This earth sheltered house is currently under construction on a family farm within a greenfield site. The proposal will benefit from sustainable construction methods whilst utilising the earth pushed against the external walls for thermal mass.
22nd December 2020 – We have recently submitted a number of projects for planning before the Christmas break. This particular scheme aims to discreetly site a new house on a steeply sloping site within what is not only a conservation area but also a World Heritage Site. Fingers crossed on this one!

10th October 2020 – The timber frame has been erected and the panoramic views out are already looking fantastic from the first floor living space on our project in Salisbury.
This project sets a contemporary two storey house into a sloping overgrown site. A sunken, stepped terrace brings light deep into this partially buried house whilst also providing a dual aspect living space to the ground floor. To the front the rooms are angled to take in the far reaching countryside views. To the rear […]
This project looks to creates a new passive standard home to replace a former fire damaged bungalow on sloping site in the small village of South Croxton.

An example of a typical 1970’s link detached house where the clients are looking to bring the existing dwelling in line with modern ways of family living. The scheme involves a radical make over to produce a contemporary home with clean lines whilst also upgrading the existing fabric and bringing a breath of fresh air […]
A contemporary approach to match the local vernacular of rural Wiltshire. The client required a Bespoke but subtle well designed home to fit the purpose of an agricultural dwelling that was both beautiful but did not upset the local aesthetic.

A new-build oak framed house designed to suite the vernacular style. We collaborated with an oak frame company to create this cosy family home constructed with SIPs.
This project sees the rejuvenation of bland house with little architectural merit. The site does however have stunning views, however, unfortunately the house struggles to make the most of them, especially in the attic. Our clients are seeking to create a fantastic piece of residential architecture which complements and sympathises with the vernacular style.
A project that looks to capitalize on the fantastic views; causing minimal impact on the surrounding environment as to not detract from the landscape. The ground floor consists of an elegant glass box, designed to almost disappear from view as it reflects the carefully crafted land in which it sits. Above this, as if floating, […]
