.
Our property is a 1930s cottage in the South Downs which Jonathan and Irene took our requirements and came up with several options of how to sympathetically extend.
It was designed in keeping with the South Downs area, ensuring both aesthetically pleasing and likely to be accepted by both county and our local parish councils.
We just loved the final designs. They came up with wonderful, practical ideas that we hadn't even thought about.
Would highly recommend.

My wife and I bought a house in Haslemere in 2010, a perfectly charming period house with three small but adequate bedrooms but a small and unloved ground floor. We always had dreams of one day extending it.
Having searched around she found ArchitectureLIVE and was immediately excited by their projects and approach.
Jonathan patiently sat with us finding more about ourselves and our tastes and, over a couple of months, returned with some exciting ideas. As sometimes happens it took a number of years to be able to mobilise ourselves (both practically and financially) to finally be able to create the space. During that time Jonathan maintained contact and as the project approached its start date we were able to modify and revisit the designs.
It is hard to describe how much the resulting extension has changed our lives, indeed the word ‘extension’ doesn’t quite capture what we now live in. ArchitectureLIVE has created a totally unique space that reflects us as a family and provided a brand new living space.
It is testament to the design that it has been shortlisted for the Waverley Architectural Awards 2019 (announcement of the award is in March 2019).
We are incredibly proud of the extension and so very grateful to ArchitectureLIVE for what they have given to us as a family.
Thinking out of the box and coming up with ideas that I never would have thought of myself, ArchitectureLIVE designed an innovative solution for my extension/reconfiguration project. Looking forward to seeing the project realised over the next few months.
Excellent knowledge very supportive
