This year we are celebrating 30 years in practice. Back in 1986, Nick Gillibrand and Edward Mason set sail on an Architectural adventure that has resulted in a wide ranging portfolio of exciting designs all over the North of England, the Scottish Borders and North Wales.
Fast forward to 2016 and Mason Gillibrand continue to build on their regional reputation for high quality design and client service. We asked some of our recent clients to give us feedback on their experience with MGA:
"MGA have designed something exceptional here by adding to our original house a major extension which faces into a walled garden, allowing us to enjoy fabulous views from many aspects.
The project was managed superbly well by Julian and his team who were always on hand to provide well considered advice and resolve any matters in a highly professional and calm manner making this major change in our lives a very pleasant experience.
We are absolutely delighted with our new home and have no hesitation in recommending MGA"

We are still working with Mason Gillibrand having settled on a design and applied for planning. We have impressed with the way that Lee and Lucy have taken the time to really understand the way we live and what we need from our home, capturing our requirements in a design that we are delighted with and then working pragmatically to find ways to achieve the desired outcome. We have been left with a design for a home that really delivers for the way we live giving us all the functionality in what looks on paper to be a beautiful form. You get the feeling that they really care about the project as if it were their own.
We are excited to move to the next stage of the project with Mason Gillibrandʼs help to complete the detailed design and oversight of the tender and build process and do so with the confidence of knowing that we have professional support.

Embarking on a new project to add a modern extension to a grade 2 listed house was exciting but would the end result add to the existing building and sit comfortably? We need not have worried. Mason Gillibrand provided an excellent sympathetic design to which we could add our own individual ideas.
It became a true partnership with MG providing us with wise advice and direction. Detail and quality of material was all important and MGʼs experience and expertise was crucial. Their expertise extended to helping source interior elements as well as external.
The final result has been a triumph which has provided immense pleasure.

Overall we found working with Mason Gillibrand was an extremely good and positive experience. Whilst our principal contact was the partner Paul Duckett, everyone we dealt within their team were extremely efficient, professional and friendly at all times - making the whole process both relatively relaxed and reassuring.
At the very beginning of the project Paul himself obtained a very clear understanding of our requirements and fully interpreted them within the scheme whilst still providing us with unexpected and very welcome ideas of his own.
We chose Mason Gillibrand to also project manage, which Paul carried out with such ultimate care and detail it both removed a great deal of the potential stress, but more importantly ensured that the quality of the build fully met with our expectations.
Throughout the project there were of course many unexpected twist and turns, and Mason Gillibrand never took the easy option and were never afraid to challenge our own thoughts and ideas in a very constructive and creative way.
We would highly recommend Mason Gillibrand to anyone looking for exceptional design and a full turnkey service.
