Interior visual for a large extension and remodel of a 1930’s house in south Manchester. The client brief was for a generous open-plan space that opens the house up to the rear garden and maximises natural light. The asymmetrical roof design creates a contemporary look externally with a feature timber lined ceiling to provide warmth and character. Looking forward this starting on site later this year.

Another shot of our completed residential project in Altrincham. The scheme involved the complete overhaul, extension and redesign of a tired 1970’s detached house on a prominent site within a Conservation Area. The key principle of the re-design was to maximise natural light and connectivity to the rear garden so the scheme features an oriel window seat and a large pivot door to the outside. Delighted to see a very happy client living in a drastically different house!

Design for a new build house in Lymm which we are preparing to submit for planning. The garden plot is located within a Conservation Area and sits adjacent handsome Victorian properties. The approach has been to develop a sensitively designed contemporary home that contributes positively to the local area which a palette of materials that corresponds to the local vernacular. Fingers crossed for approval!

Another view of our barn conversion in Lymm which was recently granted consent. The scheme looks to repurpose and restore the original agricultural barn, converting it into a bespoke single dwelling. Original features are retained and celebrated and a new contemporary extension is added for additional living space. A lovely rural context to work with.

Delighted to have planning consent granted at committee for our Yorkshire wedding venue project. This unique project involves the conversion of a series of farm buildings into a bespoke venue with guest accommodation, new build insertions and external landscaping. Included in the design is the restoration and conversion of grade II listed barns, currently derelict and in a state of partial collapse. A great site with potential for a really special project once complete.

Delighted to have (finally!) received planning consent for this barn conversion project in Lymm, Cheshire.
Located in the Cheshire Green Belt and surrounded by rural farmland, our proposal seeks to restore the original agricultural barn and repurpose it as a single residential dwelling. The design celebrates the building’s original features and introduces double height spaces, greater levels of natural light and a contemporary yet sensitive extension. The scheme also includes new landscaping to create a walled garden, driveway and garage.

Site model for a new rural housing project in the Cheshire Green Belt. The scheme involves the conversion of an existing mansion house and ancillary farm buildings along with a series of contemporary new dwellings that replace a disused agricultural shed. The layout includes a pedestrianised route which runs through the heart of the development creating communal landscaped courtyards. Wonderful context to work with, looking forward to developing this further.

Site model for a new build house project in Lymm, Cheshire. Modelling making plays an important part in our design process and helps us to fully consider our designs in context. Which is especially important in this Conservation Area. They are also great tools for conveying ideas to clients and planners. Looking forward to submitting this for planning soon.

Initial concept design for a new restaurant situated within a large public park in Manchester. The proposal is for a timber framed pavilion building that maximises views across the park and responds to its landscaped setting within the trees. An external terrace provides outdoor seating and a strong visual connection to the park. A lovely context to work with.

Our proposal for a new extension and interior remodelling of a traditional Victorian terrace in Hale, Altrincham. The black brick design provides a contemporary addition in contrast to the traditional red brick exterior whilst the reworked layout provides open plan family living space with a feature window seat and high levels of natural light. Recently submitted for planning.

Street elevation drawing of our housing scheme in south Manchester which was recently approved at planning committee. The development will create new family houses on a derelict backland site that is currently home to disused tennis courts. The design and brick detailing references nearby Victorian and Georgian housing that characterise the local area.
