It is fantastic to be able to announce that our proposal for the Norbord OSB competition has been selected as the winning design. Our approach in creating a high density development by interlocking low rise units allowing private external space was credited at a ceremony in London by Norbord and the RIBA Journal –

Location : Gosforth, Newcastle
Sectors: Residential, Private
We worked with a client looking to fully overhaul a property creating a family home in the Gosforth area of Newcastle. The family were keen that the garden linked visually to the house with clear lines of sight from the kitchen and living spaces. Working with the existing structure rather than against, the ground floor has been opened up and connected but allows for a certain separation when different tasks are happening in separate areas. While the interior has an unashamedly modern feel, the light airy spaces and connection to the garden soften the ambience and give a homely feel.
The project also involved a single storey extension at ground level and master bedroom within the roof void with en-suite and study space within the confines of the queen post truss. A full electrical overhaul was required with underfloor heating incorporated into the entire ground floor providing energy efficient heat.
Bespoke Extension Jesmond
Location : Jesmond, Newcastle
We were approached to look at reconfiguring a domestic property to update the kitchen and provide a new utility room, toilet, dining space and garden terrace. Working closely with the family we developed an understanding of how the key spaces would be used and designed to enhance their lifestyle.
Strong visual links between the garden and kitchen are created with a large window carefully detailed to wrap onto the roof giving views to the garden and sky beyond mature trees. The large sliding screen leads onto a terrace level with the inside further enforcing the relationship between interior and exterior. Materials were carefully selected to give a contemporary edge while resonating with the existing property.
