A Project Finished...well is it ever really finished...
I always manage to find something to paint, rearrange or redo all the time.
Oriel Prizeman Ltd.
Oriel, MA Cantab AA dip RIBA PhD Cantab, is currently the Senior Lecturer at Cardiff University, External Director of Studies for Architecture at Gonville and Caius College Cambridge and Director at Oriel Prizeman Ltd.
I started working with Oriel on the Old Vicarage even before I put in an offer on the house. Renovating the Old Vicarage was a lot of work with many surprises that Oriel took in stride, including my many changes and fussing about details. I am very pleased with the finished product and appreciate all Oriel's attention to detail and consideration of my vision.
Eve Waldron Design
I met Eve in 2009 when I commissioned her to completely decorate my contemporary apartment at Christ View in Cambridge. The Old Vicarage was a very different type of project and one that I wanted to do myself, nevertheless, I knew that Eve would be perfect in designing my window treatments and helping in organizing fabric and color combinations. As we had already worked together she knew my personality, which tends to be a bit nit-picky, and had a good sense of what I wanted. The end product; a warm, comfortable and impressive home!
Chris and Liz Cooke
I first saw the work of Lark Valley Willow in Wickhambrook, Suffolk, where Stephen was brought up. I was impressed with the work, yet a bit embarrassed when the owners came home and found me snooping around their fence.
Liz and Chris are a brother and sister team that bring fencing into the world of art. They did the work surprisingly fast and the finished product is beautiful. I can now have privacy without compromising style.
Cambridge Building Company
There are three partners in the Cambridge Building Company (previously Cambridge Building Collective) Philip Ayton, Alasdair Sinclair, and Stefen Merwiak, however, it was Alasdair that I worked closely with on the project. He was always on site or within a few blocks away working on another project in the Jesus Green neighborhood. Alasdair proved to be just as picky as I am, which was important because the Old Vicarage is all about the detail. He helped me make a tired old house into my dream home. I highly recommend CBC as builders!
Finding the right Landscape Architect and Garden Designer to transform my garden was not easy, and when I met Mike, DipLA CMLI and Chartered Memeber of the Landscape Institute, I knew my search was over. He helped me see far beyond my original thoughts of what the garden should look like and has designed something truly amazing. He is transforming my garden into a place that will provide me years of endless enjoyment. The garden is currently under construction...so watch this space for pictures of the finished product.
