As an architectural practice we were approached in 2013 by East Hants to be one of their selected Local Authority Building Control Partners. The Partnership means that our applications are dealt with by a dedicated Building Control Officer, providing us with a consistency of approach and reducing application time.

Below are some of our commercial clients along with some examples of our domestic projects.


A fun project converting an existing kitchen and conservatory space, no extension here just refiguring the existing space to work better. Finished in Larch cladding with a brise soleil over the terrace which extends the new room right out into the garden.   

Slipper Mill

Conversion of an existing mill in Emsworth. Opening up the floor plan provided several design challenges, but produced an incredible space. The client had a wonderful eye for colours and detail and the outcome is a stunning home with incredible views from every room. 

Tannery Studios

Working closely with the client we designed the conversion of this old Tannery on the banks of the River Wey in Surrey, into a three-storey open plan workspace with a large central atrium.

There were several significant challenges to overcome with the building, but with the help of a team of skilled engineers we managed to keep the original portal framework and integrate it into the design, helping to retain the character of the building, whilst creating a contemporary creative hub.

Redhill Road

Internal alterations to an existing property, open plan kitchen and dining room.

Southdown Road

Complete renovation of a dilapidated property, including a single storey rear extension and new garden office. Every floor, wall and ceiling in the house was refurbished and alterations to the existing bathrooms and ensuite.

Project started in March 2016 and Completion Certificate was issued by Building Control in December.

Building works undertaked by R&S Building. Overseen on site by iDraw.

Catherington Lane

A small extension that dramatically enhanced this character property. Installing folding doors opened up the garden to the house and the screened terrace makes the house feel spacious. Render finish gives the rear elevation a banded townhouse look. Simple effective design that transformed a property for a small budget.

Walburton Way

Taking the clients brief of a sun room and garden redesign, we created this dramatic contemporary extension on site with the client and contractor during construction. Setting the header at the right level and proportion gave the design the right weight. A really enjoyable collaborative project which the designer, contractor and most importantly, the client were all delighted with.

Oak Ashes Barn

Fully project managed with the contractor due to the client not being in the country for the build. Good communication was key to producing the right finishes. With the removal of a couple of walls we opened up the first floor to a better layout and did away with the fussy existing decor in favour of simple off-white which lets the beautiful timbers show themselves off. Simple wall washing lighting sets off the high ceilings after dark.   

Park Way

Tricky roof design with differing pitches and challenging angles for a quality roof tile. This wrap-around extension worked out really well and matching the tiles in tone, rather than size, with the existing worked. 

Downhouse Road

Reasonably simple extension, but great care needed to be taken to blend the new roof and brickwork in with the existing house. We took some elements from the existing house, such as the barn hip and ridge tiles, which makes the extension look convincingly original. 

 Pigeons Close

Single storey rear extension. Simple but effective design improved the rear elevation and floor plan.

Beatty Drive

Major renovation created a spacious home.
