We asked Jonathan and Jessica about their experience of working with Granit on the extension and refurbishment of their family home in Clapham and thank them for their kind words.
In terms of our overall experience, it’s been great. We’re really pleased with the house, and how things have turned out is fantastic.
We talked to a couple of architects but chose Granit because of their impressive portfolio of past work, local knowledge (because they’re just around the corner) and the rapport we built with Ben and the team.
What was really impressive was the commitment, from Ben in particular but also the rest of the team. The fact they were always there throughout the design phases, but probably more importantly during the building works and even afterwards, has been significant.
We had a problem after the building works finished, so we called Granit, and Ben answered the phone. It was late in the evening, but he still popped around and helped sort it out, which was beyond the call of duty; just fantastic.
In fact, the Granit team was always on the end of the phone, always very communicative, reachable and helpful. That was a real bonus.
And then, obviously, the work itself and the design are excellent.
Our experience with Granit’s interiors team was also really good. We had a couple of different designers working with Georgia and then Lisa, and we are really pleased with how it turned out.
If someone is thinking of appointing Granit, I would certainly recommend them. Definitely meet the team, view some of the work they have carried out, and you’ll be able to make up your mind pretty quickly.
