We have extensive experience of working on listed and historic buildings and have a detailed understanding of the special approach that is required when working on these properties in order to conserve their special historic character. We understand the need to use appropriate and sensitive methods and materials, and the damage that can be caused by an uninformed approach. We strongly believe in carrying out detailed research to fully understand the history and significance of a property before preparing detailed proposals.
Detached Grade II listed house in the Surrey Hills
This Grade II listed building was originally constructed to form an Orangery for a nearby large country house. The property was two storeys with a flat roof behind a parapet wall. We designed a scheme to add a mansard roof to create an additional two bedrooms, family shower room and feature landing area. The scheme enhanced and improved the appearance of the property whilst also providing additional accommodation.
Semi detached cottage in the South Downs National Park
This property comprises a Grade II listed historic cottage which had previously been altered and adapted in a number of different phases, not all of it in an appropriate manner. Our scheme comprised the removal of unslightly and inappropriate previous additions, and the construction of a two storey side extension to improve and enhance the residential accommodation.
Traditional barn in the South Downs National Park
This building comprises a Grade II listed traditional timber framed barn, originally constructed for agricultural use. The building was in need of significant repair and investment. We designed a scheme for sensitive adaptive re-use to form commercial use and obtained planning and Listed Building consent for the scheme.
