"We worked with Flockhart Architects on a major renovation of our 1930s bungalow. Alex was the lead architect on the project but we also benefited from very helpful inputs from Amanda along the way. Alex gave us confidence from the first time we met him to discuss options to upgrade a tired and unusable attic space and we have been delighted with our decision to work with him and Amanda.
Alex guided the project through all stages from initial concepts to build including the development of a range of options for our consideration, planning and building warrant applications, tendering and the appointment of a builder, and project management of the build itself. Alex is creative, knowledgeable and diligent, and provided excellent advice at all stages of the project. The drawings he produced were excellent, showing his real attention to detail, and gave us confidence that the work would be undertaken exactly as intended. His role as project manager during the build phase was invaluable, his excellent professional relationship with the builder being a major contributor to a successful and stress-free project completion.
We are delighted with the outcome, and while we do not usually make recommendations, we would have no hesitation in recommending Flockhart Architects."
KAREN NESS - ATTIC CONVERSION, CLARKSTON
"Amanda was incredible from start to finish. We live in a period property that is situated in a Conservation area so we were very aware that planning consent might have proven difficult. She listened to what we wanted and took time to research and present us with a number of possible solutions. Amanda and Alex gave us ideas that we hadn't thought about and we ended up with a design that was beyond what we could have hoped for. Amanda made very useful budget recommendations and was honest with all her feedback and input. The attention to detail and appreciation for design and practicality was always evident. I would recommend using Alex and Amanda to anyone."
"Extension to house and alterations to inside, including installing new bathroom and kitchen and refurbishing shower room. Amanda has been very attentive and thorough and her attention to detail has been excellent. We are extremely pleased with the result and would happily recommend Flockhart Architects to others."
MS HUNTER - FARMHOUSE RENOVATION AND EXTENSION, COLLIN
"From the moment we met Amanda to discuss the project we knew we wanted her to design and oversee our extension. Amanda spent time really understanding our needs and expanding our ideas. Her concept drawings immediately brought these ideas to life and she worked with us to incorporate the changes we wanted. Amanda’s attention to detail and desire to make sure everything works from both an aesthetic and practical perspective is phenomenal. Knowing that Amanda was overseeing the whole contract and build process gave us great comfort and the overall result is that we have a new space that exceeds our expectations. We have no hesitation in recommending Amanda."
MR P CASEBOW - SUN ROOM EXTENSION, DALBEATTIE
"We worked with Alex on a project to remodel our farmhouse in Dumfries & Galloway with the addition of a large glass and zinc garden room. Now we are enjoying and loving the new space we wonder why we hesitated for so many years to start the project. Alex helped us create a space that is contemporary, functional and sits naturally amongst its surroundings. His design skill, understated and calm nature, guiding hand and quiet determination throughout the project was central in translating what was an aspiration for us into a reality. He also brought it in on time and on budget."
MR M FOGDEN - THE CHEESELOFT, KIRKCUDBRIGHT // designed whilst at simon winstanley architects //
“I would highly recommend Alex and Amanda of Flockhart Architects. Alex and Amanda designed a house for us in Dumfries and Galloway and guided us through the planning application process. They proposed excellent ideas and options while at the same time they were open to listening to us and incorporating features that we wanted to try to include. They also were considerate to the financial expenditure and advised on cost saving options without losing quality. We found Alex and Amanda very helpful in going out of their way to make the design and planning application easier than it might have been and went the extra mile for us. They were good to communicate with and were very patient with our limitations. They were a pleasure to work with, I would happily work with them again and I have recommended their services to family and friends.”
MR E FISHER - NEW BUILD HOUSE, ST.JOHN'S TOWN OF DALRY
"I appointed Flockhart Architects to carry out a feasibility study and initial design for an internal staircase down into my garage. The study was carried out to the highest quality and at a very reasonable cost. We were provided advice on sourcing and contracting with potential builders for the work inclusive of advice on planning and building warrant. I would recommend Flockhart Architects who provide a very professional service."
MR D ROBERTSON - HOUSE ALTERATIONS, PATTERTON
"We appointed Flockhart Architects to carry out a feasibility study and 3D model of a sun room extension onto our 1980’s bungalow. They provided us with a number of options which thoroughly explored our brief and initial ideas. They gave us advice on approximate costs, programming and the planning application process. We were very impressed with the outcome of the study and the design which exceeded our expectations We have no hesitation in recommending them."
MRS P NICOLL - SUN ROOM EXTENSION, ANGUS
"From the initial meeting through to final approval, everything went like clockwork. We were kept fully informed of developments by Alex and Amanda as the project progressed. No surprise additional costs or additions. A very professional and thorough service even in a pandemic! We are very happy to be able to use a local company and get superb results.
