Perrie F.'s review on Oct 14, 2020

Within the first five minutes, Noel’s professional manner and knowledge was obvious and infectious. He produced designs I did not think were possible for my living room and reinvented the way we use and feel about the space. I can not recommend him highly enough.

Jemima O.'s review on Oct 08, 2020

I approached Noel with an impossible brief, well, effectively two totally opposite briefs - I needed a space that would function as both a jewellery workshop and a showroom for receiving clients and exhibiting pieces. Noel came up with the most thoughtful and creative solutions to meet the demands of my (tiny) challenging space, and created an environment that was as beautiful as it was efficient! He blended the scruffy and the smart so seamlessly by building the storage that I desperately needed, but in the form of handmade units that are so unique and unobtrusive that they’re more like features than practicalities! From the first consultation Noel had grasped my style and my needs perfectly, the result is a studio that feels so personal and so me - and yet it’s full of ideas that I could never have dreamed of! He was constantly mindful and considerate of my tastes and truly listened to my desires, offering interesting suggestions to elevate - I was overwhelmed by his attention to detail and careful consideration of every finishing. Noel is professional and personable and made the whole experience an absolute pleasure -I will be using him for any future projects that I have!

Tamara h.'s review on Oct 02, 2020

Noel was great to work with. Our pub looked amazing and all of our customers loved it. The redesign helped us become higher ranked and the decor was always mentioned in revues. Noel and his team made the process a genuine pleasure and the quote was lower than other quotes. Me and my partner learned a lot and Noel was always keen to share his knowledge and experience. We will definitely be using Aporia again for future projects.

I set up Aporia to offer a bespoke design and build service for commercial and private clients. I have worked on everything from bars and restaurants to barn conversions and bedrooms. I have an amazing team who are dedicated and incredibly talented. I work one-to-one with every client no matter how big or small the project. I am fascinated with space and the effect it has on us. A well designed space can affect our mood, make us more relaxed and productive, and I genuinely think a well thought out space makes for a better quality of life. I work to any budget and strive to achieve the aesthetic and functionality my clients strive for. Working with a designer is a very personal journey and for me, over the past twenty years, it has always been a rewarding partnership. Clients learn as we work together and many have gone on to design their own spaces with very little input from me - that is one of my goals, to share my passion for design and see that passion grow as my clients work with me to create their space and make it their own. However, if you have a busy schedule and just want me to take care of everything, I can do that too - from design to project management to build. I love what I do and have structured Aporia so that I can take on most projects no matter what size. We offer everything from designing a small room in terms of colour, all the way up to full commercial and private builds, bespoke installations, bars, gardens, and even upholstering and sourcing furniture from across the U.K and Europe to find the perfect pieces for your project. Aporia is a unique design company and I pride myself on working with clients to help any space fulfil its full potential because I believe it improves our quality of life and makes us... happier.

Questions & answers

What should customers know about your pricing? (E.g. estimates, discounts, fees, package pricing)
I offer a flat £250 consultation fee with no obligation to move forward. This will give most clients an excellent idea of an overall design scheme as it can take 4/5 hours on site.
What process do you go through when starting with a new customer?
After initial consultation, I offer a detailed design brief and scheduling ahead of initial payment. This will include a quote for all works broken into three payments. Our quotes are without obligation.
What education or training is most relevant to your work?
I have designed and built spaces for over 20 years. Although I have no formal design training I do hold a Degree, MA and PhD as I spend a lot of time writing design briefs and grant applications. I also teach. My team is fully qualified, certified where necessary, and we are fully insured.
Do you have tips or advice for someone hiring a pro in your line of work?
Always meet in person whenever possible. Do not commit beyond an initial consultation fee. It is important you share an aesthetic goal ahead of any project and that the designer fully understands what you want from your space.
What questions should customers have ready before speaking to pros about their project?
Timeframe Cost Skill base of design team or individual Always get several quotes. Always!
