Meisterstueck-HAUS is a 110-year-old German pre-manufactured house-building company, which has been active in the UK since June 2010.

We originally worked with a German architect, but it became apparent that we needed experienced, focused support from a British architectural team in particular in connection with planning application procedure, which we were increasingly being asked to provide.

Thinking Buildings Ltd is the ideal partner for us. Their experience in designing from scratch a house to be built in a conservation area, taking into consideration design aspects which help the house sit sympathetically on the site while maintaining the desired contemporary style, was invaluable. Without their input planning permission would not have been obtained and the project would have been cancelled.

We particularly appreciate their willingness to adapt to the demands of off-site manufacture, and their emphasis on ecological building methods and energy-efficient construction – the key aims of Meisterstueck-HAUS.

They have also supplied us with useful and valued advice on many aspects of  building in the UK.

In meetings with clients they have been open, understanding and constructive; calmly guiding our enthusiasms into measured, considered and ultimately successful designs.

We would have no hesitation in recommending them, other than that we do not want them to become too busy with other clients! We look forward to a long and productive business partnership with Thinking Buildings Ltd.
