22 & 24 Fenwick Street, York, YO23 1JR

~~My wife and I bought a house in Bishopthorpe Road which already had planning permission to build a four bedroom detached house at the end of the garden facing Fenwick Street but we thought two x two bedroom semi-detached houses would be more in keeping.  We approached a number of architects but were disappointed and somewhat frustrated by the initial designs they produced, and by having to constantly chase. 


Paul was recommended to us by a builder we had used and he quickly came up with some ideas and designs which we both liked.   From then on it was a pleasure working with Paul and he guided us through the planning and tendering process in an efficient, professional and cost-effective manner.   Construction commenced in late 2010 and was completed in May 2011.  Paul was readily available and able to deal with any enquiries raised by the builders and we were delighted with the end product.  We would not have any hesitation in recommending Paul to others.

Having acquired a run-down bungalow in Poppleton in June 2013 which was in need of some TLC, enlisted Paul’s services on recommendation to develop the dwelling into something more befitting of the generous plot size and drag it into the 21st Century.

At the outset, Paul was attentive to understand what sort of design would be appealing to me, and whilst taking on board my ideas, was as requested happy to suggest alternatives that would enhance the theme or propose features that I hadn’t even thought of. Paul is extremely patient, determined to help ‘get it right’ and quickly responds with visible drawings / plans to talk through.

Paul is the ideal professional to help you formulate thoughts and translate your own ideals into a workable design; he is extremely personable and competent at what he does. I would have no hesitation in recommending his services.

~~We had Paul from Oaktree Achitectural design a kitchen/conservatory for us. Paul was fantanstic. He was respectful, helpful and reaslistic about our plans. He offered guidance and support throughout. He was able to recommend a few builders to complete the work whilst remaining impartial and letting us decide between them. A very professional and lovely man. Would highly recommend and would use him again for any work we were having done.  5 November 2014

~~Oaktree Architectural were professional and provided a very good service. We had an idea what we wanted and Paul was able to translate that into a workable plan and take care of all the planning paperwork that goes along with such a project.

~~Hi Paul,


We would like to thank you for delivering our plans for our extension which we are extremely satisfied with.

From our first meeting you listened to our initial ideas on what we really wanted with our project and with a positive fresh approach you created the plans which we are sure will look fantastic when built.

We appreciated your depth of experienced advice and ideas you gave throughout the process to help mould the design for our extension.

Thank you also for the reassurance of been just a phone call away if required during the build process as this has given us piece of mind that you are there to help if needed.

Once the project is complete we will look forward to sending you pictures of the finalized build which I’m sure will highlight the quality of your design and would be very happy for you to use these to show potential clients.

We would be more than happy to recommend your company and once again a big thank you from the both of us.


Kind regards


Andrew & Faye Breckons
