I thoroughly enjoyed working through the design process with Johnson Design Partnership. They explained what was required each step of the way and achieved Planning Permission for my Paragraph 79 / House, first time! (Resolution to grant consent).

I would always recommend Johnson Design Partnership to anyone looking to create an Architecturally exciting project or indeed another successful paragraph 80 house.

We have used Johnson Design several times and have always found them so helpful, efficient and professional. We are presently using them for a complex multi-building design and Vic has brought such vision and interest to our options. Our views are always taken seriously (something a previous architect we had dealt with didn’t do) making you feel very involved in all designs and decisions.
We would highly recommend this company regardless of how big or small your design is.

I have recently finished my third project with Johnson Design! Two at my work premises and one residential. Matt Spinks is great to work with and always has great ideas and attention to detail. Will come back for any future projects 🙂

It’s a refreshing change to have such good service these days. I really have no idea how your prices compare to other practices, but on the face of they look absolutely fine and look perfectly fair & reasonable, and if I’m honest, pleasantly surprising.

Once we found Johnson Design we didn’t consider looking anywhere else. They offer such a professional and comprehensive service which made the whole process of extending our house totally hassle and stress free. We had some brilliant designs which were exactly what we wanted and from there they helped us with all the small and big details and to find the right builders for us. They were on hand at any time to answer questions and queries for us and to communicate with the building company on our behalf. Their advice at every step was so helpful. Our double storey extension is now finished and we couldn’t be more happy with it.

We would highly recommend this team without reservation.

Many thanks to Johnson Design for delivering exactly what we wanted: A bright, flexible, modern space which brings the garden and the lovely views of the upper Corvedale into our home, without losing anything of the character and warmth of our historic stone farmhouse. The family home of nearly 30 years has been greatly enhanced, giving a perfect blend of old and new, and the perfect venue for entertaining and family get-togethers. The extension was the proud focus for our wedding celebration and garden party for more than 100 guests over the Bank Holiday weekend, and bought in more admiring comments than we could count!

We had plans done ready to go in case we got funding for my Gp surgery extension/ refurb from NHSE. This came very last minute with stipulations to use it before the end of the financial year. Johnson Design got all the necessary people in place and finalised quotes and palms in a very short timeframe and ensured that all conformed to NHS standards so that all went very smoothly. This involved ensuring that we could work at the site in portacabins.

The patients love our new building and the work thankfully enabled us to function very successfully through Covid.

“We wanted a small extension to the rear of our property, to create an open-plan kitchen dining area. Vic and Matt helped us understand what could be achieved ticking all our wish list and more by also adding a utility and downstairs toilet creating a space we didn’t think was possible. They supported us at every stage of the project through to completion, providing their expertise every step of the way, making the whole process painless. We are really pleased with the result, turning our house into our dream family home.”

We looked at a couple of different Architect Practices whilst deciding on which to use for our house renovation, and immediately warmed to the team at Johnson Design Partnership Ltd. They were smart, professional, and following a visit to the property issued us with a comprehensive plan… We were both very impressed at the understanding and the detail that had gone in to finding out exactly what we wanted… Johnson Design Partnership handled the tender process with the Building contractors and again we were very happy with the choice that we made…. There was nothing left to chance and the whole team were a pleasure to work with… We really are very pleased with how the house was transformed throughout the five months that the builders were deconstructing it and then reconstructing it, and the end results are amazing, we love our home, and would and have recommended Johnson Design Partnership to friends and family alike

Our project was not the biggest in the whole grand scheme of things but Vic approached the design brief with enthusiasm and Matt guided us through the process, as project manager with patience and good advice. We were pleased that Johnsons Design Partnership are prepared to work on smaller projects as well as the bigger more flamboyant ones. We are really happy with the finished result.

I have now been living for two years in a house designed by Johnson Partnership. Matt Spinks and his team were our main contacts and we were delighted in the way they handled and developed our brief. The test of course is whether the house works as a home in winter and summer. This Johnson design passes the test with flying colours: the house meets all of our requirements for a comfortable, warm, airy and modern home.

Johnson Design Partnership is a forward thinking and progressive Architectural Practice with a track record of successful projects to date. In my experience they always deliver to time scale and within budget and they bring a flair and innovative style that makes them a pleasure to work with I would have no hesitation in recommending them for future projects and particularly those involving difficult or complex Planning issues as they have proved in the past that their careful and considered strategic approaches to their projects and the needs of their clients ultimately ensures positive outcomes.

Our garden is long, narrow and lies along a steep, exposed slope. It is difficult to do anything meaningful with it. Vic Johnson and Andi Clews have developed plans for our garden which should result in something very special, with stunning entrance, privacy and exciting trails throughout the garden. Can’t wait to see it completed!

I have been involved with Johnson Design Partnership for some time now and my project with them began in March. I have been so impressed, in particular, with architect Matt Spinks, with his/their attention to detail, their inspiring ideas, and their attitude that nothing is ever too much trouble. They deal with things both promptly and efficiently and both myself and my daughter whose property it will be, and also to reside in, are so excited about the finished result.Cannot recommend this amazing company enough. Creating a new build like this, originally stables, can be a stressful time but this most professional company have succeeded in making it less so, Matt is always on the end of the phone or in person when needed. Thank you Johnson Design Partnership!!

We love this house and it is a testament to your skills that it works so well for us. I am hoping that you will be able to help us again when (if) we succeed in buying the run down (and badly designed) bungalow we want – I will be in touch soon, I hope

Dealing with Johnson Design is very easy, the team are fantastic and really know how to bring projects to life. I’ve dealt with Matt on many projects, his knowledge and understanding is incredible. I highly recommend Johnson Design.

“A definite recommend! Matt and his team have worked tirelessly with us on our project over the last 3 years. I think it’s stretched everyone and every aspect of the planning process, matt and his team have been happy to research, find and negotiate tweaks throughout to get planning permission done.”

We engaged Johnson Design 4 years ago at the start of a big renovation and new build project. Matt Spinks has always taken our ideas or vague notions of an idea and turned them into something innovative which is both attractive and practical. We were delighted with the final plans which went straight through planning permission, even though part of the project was a Grade 2 listed renovation. As a project manager Matt has also been first rate and thoroughly supportive. We would not hesitate to recommend Johnson Design.

Thank you very much for going to the trouble to find this out for me.

It’s been a feature of your service to us that you’ve consistently gone the extra mile.

It had taken eighteen months for us to decide that we would re-locate to the ‘Strettons’. Moving house for us meant also moving an established ceramics and painting studio, we were concerned about finding a property within our budget that would also have the appropriate space.

It was obvious from our early property searches that finding the perfect ‘fit’ was very unlikely, so we took the opportunity to visit an open information weekend run by Johnson Design Partnership. We were immediately encouraged by what we saw and once we had purchased the property, we invited Johnson Design to visit and take a look.

Our original idea was to do a loft conversion as planning permission was already in place, but after a couple of exploratory meetings it became clear that this was unlikely to exploit the position of the property to its best advantage or indeed answer our need for comfortable bespoke studio space. These design conversations helped us focus on the true potential of the property, gradually the idea of a glass link between the original house and separate garage emerged as the way forward.

The final result is overwhelmingly better than we imagined it might be. ‘The Link ‘ has already become a creative centre, providing a light and airy space connecting inside and outside areas from both studio and house; not only is it a functional dining and living area but a truly peaceful and contemplative place to soak up the stunning changes in light of the sky and the landscape which surround us, but also a space to dream and imagine – a painting or ceramic form in the making?

As well as our thanks, we would like to add our congratulations on steering our application to approval first time – with no hitches or refusals! This success, we feel, must be a result of your skill, expertise and carefully timed discussions and consultations throughout the planning process. – We have no hesitation in recommending your work.

I highly recommend using Vic Johnson and his team at Johnson Design Partnership Limited, who have been appointed to create exciting designs for our new home and to lead the tendering and construction process. Vic and his colleague Becky Bradley have used their considerable depth of knowledge to develop exciting designs and are providing very helpful guidance as required through the decision-making process, whilst also focussing on projected costs and optimising the use of our available budget.

We would recommend Johnson Design for those wanting to extend their home. They came up with an original concept and layout, moving the stairs was something we’d not even considered but it works really well. They then worked with us to accommodate our ideas, making the design collaborative. They talked us through the various stages of the process and explained everything, also because they handled everything it meant we didn’t need to get involved with the complexities of the planning process.

I have known Vic Johnson over several years during which time he has carried out several successful college projects with his company Johnson Design Partnership. Last year the company was short listed for a major design guide project for the Learning and Skills Council itself. Johnson Designs dedication, efficiency and track record make them ideally suited for a range of College projects and I would have no hesitation in recommending them for such schemes.
