VESP are a team of 10 architects and designers based in South Devon. Since 2006, we have established ourselves as a leading RIBA Chartered practice in the South West.
We pride ourselves on our service, our excellent working relationships, and our track record of delivering truly exceptional buildings. Read more for an overview of a typical project from start to finish.
Working with the VESP team was a very positive experience. They work in a creative, highly collaborative manner and were able to extract the best out of us as input to their design process.
They appreciated that this was not just another project for us, but a once in a lifetime home build, and they treated it as if it was as important to them as it was to us.
Most importantly, working with Ian, Eilir and the team was a pleasure - we (including our dog!) visited the office often and always felt welcome and part of the family.
Van Ellen & Sheryn are an excellent architectural team, they designed an award winning contemporary house for us in Devon. Eilir and Ian are very creative and proactive people and I would definitely use them again and always recommend them to other people.MH
First class service!ND
We chose van Ellen & Sheryn after seeing examples of the work in the area. Ian Phillips worked hard to understand our needs and preferences before coming up with his exciting design, which we loved.
They guided us through all aspects of the project, from getting planning permission (within Dartmoor National Park!), through to appointing a builder. They managed all aspects of the project and we are delighted with the final result.
They provided much more than just a design service. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
From the start you approached the assignment with a level of creativity and originality, as well as an understanding of how we wanted to live as a family, not shown by any of the many other architects we spoke to. Throughout you have demonstrated exemplary attention to detail, patience and a clear enjoyment in what you do. We started with a run down, dark, claustrophobic house and have ended up with a property truly worthy of its setting in the most beautiful countryside I know.CM
West yard farm (another VES project) inspired our own project, merging the old and new together. Eilir took initial oversight for the scheme and its direction including the required bat loft! Ian, ably assisted by Chris completed all the planning and full scheme details including the impressively helpful 3D iPad model to visualise the whole scheme. Results are impressive and we are delighted with it and the reality matches the concept brilliantly, another exceptional job by the VES team.JE
We used van Ellen and Sheryn as we had been impressed by a project they had completed on Dartmoor. We worked alongside both Eilir and Ian and both were very approachable, experienced and informal....which we liked.SC
They listened to our brief and appreciated that we had a budget.
Our project was complicated as we wanted to retain the Georgian frontage of the building and demolish the rear, adding a contemporary barn like structure.
They were always available and professional throughout.. It's reassuring to know they are just down the road should we need advice or clarification during the build process. We would certainly recommend them.
