Finalist 2016 for Wick Lane

We were a finalist for the best luxury house of the year. This contemporary design has been lead the far reaching views of the River Stour and beyond to Christchurch Priory, the house enjoys an elevated position neighbouring Tuckton Tea Gardens and comprises circa 3500sq,ft of modern living space.
The predominantly glazed elevations will provide uninterrupted vistas of some of the most glorious land marks on the border of Christchurch and Bournemouth. The design seeks to take full advantage of such a splendid location and is strongly influenced by the iconic American architect Frank Lloyd Wright.


Glen Road, Canford Cliffs

The Premier Guarantee Excellence Awards has been designed to recognise the UK's best developments covered by our schemes. Winning one of our awards is a great opportunity to add value to your properties when selling to prospective purchasers plus you'll be amongst a select group of prestigious house builders and developers who have taken home an Excellence Award. This stunning sites sits at the head of the Luscombe Valley adjacent the historic world famous Compton Acres Gardens in exclusive Canford Cliffs. The magnificent sylvan setting was the inspiration for a striking contemporary design solution with large areas of glazing to flood light into the building whilst also creating a direct connection between the interior and exterior landscape.


Tollgate Road

The site is currently occupied by a disused car showroom and lies to the east of the City of Salisbury on elevated land near St Martins Church. Dating from 11th Century and the most ancient church in the area. The immediate area is a mix of industrial and residential and the LPA encouraged a wholly residential development having seen our initial proposal for a mixed use development. Partnering with a Housing Association we last month received approval for 24no flats in a contemporary style, which would take full advantage of the distant views to the water meadows to the west. Garaging is located in a discrete basement storey and the L shaped design allows a good buffer between the proposal and the commercial premises that will remain to the north south and east.

All Saints Church


Having been responsible as Diocesan Architect for the recovering of the roof of this fine listed building we were commissioned to design the internal reordering of the Church and new extensions to address the requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act.

After considerable opposition from the local Conservation Officers we were finally successful in obtaining planning and Listed Building Consents with invaluable support and encouragement of the Salisbury Archdeacon and Diocesan Advisory Committee members.

Interestingly the planners have since submitted the scheme for a Poole Pride of Place award, which we won!
