These are just some of
our clients that we’ve
served over the years

"Nicks brief was to develop a multi phased masterplan for our house and outbuildings. Phase 1 involved an extension and remodelling of the existing house. Nick made a number of visits to the house to discuss our requirements and ambitions for the project. Nick produced a series of external and internal drawings to help bring the project to life. This has been invaluable in helping us visualise how the extension will look and feel; and how the space will be used. From the start Nick has also advised on materials, interiors, lighting and furniture which we have found very useful when planning the project. His ideas, concepts and designs are imaginative and appealing. Which, for us, has created an exciting and inspiring space to make our home."

"Nick and Angela form a unique partnership that has been instrumental in bringing our project to life.  Nick has the creative flair and design skills that enabled us to convert our embryonic thoughts into a carefully thought out, fully designed & costed project.   He has remained involved from the original concept drawings, through to the project management and the implementation of his designs. Angela, with an excellent eye for detail, compliments Nick’s work and focussed on the interior design and soft furnishings.  Together they have been the perfect team, covering all aspects of the project."

You and your team provided a fantastic range of options that together with the Audi AG Project team transformed what was a rather cold and clinical showroom into an exciting retail experience for our customers who have been delighted by the transformation"

Gerard Nieuwenhuys
CEO Sytner Group

"I have been working with Nick for several years in many projects, and the results have been really good. The design has exceeded the expectations of clients and the level of service and dedication we have received has been a key point for the success of the projects. Nick has a great ability to understand the requirements of each brand and client, to achieve the functionality needs of the businesses and to communicate the brand concepts through outstanding design."

"Nick Butterfield has been the creative force behind our windows at The Chelsea Harbour Design Centre for many years. They have gained recognition worldwide, for being creative well composed and always a little of the wall! He is a delight to work with."

Christian Lee
Managing Director, Zimmer & Rohde

"I have known and worked with Nick for over 30 years. I can honestly say that in all that time I’ve rarely met a more enterprising and creative thinker. If you combine that
with his entrepreneurial attitude it’s no surprise that the results of his work are so spirited and innovative. He is excellent at absorbing and getting the most out of a brief and will always test the boundaries of what’s possible rather than playing safe, which invariably will result
in solutions that are original and breath-taking. What compliments this perfectly is his ability to work harmoniously in a wider team as well as being able to lead one, which is essential to be a successful 21 st century designer. I would have no hesitation in recommending Nick."

Bryan Wright
Strategy & Legacy Director, Yellowyoyo

"It’s rare that you come across standout talent like Nick Butterfield. I had the pleasure of working with Nick at Imagimax collaborating on several nightclub, casino and restaurant projects. Nick has an innate ability to both understand a client’s requirements and to deliver a design beyond their expectations. He executes delivery to realize buildings and interiors that truly bring concepts to life.Be it finding an original component to complete a vintage tandem bicycle restoration or accentuating a building flow by following the natural topography of a site, he always finds a way to put a smile on your face”
