the international design & architecture awards

we are delighted to announce that 3s architects were the winner of the overall development award in the international design & architecture awards 2017.

the international design & architecture awards reward the best in design from across the globe, hosted by leading interior design magazine design et al.

the aim of the international design & architecture awards is really very simple: we want to create an opportunity firstly for designers, architects and developers to showcase their work, but more than that to enable design et al readers and the global design community to see and to celebrate some of the best design schemes, product launches and innovation from throughout the world.

the awards have grown at an unprecedented and incredible rate into a respected global event, with more than 200 design companies from around the world competing annually. at design et al we remain focused on exploring new boundaries in design terms and very much look forward to receiving your application.

longmeads, high street, ingatestone

we are currently working on the designs to this detached family country home with the idea to extend and repair the appearance of the building whilst adding a new master bedroom to the top floor, adding a gabled outrigger building to the rear of the main house, with several single storey extensions to the rear and the side, gently positioned as an intermediate structure between the elevated main building and the lush garden surrounding the house. swimming pool house and a gym building as standalone structures will be added at a later stage.

sloe cottage, west street, alfriston, east sussex

planning application has been submitted for a single storey extension to an existing detached family home on the fringes of alfriston within the south downs national park. the proposed building replaces an existing outdated extension and garage facing the front of the plot. our suggested materials of vertical timber cladding together with slim framed glass elements and sliding doors will contribute to the country style character of the area.

marlborough road, richmond

after a long preparation period, we have finally started site works on this 5-storey townhouse mimicking the neighbouring property we completed around five years ago. the former garage to the front will be replaced by a sizeable utility room with a separate entrance from the front drive which is also connected to the open plan kitchen and dining room. a guest toilet and boiler room is located underneath the external stairs, with a modern open tread staircase leading to the upper hallway. a new study will form part of the side extension on the upper floor with access from the through lounge next to the main entrance hall. the upper floors will be renovated, windows upgraded and insulated where necessary whilst the building will be fitted with a modern heating system. a small balcony on top of the new flat roof structure at ground floor level will enable views over the sizeable rear garden. the project is projected to be completed end of 2020.

we have just been appointed by the parish church to create a new design for the community hall at the rear of the property with the surrounding area. following the completion of a master plan for the site, the project will be implemented in three phases and will stretch over the next three years.

the pines, frensham

this detached double fronted building settles in front of a gently sloping garden. it will receive a full width single story extension to the rear with a sunken snug to the side. a separate yoga and small office studio replacing the current garage will complete the ensemble. this project is currently at the design stage.

friars stile road, richmond

we just received planning approval for the conversion of this semi-detached town house within the richmond conservation area for a two-storey rear extension complementing the completed extension of the neighbouring home as well as redesign of lower and upper ground floor as well as first floor levels. once finished, the rear reception room will open up as a gallery to the void of the tall rear extension with a stand alone sculptural staircase leading down to kitchen and dining. the front entertainment room opens up to the new light well, the rear terrace projects further into the long garden connected by gentle wide natural stone steps. this project is planned to go on site end of may 2020. 

onslow road, richmond

following the successful conversion of a townhouse in marlborough road, we applied for a two-storey infill extension to the side of this property with replacement of the traditional upper ground floor timber framed conservatory with a modern frameless glass extension. the lower ground floor has been completely redesigned with an open plan kitchen area to the front and dining and informal living to the rear whilst we opened the rear facade introducing large sliding doors. the outdoor terrace has been widened and will be covered with portland stone as both cheeks of the rear facade whilst implementing a new retaining wall with glazed balustrades and stairs to the upper level rear garden. a new sliding gate secures the redesigned resin bonded driveway, the facade has been chemically cleaned and repainted where needed.
