We have been appointed to prepare a revised planning application for a major mixed-use development in south-west London for First Base. The scheme will feature apartments, houses, co-working space as well as a new pocket park and riverside walk. The application will be submitted early in 2017.

Our modern garden studio near Lewes has received planning permission. Designed as a simple, shed-like form clad in black corrugated sheeting, it is designed to contrast with the adjacent main dwelling while sitting comfortably in its semi-rural setting. The interior features a double-height study, sleeping platform, WC and small kitchen space. Start on site will be later this year.


February 2016

We have submitted a planning application for the refurbishment and extension of Vallance Hall, a former postal sorting office in Hove, to provide enhanced offices for Engleharts Solicitors, and five highly sustainable houses on the plot of land to the rear. The new extensions are expressed in a simple contemporary way that compliments but not mimics the existing building, with brick facades and concrete detailing.  


September 2015

We have completed a modest but highly sustainable extension to a house in Old Malling, Lewes. The exterior is clad in black-stained timber, with a zinc roof. The interior has a vaulted ceiling with exposed rafters to give a sense of space and drama, which is completed by the inclusion of doors to all three sides, allowing the space to open up to the beautiful, partially wooded setting on the edge of the Ouse valley.


May 2015

We have received planning consent for the extension and remodelling of a large house in Lewes. The bold design features zinc shingles to the front elevation and timber cladding to the side and rear.

March 2014

We have been appointed on a significant project in Lewes - the complete refurbishment and extension of a large house on one of the town's premier residential roads. The brief is to reconfigure the layout of the house so it connects better with the beautiful garden and to add a range of spaces at the side, rear and top of the house. A planning application will be submitted later in the Summer with a view to starting on site later this year.


February 2014

We have been formally appointed to undertake the full refurbishment of a Grade II Listed house in Kingston, near Lewes. The intention is to strip back later additions and modifications to reveal the original character and layout of the building, and to add a modern glazed extension at the rear.


December 2013

We have been commissioned to design a highly sustainable, detached family house in the High Weald AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), on a former light industrial site. Initial design is underway and a planning application will be submitted early in 2014.

Two new commissions this month for domestic refurbishments in Lewes. Both projects require a careful process of exploring all the options and weighing up which one will bring the best value for the homeowner - our area of expertise. Get in touch if you need an architect for your home project who is creative but will listen to your needs.

Great to see that Park Theatre, in Finsbury Park in London, is now fully open and has had great reviews for its first few shows. We collaborated with David Hughes Architects on the design, from concept to working drawings stage. The whole team led by Jez Bond have done a fantastic job taking it through the construction phase. Standing ovation!

We did a revisit to one of our projects that was completed in 2009 - a modern glazed extension in the Wallands area of Lewes. It was fascinating to hear that even though it is fully glazed on three sides, the high-performance windows and the highly insulated roof and floor mean that the owners actually rarely use the underfloor heating. It's now the most-used room in their house and they don't know how they ever lived without it...
