- Drawing board, to visualisations, to construction...
Challenges often spark creativity, and this small project was no exception. Our clients brought this site to us with an extant outline consent for 4 dwellings. It quickly became clear that the original designers had paid little attention to constraints, with the large TPO trees on-site significantly reducing the developable area. We worked closely alongside our clients and arboriculturists to explore a range of development options, resulting in a new design which successfully balanced the tight site constraints and challenging access arrangements, against the clients detailed brief to maximise gross internal areas and unlock the full potential of the site. It has been a pleasure to collaborate with our clients throughout the planning and technical design stages, and we have also been pleased to provide them with a full visualisation package to support their forthcoming sales launch. Big thanks also to Paul Brown at 360 Dragonfly for the aerial views.
- Breathing New Life into Old!
We were delighted to receive progress pictures of this small self-build barn conversion we recently designed for a client in rural France. We worked closely with our British clients to ensure that their brief was carefully balanced against the importance of retaining the character of the original building. As well as extensive remedial and stonework including raising of openings to accommodate modern adults, this sensitive conversion includes a a new roof with mezzanine level bedroom overlooking a double height vaulted space with a full-height stone chimney breast and open fire. New roof dormers will provide additional light and headroom whilst framing long views across the breath-taking Bretagne countryside. Once completed, the barn will offer ancillary living space to the main residence to accommodate guests or holiday lets, and we cant wait to visit once its completed!

- 'Bluetiles' given the go-ahead!
We are delighted to have recently gained full planning consent for another bespoke waterfront residence in a prominent location on the north Kent coast. The scheme was carefully developed to holistically extend and re-configure an existing dwelling, whilst enhancing the biophilic relationship between the house and its breath-taking surroundings. The design approach called for a sympathetic materials palette and carefully considered approach to form, mass and construction detailing in order to open up panoramic views out to the seascape, whilst preserving and respecting the distinctive character of the original property.

- Little Randolph's Farm
Detailed planning has just been submitted for the re-development of this former farmstead in a rural location in the Weald of Kent for our clients Wedgewood Homes. Inspired by the local vernacular and the historic courtyard farms of the area, the scheme seeks to replace the dilapidated farm buildings with a collection of six luxury homes set around a central walled courtyard. The design represents a modern interpretation of the traditional Barn form, juxtaposing a contemporary approach to design and detailing with traditional materiality to create a distinctive scheme with a strong sense of place which remains sympathetic to its surroundings.
