Hunstanton Bungalow in AJ

Phillips Tracey Architects’ has obtained planning permission for a contemporary extension to an existing bungalow in traditional Old Hunstanton, Norfolk. In response to this, Phillips Tracey Architects aimed to maximise the potential of the site by increasing accommodation and improving the property’s presence. A new rear extension will replace the existing conservatory; this will be vaulted to provide a generous kitchen/dining room, which opens out to the re-landscaped garden. Carefully positioned rooflights and large glazed sliding doors will allow the new spaces to be bathed with natural light as well as providing for passive ventilation throughout the property.

The sustainably sourced materials will echo the modest alterations with a simple palette that reference the local area. The existing walls are re-clad in timber weatherboarding, which also provides the opportunity to improve the home’s thermal performance.

Muswell Hill in Architecture Today

Muswell Hill is an elegant example of cohesive design, linking traditional and contemporary architecture. Alongside a faithful reconstruction of a Victorian villa that stood on the site, Mulroy Architects have added a striking contemporary companion volume to form a unique three bedroom family home. The large entrance opens towards an impressive glazed light-well directly above the visual focus for the property, the bright yellow steel staircase. Polished concrete flooring continues through to the open plan living and kitchen space forming the heart of the home.

Arched windows softly frame each room, showcasing the clients’ strong decorative style. The contemporary element adds two large bedrooms and adjacent bathrooms, which echo the entrance sky light, allowing natural light to flow in easily.

Stahlwerk Augustfehn on Wallpaper*

The project is the result of a decade of regeneration at Stahlwerk Augustfehn, a small steel factory in rural North Germany, where beautiful rare survivals of Germany’s industrial past are now accompanied by crisp contemporary architecture. Alongside new production facilities, Finkernagel Ross has captured the unique industrial heritage of Stahlwerk Augustfehn by restoring and displaying industrial artefacts in the new buildings. These unearthed artefacts of a bygone era include a painstakingly restored former factory clock, a listed steam engine dating from 1902 (the only one of its kind still in operation) and several old original steel hammers. Wallpaper* covered the story in February 2018.

Southwick Yard on dezeen

Southwick Yard is an intimate four-double bedroom house by Belsize Architects, nestled in a secluded gated mews at the heart of Connaught Village in the Hyde Park Estate. Previously, a small, drab one-bedroom mews cottage in Southwick Yard offered limited opportunities for occupancy. In developing the site for the Church Commissioners, Belsize Architects advised that demolishing and replacing the existing building – rather than extending or remodelling it – and adding a basement would maximise the site’s potential, both spatially and financially. Southwick Yard was covered by dezeen in February 2018.
