Mrs J. M. Gillson

Working with Mint on the plans of my two houses was a pleasure. She was very aware of the Green Belt environment they were to be built in, and the plans and subsequent planning permission gained at the first attempt reflected her sympathetic treatment of the project.

Mints plans were innovative, but also took account of the practicalities of family living. The buildings themselves were attractive with a contemporary twist on a traditional rural model. The houses are something I would be proud to see built on land I have had a long and happy relationship with.
Mint was very approachable and open to any ideas I had to contribute, she was always available and updated me constantly.

Janice & Michael Chadwick- Miller

From our first correspondence, through creative plans and ideas, sourcing within our budget, appointing builders, on site project management and dealing with the complexities of our tight mid terrace site, we felt in safe hands and are so grateful to Mint. Her expert advice and willingness to go above and beyond remit.  It's wonderful to see the design off paper and functioning as a practical, yet beautiful and cool space. We love it and so does everyone else. 

Mr Steve Gardiner

We used Mint to help design our new build home in Harpenden's Green Belt. The ideas, attention to detail and all round service were first class. The end product is all we could have wished for and so we highly recommend Mint Architecture.

Mr James Boyd- Wallis

As well as building a substantial 2 story extension to our house we also wanted to update the whole external appearance of our slightly ungainly 1960s house. We turned to Mint Architecture following a recommendation from a friend.


We were immediately impressed by both the professional service, practical advice and design ideas Mint came up with which maximised the use of space as well as making the most of the sloping site. The final external design transforms the house and the planning application went through without any issues.


Mr Hugh Riddell

Mint Architecture undertook the design and management of a major renovation of our London penthouse flat, including re-configuring the internal layout of rooms, decorating and furnishing the internal areas, as well as designing the configuration and furnishings for the external terraced areas.


We are very pleased with the outcome of this work as well as the way it was executed.  Proposals were creative and practical, with all proposals and ideas being well researched and presented.   The programme selected was accurately priced and the implementation, including managing builders, furniture makers and gardeners was very effectively carried out.  As a consequence, I would highly recommend Mint Architecture.

Mrs Sarah Burnett

Mint designed a fabulous contemporary extension for our listed manor house, which we absolutely love.  It has transformed the house and the way we live in it.  We would absolutely use Mint again and would whole heartedly recommend her.

Mr Nick Cole

We commissioned Mint to create architectural plans for a loft conversion and remodelling of our Victorian house.

We could not have been happier with the creativity, commitment and precision Mint demonstrated throughout the project and the extra mile she went providing recommendations and useful industry contacts to facilitate our project. 


Mint is very knowledgeable, trustworthy and provided all our plans in advance of deadlines and within budget. Importantly she is also very friendly and personable and we therefore thoroughly enjoyed working with her to help create our dream home.


Mrs Emma Oliver

We hired Mint Architecture for our house renovation project which consisted of a two storey extension, single storey side return and refurb of the existing house.


Mint was highly personable and easy to deal with. She produced high quality drawings that were easy to understand, including 3D visual models which really helped us visualise our project.


She listened to our brief and translated this accurately into the drawings - providing us with 4 different options depending on our needs and budget, helping us to choose the best outcome for our family and home.


She handled the planning queries and complexities with ease, meaning the project was delivered on time and with minimal issues. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending Mint Architecture to others.

Mrs Rhiannon Powell

Mint provided architectural services and design to our extension build and should be highly commended for her design and programme management.


Mint has a clear ability to translate a brief onto paper and created a design which sat seamlessly with the original property.


The detail of her drawings was commented on by contractors and made it possible to receive an accurate build quotation. It also helped to ensure that we as the client understood our extension and could go ahead safe in the knowledge it would look as we hoped.


Mint worked well with our contractor to find solutions and help drive the programme to completion.

Mr Timothy Knockton

Mint Architecture undertook the architectural proposals for an extension and works of my Victorian house in London. From the outset Mint provided a very professional service and was also extremely helpful through the process.


We discussed the requirements and Mint developed a number of possible options to consider. The options included some really creative ideas but were quite different, which enabled us to take the best bits and put them into a final set of plans. We agreed on a plan which optimised my requirements and also the budget.


On application for planning Mint was very helpful in guiding us through the process and doing the required research on the council we had to deal with. As a result of this and the quality of the drawings, we got our planning application passed first time round.


When embarking on the structural drawings and the build, the plans gave the contractors a great blue print to work from. Mint provided an end to end service, which provided some great ideas, quality plans and a really personable service. I would happily recommend Mint Architecture to anyone embarking on development work to their home.
