We have been invited to develop proposals for a new housing scheme in Croydon. More soon.
A new build townhouse in London. Currently in planning the proposal will reuse existing material from the demolition of an used garage and boundary walls to create a contemporary 3 bedroom home.
Responding to the awkward geometry of the site the house will be comprised of interconnecting rooms accessed via a hall and stair which will be top lit.
A 1930's chalet style bungalow in Surrey is being refurbished to create a new home for our clients. When completed a new dining room and kitchen will face a mature garden that overlooks an historic graveyard contained within substantial and sculptural brick additions
Additional rooms for entertaining and work will be formed within the existing footprint of the house and a new master bedroom suite will be accessed from a bespoke stair linking the public ground floor and private first.
The project is due for completion in summer 2018
South Croxted Road
A house on the Dulwich Estate in London has been refurbished to create a family home. In response to the setting terrazzo flooring, bespoke joinery and a restricted colour palette have been used to provide a robust backdrop to daily life.
An Edwardian villa in West London has been extended to provide a room for the preparation of food. Responding to the setting the addition utilises reclaimed stock brick to create robust generously scaled accommodation. An oak parquet floor extends from the house into the new room creating an explicit connection between old and new.
Despite its apparent size the house needed a new room in which to entertain. Designed for a professional couple and their family a new kitchen, dining room and scullery have been added to a large semi-detached stone built villa. Larch cladding panels were painted to compliment the soot stained grit stone elevations against which the new dining room sits.
A house with two courtyards. In East London we created a new terrace and garden to provide a creative couple with sorely needed external space in which to relax. In another courtyard bounded on 4 sides by high walls an additional childs bedroom has been inserted.
A 1962 end of terrace house in Crystal Palace was extensively refurbished to provide improved accommodation for our clients and their young family. Houses of this period offered contemporary living that were seen as aspirational but over time and due to unsympathetic alterations their inherent character has often been eroded.
Our proposal addresses the inherently vertical character of the house, with the ground and first floor windows being treated as a two storey bay with a more private arrangement above.
To the street the arrangement of the elevations have been retained as originally intended but renovated throughout.
The client asked us to modernise her kitchen and provide her with a better dining room and garden room from where she could work.
Given the modest scale of the commission attention was given to bespoke joinery and good quality components. A low wall designed to bookend the sink and drainer also provides a moment of sociability being at a height which allows a family member to stand and talk.
Since their completion the rooms have also been used as a private gallery.
A commission to propose a means of proving guest accommodation for the owner of a leading fashion showroom in Yorkshire.
Situated in an historic garden setting, proposals were developed for a scheme that comprised 3 large villa forms in response to the context.
Lake Isle of Innisfree
Commissioned by SEE3 Portas Pilot and The Sydenham Society proposals were developed for an unused site in Lewisham.
Working with a group of MA students from Kingston University a report was prepared that offered a number of ideas about how this under valued and neglected backland site could be better used to bring tangible benefits to the community.
A mix of housing, workspace and creche facilities were developed with a clear, urban scale and density and presented to local stakeholders and residents at a number of public events.
The resulting document was subsequently used to generate a discussion about the long term development of this part of Lewisham.
Hannah Barry Gallery
Working with a group of MA students from Kingston University a new project space was designed and built for the Hannah Barry Gallery in London.
Given the sites industrial heritage and character a cement board clad timber framed structure was developed to provide storage and work rooms and built on site over a 2 week period.
The commission was completed as part of the Kingston University School of Architecture Live Project programme.
