Client- “We are loving our “new house” and are all very happy. Can’t really remember and think of how we coped beforehand, and counting ourselves very lucky.”


Huntington Road

Client – “It was great to have an architect who listened to what we wanted and helped us achieve every aspect of the vision including the log burner our first architect told us wasn’t possible. He was always pleasant and straightforward to deal with, and a reasonable price. We had a few challenges with the builder but lessons were learnt with good humour. We would happily recommend him.”


Client- “Working with Carve was an excellent experience from start to finish. It didn’t take that long for us to agree a design. Tim managed the planning application as well as the various planning issues, oversaw the build estimates submitted, recommended a superb builder and regularly liaised with them during the build to resolve any issues quickly and pragmatically. As well as a well-designed space inside, the outside details – bricks and roof finishing mean the extension already looks like it’s part of the original 1930s house, not a box stuck on the back. I had never done any building work on this scale before and I felt confident, from the beginning, working with Carve throughout. I’d do it again! And would have no concerns recommending them.”

Kilburn Road, York

Client- “Tim was brilliant from start to finish. He “got” our brief perfectly and produced stunning designs, before guiding us through the planning process. His knowledge of and relationships with local builders meant he teamed us up with a fantastic contractor (a benefit of using Tim that we’d probably undervalued), and was continually putting in effort during the project to make sure the details were right.

He’s an excellent communicator – very clear and on point, which we appreciated. His costs were clear and reasonable. He was a pleasure to deal with every step of the way. We couldn’t have wished for a better architect and we’d recommend Tim and his colleagues at Carve to anybody, without hesitation.”


Spring Cottage, Kelfield

Client- “Our architect at Carve, Tim, listened carefully to objectives and came up with several sketch ideas for what could work using three dimensions, as the physical space was an important consideration. He developed these and was very patient as we deliberated on the ensuing iterations. Finally we agreed on our favourite option, and we were very happy with it, which turned into excitement as we saw our joint vision coming to life on the building site. Carve have a very customer-focused approach, and we have recommended Carve several times since. Thank you to Tim and the rest of the team at Carve.”
