Abi was recommended to us by a builder we approached regarding a garage conversion and single storey rear extension. She came to meet with us before the project began and I instantly felt she understood the challenges we had with the current downstairs layout. She listened to our ideas, needs and discussed with us how she works.
I enjoyed how she offers a workshop to begin the design process and listens to what you need/want whilst offering an architects flare. She also considered how the space she designed would include all the design/storage and practical features we needed. Her eye for interior design has also been helpful. She especially understood the needs of our growing family, future proofing our ideas and home.
Our planning permission application was submitted by Abi and she navigated the whole process going above and beyond assisting us to get the decision notice we wanted. This highly stressful process was made much easier by her involvement.
Abi is readily available and a down to earth, personable architect. Abi was superb from beginning to end we cannot recommend her enough!

Do you know what a really good idea is? Buying a period property that needs a complete renovation, while having 4 children under 4.
Do you know is actually a good idea? Hiring Abi to be our architect. She's been with us every step of the way, from measuring up, design workshops, planning applications and mentorship on how to tender for builders. Her work ethic has been tremendous, her knowledge and ideas fantastic, but what has set Abi apart from other architects is her communication, her responsivness and passion would be very hard to surpass. We have enjoyed the process of designing our new home with her, and can't wait to show her the finished product.
Abi totally unlocked our house for us! We were totally stuck and she came up with a fabulous design that has transformed our house from a series of awkward rooms to an amazing usable family space. Abi has so much energy and creativity and she listens and workshops ideas so you feel involved in the process, and can explore options so you feel 100% about the final design. She has loads of practical tips for going to tender and the build stage too.
'I was fortunate to have a once in a lifetime opportunity to build my own home to my specification on a plot of land I had acquired [near Selby]. I had met Abigail through work and my previous professional experience of her left me in no doubt that she would be the perfect partner for me to work with on this project. From her inputs into initial design and feasibility to producing an exceptional final design and managing it through the planning process, she was always on the front foot, keeping us informed of progress and making it relatively stress-free. I would have no hesitations in recommending her to those considering their choice of architect for new build properties.'
'Tice & Co came recommended to us by a friend as we were looking into extending our house, but didn't know where to start. Abi was quick to offer an onsite visit which was invaluable as it really outlined our possibilities and she was able to talk us through budgeting, design ideas and the process we would need to follow - something we had no knowledge on. As someone who struggles to visualise she was able to take our ideas and then provide different drawings in line with our brief, which really made things come to life. Once we had decided to go ahead with the plans, Abi has been instrumental in getting planning approval, dealing with manhole issues (causing a re-think), organising and providing advice on quotations. Throughout the whole process Abi has been able to make the process simple, demystify all the building terminology and provided great advice. A personable and professional service, delivered with passion. We would highly recommend!'
'Abi has been helping us with the design and plans of a particularly tricky two storey side extension to a two bedroom end terrace. The space we have is awkward so has needed some creative thinking and detailed exploration of various options to see what might work. Having explored a few main options ,and lots of minor variations within each one, we have ended up with a design that ticks the boxes. Abi has been extremely helpful throughout, responding to any questions and carrying out all the work very promptly. We really needed someone to help with the creative/problem solving process, not just someone to produce some plans, and Abi fulfilled that demanding role perfectly. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Abi.'
'Abigail has been amazing!! I would thoroughly recommend her services. She is reliable and most certainly on the ball. No job too small or too big. She has a builder's brain with architect's skills and mass knowledge. We couldn't recommend her services enough, Abigail has gone the extra mile for us and more. Thank you Abigail for helping us and being the top professional!'
'I moved to a smaller property following the death of my wife, and I was aware that the Kitchen needed extending. Abigail Tice was recommended to me and I decided to use her architectural advice regarding the design and finding a suitable Builder.
She was extremely helpful and produced some very good drawings showing the existing layout and the proposed extension, including the position of replacement kitchen equipment and units that I am very pleased with.
In addition, she came to a meeting with several builders and made sure that they included for all the necessary work, she organised the supply of all the new kitchen units and equipment and organised the Structural Engineer and Building Control contacts.
We agreed on the Builder that will soon be completing the work, and I am confident that I will be very pleased with the new Kitchen.'
'We were looking to merge two bedrooms and create a large master bedroom with en-suite, however despite numerous bathroom designers attending we didn’t feel they were the right fit, nor were they able to give us everything that we wanted within both rooms and our budget. Then we found Abi who instantly understood what we were after, she created several designs until we got it just right, and she was also able to achieve everything we wanted which other designers said was not possible. We cannot recommend her enough, everyone comments on our bedroom/ en-suite, she went over and above everything we imagined and we couldn’t be happier with the transformation.'
