16/12/2020

Our entry to the @ribacomps Home of 2030 competition focused on people and community with shared outdoor spaces for residents at the heart of the scheme providing opportunities for socialising, food growing and relaxation. Our proposal made the longlist, selected as one of the top 29 entries out of 208.

The houses offer flexible layouts across a variety of typologies allowing different user groups to live alongside one another to form well-connected, sustainable neighbourhoods. Each home has access to outdoor space on every level via courtyard gardens, upper floor terraces and balconies. Timber framed modular construction provides a low carbon energy efficient approach that can be applied at scale across a variety of densities.

Developed with @hugrhomesltd and @extremelow.energy
Congratulations to the winning teams recently announced.

One of our completed projects from last year. A large pivot door and oriel window help to flood the kitchen/dining space with natural light whilst maximising views out to the garden. All helping to provide a much better connection to the outside whilst also animating the rear facade of the house.

Proposal for a house extension in Wilmslow. Adopting brick tones and details to compliment the existing house, the design creates much needed family living space for three generations with generous glazed openings to maximise views of the large garden. Submitted for planning.

Sneak preview of our recently completed project in Hale Barns. This involved the compete re-design of an existing property with a new two storey rear extension clad in light grey brickwork to give the home a fresh, contemporary feel.
Lovely work by @contactdesignbuild.

Lovely image by our good friends @mf3d_cgi of our recently approved new build house in Lymm. Located in a Conservation Area and adjacent a locally listed Victorian house, the new dwelling acts as a contemporary interpretation of the the local vernacular and uses scale, form and materiality to respond sensitively to the setting. Looking forward to getting this one built....

Very pleased that our design for a pool and leisure building has been approved. Situated within the grounds of a locally listed Victorian villa in Wilmslow the new building is conceived as a low lying pavilion sat within the landscape, connecting to the expansive garden beyond and benefitting from views back to the original house. Vertical bronze fins across the glazed facade provide solar shading and create dappled light internally.

Great to be working with @edenplanning on this.

A look back at our proposal for community-led housing in the Lake District as part of our submission for an @ribacomps competition last year.

Located in the heart of South Lakeland our proposal for 40 houses was for low energy, flexible live/work units that reference the local vernacular and the surrounding rural landscape. The high density development is centred around a linear communal garden with a community hub and cafe to help integrate the scheme with the existing village.

Another photo of our recently completed project in south Manchester which includes a new rear extension that adds natural light to the back of the house and creates a contemporary space for cooking and entertaining. Exposed steel beams and brickwork add character with complimentary finishes chosen by our client.

Another image of our residential scheme in south Manchester which was recently granted consent. The proposal is for a pair of new build semi detached houses on a large garden plot to infill the gap in the streetscape. In addition the scheme includes the remodelling and refurbishment of the adjacent property to create three contemporary family homes across three levels. The form and detailing is a response to the local context whilst providing a fresh new approach on what is a tight urban plot. Looking forward to seeing these get built.

Great image as always by the talented @mf3d_cgi

Lovely day for a site visit to our English Martyrs housing project that we originally started working on at the start of 2018. So it’s rewarding to now see it finally starting to take shape with the spire of the church which gives the project it’s name, visible beyond.

Design for a contemporary house in north Stockport. The site sits within a conservation area and borders a small park, with a 1970’s apartment building on one side and a grade II listed church and school hall opposite. The concept is a direct response to the client’s brief and the local context. The upper volume is clad in pale brick and split by a triple height glazed stairwell. The angular roofs reflect the geometry of listed buildings and a dark, profiled metal cladding grounds the building onto the site.

Concept diagram for our @homeof2030 submission. Our proposal focuses on people and community with shared outdoor spaces for residents at the heart of the scheme providing opportunities for socialising, food growing and relaxation.
This courtyard arrangement provides a green heart with linkages to the surrounding neighbourhood. It is overlooked by the houses which vary in typology and design to offer a mixed tenure and custom build options.
Each home has access to outdoor space on every level via courtyard gardens, upper floor terraces and balconies. Timber framed modular construction provides a low carbon energy efficient approach that can be applied at scale across a variety of densities.

We didn’t make it to the shortlist but the design process has opened up new ways of approaching future housing design that we look forward to incorporating in our projects. Developed with @hugrhomesltd and @extremelow.energy

Congratulations to all those on the shortlist!

A look back at a past project for a bespoke private house on a stunning plot in rural Cheshire. The design incorporated a sequence of living spaces in a linear arrangement across the prow of a sloping site in order to maximise the expansive views beyond. The black timber clad volumes reflect the barn aesthetic of the local agricultural area. A SIPS timber frame, two ground source heat pumps and solar panels created a carbon neutral home with low embodied energy. Located in the Green Belt and approved as a replacement dwelling.
