” Aphrodite was a delight to work with from the beginning to the end of our long project. She was consistently patient with endless frustrations, kept our flagging spirits up, and has a fanatical eye for detail.
Her drawings and plans were meticulous and models of precision. She maintained careful photographic records throughout the project.
She was very effective at supervising the construction work and in maintaining good working relations with the builders and other suppliers.
She was very generous with her time, and I could not recommend her more highly.”Julia & Charles

“Aphrodite took us through all the planning applications, designs, ideas and so much more without which we would not have the living space we now are able to enjoy. It has transformed the way we live as a family.
Aphrodite is incredibly patient, practical, professional, pragmatic, helping us manage the contractors on site, always on hand to advise and support us through the transition and even the stress of living on site!
I would highly recommend Aphrodite who we now consider a friend. It was a real pleasure to be working on such personal plans for our home and I would implicitly trust Aphrodite on any future work I would undertake.”Priscilla & Greg
