Contemporary Design within Conservation Area


GRA have recently submitted a high-end, contemporary, timber-clad extension along with a  supporting 31 page Design and Access statement, for consideration.

The proposal intends to modernise family living whilst being respectful to the existing architectural style.  An innovative design solution, using a contemporary palette to create a beautifully bespoke addition to their home. 

Conservation applications can be some of the most challenging due to the amount of policy hurdles.  

We relish a good challenge.



*Update* - 17.10.2017

Planning approval has now been granted for this application (subject to condition) which is great news!  Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council were engaged throughout, allowing us to achieve a collaborative approach to the design.  Time for some celebration...

Best architectural photograph of the year announced

A shot of a brick reservoir in London's Finsbury Park has been selected as the best architecture photograph of the year at the Arcaid Images Architectural Photography Awards 2016.

The image, taken by British photographer Matt Emmett, captures the brick arches of the covered reservoir, which was designed by the East London Waterworks Company in 1868.

A chapel by Peter Zumthor, a red brick gallery by Herzog & De Meuron and a São Paulo museum by Linda Bo Bardi were among the subjects of 20 images shortlisted for architecture photograph of the year.
