The house at Pecket Well sees the remodel and extension of a 17th century pennine farmhouse, creating a modern, comfortable and sustainable family home. The house has been fully remodelled with improved thermal performance of the whole building, \u00a0renewable forms of heating and power, along with joinery and fit-out elements that reflect the modern, rural aesthetic.\u00a0 The extension provides a picture window with a 360′ view of the stunning landscape in which it’s located and a wonderful space in which to experience all the weathers of the Calder Valley.<\/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 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>

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>

Our design for a modern replacement dwelling in the Lake District National Park received full support from the Local Planning Authority. Whilst undeniably a modern house, we wanted to ensure that this was a sensitive piece of contextual design, \u00a0and one that reflected the vernacular form and materials of the Lake District, \u00a0balanced with a modern approach to living. The design sets the house into the hillside topography, elevating the living spaces with glorious views out over Ullswater and up to Helvellyn. The scheme makes the most of the landscape, framing the fells and maximising light within the interior and […]<\/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>

Gagarin Studio received planning approval for a \u2019country house clause\u2019 home on moorland fringes in the South Pennines. \u00a0The practice utilised Paragraph 79 of the\u00a0revised\u00a0National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF), a\u00a0clause that allows exemplary new-build homes to be constructed in open countryside under special circumstances. The design continues a long established tradition of building Yeomen Clothiers houses in farmland in Calderdale; a house type that has inspired many of the later Arts & Crafts houses nationally. Our proposal re-envisages this \u2018Halifax House\u2019 vernacular for the 21st Century, with a modern, zero-carbon dwelling that can endure in the South Pennine climate.

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>

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>
