New Build Maisonette Cottages, Llandaff Cardiff

The brief was to design three new build maisonette cottages to secure Building Regulation approval and produce a complete construction drawing and tender package. The aim of the development was to maximise the limited and irregular shaped site by staggering the buildings and generating natural light through large scale windows. Careful thought had to be given to the detailing and use of materials to allow the new development to be sympathetic to the surrounding dwellings which are in a conservation area. Sustainability was also a driving factor and the completed works achieved Code for Sustainable Homes Level 3.

New Build Five Bedroom Detached House, Melrose Avenue, Cardiff

The brief was to design a modern yet sympathetic five bedroom house on land formerly used as a pedestrian underpass. The awkward topography of the site and the presence of services through the site has resulted in it becoming a blighted part of the townscape on the edge of the Roath Park Conservation Area. The design, external materials and colour follow the modern interpretation of a detached house as exemplified opposite the site and also nod to the surrounding victorian properties.

Two new build four storey residential dwellings at 121 Mortimer road, London

The brief was to design two new build four storey residential dwellings in the De Beauvoir conservation area of Hackney London.

The site itself until recently was home to William Lyttle, known as the Mole Man of Hackney. For 40 years Mr Lyttle dug a series of tunnels under his property on the corner of Mortimer Road and Stamford Road. Hackney Council found a web of tunnels and caverns, some 8 m (26 ft) deep, spreading up to 20 m in every direction from his house causing £300,000 worth of damage.
