Hill House

Hill House, Brigsteer: A barn conversion and alterations to a 16th Century cottage. The brief was to convert the attached barn into habitable accommodation, with a Lounge on the ground floor and En-suite Bedroom above. The concept was to re-orientate the property, in order to take full advantage of its prominent position on a rocky outcrop overlooking the Lyth Valley, with a glazed gable-end and new balcony. The project was Commended by CIAT in the 2016 Alan King Award.

Raw Cottage
Monkswell Ave, Bolton-le-Sands: An extension and renovation of a 1960's bungalow, to create a modern eco-home. The existing property had been neglected for some time, and was damp and cold. The brief was to create a sustainable home, fit for the future. Along with a more contemporary aesthetic, the house was designed to significantly exceed current standards of insulation. The alterations also included solar panels, underfloor heating, and an insulating render, to reduce the dependancy on fossil fuels.
Ambleside 1
Overbeck Cottage, Ambleside: An extension and renovation of a derelict Lakeland cottage. The brief was to extend and refurbish the existing property in order to provide accommodation suitable for the 21st Century. The concept was to invert the existing layout, in order to take advantage of the spectacular views. The design of the extension respects the traditional style of the cottage, with stone walls and slate roof, whilst the new windows provide a more contemporary feel. The project was awarded the Leslie Johnson Trophy by Ambleside Civic Trust.
Tower Wood
Tower Wood Cootage, Windermere: Conversion of a Grade II Listed Barn, adjacent to Lake Windermere in the Lake District National Park. Traditional features were retained and reinstated where possible and environmentally friendly materials chosen to reflect the historic and sensitive nature of the setting, whilst glass was used creatively to increase the sense of light & space. An air source heat pump (ASHP), together with underfloor heating, also provides a low-carbon heating system.
