What they say about Bespoke

Just a few lines to let you know how pleased we all were with your work on the bungalow at Quinta de Pameira where you designed & managed the restoration of the property our company owns there. The work was completed very satisfactory on time & on budget thanks to your input & sharp eye for detail. Once again many thanks for all your hard work.

John Wilson, Architect, is the author of the architectural concept and projects of my residence, a 300sq metre house, with pool, in Monchique. He created a space which is a joy to live in and fully captured our brief for the architectural concept and design of the house.

The whole process ran very smoothly which made for a very stress free design and construction process.

I would not hesitate to recommend John as an architect to anyone who is interested in commissioning his services as an architect and project manager. I will be happy to give further information on request, should it be required.

Mr. John Wilson was responsible to help me design and built my new House, in Silves. I was very pleased with his ideas, his knowledge and dedication helped us to accomplish our dream house. John handled all the planning permissions and all other design work, plus supervised the building work over the eighteen months through to completion.

I found him to be professional, honest and very helpful throughout the project and would have no hesitation for recommending his company to anyone requiring his services.

I can't say enough good about John's work am I am confident that you will feel the same.

We were introduced to join John Wilson in May 2012 to help us design a new bedroom and en-suite bathroom four our villa Casa Bia in Porches. We were very pleased with his ideas and asked him to take on the project.

John handled all the planning permissions and all other design work, plus supervised the building work over four months through to completion. I found him to be professional and very helpfull throughout the project and would have no hesitation for recommending his company to anyone requiring his services.

We are delighted with our new extension. From the outset we have been fully satisfied by your professional and human involvement in this work. We noted how you carefully listened to all the details we wished to include from the new fireplace, new kitchen to the addition of a Jacuzzi. We also appreciated how you kept us assuring us at each stage that our ideal would be achieved. And so it has indeed come to pass.

You have given us the modern extension we wanted without it taking away from the rustic aspect of our house. In fact it integrates very well and has already met with the approval of many of our friends and neighbours.

Congratulations on a good piece of work. You can count on us to recommend you unreservedly to others.

It is with great pleasure that we write this recommendation for Mr. John Wilson.

We have worked with John Wilson for the past two years. We find John to be an honest, timely and thoughtful professional. During our recent addition to our villa, he was onsite everyday to review the quality of the work and to provide options for correcting emerging issues. His relationship with the Camera was excellent and his understanding of the codes and regulations superb. The project was completed two weeks early and for 5% less than the original quote. He worked closely with our lawyer on the building contract and with the contractor on the plans, engineering structures and options related to improving the final structure. His original plans were perfect and the only surprises were the result of hidden structures by a previous contractor.

Additionally, John has been very willing to continue our relationship and always available to answer questions and find resources for future projects to enhance our villa in the Algarve.

We would highly recommend John for anyone who wants to have a smooth, friendly, cooperative and FIRST CLASS experience during their next construction project.

Hi John, I would like to thank you and all your staff for your help in getting the habitation license for the house. I know it was a job not many people would have taken on.

Many thanks.

I approached Bespoke with an urgent requirement to create a plan for a new-build villa on a [20,000M] plot in Lagoa. The brief was to create a contemporary design that would be certain to obtain planning consent in a short period, and would appeal to the widest possible market. Bespoke made some initial suggestions and we quickly found a design language that would fit the brief. Bespoke were then asked to develop those ideas into plans, drawings and images that we could consider electronically. We only had two face-to-face meetings with the design team, both on Facetime, and Bespoke responded quickly to our input to create a highly satisfactory outcome. Planning consent was achieved within three months of making the application, and with no revisions needed. The budget was agreed up front and no revisions were necessary. A highly satisfactory outcome and at all times we were impressed by the creative skills, straightforward manner and integrity of the Bespoke team.
