ADM, who designed and supplied the mechanical ventilation & heat recovery (MVHR) system at our listed farm conversion in Yorkshire, have written a case study explaining the system and equipment required for the project. If you don’t know much about MVHR, this feature is a great read which covers the basics as well as the specific constraints of this particular building – check it out here:

We love this greenhouse by Cultivar, which completes the courtyard kitchen garden at our listed farm conversion in Yorkshire. The greenhouse abuts an original stone & brick wall, which was restored as part of the conversion works. Check out Cultivar’s website to see more!

TACTILE HOUSE, LONDON

Tactile House has won “Best Of Design” on Houzz®! Our project portfolio was chosen by the more than 40 million monthly unique users that comprise the Houzz community, from portfolios of more than 2.1 million active home building, renovating and design industry professionals.
The Best Of Houzz is awarded annually in three categories: Design, Customer Service and Photography. Design award winners’ work was the most popular among the more than 40 million monthly users on Houzz.
We’re delighted that three of our projects will feature in the Don’t Move, Improve! 2019 showcase of London’s best home improvements, in both the exhibition and magazine. Whilst it’s a shame we didn’t win, it’s an honour to be featured alongside such an impressive range of high quality projects.
Keep an eye out for the #dontmoveimprove exhibition and magazine, launching 22nd Jan 2019! We can’t wait to see them.

On 17.10.18, David Knight of Cake Industries will be speaking about ‘the transformative process of integrating design, structural engineering and fabrication via digital workflows’ as part of the technical lecture series at The Institute of Structural Engineers. David is a chartered structural engineer who has worked on some amazing projects around the world, and also a few closer to home which you might recognise from our own portfolio! The lecture will use current examples of designs under construction, and we’ll be keeping an eye out for a guest appearance from a certain staircase…
The event is free to attend, or you can watch the live stream free online – it promises to be an interesting evening. For more info and to book a place, head over to the Institute of Structural Engineers website here.
With thanks to Nash Partnership for the fab photo.
