“Under Ivy’s management , we have full confidence in the project progressing in a timely manner.
Ivy has worked for us on 4 different projects within our home…ranging from the entire house refurbishment to a basement. We reemploy Ivy because of the skills she brings to the jobs…professionalism, accuracy, efficiency , attention to detail …..and importantly, the ability to work really well with whichever builders we engage. Finally , Ivy is a pleasure to work with and I cannot recommend her services highly enough.”
“Her work is thorough, she is extremely knowledgeable, meets deadlines with ease and has good working relationships with a variety of skilled craftsmen.
I have used Ivy Ngeow for two separate projects in two different homes. She is hugely respectful of particular needs and demands of the properties, ie their age and architectural styles and works particularly hard on the details which is where she stands out.
I would not hesitate to recommend her service for a smooth professional job. She is a delight to work with.”

” I think I was extremely lucky to find Ivy.
Ivy Ngeow is the excellent architect who prepared the drawings for my extension and submitted them to the council.
Not only is she 100% professional but is kind and attentive to the needs of her clients and her design was exactly what I had envisaged. I knew nothing about planning and less about Wandsworth Council in the beginning and with her help and support I now feel completely confident about the works. She answered all my questions and when, due to my ignorance about the policy of tree felling in Wandsworth, the plans had to be redrawn and resubmitted she kindly repeated the whole procedure.
She made, what could have been a very confusing and difficult matter, very simple and pleasant.
I recommended her wholeheartedly to anyone who needs a talented, intelligent, efficient and kind architect.”

” Ivy always has a can do attitude which made this project work so well.
We first met Ivy at the pre tender meeting and from the outset her attention to detail was excellent. She prepared an extremely detailed tender package that made it easy to cost and it gave us a clear outline of what the project entailed.
During the construction we had weekly progress meeting with Ivy where we reviewed the previous weeks progress in detail and looked to the coming weeks on what we could progress with on site. During the structural phase of works Ivy procured many items for the fit out which meant the programme was flawless through out. I would highly recommend Ivy to any client as she will make there pre-planning and construction phase seamless.”

“I would have no hesitation recommending Ivy.
On contacting her she was quick to respond to our requests. She answered our concerns and gave us advice about the steps involved in making alterations and who we need to contact. She produced a design and we had plans emailed within a week. Whenever we had a question she would respond promptly. We will certainly use her again.”

“We first met Ivy in November 2002 having exchanged contracts on a period house in Wimbledon in need of complete renovation.
Her efficiency, frankness and wide variety of ideas appealed immediately to us and over the course of the project were to prove to be her unfailing strengths. Ivy displayed a great ability to take our views into account and incorporate them with her creative ideas. Given the scale of the project it was immensely reassuring to know that Ivy was in total control and was thorough and very approachable throughout.
Ivy is a highly effective and efficient individual and we are really delighted with the final results.”
Paul Hale & Mary Kennedy-Hale, Wimbledon
“I consider myself very fortunate in discovering Ivy.
She took on board all my requirements and produced excellent ideas from the initial meeting and throughout the design stage.
The finished drawings were submitted quickly to Wandsworth Council and full planning permission granted without further hindrance.
Ivy’s input and professionalism took me smoothly through that difficult and potentially traumatic planning stage without incident. Her skilled and sensitive contribution helped me get the project off the ground and also gave me the confidence to continue with it to fruition.
I would recommend her to anyone considering an architectural adventure without hesitation.”
Brian Taylor, Battersea, London SW11
“Ivy is a feisty young architect who stands no nonsense from burly builders. Her design for my utility room was imaginative yet practical and was very sympathetic to the architectural style of my house. The end result was very pleasing and the whole project was stress-free thanks to Ivy’s organisational skills and reliability. I can thoroughly recommend her.”
Deanne Ward, Kingston, Surrey
“I commissioned Ivy Ngeow as my architect for a loft extension to a small Victorian converted flat in Central London. Her designs are inspired, imaginative and directional whilst remaining sensitive to the existing fabric of the building and conscious of the limitations of the budget.
This exciting and innovative scheme will add considerable value to the property, maximising the use of prime location space to the full.”
Clair Whiteman, Fulham, London SW6
“Ivy Ngeow’s creative solutionto solving the internal layout involved opening up the flat onto the garden, which dramatically improved the light and overall feel of the flat. I am sure this enhanced both the ‘letability’ of the flat and its rental value. She also controlled the job well when it was on site.”
Sue Adams, Wimbledon, London SW19
“We had a site for two new build houses in Wandsworth, London. Ivy’s creative use of space enabled us to build wonderful life-enhancing homes. No detail was too small, from overall design and specification, down to paint types and colours. An all-round professional with a flair for creative interior design – and a pleasure to work with.”
