Company founder, Carol Pettifar, worked for structural engineers in South Africa as a structural detailer and in the late 1980s, qualified as an interior designer specialising in corporate design.

However, with a keen interest in architecture and the building industry, Carol evolved from structures and interiors to architectural design and set up a Close Corporation business, and for 12 years ran a successful practice in Johannesburg and Cape Town before locating to the U.K. in 2002. Carol’s most successful project was the design of 74 houses within two secure cluster developments, in the northern suburbs of Johannesburg (Redberry Hill and Redberry Ridge, Douglasdale, Sandton).

Carol moved to the U.K. in 2002 and initially worked for a land dealer to familiarise herself with UK Building Standards and Regulations. In 2004 she established an independent architectural design practice of her own and began to win a succession of highly successful contracts with reputable clients.

Carol’s previous architectural projects have included:

• Traditional and contemporary new build executive homes.
• Single to double storey extensions.
• Garages to offices and granny flat conversions.
• Barn and loft conversions.
• Indoor and outdoor swimming pools.
• Patios, porches and sunrooms.
• Designs incorporating atriums, herbariums and skylights.

Carol is a highly creative, motivated and insightful designer with extensive experience and training. To discuss her portfolio please contact us.
