Following on from securing planning permission for this replacement dwelling in Esher, we are now well underway with the working drawing package and currently coordinating the design with the SIPS supplier. Demolition of the existing house is imminent with ground works planned to start in July.
The client is managing the site and the build arranging several trade packages direct in order to reduce the overall build costs. We’ll be following the build as much as possible and be posting regular updates as the build progresses.
Good to get the scaffolding down on this remodel project and get a preview of how the completed version may look. Looking forward to completing the interior and the Client being able to enjoy some dramatic internal spaces with some stunning views over the the Hamble river. We provided design services and then project managed the shell and exterior finishes for the Client and they took on the interior themselves in order to deliver this build on a challenging budget.
Great to drop in and see our Client in Norfolk and the results of this completed self build. Even better to see that they pushed to deliver the original design intent and technical details we prepared. We will be uploading further photos and details on the website shortly.
Great to get grant of planning for this replacement replacement dwelling in Dorset. This 4000 sq ft house adopts simple architectural detailing creating a contemporary appearance under a pitched roof form. Contemporary fenestration is complimented with clean white render with natural stone cladding adding warmth and texture.
We have already been instructed to complete the working drawings and hoping to see works commence on site this year!
Great to drop by and see this completed remodel. The light wasn’t the best for photographs so will be going back in the spring for more!
We are pleased to report grant of planning permission for our design for a house remodel in Dorset for our Client. Some minor negotiations were required during the application period, none of which diluted the design intent. We have already completed the working drawings and works have just started on site.
The design includes for a new roof with bedroom accommodation, a 2 storey side extension and a single storey rear extension creating a large open plan kitchen, dining and family area.
A mixture of natural stone, weatherboarding and natural slate transforms the existing plain appearance into a modern house with a warm and inviting character.
We are looking forward to monitoring progress and supporting the client through the construction phase.
We secured planning consent for this design in Tring, Buckinghamshire in 2016 and we’ve been delayed in posting to the blog. We have recently completed the working drawings and works commenced on site a few months ago. We are looking forward to visiting the project and seeing it progress!
Fantastic result to have secured planning permission for this replacement dwelling for our Client in Esher, Surrey. The new design replaces an existing 170m² 1970’s house with this contemporary 350m² luxury dwelling. We even managed to create an additional 75m² of bonus space in the roof pushing the gross internal area up to 425m².
We have already started producing working drawings and looking forward to supporting our Client through the build phase.
Proud to report securing this consent for a replacement dwelling for our Client in Hertfordshire. We have already commenced on the working drawings and architectural detailing and look forward to seeing progress on site in 2019.
Great to be invited back to see another completed self build project. Although it wasn’t a great day for photos I think they still demonstrate the delivery of some nice clean detailing. We took on the project and steered to client through concept design, planning and the working drawing packages including key architectural detailing.
The Client’s partially self managed the build using a general builder to undertake most of the works with a number of sub-contractors employed directly for some of the specialist packages.
We supported the Clients throughout the construction phase on hand to answer site queries and help deliver the design intent.
We are really thrilled to have secured planning permission for this stunning design for a coastal new build in Cornwall. The application sailed through the planning process and was approved by delegated powers without the need for any negotiations or amendments.
We have already been instructed to prepare working drawings and the technical design with plans to commence on site in 2019!
Absolutely thrilled how this project has turned out! It’s probably the most adventurous remodels we’ve ever undertaken on an incredibly challenging site.
The Client had the energy and ambition to take on this difficult challenge and has transformed the existing 1,500ft² bungalow into a 3,500ft² contemporary luxury residence.
The remodelled property was redesigned to take advantage of the incredible view on offer over Poole Harbour.
When we took on this project we all knew the site, the brief and the budget was going to test everybody, not least the Client. It’s safe to say that all things considered it’s been an absolute success!
We’ve had a good year in 2018, with over 30 Self Builder’s commencing the design process with us on new projects. Alongside these projects we steered a further 20 through the technical design phase some of which commenced on site and due for to complete in 2019. We have enjoyed supporting self-builders on site in 2018 and sharing the success on several successfully completed projects.
During 2018 we strengthened and developed relationships with suppliers to the self-build sector that we have worked with previously, linking up to assist our future Client’s to help deliver their own projects.
We are proud to have secured over 40 planning consents in 2018 with 34 different Local Authorities across 19 Counties. We were also thrilled to have secured planning permission for a paragraph 55 (now paragraph 79) house in the North West of England. Not bad for a CIAT registered practice!
We are looking forward to continued success and working with self builders looking to create something interesting and special!
Here’s wishing you all the best for 2019!
Fantastic to visit this completed self build in Oxfordshire. Great Client’s to work with who pushed to get as much of our original design intent into the finished article as possible.
Great to see one of our projects completed and looking great. A great result to achieve planning consent in a conservation area! The Client's have moved in and currently enjoying their new home. We'll be visiting soon and will post further photographs of the external and internal.
We are pleased to have obtained planning consent for a radical remodel of an existing bungalow in Hampshire. The photomontage shown is for our originally submitted scheme which was initially refused. Following discussions an amended scheme was submitted and consent granted on the 2nd attempt which resulted in some reductions to the central element an unfortunately diluted the architectural intent. We are hoping that the Client will appeal the original decision which has good chances of success on the basis that the difference between the refused and approved is insignificant. Although we didn’t obtain consent for the preferred scheme it’s still a great result for the Client and another example that demonstrates the value that good design can bring to self builders. It really shows how investing in design at the start of the project pays off.
The proposals elevates a 175m² tired and dated property into a 430m² modern luxury residence. Internally the new first floor storey delivers 4 large double bedrooms, 3 of which benefit from dedicated dressing rooms and en suites. We also managed to obtain consent for a first floor terrace which takes advantage of distant views over the countryside to the rear of the site. Relocating existing bedrooms to the first floor then gave an opportunity to create some fantastic living space on the ground floor.
