What we liked about working with DK Architects was that we felt they listened to what we wanted to do and the dialogue was two-way and creative. This gave us the chance to get the project that we wanted. There were some technically complicated problems to solve, but they seemed to enjoy the challenge, worked well with the Contractor and the project turned-out to be very successful, but more than that, it is a home which works very well for us. We are happy to recommend them.
