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.
At this project we had two distinct window types. Opening windows sit deep in the wall, adding more depth and shadow whilst fixed windows sit flush with the timber cladding giving more animation and reflection.
These fixed windows were bespoke and are generally larger, maximising key views. From inside they are frameless and appear as if a hole has been punched in the wall, bringing nature in without distraction.
