Croft Architecture St Patrick's Roman Catholic Church, Stafford

Improving Accessibility At St. Patrick's Catholic Church 

St. Patrick's Church and school, Stafford, has been a focal point for the local area for nearly 100 years. However, we were beginning to feel constrained by what we could offer the community due to the lack of toilet facilities on site. We wanted to be able to encourage those within our existing church community to stay longer and feel more comfortable, whilst encouraging new people to visit, uniting us all.

We met with Croft Architecture at the church to discuss the issues and our requirements to remodel the layout of the church to incorporate accessible toilets facilities inside the existing building without the need to extend. We were are not familiar with building design and construction and we were immediately impressed by Croft Architecture’s professional and helpful approach. They were there every step of the way throughout our project to offer help and support and provided a very prompt and efficient service.

Without doubt the end result has been praised by many who have visited the church and this came about as a result of Croft’s ideas and input. What also impressed was the overall service from all staff, transparency and accuracy of costs and a willingness to work with us to achieve our ambitions for the community. We are no longer constrained by what we can do and offer as the church and facilities make us accessible to all.

While our project was perhaps small overall compared to some, Croft were professional, delivered a high quality of service with a cost-effective delivery and I would have no hesitation in recommending them.

Croft Architecture An Understated Self-Build With A Sustainable Twist A Traditional Self-Build With A Sustainable Twist

We initially appointed Croft Architecture to extend and refurbish our property, but after our initial conversations about what we wanted to achieve from the project they suggested to have a fresh start and demolish our existing bungalow to best achieve our vision from the land available. We wanted a dwelling where we could enjoy our retirement together, creating a home that was future proof in terms of maintenance, accessibility, and a sustainable natural energy supply.

The team at Croft Architecture listened and understood our vision and we were immediately impressed with the range of ideas they provided and their guidance with regards to a design that would work for us, and crucially, what was most likely get planning approval being on the cusp of a conservation area.

They’ve creatively solved a multitude of problems for us. We now have a light filled, energy efficient, modern home, that’s doubled in size from the existing property. The extra new space raised questions and doubt by the local planners, but Croft Architecture’s innovative and clever approach to the design of our new home enabled us to secure the planning permission we so wanted.

The house is so much better than we had ever anticipated. We now have home that we’re proud to show off, and in fact we’ve had a steady stream of neighbours wanting a tour of our beautiful new home.

Would we recommend Croft Architecture? In an instant! They have been a delight to work with, the team have been both professional and fun and they have always responded to our queries in an efficient manner.

They deliver a first-class friendly service and we would highly recommend them to anyone.

Croft Architecture Extension & Renovation - Transforming a Dated Detached into a Stylish & Unique Forever HomeHome Extension and Renovation, Home Owners

Working with Croft Architecture has been an incredibly positive experience. Their creative design work has helped us to completely transform the property by expanding the space to turn it into a more modern home for the future, while retaining some of the 1930’s charm.

Their creative design work has helped us to completely alter and extend the layout of our property to address the need to connect the house to our garden, and to create a series of spaces that work for us as a family.

The design of the house has changed our lives! We now have a light and airy modern space that’s perfect for our daily life and wonderful for entertaining our extended family, especially with the full length bi folding doors opening out onto the garden. We love to have family and friends around and we wanted an open plan lifestyle with the ability to tuck away into another room or corner if we needed to. During the planning stage we could visualise our family congregating around a large kitchen table, and now it’s become a reality.

Throughout the project, the team at Croft Architecture have listened and advised us well, they’ve been meticulous in their attention to detail and solved problems imaginatively. They have been a pleasure to work with and we couldn’t be happier with our new home.

Richard Wheals,

Business Owner, Professional Connection

"I have been very fortunate to have worked with Carl Croft of Croft Architecture. What impressed me about Carl was his professional approach and amazing attention to detail. Being a building contractor myself I understand the value of having a detailed understanding of what the client will want.

Carl just seems to simplify the entire process, his ability to guide clients and give great clarity in every project are second to none.

Quoted from my quantity surveyor, "The best drawings and specification he has seen in over 4 years". I mean, when you have a detailed specification you can price the job correctly and will save money in the long term. With great foundations everything else falls into place.

Carl is very passionate and honest about his work, I would like the opportunity in recommending Carl to anyone who wants a quality design and their hand held through the entire process."
