IDSystems, February 2015
We worked closely with Chris Dyson Architects on a number of projects and always been impressed by the attention to detail and the sensitivity shown to both the buildings and the local environment. Their understanding of how to best utilise glazing systems to create light-filled spaces has always been first-class and we are happy to recommend them to any of our customers.

Changed our grade 2* listed un-modernised house into a fabulous family house with space for all six children while retaining the house's charm.

We commissioned Chris Dyson Architects to work on an extension to our home. As creative professionals ourselves we had a clear understanding of our aim, but relied on CDA to interpret that into a house design. They very quickly came up with a scheme sympathetic to our needs and brought their experience and skill to the design to create a sense of space, treatment of light and material selection that is very successful. Their sensitivity to the existing structure and surrounding buildings led to a design that, far from being different for the sake of it, is everything it needs to be and feels comfortable with itself. We are very pleased with the result.
D Button, Developer
We are a local developer and were recommended to use Chris Dyson Architects by the agent who sold us a warehouse in Spitalfields, as they have good local knowledge and have done many contemporary and period conversions. We found them to be a very amiable bunch with some excellent ideas for both modernising the turn of the century warehouse we were developing into three apartments, as well as providing some excellent ideas for retention and restoration of the interesting elements. We found the working relationship very easy and their response time to problems and changes throughout the job was excellent.
Their ideas were both exciting and cost-conscious and there wasn't a feeling of just designing something to spend money or because they wanted to - everything just worked. We would recommend CDA to any prospective developer or home owner and in fact are currently using them on another scheme in WC1.

CDA were extremely professional yet personable and excelled at a good understanding of the clients design needs.
