We’d visited a house Peter Davis had designed with many of the eco-friendly features we were interested in, so he was the first choice to design our home.

Our house not only meets those practical requirements, but it is a stylish, comfortable home for which we regularly receive compliments.

The AD Architecture team were great to work with and we would definitely recommend them.
