messageRecommendation: Architects Green & Teggin
Posted by Hobbs76 09 July, 2014 18:52

Hi everyone,

I wanted to recommend our fabulous architect Jacqueline (from Green & Teggin). She designed a STUNNING rear extension for us which we are really happy with.

The brief was challenging as we had major light issues with our neighbour so for her to overcome them easily was such a relief. Jackie came up with clever, simple and creative solutions which doubled our living space.

When I started looking for architects, I decided to hunt around as I wanted to be sure of finding someone that was creative and could provide effective solutions for our light restrictions. I ended up meeting with 5 of them and explained our challenges and brief. Most of the architects I met didn't fill me with confidence. I was worried they wouldn't design anything that our neighbour would be happy with and most didn't even follow up with me after our initial meeting. However, Jackie gave me so many ideas in our initial meeting that I knew she was the one. From that meeting on, we went back and forth with various designs which our neighbour signed off and we were very pleased with.

We've just had planning approval so we are very excited about the next stage which Green & Teggin are also helping us with.

If you are looking for an architect that really understands space, light and the intricacies of Victorian properties then Jackie is your lady. Professional and very creative. We couldn't be happier.

Contact me for a reference.

Hi Uns

I called Green and Teggin and was really surprised to find that they charge 250 for a first meeting which is the design consultation - there's no opportunity to meet first to see their portfolio and whether you get on creatively, whether they understand your needs etc

They also said they're really busy and only want a job that will cost 100k build! I have no idea how much the build will cost but they said that unless it's a 100k budget and the job interests them then they're too busy.

Wow, they really must be busy!!

I had a great experience with them and found them to be very helpful. I looked at their designs online before our meeting (to make sure I liked their creative output) and Jackie was excellent with designs and correspondence.

They may be busy, but they are very good.

Thanks Uns

We really appreciate your support, and thanks to everyone on the forum who has supported us over the years, we have been very touched by your comments.

Ninbi, we are really sorry we were unable to help you on this occasion. It is true, we are busy at the moment and we are very careful not to take on more work that we can comfortably handle, as a husband and wife team, to ensure that we maintain a high standard of work.

Ideally, we would like to help everybody that comes to us, and as such, we devised the design/ideas consultation to give design advice at the very beginning of a project, where it can make the most difference and stop regretful decisions being made. The consultation involves one of us coming to your property, discussing your requirements and how you prefer to live, measuring up the areas you would like to change and then drawing scaled plan options whilst there that are realistic for a give budget and show the full potential of your property. We have had very positive feedback about this service.

In general, we take on a new project every six to eight weeks and when we are looking, we do offer free consultations. We will be looking for a new project in the next few weeks, and to vary our portfolio, we will be looking for a slightly larger, or small but quirky project.

We have loved working on our East Dulwich projects so far and look forward to continuing to do so in the future.

All the best

Jacqueline Green

My wife and I asked Jackie and Tom to help us with a complete overhaul of our Victorian semi. They were absolutely phenomenal throughout. Jackie was patient and attentive to us throughout the design process, making a number of terrific suggestions which we ultimately incorporated. Through the tender and build phase, Tom was diligent and thorough in keeping the builders on track, and making sure they executed properly. Their personal approach was really valuable for us, especially as we had never done anything like this before.
Thoroughly recommended, happy to be contacted for references.

Not used Green @ Teggin but like fact they ensure they only take on work that can be managed at any one time. Got badly stung by an architectural company who had a habit of vanishing because too busy juggling different jobs.
