Larden Hall | Acton

This restricted, inner city site in London presented an exciting design challenge to provide modern and light apartments.

The overlooking to the rear and side elevation called for clever space planning to provide the 9 apartments with light interiors and outlooks across the cityscape.

Working with London developer Zulu Fish we gained successful planning and worked closely throughout the build to complete the scheme in 2020.

342 Sandbanks Road | Poole

This exciting new build home is sited on the banks of Poole Harbour and nestled into the pine trees and steep landscape.

The concept is to provide an understated single storey modern home from the busy road to the north that then opens up to the south and stunning panoramic views across the Purbecks.

The scheme was approved for planning in late 2021 and is to commence on site in 2022.

Deheers | Weymouth

Located on the historical harbourside in Weymouth Deheers was originally a key part of the thriving 19th Century quay. The building has gone through many transformations and uses over the last 150 years and was a little unloved when purchased by local developer Mickey Jones.

Mickey’s vision was to breathe new life into this key heritage assets bringing into the 21st century whilst respecting the buildings heritage and character.

Rather than squeezing multiple small residential units into the existing floor plan, large spacious and open planned apartments have been created. The apartments are modern and clean but celebrate the texture and character of the existing building.

On the ground floor a thriving E Bike Cafe has taken residence bringing the life to the quayside.

The success of the scheme is due both to the ‘raise the bar’ approach of the client and by the skill, dedication and care of all the team that made the design a reality.

Presenting the vision at the planning stage was key to gaining the approval for this Grade II Listed building and the final development’s success has been recognised with a Civic Trust Award.

Hambury Bottom | Lulworth Cove

This scheme involved the replacement of an existing dwelling set within the Dorset AONB and Lulworth Conservation Area with a new 9 bedroom home.

The brief was to retain the character and features of the existing house whist providing a contemporary take on the interiors and space planning.

The scheme is defined by a feature subterranean swimming pool and gym facility.

It was key to the schemes success that the new home sat comfortably in the surrounding local context and it minimised the impact on the natural setting.

This was achieved by setting the four storey building into the terrain with the pool area sculpted into the grounds with Purbeck stone and the fourth storey sat within a thatched roof with a feature roof light flooding the interior with natural light.

The house was completed in late 2017.

Labrador Drive | Poole

This project started as a run of the mill terraced house within a 1980’s housing development in Poole. 
Our clients, who are passionated about design, wanted to transform the internal layout which was fairly standard.
The scheme looked at taking the guts out of the existing and replacing this with a series of spaces that enhanced natural light and eased natural flow through the three floors.
The major feature of the existing house was the incredible view across to Brownsea Harbour and we also looked to maximises this by making the internal arrangement more open plan and framing this view where possible.
On the first floor a double height vaulted spaces was created with a mezzanine area for the master bedroom.
A feature open tread stair and glazed floor adds to the openness and airy feel.

Grasmere | Shillingstone

This new build house was designed specifically for a family that were looking to replace their existing bungalow and enhance their lifestyle by creating something completely new.
The design responds to the way the family wanted to interact both now and in the future with both open plan and private spaces.
A double height living space with large scale glazed wall provides fantastic views to the countryside beyond.
The design, although contemporary in form and detailing utilises local natural materials such as Purbeck stone dry stone walling and timer cladding.
The house utilised an innovative German factory pre fabricated build system that resulted in the main structure of the house being built in only 5 days.
The house featured on BBC2’s Building Dream Homes in June 2014.

Dilly Lane | Barton-on-Sea

This project provided a great opportunity to take a 1960’s flat roof house and transform it with an extensive redesign that involved refurbishment and extension. Working closely with our clients we created a new ‘family inspired’ living environment that provided living spaces that are light, spacious, flexible and responded to the way our clients wanted to live. A major focus was to reconnect the house with the rear garden. This was achieved by creating ‘outdoor rooms’ on differing levels that related back to the internal living spaces through large glazed sliding panels.

The house was completed April 2010.
