“Douglas and Rosaleen were a pleasure to work with on this farmhouse renovation project. We feel that they achieved a sympathetic balance of the old with the new, while keeping a rustic feel in the house. Attention to detail, responsiveness and speed of turnaround were excellent.
The design process was open and fluid as we progressed towards the final design. Management of the build was difficult because of the relatively remote build location, as well as a number of unforeseen delays, however this was handled with patience and diplomacy by Douglas.
Overall from a design, execution, and oversight perspective I would highly recommend Carson & Crushell Architects. ”
"Douglas ans Rosaleen are a joy to work with. Thy designed a tasteful, practical and beautiful home for us. Visitors to our home are always awestruck at the design and the views from our home, views that were always there but now they can be seen!
We did have a lot of troubles with different aspects, finance, builders etc and this is where they really proved to us how important it is to have an architect to help overcome these difficulties. They were always professional, patient and available when we needed them. I would have no hesitation in recommending them."
"I would have no hesitation in recommending the firm of Carson & Crushell Architects. They were the team behind the renovation and extension of our home and I felt safe and confident in their hands. From the design to the completed build they guided us through the process with care and a high level of attention to detail.
They provided a personal service keeping us involved and informed without any added stress or angst. I was particularly impressed that theywent that extra mile to add value to our project.
It is a pleasure and delight to live in the home they helped us create."
"Doug and Rosaleen are gifted architects who we would highly recommend to anyone needing architectural expertise. Their creativity, passion and attention to detail is clearly evident in their work.
We are absolutely delighted with our newly renovated home. It is bright, spacious, has plenty of storage and the layout is working really well. We thoroughly enjoyed working with Rosaleen and Doug who made the whole process as easy as possible."
"We commissioned Carson & Crushell Architects to redesign our family home. We gave them an open brief with an emphasis on creating a home that functions well for a large family. From the initial meetings right through to final delivery of the project we could not fault their professional approach and were particularly impressed with their attention to detail.
We are delighted with the final product. The layout is vastly improved with a much better use of space and we feel that the house functions very well for us. The finer design details add further to our enjoyment of our redesigned home.
We have no hesitation in recommending Carson & Crushell Architects should they require professional architectural services tailored to their needs."
"Thanks Rosaleen and Douglas, we're delighted to have moved in, the house is even better in real life - Kitchen is a real winner! Overall outstanding job and we are thrilled."
"We were absolutely delighted by the innovative design of the extension which transformed a small and dark kitchen in our 1970s semi into a bright and spacious kitchen and dining area."
"The Factory requested Rosaleen Crushell of Carson & Crushell Architects to provide a Schedule of Condition and Heritage Impact Assessment for our new premises on Bow Street in Smithfield. This was a huge undertaking given the size of the building and incredibly short notice she was given.
Despite these challenges, the reports she provided were superbly researched, of the highest quality, and extensively detailed." We would have no reservations at all in recommending her."
"We love our new living space which had added so much to our home and family life."
