"I spent a lot of time looking for an Architect, reading online reviews, I then decided to look on the local planning portal to compare drawings & I came across Morris Architectural Design. So professional, friendly communication, great attention to detail & worked many hours to ensure everything ran smoothly. Planning was approved & I cannot praise Nathaniel enough, absolutely fantastic service. Would highly recommend!"

"Nathaniel is a breath of fresh air, not only for his precise and timely professional expertise but also for his excellent communication skills. All architectural professionals that I have dealt with are good with the technical stuff but not so good with communication. Nathaniel always keeps me updated with progress (or lack of, when dealing with certain local authorities) and I never have to chase for an update. Nathaniel is highly recommended and I shall be using him much more in the future."

Hugh O'Rourke, Tenanted Operations Manager, Heavitree Brewery PLC

"My wife and I enlisted Nathaniel’s services to design a single storey wrap around extension for our 1930s semi detached house in Bristol. All in all, the service he provided was second to none, and moreover an absolute bargain!

Nathaniel was efficient in conducting his site visit and was swift to turn around his initial drawings for our consideration. From start to finish, his email responsiveness was more than we could have hoped for when we chose him to oversee the design for our project; he replied within 6 hours to every email we sent him and was happy to accommodate our requests, questions and alterations throughout the whole process.

Nathaniel was a complete professional through all our interactions, offering us a range of options and sourcing a range of quotes for design features, structural engineering work and building regs applications. What we (as complete building project novices) valued more than anything were the reassurances and explanations that he offered us at every stage of the project.

Overall we could not be more happy with the service that Nathaniel provided. His plans are crystal clear and our builders are entirely happy to work from them. We cannot recommend him highly enough!"

"Nathaniel is an absolute pleasure to work with both over email and in person. Nathaniel has visited my property and produced drawings which have just been approved by planning. We’ve had many conversations over email, adjustments have been made and ideas discussed. He is knowledgeable, professional and friendly. He responds to emails within hours! I can’t rate him highly enough. I look forward to working with him as my project continues."

Highly recommended."

"Nathaniel is a very conscientious person. He's got me through to full planning permission and is most processional. He answers emails very quick and is always at the end of the phone. He is there for you every step of the way. His fees are very reasonable and the standard of service is beyond my expectations, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him."

"Perfect service throughout the whole process of designing and planning a large extension.
Very reliable and professional, highly recommended."

Private Residential Client, Single storey rear extension, Newton Abbot

"I employed Morris Architectural Design to guide me with obtaining planning permission for a change of use, and this was successful.

I had a few architects get in touch and the reason I went with Morris Architectural Design is because he gave a very clear breakdown on costs.

Another firm did as well but others were vague, whilst others just chewed my ear off on the phone for 30 minutes and basically wasted my time.

On initial inspection of the quotation it seemed to be the highest quote but upon examination it wasn't; it was just that they had considered absolutely everything whereas others had carefully omitted some of the costings in order I think, to artificially give a lower quotation!

The quotation came back in good time, and importantly he stuck to it.
He set out time frames for complying drawings etc and stuck to these as well, he replied to every email normally within 24hrs but often within minutes, always polite and courteous, despite my flapping on occasions.

Came out on a Sunday to measure up and do the site meeting.

Other aspects of the planning process involving other firms; topography for example were all dealt with on my behalf and he shopped around to obtain the best prices as these could vary by hundreds of pounds.

He dealt with all the planning application process and the officer.

Personally I wouldn't even consider another architect and if you're reading this; you can rest assured you are in safe hands with one very professional, polite and lovely guy who will give you his full attention."

"Nathaniel Morris is friendly, helpful and very professional to deal with. Drew up our plans without delay, made changes speedily and without quibble. We really appreciate it. I would definitely recommend him."

Private Residential Client, Residential conversion of former conservative club, Torquay

"Nathaniel provided planning drawings for a garage rebuild to become an office/ bedroom and workshop.

From the beginning he was very quick to respond to my questions. He provided a very detailed breakdown of the costs of his services for each stage but also an idea of the other hidden costs you may encounter (ecology, structural engineer etc). This gave us a great amount of understanding about wider costs before we proceeded.

Nathaniel is very approachable and listened to our requirements. He was quick to turn our ideas into drawings we could look at and amend.

He went above and beyond in helping us find some builders who could do the work, being a soundboard for any comments made by the builders about how it will be done which was great and reassuring.

He has stayed engaged in the project whilst it has been built providing additional help when needed and really wants to know that we are happy with the space, how the builders are doing etc which is a very nice personal touch."
