We have recently used RD architects to design a new extension for our house. I have personally known Rebecca Dyer for just over 2 years.

I cannot recommend Rebecca more highly and would strongly recommend the company to anyone looking for an architect.

She is extremely committed and capable and always able to find solutions to problems. She is very innovative yet practical and able to incorporate the client's brief into her designs. She is both reliable and hard working and keeps you well informed throughout every stage of the process.

She follows up every phone call, email or letter immediately and is always professional but still approachable and one of the most thorough and precise people I have met.

She has been a real pleasure to work with.

Rebecca Dyer of R.D. Architects Ltd first came to my attention as a result of her article in HOMEBUILDING & RENOVATION Magazine. The article featured 'Trees'. She designed and built a modern open-plan well lit family home for herself, two young children, and her architect husband.

She suggested visiting our site in rural Suffolk, with a view to producing ideas to suit ourselves, our living style, and the particular aspects of our six acre wooded site. A lot of time spent, and questions answered, ensured that our needs were understood. Her ideas reinforced our own, and introduced some others we had not thought of to exploit the best aspects of our site. We were delighted with the design.

The presentation to the planners was to build on the new site more centrally within the plot, and to demolish the old house. This change of position and an increased footprint might have been a problem, but it was justified by design and narrative and the application was recommended by the planning officer and accepted on first attempt by the planning committee. Rebecca has an excellent understanding of how these things work. The presentation was very professional, and the design pleasing to pretty much all who saw it. This local appreciation matching the award Rebecca received on television's Grand Designs" best modern new build," and much other national acclaim.

The terms and conditions offered by R.D.A. closely followed the format suggested by the R.I.B.A. These were amicable.

I have no hesitation in recommending R.D.A. to any other prospective client.

I would like to tell you a bit about our experience of Rebecca of RDArchitects. April 2009 we bought a plot of land with a derelict barn; it had planning permission for a small, not very exciting four-bedroom home. The site was amazing surrounded by fields and panoramic views of Chew Valley Lakes. We had a dream of making this into our family home but we needed help. Our decision choosing an Architect was surprisingly simple, we spoke to and spent some time with a couple of highly recommended ones and decided without doubt that Rebecca was the person we wanted to design our house. We found Rebecca not only highly knowledgeable but she had such enthusiasm that we honestly felt like she shared our excitement towards the whole adventure.

Our planning application was not without a few problems but Rebecca’s calm and level headed manner got us exactly what we wanted. She even waited for me outside Bath Theatre after the Committee Meeting to tell me the fantastic news that we had been granted full permission.

Our dream house has been drawn up and is ready to build and I can honestly say the design Rebecca has put together is by far superior to anything we ever imagined.

I cannot recommend Rebecca highly enough and would strongly recommend her to any friends, family or anyone endeavouring to take on a big project.

Yours sincerely

Mr & Mrs Bernstein

We bought an 'unusual'  looking house in a stunning location and had the need to extend to create an annexe, and at the same time try and resolve the odd appearance of the rest of the building. R.D. architects came up with a solution that will transform this odd looking house into an interesting and bespoke structure sitting in the A.O.N.B. and green belt.

Due to R.D. architects design work this very odd looking house will be remodelled to reach its potential and at the same time create a refreshing living space for my family, I cannot recommend them enough.
