We really appreciated the sympathetic design and conversion from Chapel to home, whilst retaining the Chapels structural features and history. Chris understood our needs and helped broaden our vision with clever design. The Chapel retains its character and is packed full of history whilst the design allows for contemporary living. We wanted a family home for the future, with clever design and integration the Chapel benefits from modern insulation, energy efficient heating from an Air Source Heat Pump and integrated solar power which complied with the planning restrictions of the conservation zone the Chapel sits in. Chris steered us through and dealt with some fairly tricky planning, which really helped us to focus on the fun side of the build."

We would not hesitate to recommend Rider Sale to anyone looking for a thoroughly professional and creative architect. Chris's meticulous attention to detail and thoughtful design ensured we were able to turn a fairly ordinary old building into a special barn conversion that not only works well on a practical level but also has a wow factor. Our project also required some fairly difficult negotiations with the Listed Buildings department and I am certain we would not have got consent without Chris on the team.

An excellent example of a functional community building that sits harmoniously with its neighbours and the landscape.

We viewed many other designs before we engaged Rider Sale Associates, and are now on our second project. We have no hesitation in recommending RSA to others.

This is the third project that Christopher Sale has done for us and we can thoroughly recommend his architectural services.

Just a note to advise that the planning application at London Lane was unanimously supported by Members of the Development Management Panel at Huntingdonshire DC last night; after initial reservations about the proposal, the Officers at Huntingdonshire DC were won over as to the merits of the scheme, Members were particularly complimentary of the proposed design and the presentation of the submission by Rider Sale - well done Chris and team!
