Listed Town House Restoration With Three Storey Extension – Wiltshire

Our brief for this restoration and extension project offered many challenges, not least persuading the conservation officer that a contemporary addition to a fine Grade II listed house was just what it needed to become a modern family home. The building was in a bad way and our clients wanted to maximise the floorspace that could be achieved on this desirable but tight town-centre site. The design includes a 3-storey extension and a new entrance, accessed by a bridge over a glazed basement below. The basement rooms now have direct access to the south-facing garden so light fills these spaces. What had been a collection of disjointed and small, gloomy rooms, many of which were uninhabitable, has now been transformed into a luxurious town house that is unique and exciting, where new and old work together.

Savernake Dental Practice

The design for this modest 3-surgery extension to a successful dental practice in Marlborough took it’s lead from the palette of the existing building, built in 2010. The project was delivered on time and on budget with local firm Carty Building Contractors. Covid 19 restrictions delayed bringing the new unit into use until the summer of 2020.

Grade Two Listed Farmhouse And Barn Conversion – Wiltshire

This characterful grade II listed farmhouse required some sensitive and imaginative conversion work to create new living spaces within the existing outbuildings and barn. Balancing the constraints of the existing fabric, the requirements of the conservation officer and our clients’ brief was a challenge. But as is so often the case, constraints make for stronger solutions, and we think the results are wonderful.

New Contemporary Barn House – Wiltshire

This striking new house nestles into its rural setting. The timeless qualities of Cotswold stone and zinc are juxtaposed with contemporary features that lift the building beyond the ordinary. Two vernacular barn-style wings are connected by a glazed link that separates living and sleeping areas and brings the landscape into the heart of the house.

Grade II Listed House Extension – Wiltshire

This pretty grade II listed terraced house made a significant contribution to the character of the village conservation area along its street frontage but had become seriously neglected at the rear. Our new wing added much needed family living space and re-engaged the house with its garden.

Listed Cottage Alterations & Extension – Wiltshire

This quirky grade II listed cottage was quite a challenge. Tucked away behind the High Street it comprised a warren of small rooms over three storeys. Our simple intervention allowed existing spaces to be re-purposed, creating a new family living/dining/sitting space which connected directly to the lovely courtyard garden.

Thatched Cottage Extension – Wiltshire

This grade II listed thatched cottage in the Avebury World Heritage site was never going to be an easy prospect to steer through the maze of statutory approvals. However, our sensitive approach found favour with the planning authority and we were able to breath new life into a neglected treasure.

Listed Farmhouse Refurbishment – Wiltshire

It doesn’t get much more historically significant than a house in the middle of the Avebury stone henge. We were privileged to have had the opportunity to bring this much treasured family home back to life, hopefully securing it’s place within the ancient village for another 200 years.

Early 20th Century House Extension – Wiltshire

This lovely Arts and Crafts house was originally designed by locally notable Architect Charles Ponting as part of the Meux family estate. Our brief was to bring the house discretely into the 21st century and make it suitable for modern family life.

Georgian House Extension – Wiltshire

A quintessential Georgian ‘dolls house’ originally built as one of a pair within the formal setting of the model farm for a large estate. The grade II listing reflects the heritage significance of the original house so our interventions had to be carefully considered to make the house suitable for modern family life whilst respecting the original character and setting of the historic building.

Extension To Village House – Wiltshire

This 1890’s terraced cottage has been brought fully up to date with a stylish ground floor extension. It was a big challenge to achieve such a wonderful sense of space with an unashamedly contemporary feel without taking away from the character of the original building, but we feel we’ve managed to achieve just that.

Extension, Refurbishment And New Pool House – Wiltshire

This house was built to a very idiosyncratic brief in the 1980’s so when our clients acquired it, they decided it all had to change. Vestiges of the original house are evident but there’s more that’s new than old. The house sits in a wonderful landscape and we chose the walled garden as the ideal place for a new indoor pool. Designed as a secret, hidden behind the old garden wall, this is where the family come to have fun and enjoy the sheltered privacy of the enclosed outdoor spaces.

Extension And Refurbishment – Wiltshire

This house commands a beautiful position overlooking the town. Our clients wanted to carry out major extensions and alterations to create their dream family home. We carefully stripped away previous additions and added new to achieve a property that looks as if it’s always been that way.

Modern Single Storey Extension – Wiltshire

We always relish the challenge of working with a listed building, transforming it into a modern place to live without destroying the character of the original. This single-storey extension runs across the rear of the house, replacing a number of very tired lean-to’s to create a new sitting room and study, as well as bringing new life to the kitchen and opening the house to the garden.

Contemporary Extension – Wiltshire

Our client wanted to transform this 1980’s house with some strikingly modern interventions. Easier said than done considering its location in the heart of the village conservation area, but we made our case and convinced the Planners to agree. The result is a beautiful home that seamlessly integrates the interior spaces with the wonderful garden.

Contemporary Extension – Wiltshire

We’ve become experts at turning rather tired 1960’s houses into contemporary family homes. This house needed some ‘TLC’ after three decades of ill-considered alterations and now sets a benchmark for the rest of the street.

New Build Queen Anne House – Wiltshire

A modern take on a Queen Anne house. This timber-framed house achieves a stunning thermal performance whilst meeting the desire of our clients to have a classic home in the heart of the village
