Our neighbours, artists Daniel Crawshaw and Harriet Hill came to us after having a difficult time with their original architect, who had achieved a planning permission but was struggling to get the project on site. We agreed to take the project on and worked closely with them to realise their design on a very low budget (part self build). The result has transformed their house.





The existing poorly constructed rear extension was demolished, as was the entire two-storey rear wall. A new single storey timber clad extension was constructed that linked to the existing kitchen area and the garden.

Daniel and Harriet were keen to blur the boundary between inside and out using bi-fold doors and by continuing the floor and ceiling materials.
