Now Leiden-based, Richard's architectural passion for period properties has led him to go full-time in the building trade and he has recruited a team of highly-skilled and reliable sub-contractors to help him deliver new projects.

Construction, Repairs and Maintenance

With over 25 years experience working on historical houses using materials of the very highest quality, you can always expect work to be completed to the highest standards and always sympathetic to the age and style of the building. Equally important is that we always work in compliance with 'Listed' and Rijksmonument' regulations.

A perfectionist! Richard has just finished our wet room and it’s lovely. He gave great advice, and he even suggested a gorgeous light tunnel which changes the whole upstairs! Just saving for his next job!
