We have recently been working on the design proposal for the remodel and extension of an existing dwelling in Palo Alto, California. 

In this project for a developer the square footage has been substantially increased while also creating a coherent and harmonious piece of architecture. 

The existing house has been comprehensively enhanced and extended to take advantage of its spectacular site to provide a striking contemporary family home. A double height extension will be added onto the house to form a central ‘great room’ with formal living, dining and library spaces, while a brand new basement level is equipped with spa, gym and cinema spaces. The property will also include a newly designed garage complex, annex building and pool house which is strategically designed to complement the existing house and sloping landscape.

Totteridge is a striking new-build contemporary house in a London conservation area. This substantial property is designed as a long-term family home, replacing an existing dated bungalow that the clients had lived in for years. 

The design is unequivocally contemporary, and contrasts to the surrounding traditional neighbouring properties – yet references the materials of the local area. Built predominantly of brick and timber, these materials are reimagined in a unique way – where brickwork is suspended above a lightweight timber and glass ground floor. This playful juxtaposition of the construction creates a distinctive and high-quality aesthetic that is used both inside and out.

Rainy day at our almost complete new build house in Totteridge, with very happy clients, it is very existing to see the final touches going in. The landscape has been installed and is beginning to set within its surrounding.  Landscaping is a vital aspect to any project, we believe that any landscape design should be balanced and unified to complement the look and feel of a building.

Our New Build single storey dwelling and artist studio in Totteridge is progressing nicely through detailed design. We are currently looking at the internal design and specifications for project. During this stage we use 3D renders to make the process of designing easier. By creating life-like images for our clients, we give them an idea of what we hope to achieve with the design at a glance. This enables us to close the gap between what we are thinking and what the client sees in their mind.

We have recently completed the extensive refurbishment and complete strip-out of a Knightsbridge apartment. The existing apartment layout was cleverly reconfigured to make the most of the given areas while considering the clients’ needs and requirements. This refurbishment included the renewal of most of the mechanical and electrical services taking into consideration the constraints of working within an existing building.  With exceptional views of Hyde Park as well as the rest of London, the apartment has three bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and an open plan living, dining and kitchen space. 

M A T E R I A L I T Y  

Through attention to detail, proportion and scale, we designed a layout which complements and respects the character of the existing building. The palette of materials and detailing creates a contemporary aesthetic. Finally, to provide functionality as well as clearness within each of the spaces we included floor to ceiling cabinets throughout the apartment, hidden behind finely crafted panelling.

F U R N I T U R E

We are currently co-ordinating the delivery and installation of the selected furniture for the apartment. We have chosen the furniture not only to complement the aesthetics achieved in the architecture, but to also reflect the clients’ taste.

We are progressing with Detailed Design of an exciting New Build single storey dwelling and artist studio in Totteridge. Designed to maximise extensive views of the landscape and solar gains on the site, the house will have lesser demand for space heating during the winter months. An overhanging roof will reduce solar gain and keep the spaces cool during the summer months. We’ll be posting updates as the job progresses to site.

The Material Palette of our Hampstead Project (Refurbishment, Basement and extension) sought to incorporate contrasting materials both in terms of colour and texture. A palette of dark honed stones, beautifully lustrous silks, aged bronze metalwork and dark stained timber with natural warmth coming through were compiled to create a luxurious, striking architectural interior.

We spent last week shooting a recently completed modern extension to an old farmhouse in Kent. Gregory’s portrait (shot at the project), will feature in the Modern Man section of the next Issue of Angelino I Modern Luxury Magazine in LA.
Professional photos of the whole project to follow.  In the meantime , here are some photos of the shoot taken by our team to show how we created a modern piece of architecture which successfully creates an open plan kitchen and living space linking the grade II listed home and existing barn while maximising views of the beautiful 70acre grounds beyond.
Professional interior shots will also be released. The approach aimed to create a ‘modern farmhouse’ look to suit the clients brief and lifestyle.

Creating an Architectural Journey that begins the moment you enter the property is a key element of the success of our award winning homes.

A meandering driveway leads to this new house . Announced by an external reflecting pool and flanked by monolithic garden walls, it leads to a central courtyard completely encircled by walling and out-buildings. This parti, inspired by the traditional country house with rear courtyard and stabling, ensures that the picturesque open site, remains unobstructed. Entrance to the house is via a covered walkway which crosses the reflecting pool and into a breath-taking double height entrance space. The internal layout of the house provides four wings of accommodation oriented to provide the best daylight, views and interaction with the surroundings.
Inspired by traditional country houses with adjoining stable yards, the layout of this home in Berkshire evolved from a simple diagram incorporating a protected centralised courtyard flanked by glazed single-aspect rooms affording magnificent countryside views.  The extensive contemporary flint-work used within the courtyard reinterprets the flint-work within the surrounding village, and in particular the medieval church that is within view of the property.  Entry to the house itself is made by crossing an enclosed reflecting pool leading into a double height space, where the architectural journey continues.
