Interior Designer, London, 2014.
I first met Clair Dawson at a time when a particularly complex, detail rich, high-end residential project came to a halt due to the inability of the current general contractor to deliver it. The project was in Dubai where despite all the on-going construction, nobody has the slightest understanding of the term “Luxury” or “Quality”. Given the amount of money that had already been invested in the project, the situation was dire… I was desperate!It took Clair no time at all to familiarise herself with the particulars of the design, the multitude of structural and planning challenges pertinent to the project, appoint a good quantity surveyor and an excellent general contractor.We were up and running and several months later we had a finished product which was truly outstanding!!!
If it was not for Clair’s excellent organisation skills, dedication, understanding of the building process, obsession with quality, technical knowledge, understanding of finer details, and the ability to work on CAD, none of this would be possible.

We were introduced to Clair through a common friend approximately 2 years ago when we first bought our villa on the Palm and decided to renovate it.From day one, Clair made it amply clear that she was a highly accomplished, incredibly thorough with a great deal of attention to detail, extremely accommodating and flexible in her approach and totally solution oriented. I can’t think of even one occasion where she turned around and said that ‘it wasn’t possible” or that ‘it’s a bad idea’. All decisions were well thought out and tailored around our lifestyle.Our renovation has taken 2 years due to unforeseen circumstances but the one constant in this whole process has been Clair, without whom we probably would have given up and sold our home even before moving in or ended up with a very ordinary home.
We have grown to trust Clair and all her decisions and more than anything she has become a friend.
We would confidently recommend her for any architectural job and have no doubt she will work her magic wherever she goes!
From my experience as a Client Representative, Michael was always focused on meeting Client expectations, delivering on time, and maintaining great control over the Budget.
I am happy to recommend him on other work.
