As part of its shortlisting for a @riba regional award, our Woodview project has been featured in the RIBA Journal. This project is all about the details, from the bespoke windows to the incredibly precise cladding as seen here. Link in our bio for the full article.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This is a reconfiguration of a house split across many levels that we hope to simplify without losing some of the interest split levels provide. An early collage of the same was shared a few months ago.
This view looks back towards the main body of the house, with a view through to the kitchen on the left, with the main access to the space via stairs on the right.
Stairs up to the bedroom are created behind a brick wall that acts as a backdrop to the space, framing the dining table and gives cues to the arrangement of the rest of the room....
Exciting to see the extensions tying together as the team from CD Hood make great progress on site despite the current working conditions. A short break for the bank holiday weekend and then it’s full steam ahead next week making it weathertight.

We’re very happy to share that we have again been shortlisted for @riba @ribaeast award for our Woodview project. This is in no small part due to our fantastic clients and excellent team, including @carstructures and #gippingconstruction
Initial sketch for a house refurbishment in Cambridge. The existing house is split across too many levels (7!) which we hope to simplify whilst retaining the interest that split level, open spaces provide....
Morning light coming down through an oak lined window seat.
We’re very close to completion in Cambridge where @rmconstructioncambridge are putting the final touches to the project.
We’re really looking forward to seeing how the space works - especially in the summer months when the open corner sliding doors disappear into their pockets and boundary between inside and outside is removed....
Another view of our ‘Garage’ project staircase. These birch-ply stairs pull out when needed but otherwise remains hidden, leaving more living space downstairs.
This is part of a larger piece of furniture that incorporates a kitchenette and bathroom and a sleeping mezzanine on top - where this photo is taken from. A quick video of it in action is 3 posts back!...
At our ‘Garage’ project, the only intervention in the living space was a large, birch-ply piece of furniture.
This contained a kitchenette, bathroom and a pull-out staircase to access the sleeping mezzanine above.
We were really happy to win “Best New Small Building of 2017” at the Cambridge Design and Construction Awards with this project and it was a testament to all the hard work the client put in as a self-builder, and excellent structural design by @carstructures.
We’re really happy to report that our Pavilion Extension, designed with @carstructures and built by @rmconstructioncambridge, has been shortlisted for a Cambridge Design and Construction Award in the “Best conservation, alteration or extension of an existing building under £2m construction costs” category.
