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 […]

Portland Square

May 12, 2021 / By admin

Located in Cheltenham’s trendy Pittville area was a very tired one-bed flat, with draughty windows, decrepid wiring and an old bathroom positioned at the end of the kitchen. Our clients wished to re-model the flat to improve the layout and maximise the value. On visiting the property we discovered the old staircase to the basement […]

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 […]

Dutch Barn, near Hereford

May 25, 2020 / By admin

Often overlooked, Dutch Barns were mainly built during the depression when resources were scarce. Consequently, they have been undervalued and often demolished or left to rot. It is only in recent years that architects and designers have managed to get local authorities to recognise these structures as worthy of conversion and part of the British agricultural heritage.

Curtilage Listed Coach House

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 […]

Daisybank

July 17, 2019 / By admin

Whilst the site was a good size for the building, the working area was tight due to the very steep slope and limited access. Therefore, to minimise construction costs RRA designed the replacement dwelling to use the existing building footprint and foundations, and kept the ridge height the same as the existing house. The garage […]

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 […]
