Our project entailed the full reconstruction of a Georgian terraced house, with all the planning application complexities. Robert and his able team undertook all the tasks associated to the project and we were delighted with the finished product. I will also mentioned that the ‘after sales’ service was excellent on the little matters that have required attention in the following years.
“Robert and the Pipedreams team have worked on a number of phases of updating my Victorian house. From the planning stage right through to completion, they did what they said they would for each phase and kept me informed throughout. The financial side was similarly organised and there were no nasty surprises. The team is clearly experienced with period properties and they had plenty of ideas. I was very happy with the work and I have no hesitation recommending Robert and the team -whilst embarking on a building project can be worrisome, with them you get peace of mind. On top of all of this, the team are a lovely group of people who I didn’t mind having around.”
“Robert was very professional during the renovation of our 5,000 sq.ft London flat. He was very involved and worked hard to obtain premium quality finishes at very good prices. He also managed to live successfully with the numerous limitations that our building management imposed without delaying the estimated completion date despite unexpected setbacks. Overall we are very satisfied with his professional work and would undoubtedly work with him again.”
“we were extremely pleased with the courtesy from all your staff, the attention to detail and the efficient manner of which they worked. as with every renovation there are issue that arise, and we truly impressed on how quickly and efficient you handle them. The whole process from helping us with fabric, color schemes, furniture placement and sound proofing devices went very well. The overall look of the home has been greatly improved thanks to you. The fact that job was completed within a timely manner and within budget was very impressive.
We would like to highly recommend Pipedreams for any renovation job and would be happy to be a reference for your future clients.”

We were recommended Pipedreams Interiors by the agent we bought the property from. We interviewed several interior designers and we particularly impressed with Robert and his ideas.
We were told the works would take 3 months from start to finish and i can say that the work was completed exactly to the schedule we were give. Robert and his team were fantastic, we met Robert on site where he showed us progress every week. The managing agents also praised the team as each night they left the premises immaculate. We had constant contact with Robert or the Building manager via phone and email and they were always there to meet us when we required. I have no hesitation in recommending Robert and his team and will certainly use them again.
Robert and the team redesigned and renovated my flat in London. It was in such a state when I bought it – probably no work had been done to it since the 70s. So it needed a total remodel from structural work to rewiring and new plumbing to a new kitchen and bathrooms and then he dealt with all the interior design and furnishings. Robert took all the hassle and organisation away from me – dealt with the council and management company etc. Which was really appreciated. And he always had the right expert on hand whether it was an architect, plumber, furniture designer, curtain maker or someone else.
The standard of Pipedream’s work was great. Robert listened to what I wanted and gave me ideas and suggestions and when something wasn’t going to work he explained why. The flat was finished on schedule and looks really good. Everyone who has visited has loved it and raved about it to other friends.
One final thing worth mentioning is that I trusted the Pipedream’s team entirely. Robert, Martin and Bartek and the team had my keys for a while after I moved in to deal with deliveries etc. and I was totally comfortable with this. In fact I recommended Pipedreams to one of my closest friends which I wouldn’t have done if I was not completely happy with them. They did a great job for me!
I engaged Robert to do a modernisation on a flat I recently purchased. As a foreigner who was not spending much time in the UK, I was somewhat sceptical, at first, at how easy Robert made it all sound. However, he was very helpful and accessible throughout the whole process from understanding my requirements, suggesting ideas, keeping me informed and soliciting my feedback along the way. His team was very competent and each member of the team was polite, helpful and even punctual! There were no surprises on the budget and the job was finished on time. Finally, buying this flat and doing the renovation was a big financial decision for me and every time I walk in through the front door I have a real feeling of satisfaction that I made the right decision(s). Robert is a big part of that.
“If you want the best in terms of design, materials and finish with a minimum of disturbance then you can do no better than Robert Brown and his Pipedreams team. Robert first designed and built a new bathroom in my flat in Chelsea 15 years ago and was my immediate choice to redesign and install a second recently. The work was completed on time and within budget and the result is exceptional.”
At present Robert and his team are at work on a second refurbishment for me – flat no. 2 – and the whole experience of having them once again work for me makes me wish I was rich and could buy up property willy-nilly. The sheer pleasure of having Robert come into a property, suggest economically and effectively what can be done, and then getting to watch the space be opened up and transformed affordably. On both projects I had a budget and in both cases Robert was able to envision something lovely without my finances going off track. As an interior planner and designer he is good at everything and what he is particularly good at – outstanding really – is sourcing affordable high end finishes that make everywhere look great. The quality of the workmanship is always high and all Robert’s workmen are very user-friendly. I am recommending Pipe Dreams to everyone.
