Horrible experience. Appointed George after initial meeting, but then things went down hill. We were told what we wanted to do wasn't possible but he didn't provide creative thinking to resolve it. He seemed argumentative and unwilling to work with us. Initial plans got rejected by the council, and we got blamed by George for trying to do what was not possible. We tried to make some changes to the plans, but George demanded more money, after we had already paid him £1.5k upfront. When we said we were unhappy with the updated drawings and we didn't want to pay we were threatened with legal action. With a pregnant wife we didn't need that hassle so we paid up. We then got someone else to draw the plans from scratch as we wanted, for a fraction of the price, and these flew through planning. The planners even told us that the advice George gave us about what would and would not be acceptable was incorrect. The building work has now been completed and we love our extension, but the experience with George was a monumental waste of £2k. Literally money for nothing other than a lot of stress and anguish.

We’re absolutely delighted with our beautiful new extension. It was a pleasure to work with George at GOA studios. He was recommended to us by a friend and brought with him excellent ideas, knowledge and creativity. The builders were very happy with his detailed plans and the project has progressed very smoothly. Thank you George.

“We appointed GOAStudio in mid 2015 to design an extension and loft conversion for our detached bungalow, with our objective being to have a light filled open-plan living space that would make the most of our large south-facing garden. Of the architects we shortlisted, we choose GOAStudio because we felt George understood our requirements best and came up with constructive ideas at our first meeting. Although we may have been able to do our proposed works under permitted development, George recommended that we seek planning approval because of the contemporary nature of the design. He then managed the planning process with approval granted six weeks after initial submission. The works were completed in Early 2018 and the results are a stunning space that exceeds all of our expectations. Despite the large size of the room the clever design makes it feel inviting and even on an overcast day the room feels light and airy.
