Testimonials

From start to finish of our extension project, we have found working with Reality Architects to be a wholly positive experience. Marc Ballard's professionalism, punctuality and attention to detail has been exemplary, and with his creative and inspiring design ideas our home has become a wonderful contemporary living space.

Claire McCleary

Marc's work has been excellent from original concepts through to final details. His originality coupled with his ability to listen and interpret is outstanding. I would have no hesitation in recommending Reality Architects for a top drawer service.

Tim Kerr

I haven't hesitated to recommend Marc to many of my family and friends. It has been great to work with him throughout the refurbishment of our house. He listened carefully to our brief and designed a beautiful home for our family. His patience, sensitivity to what we wanted and common sense helped the build go smoothly from inception to completion, with no significant issues at any stage. Thank you Marc for a great job!

Siobhan Cox

I would be very Happy to recommend Marc at reality architects. He worked with us on Marlborough Park North and came up with a brilliant design which took account of all our needs. He supported us through the project from design to completion. He recommended a great building contractor in MRPx.

Susie Maskell

Right from taking our brief and creating a beautiful home to managing the builders and every aspect of the build he has been brilliant. He’s very calm and truly listens to your brief and what you need and his skill as an architect is clear to see in the design work which has led to a stunning home. Working with an architect like Marc has given us a build that has the level of ‘detail’ and things we just wouldn’t have been able to do such as curved walls, bringing in different levels of light and creating different heights and making the home flow for our space but also suiting a disabled person. The build wasn’t the easiest due to ground levels but working with Marc seriously reduced our stress levels throughout the whole process and we are truly delighted and loving living in our new ‘space’.
