Design for a pool and leisure building 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.

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.

Delighted to receive planning consent for this new build house on a garden plot 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 built....

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!

Delighted to receive planning consent for this pair of new build houses on a plot in south Manchester. The scheme also 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 to the streetscape on what is a tight urban plot. Looking forward to seeing these get built.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

15/07/2020

Our design for a residential scheme on the edge of Lancaster includes the conversion of a 19th Century Manor House and a contemporary extension alongside. The original house was previously used as a hotel and is a locally listed building in an AONB. The conversion to apartments removes previous unsympathetic extensions and reorganises the internal spaces to celebrate the building’s original features. The new extension is sensitively designed to respect the siting and context of the house with proportions and material palette that complement the original building. A glass link connects the two parts, providing circulation space and access for residents. The development provides 13 apartments with landscaped communal space and access to outside space for residents, all within a green setting and a backdrop of mature trees.

Our client has sent us some lovely interior photos of their (nearly complete!) extension and remodel. These hint at a beautifully finished project so we’re looking forward to seeing it once complete. The scheme includes a rear extension that opens up to the outside to create a large kitchen diner for socialising with exposed brickwork and steel beams.

Planning application submitted for a pair of new build family houses on an infill plot in south Manchester. The design is a contemporary take on the surrounding local vernacular with complementary brickwork and facade detailing. The scheme also includes the refurbishment and redesign of an existing house on the site.

Planning application submitted for this contemporary house extension in Hale, Altrincham. The proposal opens up the back of the house and creates an L-shaped design that maximises light and views whilst respecting the impact on the adjoining neighbour. The red brick tone and detailing reflects the characteristics of the conservation area opposite the site. A metal clad dormer completes the elevation and provides a new master en-suite in the roof.

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!
