We were approached by the clients who wished to gain additional space within the roof but with a modern, contemporary feel. We worked closely with them to achieve the desired scheme and they were delighted with the outcome.
The brief for this project was to demolish the existing building and to come up with a design for three townhouses. We wanted to achieve a contemporary, 'beach-house' feel to the buildings as the site was adjacent to the beach and we felt the design should reflect the surroundings. The materials used for the build were chosen to achieve this look and worked perfectly.
This attractive property was situated in a protected area so therefore the design had to be sympathetic to its surroundings using materials in keeping with the environment and the architecture of the house. The use of oak and glass ensured that the extension had the ‘outside, inside’ feeling that the clients wanted to achieve.
The owners of this property wanted us to design a large extension and a complete refurbishment of the entire house. Full Planning permission was required to carry out the proposals and the end result was a vastly altered and much improved property, with increased living space and a more aesthetically pleasing exterior.
Our brief for this project started off as a development in a large rear garden to an existing property. The clients wanted to build 2 contemporary dwellings with a unique, modern twist enabling spacious accommodation and plenty of light. The images above show a CAD drawing of the proposed layout and a visual image created by one of our technicians which enabled the clients to get a clear idea of the finished design prior to construction. This visual also assisted in the Planning process by allowing the Local Authority officer overseeing the project to fully understand the scheme.
An example of a small Commercial development. Our client approached us to design a low-level business park on land adjacent to an existing business. The site is located in an area of AONB so the design needed to blend in with the surrounding landscape. Due to the sensitive location, various methods were used to achieve this; natural materials, low level lighting and renewable resources to keep to the brief of ‘green architecture’.
