We have thoroughly enjoyed designing our new house with Leaf Architecture & Design. Richard followed a very organised and professional process throughout – from our initial discussions, evolution of the design, gaining planning consent, to completion of the detailed Building Regulations drawings. Richard’s enthusiasm has been inspiring and his attention to detail is impressive. The end result is a beautifully designed home that we expect to achieve all our hopes and aspirations. We have no hesitation in recommending Leaf Architecture & Design to prospective future clients.

I would recommend Richard to anyone; particularly families like us who were seeking a professional but personal service. Richard delivered for us an end product even better than what we were hoping for.

Mr. & Mrs. S Thomas – Church Langton

We found Richard to have an excellent understanding of what we wanted to achieve and his designs really gave us a new perspective to how we could deliver it. His excellent understanding of the planning process also meant we sailed through planning with very few problems. We would happily recommend Richard.

Having used Richard on our own house we appointed Leaf Architecture to work on a new build housing development for Sandrion Ltd. This was no ordinary task because the houses already had planning but the spaces, flow and external character needed a redesign without altering the footprint. Richard comfortably met the design brief and I am sure this has helped the project to be a major success.

We have found Richard Norwood to be exceptionally professional in dealing with a number of projects on the Welland Business Park. He has always been extremely efficient and hard working in achieving the desired result, which is quite rare in this age.

Tony How - Market Harborough (Valley Way) Estates Ltd – Welland Business Park

We used Richard to redesign our house and extensions. Richard had that instant spark and enthusiasm that we were looking for and it was reassuring from the start that he understood about the way we wanted to use our internal spaces. This transpired into a modern open plan high performance house, which has changed the way we live, yet we have retained much of the original character.

Mr. & Mrs. Merrion - Stanway House, Croft

Richard has been responsible for designing and drawing up plans for a conversion of my garage and workshop as well as a single storey enlarged kitchen. The planning application was passed and the new development is now underway. Throughout the design and planning Richard has been efficient and thorough. His meetings with Harborough council prior to the planning application were productive and I am sure helped the application to go through speedily and successfully. I was kept informed of developments at every stage with emails and regular written information. Richard was prepared to make visits when helpful and was always kind and understanding. Throughout the whole procedure he always acted in a professional manner. I can recommend him to any prospective clients.

Mrs Jefferys - Forge Cottage, Billesdon

We engaged Leaf Architecture following a conversation with someone who had a contemporary kitchen extension designed for them! My husband and I have a construction company plus experience in property development so feel we have a good understanding of the design and build process but wanted to be challenged in our thinking and to achieve an altogether higher level of home. Richard has not only challenged our thinking but skilfully handled any differences in opinion and dogmatic decisions. To start we were determined to remodel our 1950’s bungalow - Richard was able to present a well thought through (design and economic) case for demolishing our existing house which we very quickly bought into and our relationship has gone from strength to strength. Leaf spend the time not only listening to our wish list but taking the time to understand our behaviour in every other area (i.e.: work / home / family / leisure etc) and perhaps most importantly our surroundings & environment. The result being the design of a unique and AMAZING contemporary home that makes the very most of our surroundings, fulfils our desire for something out of the norm and unique to us and perhaps most importantly gives us the flexibility to use the space in whatever way we need as we intend to spend the next 50 years+ here.
