Private client, The Light House, Putney
“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."”
Hayley and Stephan
“Sophie understood the brief from the start. She delivered beautiful design ideas and solutions to create a modern family home.
Working with Sophie was such a breeze, timescale was met and expectations were definitely achieved.
I would recommend Sophie without hesitation. ”
Private client, Kingston
“Sophie has transformed my dark London kitchen into a beautiful, light, family hub. The design is thoughtful, mixing old with new to wonderful effect. Sophie has been reliable and professional throughout with a keen eye for detail, an absolute pleasure to work with.”
Maxine, NW London
“ "..by designing and getting permission for the only new modern house in the whole of the Ewhurst as far as I know and one of just a handful in the area...your quite confidence had us daring to believe, your clever design and hard work paid off. I think the planners can see your vision, arguments and I agree with them."”
Charles and Amy
“We commissioned Sophie to work magic on our very rundown property. We had a few ideas of what we wanted but Sophie added so much more imagination, ideas and flair to our project. She was always punctual, got great quotes for all the work, and all round did an outstanding job. We will most definitely engage Sophie again the next time we have a renovation.”
“We were told by our builders and quantity surveyor that Sophie was the best architect they had ever worked with and seeing our beautiful home now I would say they were right. Her vision and ability to execute it into your home is truly amazing. We would recommend Sophie to anyone. ”
Meg and Dave
“You were brilliant, understood what we wanted to achieve and delivered beyond expectations”
