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.
Work has now been completed on the Grade II Listed building in Hexham town centre. The project comprised of the refurbishment and extension to the former doctor’s surgery and provides 6 luxury two-bedroom apartments over three floors as well the creation of a three storey annexe townhouse.
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.
