Seeing is believing - a selection from our growing portfolio of completed projects.
This large Georgian building dates back to the 1820s and has taken substantial renovation to revive it to an updated splendour. Having been used for a variety of purposes over the years the floor plan and staircases required reworking and a two storey 'bandstand' extension has been added to create a terrace to the kitchen and an external seating area below.
The house benefits from plenty of natural light thanks to the large windows in each room making the most of the views. The property is teeming with elegant cornicing and coving, marble fireplaces and arched corridors. The house has been sympathetically and carefully renovated to bring life back to the traditional features whilst the contemporary kitchen and bathrooms bring the conveniences of modern living to the property.
Within the grounds lies a significant outbuilding, outdoor swimming pool and 'Gin Terrace' which were also part of the project.

Although the scope for the exterior design of this new house was restricted by the local Planning Authority, the Architect and client have created a strikingly contemporary, fun and very spacious light-filled interior. The detailing is precise with shadow gaps around the doors, and a striking bespoke ballustrade to the stairway. There is a lift to the first floor and a number of electrically operated concealed pocket screens, including two low ones into the kitchen for the dog. The plant room is in a basement along with a media room featuring an LED 'night sky' coffered ceiling.

This new-build Surrey farmhouse has a largely open plan interior facilitated by an additional 'extension' of contrasting architectural style to the more traditional stone house. The contemporary brick-faced kitchen wing has a striking timber roof with vaulted ceiling, and features arched Crittal windows. In the grounds, a separate black timber studio barn and poolhouse stands adjacent to the swimming pool.

We recently completed the build of this substantial, 6-bedroomed, new lakeside manor house. The architects were commissioned to design a building of architectural merit that would be appropriate to its setting – a glorious 5-acre site with a lake on the edge of Shamley Green, a much sought after Surrey village. Built from natural stone with large oak-framed window bays and a Welsh slate roof, the 'butterfly' design takes full advantage of the breathtaking views over the lake and gardens. The interior is fitted out to a superb high specification by our expert artisans with very close attention paid to every detail. It has smart home systems and a dedicated fibre broadband connection.

This is a total refurbishment of a Grade 2 listed property which, along with all its outbuildings, had been neglected for decades. The earliest part of the house is medieval with some wattle and daub and later lath and plaster – behind some plasterboard we discovered medieval wallpaintings which have been preserved. Later additions are Jacobean and Georgian, and their original oak panelling and decorative plaster ceilings have been carefully restored. All three chimneys had to be rebuilt, the dilapidated oak roof timbers fully restored, the roof completely retiled and the original leaded windows and Georgian sash windows carefully refurbished. New plumbing and electric systems were installed throughout and the kitchen has received a modern glazed extension. In the grounds, a swimming pool and very modern pool-house have been added.

A special neo-classical design with a very attractive entrance. The house was designed by Mitchell Evans Architects – it was a challenging build for both us and the client as the construction involved four different planning phases including partial occupation. The end result is spectacular, complimented by the interior designs by Helen Green Design Studio and the garden works by Ben Beth.

A new dwelling completed 2014. A uniquely styled house on four floors including a basement and indoor swimming pool. The many changing levels and detailing to all elevations give a very pleasing weight to this house. There are also many interconnecting levels inside and the staircase detailing is a triumph.

A new house designed by Crane & Associates. From the front a Surrey style home but with a modern touch with regard to the window design. The rear of the property is more contemporary, complimenting the living spaces which, always bathed in light, flow easily from one area to another.
