I didn’t know it is possible to fall in love with a house until I lived in one designed by architect Sophie Bates.
Sophie sets the bar for contemporary architecture that is distinguished, practical, embodies harmonious internal flow, as well as great structural design. For us Sophie took a 1960’s bungalow and turned it into a modern grand designs eco house.

It has been a total joy working with Sophie. She has this wonderful balance of creating a modern architectural masterpiece whilst making the client feel very much part of the design process. Sophie has a talent for interpreting what our house looked like in my head and making it come to fruition. A day doesn’t go by without us reflecting on the incredible home Sophie has created for our family. Sophie designed an extraordinary space, a bespoke house for life.

From our first meeting with Sophie Bates, she came to the table having thoroughly researched the house we wanted to remodel, the area and the local planning history. This attention to detail continues with Sophie in every aspect of her work. This is a reflection of Sophie’s other strength, her diligence managing and delivering a build from conception through planning, contracts and construction to a high-end specification."
