New Builds

In many ways, building a new home from scratch is harder than extending and remodelling an existing one.

Where to start?

How do you respond to the site and its surroundings?

What are the planning implications?

What will be the most appropriate architectural style?

When there are a multitude of options available, it’s easy to be overwhelmed.

Building a house from scratch is like putting the first footprints into newly fallen snow.

Extensions

Extensions are the most common and often the most complex building projects. Making a new extension look as if it belongs to the original house is a challenging design puzzle, which can be hard to solve.

Do you extend as existing (more of the same)?

Do you do something bold and modern (juxtaposition)?

Do you play games with style (Theatrical)?

There are so many issues to consider even before you approach the complex three dimensional problem of making a new structure work next to an existing one.

We love extending houses. It’s like helping a person grow to reach their full potential and overcome their current limitations.

Interior Design

Architecture encloses space. Interior design inhabits space. Once the architecture is complete you begin the new project of living in your new home.

Colours, decorations, details and light all contribute to enhancing the character of the space that you and your architect have created.

Colours

Decorations

Details & Light

This is the job of the interior designer. This person may be you! But if you need help choosing from the myriad of paint colours, wallpaper samples, Tiles and flooring, Fixtures, furniture and fittings we can help.

Conservation

Working in a heritage setting, whether that is in a conservation area or a listed building, presents a range of additional considerations over and above the normal project.

Waterland Associates’ very first two projects in 1997 were the conversion of a listed mill to become housing and a new house in a conservation area. We have been successfully working on all forms of conservation project ever since.

Our approach to conservation is a practical one. We believe that in order to stay viable buildings in a conservation setting need to respond to the requirements of modern life.

Conservation Areas

Listed Buildings

Heritage Architecture

We understand that historical fabric and detail needs to be protected for posterity. But we believe conservation is primarily about conserving a quality of design and workmanship, not simply slavishly copying a historical style.

Working closely with clients and appropriate expert specialists (architectural historians, specialist contractors and suppliers) we will ensure that your conservation project both serves your needs and respects the quality and character of the original building or conservation setting.
