We were approached by our client who was looking to save a historic gatehouse that had been tagged and approved for demolition by the local authority. Our priority was to maintain the buildings historic features whilst creating a contemporary addition to house the kitchen, dining and living spaces, making the property more marketable.
We achieved this by creating two volumes that were connected to the historic structure via a seamless glass link, bringing streams of light into the living spaces.
As a result we were left with an innovative design that made for a spacious and homely living space, whilst being a profitable and cost effective development for our client.

Their aspiration for fantastic design is at the forefront of their ethos which really pushes us to create something bespoke and unique. They have always been very attentive with their construction, drawing packages and also extremely easy to work with on and off site. Our project not only looked great but also made it to the final of the Northern Design Awards.”
