GRANTED PLANNING

Location:

HACKNEY, LONDON

 

The scheme is a mixed used development comprising of 50% commercial floor space and 50% residential containing 22 flats.

 

The site is situated to the rear of a grade 2 star listed property which once housed the Elizabeth Fry Refuge for women prisoners. The scheme responds to the constraints of the site which is heavily developed on all sides. The use of angled planes creates a dynamic movement and interest in form whilst practically allows the scheme to avoid impacting on neighbouring rights of light.

HAM, KENT

 

This is a scheme for 3 replacement dwellings on the former site of Hay Farm Cottages at Ham, near Deal. The design approach was to replicate the form of the original cottages which were 1 storey with some accommodation within the roof. In order to gain the additional space needed for a modern home the 3 units have been raised up onto a flint plinth which allows the entrance and garage to be accommodated below the main form of the house. This also allows the living accommodation which is at first floor to have direct access out onto the rear gardens which are set at a higher level due to the steeply sloping nature of the site. The new flint wall also replicates an historical flint retaining wall on the site.

GRANTED PLANNING – 2016

Location:

PRESTON, KENT

 

A scheme for 2 contemporary dwellings which are barn-like in form to reflect their rural setting. The external elevations have been designed to have deep sculptural forms around the main entrances to create interest. Internally the use of double height voids with galleries and vaulted ceiling continue this expression of strong forms and create interesting visual links between spaces. The master bedroom suite is located away from the rest of the house within its own sleeping pod.
