What people say?

We are very pleased with the results of our working partnership with R A Design.  We commissioned them to design a property which is situated above Carbis Bay in St Ives, Cornwall.  The completed property featured in a prominent design magazine.  R A Design produced a wonderful design and worked closely with both ourselves and the builders to produce a truly outstanding property.  We would highly recommend them.
