In others' words

What they say about Bespoke

Many thanks to John and the Bespoke team – you guys have been so easy to work with - immediately capturing the essence of what we wanted in our house design, providing a great end to end service that we could trust and real value for money.  We are delighted with the design and can’t wait to see it become a reality this year.

Nadat wij in 2014 ons huis hadden gekocht zijn wij aan de slag gegaan met John.

Waar we eerst het plan hadden om helemaal nieuw te gaan bouwen veranderde onze mening naar totale renovatie.

John zag daar hele goede mogelijkheden in. Het was een  geweldig samenwerking waar vooral heel goed geluisterd is naar onze specifieke wensen. Ze hebben onze ideeën over ons huis heel goed gebruikt in hun ontwerp waar we heel blij mee waren. Ze hebben aan kleine details genoeg om een prachtig ontwerp te maken voor wat nu ons prachtige huis geworden is. Een prachtig huis met toch de Portugese stijl behouden maar met ook moderne details.We zijn heel blij met John en zijn team voor het ontwerp,de uitvoering van alle plannen en de hele goede begeleiding tijdens de bouw.

Onze complimenten voor het hele team bij Bespoke en wij zullen andere zeker aanraden om contact te zoeken met jullie voor de bouw of verbouw van een huis.

Bij ons zit het er bijna op en is op wat kleine dingen alles klaar maar we genieten nu al volop van ons nieuwe huis wat voor ons echt een paleisje is geworden.

Bedankt Bespoke en vooral in ons geval John en Sandra,jullie kunnen trots zijn op jullie wer.

We worked on a project with John Wilson to put an extension on our villa and have been thrilled with both the result and the process, so much so that we are to embark on another project with him this winter. 

John is easy to work with, full of good and practical ideas but helistens to his client and makes adjustments suited to their needs, wants and tastes.

As both architect and project manager, his attention to detail is exemplary and his ability to foresee problems and circumvent them is admirable. His relationship with his builder is extraordinarily good which makes for an easy process.

As we lived in the UK during most of the actual work, his weekly updates were a great help; we were furnished with lots of photographs and a comprehensive overview of the progress being made. However, John does not trouble the absentee client if he knows he can deal with a problem himself. Any decisions he took on our behalf were with a good understanding of the sort of clients that we were and after he had gathered, through conversation and consultation, our tastes and the use to which we were going to put the building.

John is honest, upfront and realistic about the costs, possibilities and pitfalls that may arise during the works and we always trusted him. He never failed that trust. 

We would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone thinking of any works requiring the services he provides.

I just want to congratulate you and your team for the successful conclusion of our two projects.

Both projects were concluded to our full satisfaction and within a reasonable time frame and cost budget.

The first project – legalizing the existing structures/buildings on the ground as well as the technical survey went very well and paved the way for our purchase of the property.

The second project – construction of a swimming-pool and swimming-pool-area - on a steep slope –was more complicated and needed a host of different ideas to come together. We felt that our cooperation with you, your team and the builder went without a hitch. We appreciated your weekly follow-up on the project.

My wife and I are both very happy with the result.

Give our regards to your team

All the best to your all
