Our main priority is helping clients make great architecture that serves their needs and responds in a vital way to its context and cultural surroundings. In order to do this and to further the studios own knowledge base we invest in a wide programme of research which enables us to be inventive and to find new and sometimes unexpected solutions to the problems that we are posed.
We work in collaboration with like-minded consultants in order to further our thinking and skill level and since our inception, we have always looked to develope concepts grounded by good research that have a light touch on the planet, are low in carbon and energy-use. We look to our research to help us and our clients mitigate the impact of climate change.
10 Sheep House Green
10 Sheephouse Green is a two-storey side extension to a family home based in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) in the Surrey Hills. The design features a new living room on the ground floor and a new bedroom and study on the first floor. The design of the new extension is respectful of the existing property by using thoughtful materiality and the massing is recessed at the front and rear, enhancing the overall respect for the host property.
Careful consideration has been given to detailing, particularly using a chamfered corner on the south-east facade, which when seen from the interior guides the viewer’s eye to the outside garden and celebrates the surrounding mature trees. The proposal aims to deliver a contextual approach that improves the architecture of both the existing dwelling and the prominent rear elevation in which it sits.
Construction is currently underway, with completion anticipated in QTR 4 2022.
