Finally - a young, vibrant, technology rich team of architectural designers who bring not only fresh ideas, but also an innovative approach to the whole design process.
Having explored, what I now refer to as traditional, local architects, including ones we'd used before where we even went to the expense of having drawings made, we found that none of these firms was coming anywhere close to the rough design that I'd drawn up, and indeed one firm even said that it wouldn't be possible. Undeterred we took my scrappy drawing + lots of questions to one of the National Build/Renovation shows where there were over a dozen architects exhibiting, including Model Projects. We sat down and ran through our drawings and listened with interest to the thoughts and approaches from all but two of these architectural firms - we stopped after meeting Model Projects.
Model Projects impressed us there and then with what we viewed was a 'can do' attitude, looking for solutions rather than excuses, that they were using technology brilliantly and had a low risk entry cost for us which essently placed more risk on Model Projects to 'walk the talk' - and 'walk the talk' they certainly did.
Through a combination of great technology, great talent, vision and, we suspect, lots of patience!, Model Projects came up with the design we were looking for, and because they use great technology they were able to work closely with us and model changes, which they quickly brought to life with a few key strokes. They also put their personal emotions into the project as if this was there house, and that they truly believed they had a vested interest in the outcome.
All in all we can't praise Model Projects high enough for an excellent job - we absolutely love the stunning results. Thank you to everyone in the Model Projects team.
