Great architects and lovely people to deal with. Arkhaus has assisted us with several developments over the years and we can definitely recommend them.

Arkhaus did a great job translating my requirements into an complete vision! The design responded well to the budgetary constraints whilst not compromising the overall design vision. The plans produced by Arkhaus have received rave reviews from everyone I have shown them to, with the level of documentation and detail being excellent.

It has been a pleasure to work with Fernando and the team at Arkhaus. Creative, patient, knowledgeable, friendly, accommodating, turning our vision into a masterpiece.
From the start, we could not have been happier with the team at Arkhaus and would highly recommend.
