Our clients are as varied as the projects that we work on, so we understand that every architect-client relationship is unique.

Architectural projects can take years between inception and completion, so it is important that an excellent working relationship based on mutual trust and great communication is formed between us from the outset. We have much experience with this and employ a variety of tools to ensure that the process is as engaging, stress-free and fun as possible.

We will guide you through the construction process to make your project run as smoothly as possible, both during the design stages and whilst on site. We are problem solvers at heart and we’re always on hand to explain a procedure, chat through an issue or offer you advice on the best way forward.


Adrienne is a pleasure to work with. She has guided us through the first stages of our project, adding significant experience, knowledge, understanding and expertise. There have been several complications on our job that Adrienne has helped us work through to find solutions that work for us and will work structurally, for planning and for building regulations. She has always been patient and taken time to explain things, whilst working in a timely manner. I would not hesitate to recommend Adrienne to others.

South Road, Chesham Bois

We at Springwell Veterinary presented Cain Architects with a brief to convert a rambling 1920s bungalow into a modern surgery. They created space where it was needed, light where there was none and gave us a building that flows perfectly to meet our needs. Adrienne collaborated with the council effectively and worked harmoniously with our project manager, streamlining the process. She even organised the green energy solutions. Thank you Adrienne. I can’t imagine how anyone could have done better

Springwell Veterinary Surgery, Tring

It has been my pleasure to work with Adrienne on many occasions over the last 10 years. I have found her work to be of the highest professional standard, always delivered on time and executed in a most conscientious manner. I have successfully recommended her services to several clients, whom have also benefitted from a pragmatic design flair and clear presentation style, so often lacking in others, which is backed up with many years working in real-world architecture.

The Howse Wallis Partnership, London

We have found Cain Architects to be very professional yet friendly; direct and straight forward to deal with. They have the ability to think outside the box but at the same time have listened to our needs. They were very supportive throughout the whole process keeping us up dated and well informed at all times. We really could not recommend them any more highly.

Parrotts Lane, Buckland Common

Adrienne has shown herself to be incredibly professional and talented. She listened to every family member’s needs and wants when at the early discussion stages of our project. We were provided with several designs that not only met our individual briefs but managed to incorporate them all seamlessly. She excelled our expectations. Any questions we had were answered quickly and concisely and she her advice was great. We cannot recommend her highly enough.

Liverpool Road, Watford

I’d never had cause to use an architect before and discovered it’s a bit like choosing a hairdresser – they have to know what they’re doing but mostly, you’ve got to get on really well together. I met a couple of other architects before Adrienne but I just didn’t feel any connection – Adrienne totally understood my vision. She added to and improved my ideas, was patient and a complete pleasure to work with. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.

Berkeley Avenue, Chesham

Adrienne has been incredibly easy to work with, she’s listened to what we want, thought about how we live as a family and been consultative in her approach. We’re really thrilled with the creative design ideas she came up with and the family house of our dreams that she has helped us create.

The Coach House, Pitstone

I would have no hesitation in recommending Adrienne who has been a pleasure to deal with. Personable, professional and enthusiastic at all times, she listened to all our ideas and as well as delivering on these she also came up with some fresh new ideas for us to consider.

Little Twye Cottages, Buckland Common

We were thoroughly satisfied by the work Adrienne did for us. As well as drawing up the elevations and plans to a high standard, she offered us plenty of guidance and support throughout the whole process. Adrienne has broad knowledge of local council regulations and terms which help us greatly. Very happy with her work

Church Street, Chesham

Adrienne’s personal yet professional approach made it easy to communicate throughout the whole project. Her design ideas were so helpful to focus us on how we really wanted to use the space. She also took away a lot of the stress of the planning process ensuring it ran smoothly. We would happily recommend Adrienne – she was a pleasure to work with.

Gossoms End, Berkhamsted

Cain Architects were a pleasure to work with. Adrienne made really helpful and well thought through suggestions, always responded to our queries very quickly and made the whole process from initial design to planning & building control approval seem effortless. It felt like nothing was too much trouble for Adrienne and she consistently went over and above what we expected. We would highly recommend her.

Grimsdell’s Lane, Amersham

Adrienne was excellent from start to finish. She had brilliant ideas that transformed our house from an un-modernised and tired building into a beautiful open plan home – she even fitted in an ensuite bathroom when we thought it couldn’t be done. I highly recommend Cain Architects to anyone looking to enhance their property.

Foxdell, Chalfont St Peter
