  • We had a specific design in mind when doing the remodel/extension of our home. We spoke to a couple of Architects and after initial consultations, we plumped for Ian McGregor of McGregor Garrow Architects as he knew just what we were trying to achieve. The design process so far (we are currently awaiting the Building Warrant) has been really enjoyable, with Ian guiding and advising us and answering the constant stream of questions we have with the utmost patience! His knowledge has really helped enhance our initial design for the better and we now just can’t wait to get the build started.

  • We hired Ron to look into areas around our farm for possible planning permission, the areas were quite challenging but Ron was happy to step up to the challenge. He took time out to visit our farm and gave his honest feedback. I have no hesitation to recommend Ron McGregor and his team at McGregor Garrow Architects.

  • The transformation is fantastic. We are so pleased that we came to you for the design side of things and the new kitchen/living space is amazing!

  • We are really happy with the work that has been carried out and when we initially thought about starting this process I don't think we could have envisaged what we have now.
