What they say about Bespoke

Already at our first meeting with John and our builder, he caught what character we wanted at our dream house project in Lagos.
We only needed to make some minor adjustments, which John and his team quickly changed, then we were done.

The entire construction permit process, which was done in two steps, went smoothly and in record time. This was probably John's merit.

John and his team is very professional and have done a very good job so far. I am convinced that they will follow the construction process very committed when we now begin to build.

A very professional company which we would have no hesitation in recommending to others.

One would normally view living in South Africa and doing a building project in Portugal with some trepidation. However Bespoke Architects and John Wilson took me through the project with great honesty and professionalism.

From producing the plans timeously and getting approvals from two authorities as well as advising me on a suitable building contractor everything went without hitch and according to plan. I will use John again and highly recommend his expertise and vision.

"We were introduced to John by a friend out here in Carvoeiro, as we were hoping to extend our bedroom whilst, at the same time, have the concrete driveway landscaped into a garden to make the full use of the pool area.

From the moment we met, we knew that we wanted to work with John and his team. Throughout the early days, he showed great passion in presenting several options for us to consider. His quotations were always timely, fully transparent in terms of costings and his attention to detail was first class.

Due to delays at the local authority, our project became two phases. The first was the garden landscaping, completed in early summer of 2016 and the second, the bedroom extension, completed at the end of March 2017. Both projects were completed on time, on budget and we have been absolutely delighted with all the work completed. John and his team project managed both projects and kept us fully informed weekly of developments, a huge weight off our minds living in the UK.

We cannot thank the team at Bespoke enough, their ideas, project management and delivery really has made our home complete. In addition to John, we'd like to give a special mention and thanks to Paulo who was diligent and professional throughout. The quality of the workmanship was down to the excellence of Jose Maria and Joao and their teams, all of whom were recommended by John.

We would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending John and the team from Bespoke. A huge thank you from us.
