“Llowarch Llowarch Architects demonstrated their ability to interpret our unique and challenging project requirements whilst striving for quality appropriate to the sensitive, world renowned setting of the Tower of London.
We commend Llowarch Llowarch Architects for maintaining a close spirit of partnership with both the client and contracting team, their attention to detail and execution of all phases of the work was to a consistently high standard.
Our objective was to provide world class accommodation to house and present the Ravens and the story of their unique relationship with the Tower of London as a core component of the visitor experience. The project was delivered according to the timescale and within the budget agreed to meet these objectives. “

‘From our first contact to the completion of the project we have had consistently courteous and sincere interest in our situation and requirements. Throughout the process we were confident that we were in the care of an honest and ethical company.
From start to finish we were fully supported in obtaining our desired outcome with which we are very happy. The design process was excellent and what we finished up with exceeded our expectations.
Our preschool children now have a lovely upper floor area which meets their needs beautifully.
Since the completion of the renovation works, we have been approached by many parents and visitors admiring the work done.’

“He (Andrew Llowarch) worked very closely with the team from the local authority, myself, the Head of Centre and both other managers and staff, listening, discussing and understanding our requirements as well as offering his own thoughts and ideas to develop the design brief.
We had a parallel external environment garden project and he worked with the landscape designer to ensure it complemented the design of the building.
He demonstrated his interest to develop his understanding of the needs of under five year olds and their families by attending a weekend conference in Manchester for Heads and Architects involved in Sure Start building programmes and visiting a recommended new building along with the managers of SACC, and worked effectively with various client groups, including leading the consultation with parents, staff, the health team and local health authority.
He worked efficiently in terms of the architect’s services regarding both the programme and budget.”

“Llowarch Llowarch have created an exemplary housing development on this brownfield site adjoining Highcliffe’s main street. Their transformation of a retail service road into a welcoming mews lane will strengthen the sense of community and visual delight of this part of Highcliffe. This development creates high-quality sustainable homes with excellent daylighing and an innovative range of spatial designs.”

“We are all hugely grateful for your part in getting (the) project to this stage, not least noticing the availability of the grant in the first place. And the nursery has been well served by your advice and work, the quality of the feasibility study was undoubtedly what got the money.”
Chloe Mackay, Chair of Trustees, Collinginham Gardens Nursery
“Three things seemed to stand out for me about Llowarch Llowarch. First the thrilling aesthetic vision with which the practice took a tricky, inner London flat and found a way of transforming it not only to meet, but exceed our hopes; second, the punctiliousness of the practice in project-managing the build; and third, the care and professional decency shown by Andrew, Nicola and the team, who always seemed to go the extra mile to ensure the success of the project. We always felt we could absolutely trust them to do the best for us; no detail would be overlooked.”
“I absolutely love it. What you’ve all designed is clever and beautiful. I couldn’t be more pleased…”
“We adore our transformed flat and look forward to enjoying it for many years to come”.
