TRANSCRIPT

  • ARCHITECTURE PORTFOLIO

  • Our dedicated architecture team are a key component of the

    successful delivery of our ‘concept to completion’ offer.

    Our creativity brings our cl ients’ objectives to l i fe. By understanding

    the impact of design within the rural environment, we special ise

    in creating innovative, yet practical , options for a large array of

    schemes. Throughout, we are focussed on adding value through

    high quality design and place making.

    This portfol io demonstrates the variety of projects we have

    worked on.

  • HOW WE WORK

    It al l starts with a conversation. We l isten to

    your ideas and what you want to achieve and the

    sketching begins.

    MEETING

    We research the site in detai l , looking at history

    and landscape. The opportunities and constraints

    emerge and we address these creatively.

    RESEARCH

    We look at similar projects and show you

    approaches you may not have seen before.

    The images are a primer for an intense design

    conversation.

    PRECEDENTS

    Sketching is a great way to communicate. When

    it comes to buildings, drawings speak more

    clearly than words. In the hands of an architect,

    a simple pencil and paper sti l l have the power to

    communicate and drive a design forward.

    SKETCHES

    The site plan draws together the different strands

    of the design. It is important that it is very clear

    and attractive, as this is the core document others

    wil l refer to.

    S ITE PLANS

    Physical models help to develop the design and

    show you complex three-dimensional relationships.

    Surprising and engaging; even relatively simple

    models can be enormously effective and useful .

    3D MODELS

  • DARLEY ECO-HOUSE I

    Working with the cl ient, we produced a design for a new house on an open,

    sloping site in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

    Incorporating a dynamic, landscape-based concept we used indigenous

    dry-stone walls as a device to structure a single ‘r ibbon’ design. In this way

    the project was designed deliberately to blend into the landscape, using local ,

    natural materials ; a beautiful home anchored in nature.

  • This new-build house had an unusual posit ioning on a tight, sloping site in an

    Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It was designed so as to minimise the

    impact on views from the top of the slope. This was managed by incorporating a

    tiered arrangement with access from the top and blending internal and external

    spaces so as to bring the feel of the landscape into the house.

  • WATLINGTON SAFARI PARK

    This excit ing project centres around a unique and striking ‘st ingray-inspired’

    design for the main visitor building. The site has been designed to create a new

    wildl i fe conservation reserve in Norfolk, with a purpose-built education faci l ity,

    clubhouse and guest lodge accommodation.

    FORESTRY HUB

    This new forestry operations hub for a major estate cl ient, includes visitor and

    retai l faci l it ies as well as sawmil l , biomass and joinery faci l it ies. It was designed

    in a way which incorporated innovative, t imber self-build structures so that the

    estate could construct much of the building themselves using their own, local ly

    grown materials .

  • STONE FARM

    This project involved the delivery of a rural off ice centre in an Area of

    Outstanding Natural Beauty in the Cotswolds. The design includes a delightful ,

    landscaped courtyard and pavi l ion, whilst the upper f loor of the building

    incorporates a barrel-vault form to mimic local agricultural structures and

    minimise the building’s impact on the local landscape.

    STAMFORDHAM

    This development of 18 new-build houses in an edge-of-vi l lage location in

    rural Northumberland comprises of a mixture of terraced, detached and

    almshouse-style properties. There has been particular thought given to the

    sensit ive design of external spaces in order to create a relaxed and attractive

    setting and to the placement of buildings in a manner which minimises the

    impact on the local landscape.

  • QUAKER COTTAGE

    This project composed of extensions and alterations to a l isted cottage in

    the Cotswolds. Due to the sensit ive and historic nature of the building there

    has been extensive negotiations with the local authority, with an emphasis on

    hand-drawn presentation techniques in order to communicate the sensit ivity

    of the design.
