Loud have been fantastic. We employed them at a much later stage than we should have done, meaning they had a really tight timeline to work to. They gave us great advice, and got up to speed very quickly. Submitting our planning application within a week, and then quickly turning around our building control and tender documents. They're really responsive in answering questions, and explaining the process in a straightforward way, which as renovation newbies, was a necessity. We wouldn't have got to where we are without them, as there were so many things that they picked up on, that we weren't even aware of, such as party wall notices, design ideas, and ways to make the exterior much sleeker.
I would recommend them very highly, and we would use them again in the future.
Kate from Loud Architects helped us with our planned refurbishment work of our North West London terraced house. We found her initially through instagram where we were looking for interesting design ideas. Upon meeting Kate, she really took the time to understand what we wanted and to understand our design aesthetic. She was able to think of some creative ideas and was very willing to be flexible to our changing budget requirements. Kate was great at handling the rather intensive communications with the council as part of our planning permission, keeping us up to date regularly while also shielding us from much of the heavy back and forth. Overall, Kate has great design ideas, clearly spends time on the details of a project and was able to be flexible when we needed to make adjustments.
I would definitely recommend Kate and Loud - and we will plan on using her for our next project!

After looking at her previous projects We knew she was the best architect for us. We have been really impressed with her recommendations and connections within this industry. She has explained everything thoroughly and her keen eye for the finer details within a budget have been educational. We would recommend Loud Architects because it has been a pleasure working with Kate and we have learnt a great deal from her.
We enlisted the help of Loud Architects for a renovation in our East London Grade II listed terraced house.
We found Kate in an online websearch where we were immediately drawn by her ability to quickly understand our requirements.
Initially we were going to just use her (Kate) for our preliminary services of feasibility and helping with our planning application. After just a week of working with her, we realized we wanted her expertise on the entire project because of her skill, knowledge, and keen design eye. She has put together our tender pack for building construction and continues to help us think of creative ways to stay within budget.
Kate is incredibly organized, puts together comprehensive meeting presentations and notes, design updates, precedents, and 'to do lists' for our own research/sourcing needs.
Her attention to detail blows us away!
We would absolutely recommend Kate and Loud Architects for any architectural and design needs. Once we've saved enough we will be using her for our next kitchen renovation project!
