We wanted to select an architectural practise to enable us to transform our Victorian house into a modern family home. We researched the online portfolios of a number of practises and met with our shortlist. We selected Andrew Wallace Architects based on their portfolio and their initial ideas about our project. Having met Andrew and John we knew we could work well with them both and this was important for us too. We produced a project brief but AWA helped us refine our requirements further during the early design stages. The final design addressed the functional aspects of the project alongside producing a huge wow factor. The design is distinctive, contemporary and elegant but one that also sits well alongside the original Victorian house.

They worked with us through the procurement and build stages of the project working with us to ensure the best quality materials were used and desired finishes were achieved. They also assisted with the management of contractors as well as planning and building control. We are thrilled with the final result. It has transformed how our family lives in our home. We would have no hesitation recommending Andrew Wallace Architects to other prospective clients.

I first used Andrew Wallace Architects and Interior Designers to design a delicatessen I developed in city centre Manchester. Andrew personally developed the design and led the project on site. His attention to detail was very high and he had clearly spent a long time considering all aspects of the design and product choices. The resulting design surpassed my expectations. On site he was tenacious with the contractor, never settling for just good enough. This led to a great end product that still came in on time and budget. I believe it also went on to win several local awards.

Recently I came back to Andrew for him to undertake a residential development. Again his designs were outstanding. Unfortunately in the end I was unable to secure the land and the project did not develop to the construction stage. I have come to know Andrew on a personal level and find him honest and straightforward, and I intend to use him again when the right investment opportunity comes along.

I am the director of Derbyshire Construction a local construction company and worked on a project as the main contractor when Andrew Wallace Architects were the architects. I was impressed by their designs for the project as they were much more original than the usual fare. When I later bought an empty plot of land to develop as my own house I went to them to act as the architects. On what was a difficult site in a very strict conservation area they came up with a solution that dealt with all the issues and gave me a thrilling contemporary home that I am delighted with and proud of.

I found their use of three dimensional CAD modelling particularly useful to visualise the house and give us the confidence it would be what we wanted. Their attention to detail allowed me to ensure designs were clearly understood enabling me to keep my budgets set. They also carried out the interior design works on the house which again was simply stunning. I would be happy to recommend Andrew Wallace Architects for anyone considering the use of an architect or interior designer for a residential development. They were very attentive and nothing was ever any trouble.

I instructed Andrew and John to deliver the design for a luxurious substantial single family dwelling in a conservation area in South Manchester. The brief itself was very demanding and was further complicated by certain inherent restrictions and challenges dictated by the chosen site for the proposed development. 

However, in a very short period of time Andrew and John produced a very imaginative design reflecting faithfully the ideas set out in our brief. Moreover, their design turned the limitations imposed by the site in a visually very pleasing aesthetic. The work they produced was consistently of very high quality, delivered against a very demanding timetable and supported by other professional advisers they brought in as and when required.

Having worked with Andrew Wallace Architects successfully on a large scale residential development project in Didsbury as the main contractor (Ladson Construction), and given their modern style, it was an easy choice and a good fit to work with them again now on my substantial family home refurbishment and extension. Unlike many Architects practices they obviously put a lot of preparation into the detailed drawings for the Didsbury development which ensured the works on site were problem free. As a company we found them trustworthy and reliable throughout. The Didsbury development won various industry awards for design and construction. 

Their expertise and passion for interior design was another key factor in choosing to work with them on such an important project for our family where we never plan to move from and so every aspect needs to be designed thoughtfully and delivered precisely. Their time invested in completing 3D Cad renders and models is really assisting us in visualizing the designs as they progress and is making decisions easier for myself and my wife. It’s also very exciting and adding a lot of fun to the process.
