A recent photo of our private residential project that completed last year. The scheme involved the complete overhaul, extension and redesign of a tired 1970’s detached house on a prominent site within a Conservation Area in Altrincham. The new layout brings contemporary open plan living into the heart of the home with large expanses of glazing to maximise views out to the surrounding landscape.

Looking back to a previous project which involved a large contemporary extension and complete redesign of a house in Macclesfield. Situated on an expansive green plot our proposal was to mirror the form and proportion of the existing house and create new accommodation that overlooked the garden and reconnected with the outdoor space. Hoping one day to see this built!

A look back at a past project - a bespoke private home in the Cheshire Green Belt which we successfully obtained planning for. The design was conceived as a series of black timber volumes that echoed the agricultural barn buildings dotted around the local area. Modelling the site contours allowed us to explore options for working with the sloping ground and helped the client to fully visualise our proposal.

Delighted to have planning consent granted for this contemporary addition to a 1930’s semi in south Manchester. The extension incorporates floor to ceiling glazing to maximise views out to the rear garden and sliding doors that open up the house to the outside. The stepped footprint is echoed in the design of new roof dormer which creates an additional en-suite bedroom. The design uses a simple palette of materials; weathered cedar cladding, render and fibre cement cladding. Hopefully we’ll see this start on site soon!

A look back to a previous project we designed that incorporated space for homeworking. The project included a detached garden office that opened up to the outside and visually connected to a new rear extension. A space that is undoubtedly getting plenty of use at the moment....and a likely requirement for many homes in the future.

Sectional perspective drawing to explore the internal spaces for a large private house in Bolton. The project involves the complete redesign and overhaul of the existing, much smaller property to create a contemporary 6 bed dwelling with multiple extensions and re-designed facades. The house overlooks a large landscaped garden to the rear with ground floor living spaces that open up to the outside and first floor bedrooms that benefit from a full width terrace across the back with views over the landscape beyond. Currently in for planning.

Initial sketch proposal for a new office extension in central Manchester. The design creates a more prominent office entrance that projects out to the street to give the dated office building a distinctive new identity and a contemporary new appearance. The proposal also includes a new specialist medical facility with links back to the office accommodation. An exciting project we’re looking forward to sharing more of in due course....

Another view of the bespoke house extension and remodelling project we’re currently working on in Bowdon, Altricham. The generous glazing across the rear provides expansive views out to the large garden surrounded by mature trees. The interior layout provides an open-plan kitchen, dining and living space with a new link connecting the house to a detached garage in order to create a new study and play room.

Model of a new build house in Lymm currently submitted for planning. Located within a Conservation Area and adjacent a series of Victorian properties the design respects the scale and massing of the local context with a contemporary interpretation of traditional brick housing. The internal layout takes advantage of the south facing aspect with generous glazing across all main living spaces, all of which overlook a sunken rear garden.

Early concept sketch for a new residential and community project we’ve been working on recently. The diagram for the site revolves around a new public square that connects to existing streets, creating a destination for locals and visitors. The square is overlooked by an industrial heritage building that is restored and repurposed for community/cafe use as part of the development. These spaces spill out onto the public square which is also framed by a eight new houses which overlook the surrounding natural landscape. A great brief for a great site which we hope to develop further...

The proposal for 24 new dwellings includes a mixture of new build family housing and converted units in the locally listed mansion house.

Latest image of a scheme we are working on in south Manchester. The project includes a large double storey extension and significant remodel to create an open plan family space to the rear with a new contemporary appearance. The black brick and timber cladding provides a distinctive contrast to the original, giving the dated property a much needed lift. Planning submission due shortly.

Nearing completion....just a few finishes touches left on this residential project in south Manchester. The contemporary buff brick extension provides a light filled space for cooking and socialising with a much improved connection to the outside. Great work by @rcbuildingservicesltd

COVID-19 Update

Here at Artform the health and well-being of our staff, clients and all those we work with is of the upmost importance. As such we are taking every measure we can to guard against the spread of COVID-19.

We are therefore adhering to government guidance and have been fully homeworking all week. As a practice we were already well prepared for remote working and in no way does this impact on our ability to deliver project deadlines or the services we provide. If meetings are needed we can undertake these through video conference or over the phone. If site visits or surveys are required we can undertake these using necessary precautions in line with current guidance.

It may not be business as normal but it is certainly business uninterrupted. If you have any queries then all contact details can be found on our website.

We have a wonderful team and are committed to weathering this rather unprecedented storm. Thank you for all your support and stay safe.

Very apt to see the new home office under construction on our project in Hale Barns, Cheshire. This forms part of the complete overhaul and redesign of the existing house, providing a dedicated workspace for our client from where to run her business. And a feature window seat to enjoy the view!

Site model of a new build house we have designed for a garden plot in Lymm, Cheshire. Located within a Conservation Area and adjacent a series of Victorian properties the approach has been to develop a sensitively designed contemporary home that contributes positively to the local area with a palette of materials that corresponds to the local vernacular. Fingers crossed for planning approval!
