DREAM DESIGN COMMISSION UNDERWAY…

In Misc by Pete Tonks / February 19, 2015 / 0 Comments

It was my great pleasure last year to receive a design commission from one of my favourite people in the industry, an all round top man by the name of Mr Jason Orme, Editor at Homebuilding and Renovating Magazine.

Jason and I have known each other for many years and have enjoyed sharing our experiences and knowledge through our work with the magazine and fleeting 10 minute meetings at the exhibitions…

Jason came to me as we had a shared vision for this proposed contemporary makeover on a 60’s house he had bought with his family. The existing house is cool but not real cool…..

Our vision for the project is to take what is good about the current building such as the horizontal emphasis to architectural form and then blend this with more contemporary additions and fusions..

Here are some images of the current house and also the concepts we have put forwards as part of our pre-application work. The site does lie within the Conservation Area so this is the best way to proceed initially.

Loving the real 60’s/70’s flavour on this one now… but it still resonates with architecture of today and has the exactly the feel i was after..

And here is some of our inspiration…..
