JMR Architectural Designs provided me with excellent advice and guidance with the renovation and extension to my property. Julie’s knowledge in the field of architecture, planning and building is apparent and I felt assured by her expertise and design flare. I would not hesitate to use the services of JMR Architectural Designs in the future.
Cannot speak more highly of Julie’s services – she was friendly, very responsive, patient and dedicated to helping us consider all options to design our dream home. Julie went above and beyond at all stages and was clear about costings from the very start (providing a detailed breakdown and timeline). Very impressed with the amount of details included in the drawings – being a bricklayer and having seen lots of plans – Julie’s are amongst the best I have seen! It was lovely to have someone as enthusiastic as us about our home! Thank you Julie.

My husband and I were thrilled when Julie of JMR Architectural Designs carried out detailed architectural drawings and measurements for our loft conversion. Julie’s work and dedication to us were beyond our expectations in terms of attention to details and problem-solving. When our local council didn’t grant us planning permission for our front and rear dormer loft conversion, Julie prepared and submitted a detailed planning referral appeal, which thankfully, due to all her hard work meant we won our appeal. What we appreciated most about working with Julie was her ability to make us feel at ease and her listening skills which exceeded our expectations from start to finish, which kept both of us happy, and delivered the expected results and then some. We would highly recommend Julie of JMR Architectural Designs and wouldn’t hesitate in using her again for our future home designs.

Julie took our woolly; half-formed ideas and aspirations for our kitchen extension and quickly turned them into clear drawings. She gave us 5 different options to choose from. We were also grateful for her guidance and advice as we made our way through the maze of the planning system.

We first met Julie almost three years ago, when we required assistance with designing major alterations to a bungalow we had just purchased. Not having used an architect for many years we used online, yellow pages and other search options to identify possible individuals who we thought could assist us. We held meetings with four architectural design experts including Julie, all of whom made presentations outlining the services and approach they could offer. Julie was the only one who attempted to fully understand our requirements, and asked us searching questions which significantly advanced our thinking of what we were looking for. She was also able to explain her services, the planning process and fees in terms easily understood by us. This persuaded us to select Julie to assist us. We were very impressed with the services Julie provided, which included creating designs to suit our requirements, and managing a successful planning approval process under challenging circumstances, given that a significant number of objections from neighbours were made. Julie’s knowledge of the process and personal contacts with the local authority planning team greatly assisted in achieving a successful outcome. We have subsequently used Julie to assist us in two more projects, both of which have exceeded our expectations and can highly recommend her services.
JMR Architectural Designs provide a perfect balance of professionalism, expertise and friendliness. My recent project requirements were quite unique; Julie went over and above her role as needed. She provides impeccable attention to detail, along with a flare and creativity, that leads to outstanding designs: of which you have a few to select from. She explains the design features, the planning process clearly and answered any questions I had. During my build there were a couple of unexpected challenges; and Julie was always on hand when needed and dealt with these remarkably. Her support and knowledge has been invaluable during this whole process. I look forward to any future projects with Julie: she’s enthusiastic about designing people’s homes – and combined with her intelligence and warmth makes her great to work with. I would definitely recommend JMR Architectural Designs.

JMR are very professional in their approach to design and architecture. All promises were met every time. There was a clear structured approach, including payments, which were set out from the start. Some excellent ideas were put forward with options specific to our personal needs. I’d have no hesitation in recommending them to others
The most heartfelt thanks goes to Julie for realising what was possible for our house renovation – she has designed the space we have and will have to suit us now and in the future. Her ideas and suggestions have made us consider things we never would have and allowed us to have what we’d like as well as what we need. She has been so patient with the many questions that went her way from both of us and we can’t wait to see her drawings become reality!
We are incredibly grateful for Julie’s amazing work. We started out on our renovation project with no idea where to start. Julie really thinks past the 4 Walls to provide a next level design fitting our need
Julie has a fantastic personality which really made the difference to us as we had very limited knowledge of a project of this scale and no idea of expectations. The support & guidance offered really helped us understand the real potential of our property.
Julie’s eye for detail and ability to offer varied alternative designs is incredible. It is an understatement to say she is good! How Julie can articulate some very vague ‘wants and needs’ into a series of in-depth drawings still astounds me!
We are very pleased with our final design drawings and without Julie we would never have known the real potential for our family, including her support through planning and the inovative ideas she discovered from the challenges of planning/building control!
We were highly recommended to JMR Architectural Design and Julie didn’t disappoint. She asked lots of questions to get a clear understanding of how we were going to use the space in our home. Mindful of budget, she gave us several clever, insightful designs that we then tweaked, more than once, to get our perfect, practical but also beautiful layout. Julie made the whole planning process easy, with clear instructions and all our questions answered quickly and thoroughly. Julie is also completely transparent about costs and timescales. With her warmth and genuine excitement about our home upgrade, Julie has made this phase of our project an absolute pleasure. We are extremely grateful and would highly recommend her services.
Julie has been amazingly helpful from the first time we got in touch. We asked for Julie’s help with ideas to make better use of our ground floor space, and she came up with so many ideas that opened our eyes to what was possible – taking into account our budget, suggesting clever lay out changes which was exactly what we wanted. Julie’s knowledge and experience has been invaluable, not least with looking over structural engineers drawings and suggesting simpler solutions, and pointing out mistakes that we would have missed. Costs and process very clear from the outset, and Julie has been generous with her time answering our questions throughout. We would highly recommend Julie to anyone embarking on a similar project.
Julie is a very caring and considerate designer who puts her heart into your house project as if it were her own. She considers your needs as a family and puts this down on paper. She is very passionate about her job and this shows in her work. I would definitely recommend her services and she is there to help you every step of the way.

JMR Architectural Designs has been fantastic through the whole of our preparation phase of our extension. Julie has been professional, caring and thoughtful throughout the whole process. She took into account everything we spoke to her about on the initial visit and even when we needed parts changing on our plans it was never too much trouble. She has guided us through the whole process – and we were very new to this so needed a lot of help!! No question was unanswered or deemed silly by her she could always help. Julie always worked to her time scales and has provided us with lots of very clear and detailed plans, completed the planning process for us and guided us through submitting the plans for building regulations. I can not recommend Julie enough we have been so very impressed with her dedication and thoughtful planning and look forward to seeing the end result!
