£1.2 million major renovation and extension to a property with stunning sea views. Tucked in its own valley, the house was revitalised with an oak frame extension and cantilevered zinc roof whilst also embracing the views with carefully placed frameless glazing. Immaculate attention to detail and little personal touches left a very happy client.  Work was undertaken whilst at Robert Seymour Associates.


SPRING house,

A wonderful courtyard house tucked at the very end of the client's rear garden, this was a sensitive build from the outset. A clever design made the most of a compact site and created an unusual building form that put the living space and courtyard at the centre of the home. The use of naturally ageing Western Red Cedar, off-white render and zinc roofing give a simple and balanced palate of materials which sit perfectly within the new landscaped gardens. Project completed at GJR Architects.



A locally sympathetic 100 house development  on the outskirts of Cullompton required skilful negotiation with the Local Planning Authority to achieve consent.  Phase 1 & 2 now complete. Work undertaken at GJR Architects.
