Cotswolds Country House

September 28, 2022 / By admin

To meet the clients brief for a well-functioning, family home, we redesigned the layout of the house dramatically, adding a two-storey front extension, a small side extension and reconfiguring of the loft to include two mono-pitch dormer windows. All of which increased the useable floor space significantly. At the same time the aesthetic of the […]

Contemporary Extension to Victorian Semi-Detached

May 12, 2021 / By admin

As with many of these Victorian properties, the kitchen was a narrow, dark room with limited space, which, when the properties were built was solely used for kitchen purposes, bathing in front of the range every Sunday and never, ever, for entertaining guests. These days, however, the kitchen is the beating heart of the home […]

Feasibility Study Herefordshire Golf Club

November 29, 2020 / By admin

RRA’s scheme sought to reuse the existing structure to minimise unnecessary costs, whilst reconfiguring the space to provide a multi-use venue.

October 29, 2019 / By admin

Following a year-long search, our clients finally found this property, whilst the location and land were ideal the property did not suit their requirements, however, with some consideration and careful adaptation we were able to create their dream home. The property was to be a final home so the brief needed to future proof for […]

Beechcroft

July 16, 2019 / By admin

The house occupies a site that was originally developed in the 1950’s. The wider site would have formed the extensive grounds of Fownhope Court. An impressive gentleman’s house, complete with; a lake, a waterfall, water sluice to regulate the lake height, mature trees, rhododendrons and other spectacular estate planting. Alas this has long since gone […]

The Piggery

July 9, 2019 / By admin

RRA was commissioned to design a scheme on this rural site incorporating a number of residential dwellings and workshops, with the requirements that the buildings were to be in keeping with the agricultural setting whilst still being contemporary. Particular attention was given to positioning the buildings to optimise the sun path and maximise the stunning […]
