When we started, we weren’t even sure what it was we wanted and it wasn’t until about the ‘Mark VII’ version that we finally felt brave enough to give the go ahead. During this ‘design gestation’ we felt embarrassed at our lack of direction but our indecision was met with patience and guidance until the final layout was agreed…everything was handled with smooth professionalism including the planning process with Dartmoor National Park.

Van Ellen + Sheryn have a consistent and thorough approach to the design of individual properties as well as place making. The projects we have undertaken with them have expertly balanced our brief with relevant contemporary design that is highly marketable. Their design lead approach, along with excellent interpersonal skills, pays dividends when presenting proposals to both Local Authorities and the public at consultation events.
Graeme Fuell, Head of Design, Linden Homes
From the start you approached the assignment with a level of creativity and originality, as well as an understanding of how we wanted to live as a family, not shown by any of the many other architects we spoke to. Throughout you have demonstrated exemplary attention to detail, patience and a clear enjoyment in what you do. We started with a run down, dark, claustrophobic house and have ended up with a property truly worthy of its setting in the most beautiful countryside I know.

van Ellen + Sheryn Ltd. have worked with me on a number of projects in South Devon, ranging from the refurbishment of a 1930’s period property, to high-end private dwellings and a new-build housing scheme. In each project they have provided an excellent and comprehensive service, combining contemporary design, planning knowledge and technical expertise. It has been an enjoyable process working with them, and I would not hesitate in recommending their services in the future.
