Client Testimonials

“The "slum" was demolished in 2006 and in its place the Croydon-based architect Ray Hole has come up with a minor masterpiece: Hafod Eryri, the new Snowdon Mountain railway terminus and visitor centre. ”

 Jonathan Glancey
 Guardian August 2009

“Our new visitor centre has transformed the immediate impression our wildlife park makes, drawing guests in, raising expectations and then delivering on them. Creating this with Ray Hole and his team was a voyage of discovery and I have no hesitation in encouraging others to set sail with Ray if you want a first class outcome. ”

“Ray and his team combined creativity and hard work to complete our project on time and on budget. We couldn’t have gotten it done without them!”

“Having worked in the Leisure Industry now for 22 years, with many professionals, in many countries - I can say with a perfectly clear conscience that Ray Hole and his brilliant supporting team are the best architects that I have collaborated with. Their ability to innovate is second to none and yet, unusually for an architect, they are obsessed with finding the right solution and not with the built form. Having said that when it comes to the built environment their work wins prizes. I have used and recommended Ray and his team many times and will continue to do so. ”

Tony Sefton
CEO, Vision XS.

"Having worked with ray hole architects for over ten years, Ray's enthusiasm for getting to grips with how a project really needs to work, is inspirational and quite infectious. His way of looking at a scheme sometimes makes the role of a developer all the more exciting because he rarely misses an opportunity to make the development just that much more appealing and potentially, more profitable. Long may Ray and his team's inspirational ideas last; they are a credit to their profession."
