“My project was an ambitious conversion of a dated bungalow, into a contemporary five-bedroom home. With the help of archangels ARCHITECTS, this vision was delivered to create an inverted house that fully utilised the tight plot, and encompassed the panoramic views. From design and planning to build, archangels ensured that the house was built to the highest specification, with clever design ideas and thoughtful layout.”
“archangels ARCHITECTS’ knowledge and expertise took our project from ordinary to exceptional. Added to this, their friendliness and clear explanations gave us great confidence throughout the process – we are absolutely delighted with the results and would thoroughly recommend them to anyone.”
“I would recommend archangels ARCHITECTS every time. With a project of refurbishing a Grade 1 listed flat in Hove, the problems of dealing with heritage, planning etc. appeared insurmountable at times. However, the experience and the cool calm persona of archangels ARCHITECTS shone through at some very difficult stages of the project finally resulting in an excellent outcome.”
“archangels ARCHITECTS designed a loft for us, with two bedrooms and a bathroom. They also designed an extension at the back of the house, and cleverly reconfigured the downstairs layout. The work has completely transformed our home. The loft works extremely well for us, and all our three children now have their own bedroom. We are especially delighted with our extension. We now have a dream kitchen, with a lofty ceiling and lots of light. Everyone says ‘Wow!’ when they first see it. The design is so imaginative and makes the new space work to its absolute best. It looks even better in real life than on paper.”
“We engaged archangels ARCHITECTS following the recommendation of another professional. They capably and smoothly navigated our house plans through the difficulties of Building Control, co-ordinated with the structural engineer on our behalf, and advised on adaptations to make the finished project more aesthetically appealing and efficient. archangels ARCHITECTS have been a constant ally in the challenges of development, guiding and supporting at every turn. We have both been very impressed with their skill in negotiating (what seemed to us) huge obstacles of officialdom, and her commitment to us as her clients. We would therefore unreservedly recommend their services and look forward to working on further projects with them in the future.”

“The experience of working with aaA on getting planning permission for our dream home in Brighton has been extremely positive. At our initial meetings, they grasped quickly what we wanted from the house design and injecting their 'green expertise' into the overall plan, made it a 'landmark design' (as stated by the Appeals Inspectorate). Clear communication, creative design, incisive delivery, that’s what sets archangels ARCHITECTS from the rest.”
“I highly recommend archangels as Architects. They worked with me to design a new kitchen that not only suited a plan for a grade 2 listed building requirements but met all my specifications i.e. providing a kitchen / relaxing area which was light and opened up the house to the garden. They subsequently obtained planning permission and then helped to negotiate costs with the builder and carried out checks on site. aaA made me feel supported and comfortable throughout the whole planning and building process. I'm delighted with the conservatory extension and I'm glad that I used archangels ARCHITECTS.”
“My ground floor Victorian flat in Kemp Town has some fabulous features but had been spoiled by internal walls put up by previous owners. With the help of aaA, I have been able to open up the entire floor area and create a fantastic kitchen accessible through an impressive arch and a tiled bathroom which, though actually smaller than the original, looks much bigger and incorporates valuable and attractive storage cupboards which were custom built. aaA helped me to navigate the complexities of the Planning Department (this is a Grade II Listed Building), provided plans for the lease holders, recommended a structural engineer and drew up a detailed Scope of Works statement from which building contractors could quote. aaA gave excellent value for money and I shall be using their expertise again this year when I tackle a new door and windows onto a raised garden terrace.”
“archangels ARCHITECTS were selected for my eco new build via a positive recommendation. The design brief was tough; to design and gain planning for a new contemporary dwelling in the Surrey Green Belt. We specifically requested an open plan family friendly light and airy house that would enhance our woodland site.
archangels ARCHITECTS listen carefully to the clients' wishes. We received substantial support throughout the planning process which ultimately resulted in a positive outcome. More importantly, they were accessible and flexible when the situation became complicated. Always a pleasure to work with, I would, without hesitation recommend archangels ARCHITECTS as exceptional architects and valuable members of your team.”
“I lived in a 2-bed Victorian terrace and wanted a loft conversion to make another bedroom as my daughters grew up. aaA designed a brilliant large space, opening up the fantastic views from the top of the house, and we are all still absolutely delighted with it. They were really efficient in getting the appropriate permissions lined up at each stage, which wasn’t easy because the property had been converted before and had some real oddities and the whole process had to be well thought through. They enabled me to realise the more unusual features I had always wanted to have, like a spiral staircase, and folding outdoors to the open roof space, and sorted out all the obstacles & regulations involved. I really appreciated how easy it was to communicate with them, how they kept me informed about progress, and how they communicated well with the builders.”
After 18 years living in the same property, I was seriously considering moving due to a cramped bathroom which also had the only access to the garden, which I loved but underused. The solution that aaA came up with has given me a far better bathroom and access to my garden through new double doors in the bedroom, via an elegant steel and glass walkway.
At all stages of the work, aaA were available to advise on everything from contractors to tiles and ensured the smooth running of the project. I am extremely pleased with the results and have no desire to move. The works have increased the value of my home and saved the expense of moving.”
“Involving archangels ARCHITECTS in advancing our first-floor extension and replacement garage plans through to planning permission first go has proved to be an informed decision. Their ability to transfer our ideas to paper, add value to the project and make the complicated look simple has been refreshing. All-round the service was good value for money and prompt responses were received whenever questions were asked.”
“From our first meeting with archangels ARCHITECTS, at our house, they came up with a brilliant way of creating an airy and light stairway up to a potential loft conversion. Without this design idea, the project would not have been able to proceed. We now have an extra bedroom (which is too nice for guests so we moved in ourselves) plus an en suite shower room and a walk-in wardrobe. We feel lucky that we chose archangels as they were great throughout the build process too and we would certainly work with them again and recommend them to anyone who wants a modern cut on making the most of their space.”
