Client Feedback

“We commissioned Henry Milner to build a 1:1 scale reproduction of an architectural detail for an explanatory segment of a TV news investigation. Working on an extremely tight deadline he produced a fully interactive model which not only met all our requirements but looked incredible too.”  Tom Clarke, Science Editor, Channel 4

“We have been delighted with the wooden model we have received from Henry Milner. The quality of service and communication throughout the making of the model was brilliant, and they accommodated all of our comments and changes through the build. The level of detail to the model was exceptional and exceeded our expectations. The model has been used continually throughout our project, it has acted as a design tool and has aided us greatly in our meetings; Clients, planners and consultants all find the model so useful to explain the scheme. Computer visuals are nice but, we have got far more talking about the physical model than anything else on the project. We will definitely be using Henry Milner in the future to make our models.”  Helen Chandler, Leslie Jones

“Henry was a significant part of our winning team. From the beginning he helped contribute and shape the communication of the vision, whilst providing valuable input into different ways of representing the final product. All of which no doubt contributed to the success of the project.”  Tom Nelson, Arney Fender Katsalidis

“The Royal Academy of Arts worked with Henry Milner on the development of two major reconstructions of original works. These formed part of the exhibition Revolution: Russian Art from 1917 – 1932. The process lasted approximately 18 months, from commission to installation, and was an exciting and intensive process. Henry Milner’s attention to detail and planning was meticulous. In the mix of this, his creativity, sense of material and aptitude for design, resulted in two staggering installations within the exhibition. Henry Milner is undoubtedly a talented and ambitious constructor and maker, and the Royal Academy of Arts is grateful for his commitment and passion for the work that he made, which were a triumph.”  Flora Fricker, Senior Exhibitions Manager, The Royal Academy of Arts 

“Meadow Residential are extremely pleased with the model that Henry constructed. The model is large enough to pick up minor details whilst still maintaining a soft and calculated feel. Henry took time out to understand the characteristics of the building prior to works beginning, and also maintained constant dialogue with the project architect to ensure the materials used would fit the scheme correctly.”  Alex Vogel, Meadow Residential

“Henry Milner’s model of the Watts Chapel is a work of art in its own right and will be a central exhibit in the new Watts Studios. It was wonderful to work with a specialist with rare skills whose attitude throughout the process was never ‘will this do?’ but always ‘is this as absolutely excellent as it could be?’”   Nick Tromans, Brice Curator, Watts Gallery

Thanks Henry, it was absolutely fantastic working with you. We are totally thrilled with how everything went. We had about 12,000 visitors who came to see the show which is totally astonishing. We had a huge amount of positive comments about the exhibition design. You made the show something really remarkable.”   Anna Leader, RIBA

‘Henry – The model is SuperCool!’   Laura Patrizi, Acme Architecture

“Stitch worked with Henry Milner to develop a site wide model for our proposed regeneration of Marlowe Road Estate in Walthamstow.  This was an intensive process as he was making the buildings as we were designing them and he paid an extraordinary amount of attention to detail in the representation of each design feature. As a result the 1:500 model is rich and textured, with variety achieved through a range of different coloured wood veneers. Most importantly Henry is a pleasure to work with, very patient and professional, and we thoroughly enjoyed the whole process.”   Sally Lewis, Director, Stitch

“Developing these models and working with Henry Milner has been a great pleasure for me and my colleagues at the Van Abbemuseum. The production of all of the models went according to budget and plan, and the whole process was very professional. Furthermore the results on arrival were even greater than we expected. At the moment, our visitors enjoy looking at these models every day. For a museum, there can be no better proof of good work”   Willem Jan Renders, Project Leader,Van Abbemuseum

“It was pleasure working with you. In my opinion there are few things that distinguish you from the larger outfits: The quality of the output was high while the price was lower than some other quotes. But most importantly we got the benefit of direct communication with the actual model maker so we could be sure we would get exactly what we needed.”   Pero Maticevic, Partner , Fletcher Priest Architects
