Private Housing



Formally a converted barn this holiday let was renovated and extended to form a unique family home. The main thatched extension to the house included a open plan, double height living room with a mezzanine master bedroom and gallery library. A two story glazed corner screen, opening directly onto a patio, offered views into the valley to the sea beyond. All posts, beams, windows and doors were handmade in solid oak and left to weather naturally.



An historic farmhouse set in a secluded valley in West Dorset. The nine bedroomed property was completely renovated, remodelled and extended to include a vaulted wine cellar, billiards room and vine-house. The project included the restoration of a disused mill house together with landscaping works, the creation of stone walled ponds and consent for a lake. 




The house, a converted farm building, had a large garage incorporating a study, W.C, and loft room annex separated from the house by an external passageway of just 1.8m and the owner wanted to incorporate the garage rooms into the main house. The connecting extension had to allow through-access between the front and rear of the property, access to the living room and study, and incorporate a stair to the loft, that had previously been accessed by ladder. The design included a gazebo for the garden.



An extension to an old hillside cottage in a Dorset coastal village. The design extending out into the garden, with ‘wrap-around’ windows, aimed to maximise the excellent views across the valley towards the sea. Walls were constructed in local stone and the new oak windows and doors were left to weather naturally.
