Two projects shortlisted for awards
Daily Telegraph/Homebuilding & Renovating Awards recognition
Two of our recent projects have been shortlisted for the annual Daily Telegraph/Homebuilding & Renovating Awards. Broxholm Road (designed by Selencky///Parsons) is in the running in the 'Best Contemporary Renovation' category, while Church Hill Barn (by David Nossiter Architects) is in the running for the 'Best Conversion' award.
Project: Complete renovation of three-bed semi-detached house in South London.
Award: Shortlisted for Best Contemporary Renovation or Extension
It is no surprise to us that this amazing contemporary renovation has been recognised by the judges in this category. A firm favourite of ours, this South London three-bed house has been featured as a case study on our website and on social media for the last few months.
The amazing design saw the house increase from an 85sqm, 3 bedroom property into a 131sqm four-bed home. The additional space was created with a loft conversion that features a large picture window with amazing views over Central London, whilst the ground floor split-level extension features a three-panel set of theEDGE sliding doors.
The judges described the finished projects as "An intelligent solution to maximise living space an urban area. The conversion is quirky and simple, yet the finishing touches give it not only an air of architectural impact but also work as a family home."
Project: Ambitious conversion of timber and brick barn into family home
Architects: David Nossiter Architects
Award: Shortlisted for Best Conversion
Converting this traditional barn in Suffolk into a light-filled home was the task that faced David Nossiter Architects, and they achieved it spectacularly.
The cathedral sized proportions of the barn means that utilising large areas of glazing was key to creating contemporary internal spaces. This was achieved by incorporating large fixed frame windows and IDSystems Grand Slider II sliding doors into the design, ensuring even the heart of the finished home is filled with natural light.
The judges praised the conversion, saying "To tackle and existing building like this you have to take a forensic approach to create a piece of architecture within the existing structure. This is also a prime example of someone knowing when to stop adding layers."
