Proofreader meets… Architect

As part of my marketing strategy to promote my proofreading, editing & copywriting business, I spend some of my time networking. As a result, I have met some wonderful people working in all sorts of businesses. With my innate interest in “all things business” I invited Alison Pressley, an architect, to tell me her business story. Here it is…

Alison Pressley – Architect

Alison Pressley started AP Architects, based in Henley-on-Thames, in 2006 as a way to combine her extensive commercial experience with bringing up her family.

Alison’s experience in architecture and construction was founded at Foster and Partners and DNA Architecture, working on landmark projects including the ‘Ark’ in London and the new Hong Kong International Airport. Since setting up her own independent practice, she has worked with homeowners in London and across the Thames Valley on residential design projects of all sizes, and always with “practical” and “lifestyle” firmly in mind.

If you are looking to build, rebuild, improve, renovate or extend your home or if you have an idea, but need some drawings or want some help to realise your property’s potential, Alison will meet you for a free no-obligation appointment at a time to suit you.

Alison focuses on your home and the way you use the space both inside and out. She listens to you, develops your ideas, adds some fresh perspective, provides comprehensive designs, and works with you and a select team of consultants to bring the concept to life. She keeps her clients informed throughout; she talks you through the entire building process, discussing the associated costs upfront, so you know what to expect at every stage. Her aim is to make the process as straightforward as possible; she will work with you right from the initial brief, through the design and legislation phases, during on-site construction and through to the completed project.

Alison Pressley will be exhibiting at The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Henley Design Day 2013 at Henley Town Hall, Saturday 9th March 2013. This event has been designed to showcase the work of architectural practices in the area who specialise in building conservation, sustainable projects, new build, self-build and small domestic extensions and conversions. Entrance to Henley Design Day is free to the public and runs in the Main Hall from 10.00am until 2.30pm. This is an ideal opportunity to check out Alison’s portfolio of projects and to chat with her informally about your ideas for your home.
