An assortment of homes built for and by individual clients for their own use:

Single storey lifetime home
An adaptable lifetime home designed to be wheelchair accessible should the need occur.  Well designed houses should be for everyone, not just the wealthy!     Design: Nick
Chalet bungalow front elevation
A new chalet-style bungalow, backing onto cliff tops, that replaces a smaller timber built bungalow.  A generous and spacious internal layout with a pair of large bedrooms on the upper floor, and a third bedroom on the ground floor.
Bat-wing house
Replacement house for a private client.  The client had not decided whether to enlarge or rebuild the existing bungalow, so we designed a new, or enlarged house that would work in either case.  There are five bedrooms, four to the front with two to each storey, and the master bedroom to the rear.  There is a generous and comfortable living room alongside an open plan kitchen to the ground floor rear, opening onto the private garden.

 

Detached house in a 'barn' style.    Design: Peter Jackson
Detached house in the style of a flint faced barn.    Design:  Peter
Fan shaped house with curved garden facade.   Design: Nick Baldry
A fan shaped house on a site the planners thought could not be developed.  This is certainly a variant for those who don't like square boxes!   Design: Nick
Detached dwelling taking inspiration from Kent farmhouses.   Design:  Peter Jackson
Farmhouse style detached house taking inspiration from the rural vernacular.   Design:  Peter
Contemporary timber faced replacement house
A contemporary timber faced house designed to be built entirely of timber. The plan is of two rectangles set at 15° to each other with a central tall circulation space separating them.  A bridge links the first floors in the rectangular elements with detailing strongly influenced by the woodland neighbouring the site.  Design:  Nick
Entrance hall with gallery landing above

The entrance hall of a contemporary house where there are long views from the front door through to the garden. The hall lacks any windows of its own, but is lit instead from above, and given a greater sense of space by the gallery landing above, and the consequent central double-height core.

 

Detached house on corner plot

A detached house on a corner plot in a fashionable part of Whitstable taking cues from the prevailing architecture of the area.   Design:  Nick

 

Gallery landing 2

Gallery landing and stairs for a new-build 3 storey family home.   Design:  Nick
House alterations and refurbishment
This house which stands on the cliff-top in Birchington had become tired, with an internal layout that did not suit modern ideas of living.  The interior was completely re-imagined with living spaces moved to the first floor and a new entrance and stair that just invites you up to that level.  The roof-space was opened up for a master bedroom and en-suite, with a new dormer creating space for the latter.  A single storey extension was added to the side, with new windows, balcony and smooth render identifying the changes to the outside world.
