Delighted to have received Building Warrant for this attic bedroom conversion in Barrhead. The project involves thermal upgrade of the existing attic and insertion of acoustic separation between the (new) attic bedroom and ground floor accommodation. A new bespoke timber staircase was designed to fit into a restricted hallway, whilst maintaining access to existing ground floor rooms. New Velux windows inserted in the roof provide natural light & ventilation to the bedroom and study niche.


After submission of additional information, we received this Building Warrant from East Renfrewshire Council in under 24 hours. Now that's what we call fast.....well done East Ren!

Sketch design for internal alterations to a detached house in Newton Mearns, East Renfrewshire. The clients wished to make more of their south facing aspect, with better access to the garden. Due to the dramatic change in level through the site, our approach was to replace the existing external steps with a large elevated terrace and alter the existing bay windows at the rear to create one large glazed bay, behind which the new kitchen and open plan dining area are located. The old 'chilly' porch is replaced with an insulated timber frame box containing a new en-suite shower room serving a master bedroom in the location of the old kitchen.

We have recently submitted a planning application for the conversion of a traditional stone barn & gin-gang into a 3 bedroomed dwelling near Lockerbie in Dumfries and Galloway. The site is accessed via a private track, leading to an open gravel courtyard which separates the single storey 'L' shaped barn from an existing two storey farmhouse. Free standing stone walls attach the barn to the house and form the courtyard enclosure.


Our strategy towards the design of this conversion is to respect the material presence of the original structure and adopt a light touch in creating new openings to bring light and aspect to the new rooms, thereby allowing the homogeneous character of the stone barn to remain dominant. The arrangement of the layout has been planned to coincide with the as found nature of spaces and openings of the barn structure. The proposal adopts an inherently sustainable approach in utilising a largely redundant traditional stone barn and giving it a new purpose.
