Commercial - Conversion / New Build

Willie Fisher, Owner & Director
Lynderswood Business Park, Black Notley, Essex

“We have worked with Beata Zygarlowska, Principal Architect.  Beata has been our Architect for a number of years we have always found her company to be innovative, prompt and thorough. In all our work her site visits checking the work of builders has been very thorough which we appreciate. Her patience and diligence with planning departments have removed much stress.”

Heritage - Institutional / Listed Building / Conservation / Energy Efficiency

Claude Warnick, CUCA -
Cambridge University Catholic Association and Chaplaincy / Client

"Beata has been closely involved with Fisher House for over a decade, including in the refurbishment and redesign of the 1960s Chapel, various feasibility studies and ongoing repairs for our Grade II Listed Building, and the preparation of quinquennial repair and maintenance schedules. Most recently, Beata helped Fisher House with a project to make sound a sagging roof in our timber framed building and to renovate the interior of the attic rooms at the same time. She helped us navigate all the various stages of the project, from investigating the problem, identifying the remedial works, obtaining permissions, tendering for a contractor and overseeing the works. At all times she kept us fully informed about what was going on, and was always quick to respond to any questions. The process went smoothly and we are very happy with the results. We would recommend her services without reservation."

Private Residential / Dwelling / New Build 

Professor Geoff Moggridge, Cambridge University / Client

"Beata was the architect for the building of our family home, in the centre of Cambridge.  It was a challenging project – the site was in a conservation area; with a long and controversial planning history and significant local opposition; partly in a flood plain; with signif

icant financial constraints; and an unusual and modern design.  Beata was a pleasure to work with, always receptive to the client’s wishes, but also willing to point out opportunities for improvement.  She oversaw the project right through to completion, including all on-site supervision of the contractors, finishing the project successfully within budget.  Beata combined a strong aesthetic overview of the project with impressive attention to detail and also understood the importance both of a beautiful building and a practical one to live in.  We have now lived in the house for 12 years and it remains a joy to live in.  I recommend Beata unreservedly."

Private Residential/ Dwelling / House Alterations

Richard Short and Sophie Costello / Clients

"Beata took the time to understand the brief on our project and then designed imaginative enhancements to our home, both inside and outside, that stayed true to the unusual style of the original build while also meeting the functional needs of a large family. We are delighted with the results."

Heritage - Private Residential/ Dwelling / Listed Building

Adam Challis, Executive Director, EMEA / Client
Kelshall, North East Hertfordshire

"Beata was a pleasure to work with on our house. She understood our vision and translated it into a deliverable project which won the support of planners, with some helpful additions that improved the design."

Institutional, Education/ Cambridge

Cherie Evans
CEO, Rowan Humberstone / previously Clare Hall

"Beata is a talented and skilled architect. She can produce something both beautiful and practical, and that is a rare gift. Although the work she did for the College was several years ago, I have been following her career with interest and wish her the best of luck launching her own firm."
