"I love our house, but I must admit sometimes I am sad that it’s all done now. It was the best year ever building the house!"
"I think it looks beautiful and from the outside love the clean lines with a “twist”. I think you have done another wonderful job! I sometimes find myself scheming about holiday houses just so you can design one from scratch!"
"Many thanks – you and your team have done a fantastic job. I have been very impressed with the way in which you have managed the project and the result looks simply stunning. We are very much enjoying the first day (of many) here.
If you ever need a reference for your work we’d be very happy to oblige."
"We have not had the chance to thank you for the wonderful job you did on our extension. We have always felt that the house exuded a sense of calm and somehow you have managed to retain it in the renovations.
We think you did a great job and we are very grateful. I seem to have used the word joy to extreme but that is what the result is, joyful. Thank you."
"You designed a home that adhered to all my expectations and managed to do so on time and on an extremely tight budget! I am the very proud owner of my stunning new-look home, much to the envy of all my neighbours!"
"All I can say is that Minette was brilliant and I can recommend her without reservation. Thanks to Minette our frumpy house became a funky house."
" Sy het n vreeslike goeie aanvoeling vir ruimte en mense. Sy het n siel"
"I have many architect friends/acquaintances some of whom I have, over the years, appointed on various jobs ranging from extensive alterations to new build - both residential and commercial. However, for Stanford we selected Minette Bell because of her absolute emotional immersion into each project she undertakes; she relates well to her clients - both male and female and she has ears.
She specialises in residential architecture and produces incredibly detailed no nonsense drawings"
