Conversion of a double garage into a bedroom with dressing room and en-suite. The client wanted to retain privacy so high level windows were fitted to the front and skylights to the roof allowing the room to be filled with natural light.
This is a traditional stable building, part of Tenterfield House, that I developed into a residential home in 2000. Sixteen years later the original purchaser asked me to design an extension to form a new entrance and studio room. Further to this brief the existing conservatory was to be converted into year round living space. The design uses traditional materials of natural slate and sand stone to work in harmony within the curtilage of the listed building. The roof of the conservatory was removed and a slate roof with glazed gable was formed to create a dramatic living space. The house now has an obvious entrance with a covered walkway leading to the main door. The studio opens up onto the walkway which creates a versatile external space.
Attic conversion to a traditional farm cottage forming a spacious living room created by the addition of a large dormer. The ground floor was also renovated allowing for the addition of an open plan kitchen.
We produced drawings and information for many garage conversions. The project formed a dining space off the kitchen.

Conversion of 3 run down farm cottages into bespoke holiday accommodation. The two end cottages each contain two bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms and the middle cottage, which was found to have an open, trussed and purloined roof construction, became the kitchen, dining and living area. All apartments have easterly views over open countryside towards the Cheviot Hills
