New Private House Hove

Based on a Palladian nine square plan, this contemporary, new family home represents a modern reworking of a classic villa. With its central atrium staircase and split level plan, the building utilises the topography of the site to maximise views and culminates in a swimming pool with a serpentine waveform roof that blends seamlessly with the garden.

Brighton Square

The regeneration of Brighton Square will see the wholesale redesign of the square and facades of the 1960's development. The scheme entails the demolition of the eastern side of the square that fronts onto Brighton Place, and the construction of a new boutique hotel that will heal the scar in the urban fabric created by the existing entrance of the underground car park. With contemporary facades, additional rooftop accommodation and improved thermal performance, the scheme introduces a 'green oasis' in the heart of The Lanes and improved pedestrian links with the surrounding context.
The redevelopment brings new vibrancy to a part of the Old Town that has lost some of its original appeal and will lead to a resurgence of the area as a tourist destination.

Hannington Lane Brighton

Located on the edge of the historic Old Town area of Brighton, the development is carved out of an old service yard creating a new shopping lane with improved links to the surrounding area.
With a floor plan borne out of extensive research into the historic street pattern of the area, the scheme design reflects the organic growth of The Lanes with a variety of traditional and contemporary buildings. This pedestrian friendly development knits into the urban grain of The Lanes and provides new retail units with courtyard based residential accommodation above.

New Residential Development London

With its dynamic roofline and cantilevered timber facade this development is a stunning addition to the townscape.
Set on a tight urban site, this terrace of 6 no. 3 bedroom contemporary townhouses with its staggered floor plan and floating roof, is a dramatic piece of architecture that is both contextual and distinctly contemporary.
