\n

The Pennine farmhouse is a Grade 2 listed property on the edge of the hilltop village of Heptonstall in the Calder Valley. It’s made up of a string of buildings, cottage, barn ancillary building which stagger down the terrain toward a large garden and impressive views. The owners used only a small part of the property, the barn being used infrequently as it was a large cold space to inhabit permanently. The brief was to decant life to the south, garden end of the property, bringing the ancillary building and barn into better use and enabling better connection to the […]<\/p>\n <\/div>\n \n <\/div>\n<\/div>

One of our favourite contextual projects perched on the edge of the moors above Old Town, Hebden Bridge. The listed house, remodel and extension provides for a multi-generational family and the design allows everyone enough space and flexibility to be as together or independent as they want. The extension aims to frame the stunning Pennine setting whilst referencing the mullioned \u2018weavers cottage windows\u2019 of the main house and the ‘green roof’ blending beautifully with the moorland in which it’s located.<\/p>\n <\/div>\n \n <\/div>\n<\/div>

The project for Thorney Barn sees the creation of a new family home through the remodelling and repurposing of a derelict stone barn on an upland hillside overlooking the Luddenden Valley in West Yorkshire. Gagarin Studio were lead designers for the architecture, interiors, furniture and detail design of\u00a0 the project. The scheme completed in October 2018 creates a new family dwelling within a hamlet on an upland Pennine site. The design locates the core activities of the dwelling in the main barn and original outshut building; a new glazed link is inserted between barn and former outbuildings providing a \u2018garden […]<\/p>\n <\/div>\n \n <\/div>\n<\/div>

Orangebox Young People\u2019s Centre was built in Halifax for Square Chapel Centre for the Arts and funded by the Myplace BIG Scheme. The centre links to the Grade 1 listed Piece Hall and sees the conversion and extension of two Victorian buildings, originally built to store fruit and veg. The completed extension includes a wide variety of facilities for young people, including a dance studio, recording studio, climbing wall, rehearsal rooms, advice and counselling support, roof level skate park and roof garden. The design navigates the complex levels dictated by the topography and variety of existing buildings whilst forming new […]<\/p>\n <\/div>\n \n <\/div>\n<\/div>

IOU Theatre are an established International arts organisation who have relocated into Victoria Mill at the Dean Clough Complex. The phased project creates a new permanent gallery and exhibition space within Dean Clough; housing the IOU archive and a changing exhibition programme, as well as a large scale IOU Studio and offices for the company. Our approach has been to maximise the budget by developing inserted elements that are offset from the texture and history of the building fabric; to express the volume and height of the setting and to introduce new contemporary elements, thereby improving comfort, connectivity and accessibility; […]<\/p>\n <\/div>\n \n <\/div>\n<\/div>

A number of new developments are occurring to and around the Grade 1 Listed Piece Hall in Halifax. We developed ideas to form a new entrance into the Industrial Museum to connect with a new planned pedestrian route into the Piece Hall and new library. The museum had been closed for some considerable time but with the formation of a new trust and a group of knowledgable and passionate volunteers there was a desire to get the building and it’s fascinating contents back open again for the public to enjoy. The first phase of this, was to support the trust […]<\/p>\n <\/div>\n \n <\/div>\n<\/div>

Constable House sees the remodelling of a 1960s asymmetric-roofed house in Marple Bridge to form a modern family home. The house has been extensively remodelled and redesigned providing a large rear extension with a roof that mirrors the original, a large glazed screen onto a living \/dining space and a cedar-clad side element housing kitchen and utility areas. A modern house for modern times. A striking linear rooflight marks the line of old\/new and drops much needed daylight into the heart of the plan. Elsewhere in the original house, the ground floor is opened up and with space borrowed from […]<\/p>\n <\/div>\n \n <\/div>\n<\/div>

This project in rural South Yorkshire, sees the conversion of a redundant Victorian Coach house with the addition of a substantial extension; providing a contemporary, economical and sustainable family home for a museum curator, designer and their young family.\u00a0The house orientates around the sun, garden and adjoining woodland to provide spacious, workable and open family living-accommodation. Materials are sustainable, affordable and modern; offset by the texture and warmth of the existing building fabric. The low-level, rear addition mirrors the form of the original coach house whilst the two-storey extension provides a \u00a0‘book end’ of sleeping accommodation. The overall aim to […]<\/p>\n <\/div>\n \n <\/div>\n<\/div>

We designed a large two storey extension to a Grade 2 Listed farmhouse, (the former home of David \u201cKing\u201d Hartley, head of the Cragg Vale Coiners), in rural Calderdale. Steve had previously designed the conversion of the barn at Bell House which now forms Coiners Barn, a study centre and walkers b&b focused on the history of Cragg Vale Coiners, in particular their leader, David \u2018King\u2019 Hartley who lived there until his capture and hanging for the killing of a government inspector, in 1769. We were delighted when the clients came back to us to help them extend and remodel […]<\/p>\n <\/div>\n \n <\/div>\n<\/div>

Longhurst is a Victorian semi-detached house on the edge of Marple Bridge. The house had a formal arrangement of rooms and all the great character of a house of that age, but lacked connection to the wonderful rear garden which terraces down the valley side to the brook at the end. We developed proposals for a 2 storey extension at the rear of the house which effectively infilled the L-shaped plan on the upper level improving bedroom and bathroom arrangements on the first floor and attic. At the ground level the extension pushes out further with a clearly modern addition […]<\/p>\n <\/div>\n \n <\/div>\n<\/div>
