Traditional Residential

Vernacular Design

Working with traditional buildings, whether extending a thatched cottage, or designing a new Arts & Craft style country house requires an appreciation of the vernacular.  Our knowledge of working with traditional building types extends to listed buildings, projects in conservation areas, and the restoration and refurbishment of historic buildings.  Some clients also seek a balance between traditional and contemporary design, carefully blending the character of an older building or style with modern, open-plan spaces to meet the requirements of contemporary living.  If you want to carry out work on a heritage property you will need to employ an architect with specialised skills and experience.
