\n

This property has been completely refurbished and extended to provide a stunning family home in Leeds. The design approach was to restore key elements of the historic building, with contemporary new additions that reflect the context and proportions of the Victorian villa. The house was re-orientated around a new cobbled courtyard, green-roofed loggia and entrance with high-level, glazed lanterns that bring lots of light and drama into the interior spaces. The stairwell was remodelled with double height spaces providing an elegant route through the heart of the house with long views and visual connections, including from a beautiful bedroom suite […]<\/p>\n <\/div>\n \n <\/div>\n<\/div>

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 new footbridge for the Climate Innovation District is on the old Low Fold Mill site, \u00a0located over the River Aire in Leeds. The bridge design is a collaborative exploration by GAGARIN and DP Squared and creates a simple yet visually fascinating river crossing for pedestrians either on foot, by bike, wheelchair or boat; connecting\u00a0developments to the left and right bank, the tow path, the wider area of the River Aire and the city centre beyond. The 50 metre long bridge is formed in a series of profiled corten steel slats which appear to fold and crank across its length. […]<\/p>\n <\/div>\n \n <\/div>\n<\/div>

Gagarin Studio and DP Squared Engineers, working with The Landscape Agency, have secured planning approval for a new bridge at RHS Garden Harlow Carr, North Yorkshire. The Thaliana Bridge will span over the Queen Mother Lake at the south end of the gardens creating improved access, new routes and new views to and from the bridge across the water. New lakeside gardens are proposed by The Landscape Agency and an existing bank of trees will be strengthened to provide a more effective buffer to the adjacent road noise. The bridge design is inspired by the pioneering research of Dr Rachel […]<\/p>\n <\/div>\n \n <\/div>\n<\/div>
