We have found Bluelime very helpful particularly in relation to designing for a disabled person. They had ideas that we had never thought of. I would certainly recommend them.
Amar has done a great job with really efficient nice drawing. His swift response to our comments is highly appreciated. He submit our planning permission within 2 weeks.
Bluelime have been fantastic with helping us create our dream home. Aga came up with ideas that we had not thought of but fitted in perfectly with what we wanted. We cannot wait to make a start and live the dream. We cannot thank the team enough!
Bluelime should be commended for their patience & helpfulness. Responsive to all requests in a timely manner & conducted themselves in a very professional way.
These guys took over from a previous architect that went AWOL, and within weeks they had redrawn everything to a much higher standard. Any changes were dealt with immediately. We are very happy with all of their work.
Great customer service, called a couple of weeks ago and the lady who answered was very kind and helpful!
Fantastic outfit-hugely professional from day one right through.
Darren was attuned to what we were trying to do, and very attentive to our demands. Dana and Cesare are creative and talented designers. Customer service was excellent-would not hesitate to recommend their services.
We have received a very professional, creative and helpful service so far with Bluelime. They have really come up with some fantastic design ideas for our property and we look forward to making them a reality in the coming months.
We would Definitely recommend this company. The specialised work they offer is above reproach. We worked with Aga and Alin with Input from Director (GLENN). All 3 were invaluable in helping us to come the end design. After numerous designs we settled on the 10th one. This provided valuable insight that as a layman you actually miss, and the length this company goes to to get the end result you want. At no point did they make us feel rushed or felt they were being bothered with needless questions. The response from the team was always within 24hrs to any fears you have. I am looking forward to the end product and satisfied that this team will deliver. If nothing else you should talk to them before you choose to settle with any Architects.
The team at Bluelime Home Design have been professional, supportive, creative and directional in their approach. They provide a comprehensive, all-round design offer and represent value for money. I look forward to continuing to work with them once planning has been secured and my project can start in earnest!
A* service from initial contact right the way through to design sign off. High quality drawings. Very responsive, knowledgable and highly recommended.
We are using Bluelime Home Design to secure overall planning and building control approvals for some interior and exterior works on a 5-bed victorian home. We are impressed by the use of technology to establish a very detailed 'as-is' set of architectural diagrams, which then forms the basis for an iterative design process, which over the course of a few sessions has resulted in a design which they are coordinating the taking through of planning consent and building regs. We are mid-way through the process. Thus far, Bluelime have been very keen to make our design choices a reality and are very responsive to e-mails.
Your ideas brought to life with expert vision.
We would like to thank Bluelime Design for all their hard work, ideas and inspiration and for being so approachable and easy to deal with.
After our initial free consultation and survey of our property by one of their surveyors we commissioned Bluelime to support us with our big project: build above the garage with rear extension and a dormer loft conversion. Our dedicated architect Aga offered us a great support and was always available for discussion and our questions.
Furthermore, I must say that we were extremely satisfied with the design process and the final design submitted to a council. Working closely with the architect we came up with a very interesting proposal. We were able to see the design in 3d perspective views and it helped us to understand better how it will work. We were very impressed with the level of detail on the drawings and thinking behind it.
We would happily recommend them to anyone thinking of starting a building project. Keep up the good work and we wish you all the best successes in the future.
We are part way through the design process with planning permission submitted. Aga has done a great job preparing and developing the design. The process of looking at multiple options and refining has been really valuable and helped us get the plans just right for what we want.
After having a disastrous start with another architect, we were extremely pleased to find such professionalism, local knowledge and efficiency. We now have plans that we are very happy with and are proceeding to planning permission. Every question we asked was answered and each revision was quickly carried out. We feel we have found an extremely professional group of architects, project managers and are happy to recommend them.
Great service from everyone we've dealt with at Bluelime. Very helpful in their design ideas (particularly Aga our consultant) and supporting us in our plans for a loft conversion and single story extension
We are in the process of our plans going for planning permission and we are very pleased with the design and process of our extension for far.
We have been delighted with the service from Aga and the Bluelime team (Feb - May 2018). Creativity, Responsiveness, Attention to detail, Value for Money - all excellent - multiple options for our extension and unlimited amendments. I really feel that they are right there with us on the project.
The bluelime team were really professional and always responded promptly. They do as many designs as you want until it is perfect and come up with a great range of options.
I'm working with Bluelime for our kitchen and garage extension. Aga (the designer we are working with) has some great ideas about the extension, is very patient to adjust the design multiple times to suit our needs and always respond to our queries very quickly. I'm very impressed by their efficiency, the best I have seen. Our project is still at planning stage but I'm sure with the help from Bluelime, this project will be a great success.
Worked with Bluelime on a project for our kitchen extension. They really brought some great ideas to the overall design, were super patient testing and trialling different versions of the plans and overall we are thrilled with the result
Excellent service from start to finish, These are the guys you need, nothing was to much, for Darren and his team.
Dana is very very smart Architectural Designer, with a keen eye for detail and a flair for ideas, many thanks you guys !
We have been really impressed with the professionalism and customer care from Bluelime. They were very thorough with their evaluation of our project and offered 3 great initial designs. They have been very receptive to our feedback and efficient in making the various changes we requested. We have no experience at all in these matters and so really appreciate that Bluelime is a one stop shop and are able to advise us on all elements of the planning/build process and put us in touch with trusted industry experts for various aspects of the project. The presentation of the plans are really professional looking and offer a number of different views which helps to give a clear picture of how finished project will look. We are really happy with our design are very excited about getting started on our project.
Whilst the plans for redevelopment did not come to fruition, our site meeting showed every promise of being handled in a very professional way .I would have every confidence in retaining 'Bluelime ' on any future project .
BlueLime (BL) are simply the best! I'm a mathematician, so I held a competitive process between BL various independent and Architectural firms in London. Are they the cheapest...no! However, I'd argue they are the best! So much so, they have attracted the business of a friend who is a professional developer.
We found Bluelime through a google search of experts in our local area and were really impressed by their work on other properties of a similar style to ours. We were also reassured by the extensive experience of the team and their accreditations to the professional bodies.
Although we are at an early stage of the process, reviewing options and ideas, we have been really impressed by the team at Bluelime. We had two visits to the property to assess the feasibility of our vision, and then to measure up and ask for further details. At all stages the team have listened to, and facilitated all of our requirements and ideas, and have regularly come back with creative and innovative solutions and ideas which we had never considered.
Despite changing our minds midway through the design process and opting for a garage roof extension and kitchen diner, the team at Bluelime were really happy to sit down together and go through the updated requirements. All the team members we have spoken to have been very approachable and reassuring, and it has helped us massively to enjoy the process and significantly reduce the stress involved. We are planning to use their services and expertise for the design and build of our project.
It has been great working with Bluelime Home Design. They have explained each stage carefully and we have been able to ask lots of questions. The initial designs, and tweaks to those designs, have always represented what we have discussed with the team along with some great suggestions from our Architect.
I would be happy to recommend Glenn and Dana .
Very helpful and attentive company, quick and clear communications, definitely recommend them to family and friends.
The beautiful experience started from the moment of first contact. They'll go the additional mile to ensure you have all you need to make your project a satisfying experience. I will surely keep in contact with them for the future.
The service and experience has been nothing but first class and stress free with any questions or concerns dealt with promptly. Would highly recommend!
Really pleased with experience so far. The team have helped us get a great set of plans that we're really happy with.
Glenn and his team came to quote on our project and really brought a lot of value already during the initial discussion (much more than some architects bring after full emgagement). They came up with many ideas and developed a very detailed design proposal, which reflected not only their ideas, but our thoights as well. The price was very reasonable and we would have no doubt in choosing them if the project went ahead (unfortumately it did not, but we still wanted to write this review as the guys did such a great job...)!
Bluelime were good value and very professional. Highly recommended.
If you want your ideal image of a home to come to life then Blue Lime home design are the people you should contact. They were able to help me visualise every part of my house the way I wanted it before we even began the project. The enthusiasm they had was really appreciated as was their vast array of experience in constructing dream homes.
We have worked with Bluelime on several projects. They listen to what you need and are able to come up with some great design ideas that you wouldn’t even think of. When it gets to construction stage they makes things really easy. There is so much detail on their designs nothing is left to chance so we know exactly how much the project is going to cost from the start. That means the budgets are seldom exceeded. Other designers we have worked with in the past have appeared less cost but they do not provide anywhere near the complete service that Bluelime does. When we used to work with other designers we found many of our projects going over budget as corners were cut during the design process with things like the electrics and heating systems not designed out properly. We will not be tempted with low cost design services again and very much believe you get what you pay for. Bluelime will save you money in the long run and we would not hesitate in recommending them for this type of work.
Excellent service, professional and attentive, with great planning suggestions.
I met Glenn approximately 10 weeks ago and the initial discussions; survey and selection of drawings made available to me happened very quickly. No problems in recommending this service. All very seamless and we're now at the drawing submission stage
We approached Glenn a few months ago having read so many positive reviews about his work and we haven't been disappointed. Infact we have been very impressed with the level of service he has provided. His professional expertise, knowledge & attention to detail has been outstanding. He has worked with us to keep the costs down on materials etc. without compromising on quality. The drawings he put together for us are everything we wanted and more, he was able to completely capture our vision on paper and also gave us lots of very good ideas which we have decided to incorporate into the design. Glenn has been very flexible, he has been able to work around our circumstances when had to put the project on hold due to a unforeseen circumstances. We are now at the planning permission stage and I am confident that at the end of the process we will get the approval we are so eagerly awaiting.
After being very frustrated by another architect, Glenn was recommend to us via a friend. From the onset his positive approach and 'can do' attitude was a far cry from our previous experience.
Our build had very specific needs for us and we had previously been told that only some could be met. This was not an option for us. Glenn however, would not be beaten. He met all our requirements with some very innovative designs and clever storage options which not only pleased us but also planning regulators.
We now have the home we desired thanks to Glenn and his team at Bluelime.
Our experience in working with Glenn has been fantastic. We found him not only very professional but his personal approach and caring was very welcoming.
We would highly recommend Glenn and Bluelime home designs as they deliver a very excellent service.
We needed an extension to our house which was to double its size. The project needed a great deal of thought and planning to deal with complicated roof changes and drainage issues. Bluelime handled the project from start to end and dealt with all aspects of the process. Glenn was extremely professional, creative but very functional with the design, listened to what we wanted and made suggestions to areas we hadn't thought of. The outcome is house better than we ever imagined. Thank you for all of your hard work.
Bluelime have helped me on 4 projects so far. Their work is excellent and very creative. I will be using them again on future projects and recommend them to anyone without hesitation.
Bluelime have done several projects with us now. We have found them very professional and attentive. When we were looking for architectural design services we considered several designers at the time. Bluelime were not the cheapest but the service they provided was way more than the others and worth every penny. Bluelime's designs are so detailed and extensive it even included spotlight and plug point positions which saved heaps of money when the build starts as everyone involved in the project knows exactly how much its going to cost upfront. Bluelime even provide budget costs for each design option they do which were unlimited – I think they done about 10 different options with budget costs for each one on one of our projects. They did not charge anything extra for any of this extra work. It was all included. Another designer we looked at charged an hourly rate for work done in the event the planning application got rejected. Bluelime did not charge anything at all they just get on with it and get the job done so everyone is happy. Don’t be fooled by low prices from others, its never as it seems and Bluelime was great value for money taking everything into consideration.
We were very pleased with the service provided by Bluelime Home Design. We converted a bungalow into a full two storey house. Glenn Williams provided us with several design options based on our needs, dealt with all aspects of the planning stage and recommended a number of builders. Overall, we could not fault this company and would highly recommend. We will definitely use Bluelime again in the future.
Glenn's appreciation of the possibilities for our extension far exceeded our own ideas. He successfully maximised light and space in our Victorian property while maintaining the character of the building. He was very supportive while guiding us through the challenging planning process, and managed the building tender process with great attention to detail, which continued through the project management phase. Overall we are delighted with our finished home and would definitely recommend Bluelime.
With a growing family and the need to modernise our house we wanted advice on a possible Loft and Ground Floor extension. After discussing our requirements with a few different architects we met with Glenn from Blue Lime. Glenn was friendly, helpful and really listened to what we were trying to achieve as a family. Glenn suggested a couple of different ideas and then quickly put together some initial drawings. One of the best things about using Blue Lime are the inclusive packages they offer which are easy to understand and mean that Blue Lime take care of everything, from finalising the drawings, to managing the planning application process and initiating building control. Glenn was always available whenever we had questions and was always happy to meet in person or chat things through over the phone. Once the builders had been appointed Glenn would continue to stay in touch to see how things were developing. Planning building works are stressful at the best of times, but Glenn really helped remove the stress from the process. Whether you just need basic drawings or a full service package I would definitely recommend using Glenn and the Blue Lime team.
We needed a much bigger space for our family than our smaller home allowed so decided on a large two story extension with attached garage and utility room. After contacting Glenn at Blue Lime he took us by the hand and did everything we needed regarding the design of the extension and obtaining planning permission. What a relief to have him on board! Pleasant, helpful, reassuring and he got the job done exactly the way we wanted it. A true professional in every way. We already had the builders in mind so just needed the design and planning elements covered. The end result is a beautiful new space in which our young family can develop and grow. It was a pleasure having Glenn and Blue Lime work on our project and I can honestly say that it was because of him that things went so smoothly. Thanks Glenn for all your hard work, ingenuity and creativeness. You have made our home a fantastic place to live in.
We really needed more space for our 2 boys and our existing conservatory area wasn't really working for us. Glenn came to us on recommendation and has been a pleasure to work with. Glenn totally understood what we needed and came up with some really good ideas and various design options. He explained clearly how the whole process worked and really took on total responsibility so we did not need to worry about anything. Now we will have an amazing new house with large open plan Kitchen Diner and Island unit we always dreamed of. Our boys not only have their own En-suites but now have the entire loft area for games and cinema room when their friends come round meaning the rest of the house is free from clutter. If you want to extend your house and actually quite enjoy the process - Glenn is the guy to use. He really cares in getting it absolutely perfect for you and making sure he gets the best he can for the budget you have.
‘We have worked with Bluelime Home Design for several years now and have got to say they are one of the better architectural practice we have worked with. When comparing their costs with others they can seem more expensive at the outset but when you break it down into the component parts they provide, these extra services such as estimating likely build cost, planning permission guaranteed, drawing of all the electrical sockets and lighting etc saves money in the long run and meant there were no hidden surprises or extra cost later during the build. Using Bluelime if you want to know the cost of your job upfront, want an amazing home extension and reassurance that your project is in good hands. It is a service we will be using again.
Glenn is both professional and friendly, follows up on any changes that need doing and answers problems during the build. I didn't go for full project management but that didn't mean he didn't help me when structural changes needed doing during the initial stages.
Fantastic service for a reasonable fee. Accommodating to our needs but also working within your budget would definitely use again.

We appointed Bluelime to carryout designs for a side extension to our period property in Richmond. Our house is classified as 'architectural interest' so we knew it was important to get the right designer on board from the outset. Bluelime were fantastic and really easy to get on with. Nothing was a problem despite us changing our minds several times. They even got the builders in to do the work and took care of everything letting us get on with our own busy lives. What a wonderful surprise when we returned from holiday to find our new home finished, cleaned and ready well ahead of the arrival of our baby daughter! I would highly recommend the services of Bluelime especially if quality is important to you and you want your home extension hassle free.
Glenn’s design of our house extension was amazing. Our lifestyle at home will be so much better now being able to entertain using our new open plan Kitchen/Diner. With a growing family the additional bedrooms, ensuites and playroom have proved a real winner for our children. Glenn totally got what we wanted and designed our house with a real focus on functionality and use. We would not hesitate in recommending his services.
Glenn was very respectful, helpful and appreciative of the fact that I felt I needed a building management company to help and support me in my project. I never felt obliged or pressured at any time in taking up any of the services provided by Bluelime Home Design. He always encouraged me to contact him if I had any questions or if I wanted him to meet up and go through anything. I was always given time and lots of opportunities to express any concerns I had relating to the drawings / planning of the project. I was able to add my own ideas, where I felt I wanted to change something; But, where an idea was not possible, I was provided with clear and understandable reasoning as to why my suggestion or ideas may not have worked or gone well with the overall design of the project, which I was truly grateful for.
Blue Lime Designs are a great company to work with. They are reliable, efficient and assisted us throughout our entire project. Would highly recommend.
Glenn and his team are efficient, polite and respond to your enquiries straight away. They came to visit us twice and produced a Design Report that clearly outlined all the stages and costs involved in our project in an easily digestible way. This Included creative solutions to problems and further expansion ideas. Blue Lime even offered us great discounts. We would highly recommend.
You've come through with some very good ideas
So far Glenn's extensive knowledge and expertise has been invaluable, the designs are perfect and I feel everything we wanted has been incorporated to achieve that.
The build has not yet started but can say that we have been comfortable with Bluelime and Glenn. Very easy to speak with and attentive. Have recommended Glenn to others and we are looking forward to seeing the completed project.
Pleased with the design and specifications
We were pleased with what was produced and found Glenn to be very helpful. He got exactly what we wanted to achieve. We have recommended him to friends.
Very professional service, all our questions and queries answered and explained well
Truly Satisfied with everything so far.
We feel confident that our kitchen and bathroom designs will make our house perfect.
Happy spent the money!!
Very happy, waiting for the next plan
