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.

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.

Curtilage Listed Coach House

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.

Ford Abbey – Boutique Hotel

May 24, 2018 / By admin

The basic fundamental design approach has been the careful conservation repair of important heritage and the combination of all the service and fit-out demands of a 5 star hotel. We developed with the client body a hotel format and room strategy that allowed development of the brand and negotiation within existing structure. Wherever possible, the [...]

All Saints’ Church

May 24, 2018 / By admin

This was achieved through: sensitive insertion of flexible and adaptable spaces, the introduction of a café / restaurant to populate the space, and the creation of a mezzanine floor within the south aisle. This allows the nave to remain a free and open space allowing for liturgical and / or secular uses. The interventions are [...]
