We are all settled into our house now – still quite a lot of decorating to do and lots of new furniture to buy – but really wanted to let you know how much we appreciated your work and how much we absolutely love our New House!
Thank you so much for the amazing job you did. I am so glad that we chose you to work with. You had the perfect combination of brilliant space transforming ideas and practicality for the living space. Nobody who saw the old house can even believe it’s the same place and we are so happy living here.


Rana was our architectural designer for a detached 1960’s house ‘total makeover’ during 2012 and looked at the house for us before purchase in 2011. We have nothing but praise for the way she has transformed the house into a light and open modern space but, more important has been the quality of the relationship with her. From the beginning nothing has been too much trouble and she has gone out of her way to find solutions and make the refurbishment and extension work for us. When we first saw the house with her she said ‘this can work’ and her vision for the end result has been delivered. She quickly constructed useful options and alternatives and was mindful of our budget. We love her relaxed and warm approach and the fact that she has worked with us to create a home that meets all our needs.

We contacted Rana to design our extension to our church hall when we needed someone who would listen to our requirements and produce a design that fitted our environment and to the satisfaction of the local planning authority. She did all that and more: the design was of such quality that our local council gave it an award. The eye to detail plus the ability to work closely with us stood out; moreover the design has proved highly functional in the first year of use. We were very fortunate to have engaged her.

The service that Design with Difference and Rana provided is second to none. We have been very impressed throughout the design process and the on-going support that has been invaluable. We are very happy with the outcome and have built new friendships.
We thoroughly recommend using them if you are thinking about embarking on a property project – regardless of size.

Rana is a lovely person and a fantastic architectural designer…she has very clever ideas that make great  looking extentions and provide good space too….Rana is very friendly and easy going and gives you a lot of her time and puts in a lot of effort to make sure you are one hundred  percent happy with the design….her own house that she designed is beautiful…we would definitely recommend Rana as your architectural designer.

Now back from holiday and wanted to say thank you for all your work over the last Covid year to get the design process done and approved.

We first met almost a year ago when we had the idea to bring the existing planning approval back to life.  We then redesigned and started a new planning cycle which was approved in the spring and then building regs now.
Appreciate your help and engagement and happy to provide a reference for your work.
