01/

ROCKVALE,
DARTMOUTH

£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.

02/

SPRING house,
NEWTON POPPLEFORD

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.

BECKINGHAM ROAD,
GUILDFORD

A replacement rear extension, this addition has transformed the narrow galley kitchen and opened up the house to the garden.  Aluminium sliding patio doors can be fully opened in the summer making a truly indoor-outdoor space, whilst the super insulated walls maintain an all year round comfortable temperature. 

One happy client!

04/

NEW DWELLING,
TOTNES

Outline planning approval achieved for a small 2 bedroom end of terrace house on a tight plot just above Totnes town centre.  The quality of the planning submission resulted in a smooth and quick planning permission from South Hams District Council.

05/

THE WYNDHAMS,
TORBAY

Submitted for planning, a complete remodel of a large Victorian house in Torbay to maximise sea views from the upper floors and reconfigure the ground floor to embrace modern living habits.  The new additions will utilise materials such as wood, render and concrete to sympathetically sit alongside the arts and crafts style house but add a contemporary twist.

06/

RIVELS GREEN,
CULLOMPTON

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.
