Happy 11th Anniversary! Eleven years ago today, on Valentine’s Day (always the romantics), Simon launched Randell Design Group, or as it was known then – More than Architecture. Our goal was to create something “more than” a traditional architectural practice. We were aiming to create a company that offered the complete package – something that would take our clients from ideas through to completion of their dream property. We wanted to do this in a friendly, low-stress and unpretentious way.

Timing is everything. We happened to jump out on our own just at the dawn of the Great Recession of 2008 – not ideal for a young business in the construction industry! Despite this, our firm continued to thrive – thanks to great friends, recommendations, word of mouth and lots of good luck. We always tried to remain friendly with our clients and put them first; often growing friendships and helping them with lots of things not related to designing buildings!

Since 2008, we have grown from two to a team of fourteen talented and dedicated team members. We have helped hundreds of clients to realise their dreams and made some life-long friends along the way. We now offer a lot more than just architecture and our ethos hasn’t changed. We do our best to remain friendly and put our clients first. We continue to understand that everyone is different and we need to tailor our approach based on our clients’ very personal needs, lifestyles and dreams. We get great happiness on the joy our clients get from the homes and buildings that we have helped to create.

“We are so grateful for the past 11 years and celebrate the joy we have helped bring to others.”

Thank you all for your support, friendship and good words since 2008. It has been an amazing journey so far and we look forward to the road ahead.
