Since Uche remodeled our Wellington bungalow in 2009, we’ve had a Lotto win fantasy – if we won the big one, we’d fire a chunk of money to Uche and give him free rein to design us a beautiful space to live. That fantasy is ongoing, but a move to a not-quite stunning house in Whangarei gave us a chance to get a little of the Uche magic. His vision transformed our kitchen/dining/entrance/bedroom space into a usable area that really takes advantage of the setting and is in keeping with the rest of the house – and now the whole place is stunning. We’re still buying that Lotto ticket every week though!

Planning a renovation is exciting, but also stressful. Often you kind of know what you want, but are not sure how exactly it will work with your space. Uche walked us through all the steps, explaining and advising how best to get a good estimate of price and how the consent process would work. In terms of design, he is more than happy to come forward with his own concepts, help you work through tricky layout issues and also to step back, if you have a clear idea of what you want. He will then convert these ideas and concepts into concrete plans, including digital 3D models, so you can see exactly how they would work in situ. I would have no hesitation in recommending Uche to others needing architectural services.

Uche is very easy to work with. He took the time to understand what I needed out of the project. His ideas were fantastic. When I bought the house, I had no idea what a huge change Uche could make to the property. He has cleverly retained aspects of the property that add value and built a new house around it. He has also impressed me with his strategic focus on project delivery, having a builder and Quantity surveyor involved in all aspects of the project to ensure that we keep to budget.

Uche sat down with us and helped us define what we wanted and the turned that into an amazing concept. We loved that it all came in on budget and he was great at managing the build process and negotiating with the builder for us. We have had a fantastic result and really love the house that Uche designed for us.
