Extension using Traditional Materials to a Detached House on the Downs. The house has been extended and altered several times already. This extension provides a Double Garage with a bedroom and bathroom over. The structural shell is an insulated timber frame which will be clad in sawn timber boarding under a handmade clay tile roof.
Transformation in Cowes – Design: We took a tired 1950s bungalow in Cowes and transformed it into a crisp modern home making the best of Solent glimpses from the new master bedroom and potential roof terrace
Art Deco House in Freshwater: ‘Vista’ was built in 1935 as a hip-roofed bungalow with some art deco features. In 2016, we removed the roof and extended the property in insulated timber frame to create the art deco style house that you see today.
New build, Cranmore: This new house replaced a single storey chalet in the woods at Cranmore built in the 1930’s. The clients wanted a 21st century eco-home in the style of a rural barn. The project is a self build. The green systems comprise photovoltaic panels on the roof that power a ground source heating system that powers the under-floor heating and preheats the hot water. The house was designed and orientated to make best use of the sun’s track over the sky. The house makes more power than it uses which means that the owners sell the excess electricity they generate, thereby receiving a cheque rather than a bill every quarter from Southern Electric.
Extension, near Godshill: Pencil sketch visualisation to show a design doubling the size of an existing bungalow. The new barn-style wing provides open plan living, dining and kitchen spaces and the existing structure is converted to 5 en-suite bedrooms, entrance, cloaks and utilities.
Oak framed house, Bembridge: This new Green Oak Framed house was designed by Carpenter Oak of Devon. We were retained as Executive Architects. We obtained Planning and Building Regulations Approval and Administered the Building Contract for this prestigious new home in Bembridge.
Replacement Chalet: This project started life as an Extension and Alteration job but the original 1920’s timber frame was found to be in such a poor state that we ended up replacing the structure from Damp Proof Course upwards!

The pool slides out from under the traditional hipped roof tiled in green glazed pan-tiles to match the original house.
