We were delighted to be asked to work with the new owners of this house to add a loft conversion, having previously designed the side infill and renovation of the ground floor. It was great to see the house evolve and be enjoyed by its new occupants. You can see more of the original project here.

This recently completed project in Brixton, carried out by 4-You Residential, involved a full house refurbishment as well as a modest rear & side extension and loft conversion. The house had been untouched for many years and was in need of modernisation, with a brief which included cooking & dining spaces fit for a chef to entertain their guests. The result is a bright, warm home with a strong connection to the garden.
Loxley Stables, our development of three timber framed houses in Hertfordshire, has been shortlisted for the Offsite Construction Awards 2020. The houses were constructed using off-site manufactured timber frames, and clad on site by the main contractor.
“The Offsite Construction Awards reward outstanding examples of prefabrication and factory-based methods, products and systems. Founded in 2015, the Awards celebrate the offsite industry and promote the benefits of offsite as a more modern, sustainable and streamlined method of construction. ”
Great news – Woodside Mews has also been shortlisted for the RIBA Regional Awards, in the East region. The judging process is delayed until further notice, but we look forward to seeing how both projects get on when the awards get underway again.

Set on a spacious site in Yorkshire, this cluster of derelict farm buildings has been lovingly restored to create a new family home. The original barns are linked with new interventions including frameless glass links and a ‘floating’ weathering steel clad extension. Check out the rest of the project here.
Our House in Brixton was longlisted for the Don’t Move, Improve awards this year. The exhibition opened on February 11th with the awards ceremony and will be open until April 30th, at the Building Centre in London. We had a great evening browsing the brilliant projects and seeing the winners collect their awards!
“The exhibition features 113 projects completed in the last two years in Greater London, chosen for their exceptional creativity, cost-effectiveness, environmental considerations, contextual design and livability of space. Don’t Move, Improve! – now celebrating its 10th year – showcases the diversity and character of homes being re-designed in London to encourage homeowners to take on a project of their own. Find a wealth of inspiration including the seven winning projects from this year’s competition, a library of innovative materials used in the featured homes and a showcase of how different projects achieve the same goal or overcome common issues.”

We were chuffed to have Loxley Stables shortlisted in the Small Housing Development category at the Brick Awards 2019. The Brick Awards, which are organised by the Brick Development Association, are regarded as ‘the Oscars of the brick industry’. Thanks to York Handmade, who supplied the lovely linear bricks for this project, we were invited to attend the brilliant awards evening in London.
