The scheme for 8 new luxury dwellings on the outskirts of Hexham has started and will deliver new and exciting, well designed homes on this private estate. We are working closely with the developer and contractor and can’t wait to see the finished article later in 2019!
Work has started on the Stavros project, a stone’s throw from our new office on Aydon Road. The project preserves some the existing fabric of the existing dwelling whilst some serious extensions, alterations and modifications have been made across the site. The scheme will include a traditional palette of materials but take on a more contemporary form.
We have eventually moved into our new home in the heart of Corbridge. The scheme which we helped design is a conversion of a former business in an old garage unit. With ground floor storage and a small office space, it is the main space we occupy at first floor with its large roof lights and plywood lined walls. Leader funding was used to assist in the construction of the project.
33 were appointed by the client, to design a bespoke series of additions to their existing restaurant. All three elements situated to the rear of the property are inspired by the heritage and context of the Tanner’s Yard. The scheme also incorporates a full interior design overhaul over all levels and doubles the number covers, whilst making the restaurant more diverse and flexible in its operation and customer experiences.
Ollie and friend Tom were back out on the rally stages after a long stint on the side-lines while the car underwent a major facelift and upgrades to the engine, gearbox and suspension….and what a difference it made. After a faulty alternator lost a few minutes on stage 1, the pair set times which would have seen them finishing second in class and knocking on the door of the top 30, pretty impressive from a starting at 73 after two seasons not competing. Plans for 2019 are being drawn up with some high-profile events on the horizon.
Having grown in headcount and the range of projects we are working on the end of our full second year has been a success. We will be celebrating our birthday with a small social event alongside some of our client and developer friends. Here’s to further success in the next year.
We are delighted to finally submit planning for the scheme at Doxford Hall and its walled gardens. Working alongside the client, Hedley Planning, BDN and Sarah Dyer we have developed a fantastic scheme for new accommodation and a wedding / conference venue. The scheme comprises modern design alongside heritage assets and listed properties and the result is fantastic. We hope to get on site in 2019.
The show home at Barley Croft has now been completed and open to buyers. We have enjoyed working on the internal elements alongside the consultants and fit out specialists. The scheme and furnishings offer a fresh take on the property market and in particular give purchasing a great insight into the rest of the development.
Ancient Britain, one of the most exciting up and coming tourism companies in the North East, asked us to obtain planning for their new outdoor education and visitor centre located on Hadrian’s Wall. The change of use from agricultural field to tourism paves the way for the next series of designs and permissions to progress and will be a project to look out for in the future.
Courtesy of Porcelanosa we were invited to join them for their annual trip to the facilities in their homeland near Villareal. Seeing the several factories which all house the luxury products produce under the main group was quite impressive to witness. Needless to say, the hospitality was also second to none. Thoroughly enjoyable and educational trip.
Work has started on site for 14 homes on the site located on the western edge of Bedlington. Gatsby Homes have appointed 33 to undertake all architectural aspects of the project and we look forward to seeing it progress to completion.
Located off St Helen’s Lane, the project moved quickly from planning to construction and the result is fantastic! The new and improved 4 bed family home now boasts a light filled kitchen and dining space, new entrance and stair and a reconfiguration internally. We also added some extra touches to the landscaping externally. Job well done.
Working with a new contractor on a bespoke design and awkward site can always be tricky, but this project has turned out to be a real success. The space provides a huge amount of light filled kitchen dinging living for the client and the quality of work has been executed to a high standard and delivers all the design details we intended with the happy client.
We have been appointed to obtain planning and undertake the major overhaul of a 4 bedroom detached dwelling in Corbridge. We were appointed on the back of an overpriced proposal by the previous designer, and the client instructed 33 to design a solution that met their budget, which will also include a full a complete interior design scheme for the property.
Work has finally completed on the Castle Dene care home extension. The scheme provides SSL Healthcare with a new purpose made facility which connects the 29-bed care home with the assisted living unit comprising 7 bedrooms. The creation of the link also accommodates a 30-person living room and social area with doors connecting it to a large safe and secure outside courtyard.
We have again been appointed by a client from a previous project to redesign a former Wesleyan chapel in Northumberland. The Grade II listed building needs extensive internal work with new windows. The unique building will become a very high quality space. Whilst the project is likely to be demanding and onerous with heritage and planning, the result could be spectacular – definitely one to watch!
We have obtained planning for a part two storey extension to a large dwelling in the Gosforth Conservation area. The scheme comprises significant structural alterations at ground floor to open and maximise the space. At first flor the master bedroom becomes transformed into a generous suite with large dressing and bathroom areas to meet the clients brief. We are moving towards the construction phase with detailed drawings.
At the end of our first year we have enjoyed a good mix
of projects and learnt a lot along the way. We have exceeded our own expectations and having gained some more recent appointments now started making permanent positions within the company and also anticipate a further increase in staff numbers in the near future. Thank you to all those who have helped us through our first year.
33 were appointed by the client, to design a bespoke series of additions to their existing dwelling. All three elements situated to the rear of the property are inspired by the coastal setting and include a single storey extension for the main house, an attic and dormer configuration to match the design below and also the creation of a garden office which mirrors the ground floor extension.
We have started on site at Radmore Cottage in Staffordshire! The project is a small, bespoke two storey extension to an existing building in the rolling countryside near Stafford. Providing a new living area at ground floor with a part double height space, the design also adds additional bedroom accommodation above. The project is being undertaken by Randle Building Solutions and due for completion in October 2016.

Courtesy of Fakro Windows and Rooflights we were invited to join them for their 25th Anniversary Dinner in Muszyna, along with visiting other delights of southern Poland. The Salt Mines in Bochina were particularly impressive and the countryside we travelled through beautifully covered in snow. Wintersports and Skiing were great fun before heading back for a few nights in Krakow, where visited the Rynek Główny and Wawel Castle, both of which were truly stunning.
Planning has been submitted for an Eco House in the Northumberland countryside for our client. The design derives from its rural, semi agricultural setting and
seeks to use stone for the gables, sun room and garage. The zinc ‘wrap’ is a contemporary material which replaces the timber cladding seen on nearby farm buildings. The construction and energy performance seeks to achieve PassiveHus standards.
33 Architecture have been appointed to work on
projects for the delivery of over 250 homes over 5 projects for a local housebuilder. The first scheme in Northumberland consists of approximately 25 houses and the outline planning has already been obtained. The next phases of the project are currently underway.
Every now and then we need a break!
What better way to spend a long weekend than taking in some of the sights and fine architecture of the capital.
Design work has commenced for a private dwelling situated in the Tyne Valley. The building will take reference from nearby farm buildings within the conservation area and provide a contemporary style of ‘barn’. The construction and energy performance will be of high standard and is to be confirmed whether this will try to become a PassiveHus standard home for the family.
IDP Group based in Glasgow invited us to work with them on an office design competition. The project was to deliver approximately 7500 sqft of office space for a longstanding client just outside of the city centre. The design took inspiration from the industrial and commercial surroundings of the site, seeking to deliver this in a well detailed and considered style over two and three storeys.
We have been appointed as lead consultant on a nationwide project for the delivery of rural lodges. The client seeks to provide lodges in numerous locations and our role is
re-designs where required for site specific designs, planning process and site monitoring. Currently we have four locations from the Lake District to Loch Lomond delivering 30 lodges with over a dozen lodges types being used. Each scheme is of a rural nature and sensitive to its environment.
33 Architecture have been appointed to design a bespoke one off dwelling on an unusual triangular shaped site in the heart of Hexham. The site has many constraints and will form the ‘bookend’ to the existing terrace that lies adjacent to the site. With numerous trees on the site, the brief is to provide something that is sympathetic to its wider built up context but retain the trees to create something private with a ‘woodland’ sense of space.
