Outside London/ Poolhouse Extension

As part of a complete refurbishment, HEAT have gained planning consent for a gymnasium and pool extension to a large detached house in South Woodford. The design, with a lightweight laminated timber roof that oversails the terrace allows for an outdoor hot tub and works well with the design of the garden. It is important for “garden rooms” to respect the feeling of the garden and to divide and enclose outdoor space in a meaningful way. This room creates a sheltered dining area and outdoor spaces to play and rest. The materials act as an intermediary between the house and the garden.

Outside London/ Chichester Extension

HEAT are studying options for the extension of a detached farmhouse near Chichester. The house is sited in the National Park and in a Conservation Area, so a sensitive approach is necessary. This photomontage tests the concept of a new gable wing to the right hand side.

Project 101


Listed Building/Outside London/ Listed Building in Bath

It is easy to forget that the  beautiful, homogenous terraces of Bath were built speculatively and piecemeal, like all Victorian housing. This end-of terrace house was completed after all the others and built without an upper storey, either because of financial constraints at the time or because the first owners did not require one.  HEAT were asked to look at the options for adding an additional storey and explored two alternatives with the planners – one with a visibly expressed mansard and the other to match the adjacent houses with a flat fronted additional storey. Which would you have chosen? 🙂

Education/Outside London/ New Performing Arts Centre

HEAT Architecture have completed the Building Regulations approvals and construction of a new performing arts centre for a school in Shepperton, West London. Working on behalf of Ash Design HEAT prepared construction drawings and site inspections for this two storey brick structure which houses a new theatre, catering facilities and rehearsal rooms.
