Wow wow wee wah! Well we have been busy boys!

AdelineArchitecture first, our recent scheme for 14 flats a stones through from the new Boscombe reef has been submitted. The client gave us a fairly open brief in regards to design, but they wanted the flats to be spacious – aiming at a market that is on the way up, this lovely block of flats will be perfect for first time buyers (especially surfers) or people who are looking for a summer retreat in a more financially acceptable area of Boscombe! Designed alongside the knowledge from Planning Precision, this scheme is pays tribute to our design past, but uses contemporary materials to give it a sense of today! Client pleased, we’re pleased – lets hope the council are the same! Fingers crossed.This scheme comes on the back of a wave of approvals and instructions, two recent residential extensions in Bournemouth and Wimborne were both approved – happy days!

Salisbury Front ElevationNew instructions include a block of 5 townhouses in Salisbury, our brief was simple, ‘Make them look like they have always been there’ Our cottage style design was well researched, with a mix of stock brick,render, knapped flint and slate, the scheme really works. A real bug bear of ours is poorly designed pastiche, something that is becoming all to common in today’s market – we are pleased to say that these houses are accurately worked, and shows we aren’t all about the contemporary finish! Our first architectural venture into Salisbury, lets hope its a fruitful one!
