It’s no secret that the Cotswolds is a truly beautiful place, from its picture-postcard little villages nestled between its rolling hills and gently flowing streams to its honey-hued Grade II Listed buildings. It’s not surprising that as an architectural practice based in the Cotswolds, the surrounding Area of Outstanding Natural beauty inspires our designs.
With conservation areas and the AONB it is essential that our designs are created in sympathy with the surrounding countryside, maximising views through contemporary extensions and glass links which also combine original features such as oak beams and framework. Creating a separate dwelling which links to an original part of a building of historic importance helps to preserve the original features and stonework whilst also lending a contemporary twist which is sympathetic to its surroundings.
“Being a Cotswold architect, I love the beauty and the artistic freedom that the landscape brings. It inspires me every day to design what I love most – a client’s perfect home which not only inspires them but brings them a real sense of calm” – Ashleigh Clarke, Founder & Architect
