The Brief

To create a new Arts and Crafts style inspired home suitable for contemporary, low energy living, in a conservation area in Sheffield.

Our Approach

Introducing natural light and openness to the typical Arts and Craft style, our designs neither slavishly followed this style nor starkly juxtaposed it with white boxes or glazing elements. Instead a third way was found which was both fresh and still quite simple but showed a softer more crafted aesthetic design.
With our wealth of knowledge and experience using traditional stone constructions and detailing we were able to bring a sure but light touch to this project.
Working collaboratively with our clients and builders and adopting a very enquiring approach we brought new building technologies to the project.

The Result

A stunning and rather unique Arts and Craft style house, with the WOW factor (our client’s words!) and light filled, versatile living spaces. The house provides contemporary modern day living yet is in keeping with the area and it’s surroundings. Our clients will also benefit from significantly reduced energy consumption and lower bills.
