Sloe cottage, Afriston

We have redesigned this detached family home  by adding a contemporary single-story extension, replacing the adjacent garage, to create a spacious open plan kitchen and dining area while enlarging the living room within the existing house with a slender pergola structure to the south facing enlarged terrace. The new design is in stark contrast to the existing house located on the fringes of Afriston village, allowing more daylight and views over the rolling hills. The building envelope is now complete, with an internal fitout to be finished in the coming weeks, blending the new part naturally with the existing structure.

Montpelier row, East Twickenham

We are starting works on the refurbishment and extension of an existing 1720’s Grade 2* listed terraced 7-bedroom family dwelling of around 390 m2 close to Marble Hill House, including the  construction of a potentially full width single-story rear extension with replacement of the existing rear infill kitchen extension, the conversion of the existing lower ground floor dining area and adjacent room to form an independent one bedroom nanny accommodation. We also redesign parts of the first & second floors to provide additional en-suite bathrooms, as well as an overall upgrade to the building envelope and thermal performance where possible, in close cooperation with the local conservation department. 

Town Centre, Richmond

We are currently designing a new detached four-bedroom family dwelling with a full basement for family living, gym and utility and plant as well as storage room on a slightly sloping site in a conservation area. The proportions of the proposed building and chosen materials mimic the surrounding family homes on the upper floors with a glazed plinth at ground level to invite daylight into the building and connect with the garden space.

Orchard Rise, Haslemere

We have been commissioned to design a detached four-bedroom family home with a connected annex building as a guest wing as well as a home office with gym and adjacent double garage. A natural swimming pond and sun covered outdoor kitchen area will be part of the new terraced landscaped garden. We are preparing the scheme for planning submission after Christmas.

Mount Ararat Road, Richmond

This project is another classic Richmond Hill townhouse in need of extension and refurbishment. We gained planning approval to remove the rear balcony at upper ground floor level in order to add a single storey extension to the rear of the property. A spacious terrace in front creates useful outdoor seating with wide sandstone steps leading up to the elevated rear garden level. Behind the widened side entrance sits a small entrance lobby with cloaks and seating bench next to a well organised utility room with a guest toilet behind underneath the external main entrance stairs. The existing floor level has been lowered to create an open plan kitchen dining and lounge area with a modern staircase leading to the upper level. The formal through reception has been redesigned and all upper bedrooms and bathrooms refurbished with a new en-suite added to the master’s bedroom. ‘Haus and Hof’ were the interior designers with us on this project. Completion is expected end of this year.
