Bungalow at Penwithick

This bungalow style dwelling has been designed for a vacant site in Penwithick, north of St Austell. The site itself is triangular in shape which made the laying out of the site challenging. Our proposal is for a two bedroom bungalow style dwelling, with one of the bedrooms in the form of a room in the roof. This arrangement allows for the size of the dwelling’s footprint to be more appropriate to that of the site, and allows for ample amounts of amenity space.

Another key aspect of the site was its prominent location therefore the form of the building reduces with the narrowing of the site this makes it less prominent when viewed from the road. The resultant proposal is one which is subservient to the adjacent properties; its fenestrations help form verticality along the street scene, while its finishes blend with the surrounding properties.

Vicarage Road

This project had two distinct parts - firstly to convert the loft of an existing bungalow with a pyramid roof, and secondly to demolish the existing garage and build a small annexe in its place.

Underground Home

A barn conversion and extension with a difference. The barn is sandwiched between a road and the edge of the council's development boundary, meaning a traditional extension would be unacceptable.

Replacement Dwelling

The client wished to create a modern, light filled, energy efficient and low maintenance property whilst providing an adequate and adaptable living space. The existing bungalow was in a poor state of repair. It was poorly insulated and expensive to heat with no architectural merit.
