Georgian Splendour

February 6, 2023 / By rachel

The project involved complete refurbishment of the large detached property, along with the addition of a generous extension to the rear. Not only has the property been returned to its original Georgian splendour as a family house, but the works to the rear have created a fabulous, open plan kitchen-diner living space that connects to […]

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.

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 […]

The Daily Bread, Hereford

May 24, 2018 / By admin

St Michael's and All Angels church has been fully restored and it is wonderful to see the building taking it's place as a center for the community once again. (To see the details of the church restoration visit our St Michael's and All Angels page.) The best way to preserve historic buildings is to keep [...]

The Buttermarket – RIBA Competition Award

May 24, 2018 / By admin

RRA's Buttermarket entry was designed to establish an over-arching brand identity which would work with existing market-traders, and purveyors of local Herefordshire food heritage, to manage, promote and incubate new visitors and foot fall within this historic Victorian food hall. RRA, in collaboration with the UK’s leading independant markets agent Quarterbridge, developed an exciting proposal [...]
