Mike came out top of the architects that we asked to pitch for an extensive residential reconfiguration and extension. He did not disappoint. He took our wishes and came up with a selection of designs, then was very patient in tinkering away to reach the final plan – which included elements that we would not have come up with ourselves, but are incredibly pleased with now they are built. We took Mike’s recommendation on builders and they have also been fantastic, notwithstanding Covid and difficulties over building supplies etc.

We decided to use Mike’s services shortly after purchasing our house in Lingfield. The house needed a significant amount of work having not been touched for many years. We decided to extend our property out by a further 4 meters at the rear of the property. Mike attended to discuss our options and preferences and quickly put togther some plans. Mike also put us in contact with 4 local, reliable builders for quotations. I found Mike to be highly knowledable and experienced. Planning permission was approved quickly without complication and his knowledge of the local area and trade was impressive. Subsequently Mike has also darwn plans and applied for planning permission for an equine sand school. I would recommend Mike’s services to anyone who is wanting a reliable, honest and efficient service.

Finally got our planning permission over the line after 2 stressful years all thanks to Mike. Vetted a number of architects and so called planning experts along the way, most of them telling me that I would never get what I wanted and to compromise on many of the features we really wanted. Almost gave up on our second refusal but with some tweaks that Mike advised finally got our approval.

Project info: Bungalow to house conversion with large extension (almost 60% of existing footprint). Went from 160 sqm to 350+ sqm!

We were really pleased that we choose MBA for the redevelopment of our house.

Throughout, Mike kept us fully updated, offered creative solutions and guided us through the planning and legal process.

Would happily recommend MBA to anyone wishing to undertake building and renovations work.

Stuart Bell

Mike was very supportive throughout the design process and turned our ideas into something that could be built! He ran a smooth tender process and was on hand to give advice as and when needed. We would be happy to use Mike again and recommend him to friends.

Nicola Lywood

Mike was an absolute pleasure to work with on my first commercial project. He was super professional throughout but without any unnecessary formality, offering great advice and insight where and when it was needed.

I would DEFINITELY recommend using him and his services for any project, and plan to do so for all of my own in the future.


We recently undertook a very extensive renovation project on our house. Mike acted as both architect and project manager for the build. We are extremely happy with Mike’s work, in particular, the manner in which he supported the project both during and after the main build. We were also very pleased with the tender process he ran. Mike is very professional, knowledgeable and reliable.

Richard Bodal Hansen

Mike and team are very helpful and achieved designs that work and planning permission granted. Will definitely be using his services going forward.

Vernon Marsh

Mike provided us with a project management and architectural service. Going out to tender and successfully appointing an appropriate builder. He organised all of our planning applications. He produced a loft design maximising the available space and helped us with a kitchen redesign. He was very approachable and was in contact throughout the build process conducting site visits as needed. We have been delighted with the end result.

Emma Murphy

A real pleasure to work with Mike, he knows his stuff and understood my requirements with some real out of the box options – refreshing! We absolutely would recommend and use him again.

Clive Young

Mike is a very competent, experienced and knowledgable architect. Mike was extremely patient, took time to explain the process and was also flexible. From my experience I will be recommending Mike to others. Thank you!

Faye Deighan

There is just one word to describe Mike – Brilliant! He is a master at what he does, talented and skillful; he almost creates space from nowhere! Mike is patient, he listens carefully, takes time to understand the reason behind the project, the essence of the building and what the client envisions the end product to be. And every time he comes back with a solution that makes complete sense and ticks every box!

Mike is an architect with a soul, he understands that real people live in homes; it’s not just about a building; for Mike it’s about enabling a lifestyle through the creation of fantastic space.

Now that we have found Mike, we know that all our future projects would be incomplete without him. We would recommend Mike to anyone looking for a brilliant architect; you’ve now found him!

Sacha Satyam Patel

Mike is a very pleasant, calm and competent individual to work with. He helped me to get planning permission for an extension on a property in Clapham and to get established use permission for the use of the building as 2 flats.

He also went above and beyond and introduced me to a structural engineer and party wall surveyor who both turned out to be excellent.

Jez Phillips

Mike is an excellent architect. Since setting up MBA he has been able to fully commit to creating beautiful and dramatic homes but not moving away from the need to deliver what is required for all stakeholders

He is now working on the third project for me and hopefully there will be several more

We have employed Mike on two separate projects and on each occasion received a very personal, professional and effective service. Mike has been quick to respond to queries helping us achieve what we wanted. We would happily use Mike again for future projects and recommend him without hesitation.

Ron Gandolfo

We’ve been working with Mike to transform our very dated 60’s house into a beautiful modern home – he’s been great to work with, full of practical advice and ideas from our original idea/concept, through the planning process, selecting and working with our builder, to the final snagging. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to others based on our experience.

Justin Newman

Great service and always on hand to offer advice or help. Mike developed our original scheme into something much better and worked well with our builder. Our build was on budget due to the great teamwork. Mike was keen to get involved if required but did not add unnecessary costs to the build. Very happy to recommend him to others.

Donna Kingsley
