The Pavilion Social Media Solutions (UK) West Riding Recruitment Mr & Mrs Farrington

So Sound Design provided us with a consultancy and design service, which allowed us to complete our renovation activity in just eight weeks and within a restricted and finite budget. Their excellent understanding of the planning process ensured that planning permission was granted quickly, with no issues – particularly challenging given the location of the building in a conservation area. Their design consultancy service ensured we were able to make well considered design decisions which allowed us to meet our aspirations within our limited budget. The resulting schedule of works provided by So Sound Design allowed us to manage our contractors and suppliers to very specific deliverables, enabling tight control of budget and timescales. It was a pleasure working with such a professional, knowledgeable and customer focussed organisation.

I recently introduced you to Sarah Valentine-Bull who is looking to extend her home but requires any changes to meet the varied requirements of both her and her busy family. So Sound Design listened to what the family had to say and what they wanted to gain from the additional space. You incorporated their needs into your final design together with yours to ensure the most effective use of the new space, enabling multi-functional use of the various areas within it. Compared to other companies that were asked to quote on the work, you took the time to really understand all aspects of the commission, unlike other companies who seemed more focused on just supplying a solution that would work for them. all deadlines were met in a timely fashion and ensured a very happy customer. I would have no hesitation in recommending So Sound Design in the future and I look forward to seeing this design come to life.

After much deliberation, we decided to explore the possibility of extending our dated 1940's home which has been a project for the last 3 years. Pete promptly came to us and he listened to what we (mainly my other half) has in mind. Pete put the plans together for us quickly and concisely and after a few changes and further ideas they were submitted for planning. all the way through the build Pete has been on hand to assist with various matters and offer his advice and contacts we required. I would recommend, without hesitation, Pete and So Sound Design for any architectural work. He has great ideas, experience and patience as I know we (my other half) have not been the easiest client he has ever had. However, now, I have a wonderful extension, a kitchen that Gordon Ramsey would like a tour of, and added a warm feel to what was an un-useful area.

From start to finish Peter and his team were exemplary, from the initial meeting where we discussed our thoughts and requirements to the site visits, the first draft of drawings, the slight amends and then to the final submission, and subsequent approval. Peter's knowledge of local planning laws and what can and cannot be achieved is something which is well worth investing in, and without that we would not be in the position we are now in.

Whitehaven RLFC Northern Media DESK RE:WORK

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you on behalf of Whitehaven RLFC for the work undertaken by your company So Sound Architecture & Interior Design on the refurbishment at Whitehaven Rugby League's Recreation Ground, consisting of the modification of the existing changing room, the provision of a new changing room and gym area. The work included support in development of specifications and design, along with plans for the refurbishment, which I have to say were all completed to an extremely high standard in the most efficient manner, showing great urgency to meet our extremely tight deadlines.

Having recently moved into a new business premise, we contacted So Sound Design to call on Pete's and Jenny's expertise to help design the interior of our office and bring it to life. Whilst we knew you would come up with a workplace design that was creative and inspiring, we were most impressed with how you considered every single functional and logical aspect, from maximising space, optimising productivity and improving communication, to the impact of noise, identifying break out areas and understanding the whole staff and customer experience. I just wanted to say thank you to Pete and Jenny for genuinely showing interest in how we operate, the culture of our people, our customer journey, for ensuring no stone was left unturned, and for being patient. I will certainly recommend your services to my business contacts.

So Sound Design Architecture and Interior Design firstly prepared plans for two potential office spaces. The plans captured the look and feel that we were trying to achieve for our new office. Working with Jennifer and the rest of the So Sound Design team was an excellent constructive process. Together we agreed a brief, the interior design concepts and overall budget. The So Sound team effectively took over and managed the whole process but always keeping me informed and agreeing with me as the client, everything from developing the designs for space, the concept and material boards and design features to be included within the design. Jennifer did an excellent job with understanding our goals for the space and came up with many unique ideas to bring our “wish list” to fruition. Their creativity with showroom space, reception area, meeting room, open work spaces and private offices led to our collective vision for the space and ultimately led towards our choice of building to pursue a lease.


The So Sound Design team, led by Peter Rucklidge, turned our vision into reality. Through interactive design sessions, Peter and the team developed a design that embodies the RE:WORK core values and corporate image. So Sound Design were professional and creative throughout the design process, bringing knowledge and expertise to the table and to help lead the construction effort. We set out to build an innovative work environment that provides our employees a positive and energetic atmosphere, and So Sound Design helped us achieve this goal. Employee feedback on our space has been overwhelming positive. The space is professional, clean, and open. We could not be happier with results and look forward to future collaborations with Peter and the So Sound team.


project management
Selby RUFC

We invited a number of firms to assist us with the design and project management for the refurbishment of our rugby clubhouse. So Sound were absolutely brilliant, their pitch was imaginative and brilliantly priced. So we gave it a whirl and they absolutely nailed it. In the first month after re-opening we took more rental bookings for the facility than we did in the whole of last season, our members love it and bar sales are up by 20% because it is all so efficiently designed. Oh, and it looks great.
