Introduction This book contains a collection of drawings and photographs of projects completed by Designscape since it was founded in 2005. It is intended only as a starting reference point for our work, illustrating the depth and range of the work we have done to date.

Practice Profile Designscape is a design-led architecture practice, with a wide range of projects throughout the UK. We work across all sectors – our current work ranges all the way from residential projects and larger housing schemes to a production studio and art gallery. Whatever the task, we enjoy bringing design flair, sensitivity and expertise to our work. Whatever the size and nature of the project, we are motivated by our desire to ensure that all commissions are completed to the highest possible standard. Our work includes interesting contemporary new build projects, as well as schemes that bring new life and identity to historic and listed buildings. We enjoy using new technology where this can benefit our buildings and their users. All our projects aim to minimize their environmental impact and keep running and maintenance costs low. We want our clients to find the experience of working with us, and using a Designscape building, an enjoyable and rewarding one.


.

Annual Study Trips The team at Designscape Architects is motivated and professional. We try to keep it that way with a very open culture where the whole team shares in the responsibilities as well as the rewards. The studio is a friendly, creative and professional environment, where we enjoy the company of our colleagues and value their individual skills and areas of expertise. One way in which we keep ourselves fresh and motivated is to go on a long weekend trip each year, visiting a different city and looking at some of the best and most inspiring architecture around Europe.

Private House Renovation and Extension Location: Client: Status:

.

Bath Private Completed 2013

Our brief in developing designs for this project was to replace a small galley kitchen, dark breakfast room, tired utility room and under-used conservatory. The end result needed to be light and bright, provide a direct and open relationship between the house and garden, with enough space to function as a multi-purpose room where the family would spend much of their time together. Our proposal created a new open plan space which stretched across the back of the house containing the kitchen and family room. We moved the family spaces closer to the garden and the light, and the utility room into the house where natural light was less important.

Before 2012

Large areas of glazing bring high levels of natural daylight into the house. A full width sliding door and floor to ceiling window system blurred the boundary between inside and outside, bringing the garden into the house and making the garden more accessible and usable.

Hardy House


Private Art Gallery & Residence Location: Client: Status:

13.

Box, Wiltshire Hardy House Gallery Completed 2012

This former shop, and latterly a working man’s club, was bought by our artist client with a plan to open part of the house to exhibitions of work by herself and other artists. The renovation work included a complete strip out of the interiors and a re arrangement of the internal spaces to allow the building to function as both a home and a gallery. The building envelope was renovated sensitively with minimal impact on the exterior so that the pure white interior spaces stand out in strong contrast. The spaces are designed so that the art on show is allowed maximum presence. The interior renovation required a high degree of detailing and accuracy, all completed on a modest budget.

Before 2011

We are now involved in the design of a second phase of the project; a stand-alone art studio in the garden.

House Lansdown


Private House Renovation and Extension Location: Client: Status:

21.

Lansdown, Bath Private Completed 2014

We were appointed by our clients to develop designs for alterations to this Victorian house prior to them moving in. Our brief was to extend the house to provide new accommodation to better suit the requirements of the family. The extension was to include a larger master bedroom suite, and a kitchen dining room to make more of the relationship with the garden and the great views over the city of Bath. This resulted in an extended wing to the rear, with a new timber framed garden room and enlarged terrace, which has space for the family to relax and entertain friends.

Private House Remodelling and Extension Location: Client: Status:

29.

Holt, Wiltshire Private Completed 2012

This house was not listed but perhaps in another place would have been. It is an interesting building dating back to the early C18th. The house was at one time used as a small family sized factory for making mattresses. An extension was added in the mid eighteenth century which was in use as a fire station for a while. This family house had a tiny kitchen – standing room only – so our work involved the renovation of the services in the house and the replacement of the rear extension with a new enlarged structure to house the new kitchen and a study. The kitchen can now operate as the centre of family life, with triple width doors that can open fully to link the living space to the garden. These works also enabled some limited organisation of the ground floor to improve the flow of the main living spaces.

Science Formaldehyde Studio


Specialist Art Studio Gallery Location: Client: Status:

35.

Stroud, Gloucestershire Damien Hirst / Science Ltd. Completed 2012

This building forms part of a campus of specialist art production studio buildings. The formaldehyde studio is the only new building, with the others all being radical refurbishments of a collection of redundant factory buildings. The independent formaldehyde studio building is placed adjacent to the main studio and Gallery. Located at the entrance to the site, it also acts as a gatehouse to provide security for the whole site. The formaldehyde studio requires unique accommodation and dedicated services, including specialist ventilation equipment to filter out the formaldehyde fumes. As well as large-scale freezer storage, specialist lifting equipment has been incorporated for handling large and delicate art works.

Before 2006

The building is sheathed in white glazed bricks with 4mm mortar joints to create a sculptural monolithic appearance with a fine grained reflective surface texture.

Art Production Studio and Gallery Location: Client: Status:

Stroud, Gloucestershire Damien Hirst / Science Ltd. Completed 2012

From 2006 to 2012 Designscape has designed and over seen the construction of the largest purpose built art production studio in the world: a 9,000sqm studio and gallery for Damien Hirst. The project reuses an existing steel portal frame structure, originally built for the manufacture of plastics. The brief involved a high level of design, detail and finish, including exceptionally high structural loading requirements and innovative cladding and glazing. The building is split into three bays: reception and gallery, art production, and storage facilities, with each area defined externally through cladding panels of contrasting colours. The artist’s production of large-scale art work requires highly specialised accommodation, including freezer storage and a fire protected art store. The western riverside boundary has become a sculpture garden.

Horse Shoe House


Refurbishment of a Listed Late Georgian Townhouse Location: Client: Status:

51.

Sydney Buildings, Bath Private Completed 2013

Sydney Buildings is a desirable street on the southern slopes of central Bath. Our client purchased Horse Shoe House as a rundown property previously used as student accommodation, with the aspiration to return it back into a family home. After careful analysis of the historic value of various aspects of the building fabric we prepared a scheme that stripped away the modern layers of inappropriate interventions, repaired original features and sensitively introduced new services to make the house fit for modern life. The structural repairs included the need to re build significant sections of the rear elevation which had suffered some settlement - made worse by earlier repair efforts.

Before 2012

The highlight of the works is the new contemporary double-height bay window in the basement that opens out into the garden providing views across the Kennet and Avon Canal and to the city skyline beyond.

Hart Close


Domestic Extension Location: Client: Status:

61.

Ham Green, Bristol Private Completed 2012

Located on the southern edge of the river Avon near Bristol, this detached house was poorly connected to the large rear garden. The client required an open plan extension containing a kitchen, and dining and seating areas to function as the social heart of the home. Both natural and artificial lighting have been carefully considered to allow for a variety of atmospheres within the large space to suitably reflect the varying activities. The external walls of the extension are constructed of a thermally efficient insulated render system, creating a bold white contemporary volume against the existing red brick house. A large corner window, rooflight and glazed sliding doors allow the deep plan to be naturally lit whilst creating expansive views of the garden.

Innox Lodge


Contemporary Garden Room Location: Client: Status:

69.

Somerset Private Completed 2012

Located on the edge of a village with wide views across the rural landscape, this unlisted early Victorian house required complete renovation. We proposed a re ordering of the way that the site worked, so that the kitchen, on the more private side of the house, could be more closely connected to the garden. This meant that the arrival and car parking areas had to be re located, but this allowed the building of a new garden room which now forms the primary daytime living space in the house. The contemporary design of the new addition remains sympathetic to its setting through the use of traditional materials including bath stone ashlar and preformed lead panels that match the materials of the original house.

Before 2011

Works to the house included a number of alterations including the creation of a large opening from the kitchen to the new garden room, and a new staircase from the garden room into the basement rooms below. The basement was converted into a play room and cinema room. The house was re roofed to provide modern insulation standards and the internal services were completely renewed prior to the house being re decorated throughout.

Dane Rise


Extension and Refurbishment of 1970’s Former Bungalow Location: Client: Status:

Winsley, Wiltshire Private Completed 2012

83.

All of the bedrooms in this C20th extended house were set into the roof space and had restricted head-room. So when the client wished to add an additional bedroom, the desire was to avoid this situation. The resultant cedar clad flat roof extension achieves this whilst staying below the ridge of the existing roof. Its strong volume against the existing house is

used to demarcate the new entrance lobby below where two of the walls are glazed to allow a connection with the front garden whilst the third, clad in metal externally, forms builtin storage for coats and shoes. To the rear of the property the reconstituted stone extension was re clad using the same timber board to tie the front and rear of the property together.

Refurbishment and Extension of Cotswold Cottage Location: Client: Status:

91.

Kemble, Gloucestershire Private Completed 2012

This contemporary extension is located to the rear of a quintessential ‘Cotswold’ cottage in a small hamlet on the outskirts of Kemble. The brief called for additional space for the client and their four children. Incorporating the footings of a smaller extension on the same site, the new accommodation comprises a family room, WC and new entrance on the ground floor, and two bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor. A feature glass and timber staircase sits in a glazed transition space between the new extension and the original cottage.

Before 2009

The design of the new extension provides a strong counterpoint to the original cottage - a distinctly legible later addition. The extension separates public from private external space, giving a clear sense of arrival and privacy respectively, and provides an unimpeded link from the living area to the private garden.

Extension to a Listed Meeting House Location: Client: Status:

Claverton Down, Bath Private Completed 2011

101.

The challenge was to provide additional accommodation for this Grade ll listed former Meeting House in Claverton, Bath. The original building had already been converted into a small house in the 1990s with a rear extension designed loosely to match the original building. The new side extension provides an additional bedroom and a bathroom which allowed the owners to remain in the house and not have to move to accommodate a growing family. The visual appearance of the extension from the street is minimal - not even really looking like a building at all - so as not to compete with the strong architectural language of the original building.

Before 2010

The timber framed and clad structure is a strong counterpoint to the host building, and provides a sustainable and high performance building envelope. The new extension is connected to the original masonry building with a frameless glass link. Larger areas of glazing connect the bedroom to the garden on the rear side. A rooflight to the new bathroom frames a view of a carved angel on the original building.

Cedar House


Sustainable Renovation Location: Client: Status:

Westbury Park, Bristol Private Completed 2010

111.

The client had purchased a dilapidated 1950s house in a residential street in Bristol, and wanted to transform it into a modern, bright and low energy family home. After discussions about the merits of retaining all, part or none of the existing accommodation, it was decided to leave the front part of the house intact with a new extension to the rear. The retained section was renovated and included a new slate roof and new windows, and was over clad with insulated render to improve the thermal performance. The rear of the house took on a softer character using western red cedar cladding and contained the new heart of the house; a double height dining space with direct access into the kitchen and a new staircase leading to a first floor gallery.

Shortlisted, Daily Telegraph / Homebuilding & Renovating Awards 2012

Before 2009

After 2010

The house has a harder more formal street side, and a much softer and more open private garden side, with most of the glazing facing south to maximize the passive solar design potential.

Suburban House Renovation Location: Client: Status:

119.

This detached house was originally constructed in 1965 and is located on a suburban street close to the centre of Bath. Our clients bought the property with the desire to upgrade and extend the accommodation to suit their growing family. They had previously lived in a Georgian townhouse in Bath, but came to realise that the suburban model has certain features which make the detached suburban house much more convenient for family life.

Bathwick, Bath Private Completed 2011

The new alterations have a minimal impact on the front of the house, instead providing a dramatic transformation of the living spaces at the rear and improving their connection to the garden. This has been achieved by extending outwards and to the side which, with the removal of the existing external and internal walls at ground level, creates a generous open plan living space. An additional bedroom on the first floor was also provided and the rest of the house was refurbished to a provide a modern, day lit and more energy efficient living environment.

Extension to a Village Cottage Location: Client: Status:

125.

This semi-detached building was formerly a workers cottage, and had both cramped and outdated accommodation. We helped transform it by adding two single storey extensions to almost double the footprint. These extensions, one to the front and one to the rear, were designed to respect the original cottage. The space to the rear creates a new living room with access out onto an excavated patio area, whilst the front extension houses a new entrance porch, lobby and breakfast room.

Both are constructed using a simple palette of air dried oak, ashlar stone, lead and slate which matches the existing building.

The Fosse


Renovation and Extension of a Victorian Villa Location: Client: Status:

Batheaston Private Completed 2010

This Victorian villa set in a village location has been altered on numerous occasions in the past, and the client purchased the house in a state of disrepair. The design concept of the work was to reverse the orientation of the house and place the main entrance in the rear north elevation, allowing the elegant south faรงade and its adjacent garden to become a private sanctuary for the family. The new double-height entrance hall looks over a newly excavated courtyard. Piling and a considerable amount of earth moving were required to allow this to happen, but the result transformed the possibilities of the house. The courtyard is lined with a rubble bath stone wall that wraps around the space and creates a roof terrace over the garage. The wall also penetrates through the new glass screen to form an internal first floor gallery, linking inside with outside.

Hill Farm Dairy


Goat Cheese Dairy Location: Client: Status:

Stawley, Somerset Hill Farm Dairy Completed 2009

141.

Designscape was commissioned to design a barn and dairy production facility for a new cheese making company. The design aims to reflect both the ethos of the client company and the site: a quality handmade product, using natural materials and low energy solutions, created with respect for its surroundings.

hill, enabling the barn and the milking parlour to sit above the dairy. The cold storage and maturing areas are pushed back into the hillside under the parlour. The result is a low impact design that naturally enhances the cheese making process - the milk can flow by gravity from parlour to dairy, avoiding pumping, and thus preserving the quality of the milk.

Despite their size the buildings do not dominate the hillside site, taking advantage of the natural topography. They step down the Shortlisted, RIBA Awards 2011 Runner-up, Commercial Category, RIBA Town & Country Awards 2010

Court Farm


Restoration and Refurbishment to a Listed Building Location: Client: Status:

Langridge, Bath Private Phase 1 Completed 2010

149.

Located in the heart of the Green Belt in the Langridge valley, Court Farm comprises a Grade II* listed mediaeval manor house and former threshing barn. Working closely with the local conservation officer, a masterplan proposal was prepared to include for the repair and refurbishment of both the historic buildings. Works to the C15th house included the removal of low quality utilitarian additions, roofing repairs and the unblocking of historic doorways to re link the tower structure to the rest of the house.

At ground floor this provided a new utility and shower room, whilst at first floor a new ante room was turned into the ‘court room’ that continues to be used for local community events. To reinforce the importance of this room, a new window in the west elevation was created. The barn required some structural repair, and the metal roof replaced with a clay tiled roof. Some new overnight accommodation and a small kitchen were inserted into one end of the barn allowing the primary volume to remain clearly legible as a single volume.

Kingsbury Croft


Brick and Lead Extension Location: Client: Status:

163.

Marlborough, Wiltshire Private Completed 2011

The existing house in the heart of Marlborough suffered from poor connections to the rear south facing garden. The simple construction of the new extension comprises a galvanized steel frame and glazing to the garden elevations to maximise views and connections, whilst the external east elevation maintains privacy by continuing the existing boundary wall using handmade red bricks to match. The space is accessed via a new wide structural opening from the refurbished kitchen and also links an existing workshop with the rest of the house. A bay window at first floor level further enhances views out from the house, overlooking the green roof of the new garden room, planted with wild flowers, concealing the rooflight to the space below. The new works are an exercise in exploiting and re inventing the detailing of the materials which already existed on the site - red brick and lead. The success of the design relies on the honest approach to the brief - meeting the functional requirements - and on the materiality and detailing of the new elements.

Frankley Buildings


Extension to a Listed Georgian Cottage Location: Client: Status:

Camden, Bath Private Completed 2009

This Grade II listed Georgian terrace house lies on a steep site in the centre of Bath. The project replaces an existing poor quality conservatory to the rear of the dwelling that disconnected the main accommodation from the rear garden. The new replacement is a contemporary addition in glass and steel designed to touch the existing building as lightly as possible.

171.

Structural glass beams maximise daylight, and the reinstatement of an opening in the rear wall of the house re establishes a visual and physical connection with the outside space. The new addition also provides a new washroom, open plan kitchen, dining and utility areas, whilst improving access to the elevated garden.

Twinneys


New House in the Green Belt Location: Client: Status:

Charlcombe, Bath Private Completed 2009

LOWER FLOOR PLAN

175.

This award winning new house is built on the site of a former piggery and lies within the Bath & Bristol Green Belt in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The design is conceived as a low-lying timber and glass structure supported on a terraced landscape, to blur the boundary between building and terrain. Sleeping accommodation is situated on the lower ground floor of the house with the entrance and open-plan kitchen, dining

and lounge spaces above. Three terraces open out from the living areas affording panoramic views across the valley. The thermal mass and high performance of the building envelope is complemented by solar hot water panels to provide a low energy solution. A partially autonomous artist’s studio and gallery is built into the hillside to the rear.

Artist Studio

To the rear of the new Twinneys house is a private artist’s studio and gallery built into the hillside. The green roof is planted with wild flowers to blend into the surrounding landscape with a linear rooflight being the only indication of the space below. Inside, large sliding glass windows flood the internal areas with natural daylight and open out onto a private sculpture courtyard.

Exposed bush hammered concrete complements the dry stone walling to the separate entrance. The studio is designed to operate independently from the main house with its own washing and cleaning facilities, affording the opportunity for other artists to work there.

Squash House


Re purposed Squash Court Location: Client: Status:

189.

Lansdown, Bath Private Completed 2007

The existing house had been developed within the walls of a former squash club in 2002. This initial conversion failed to make the most of the original building and the client’s brief was to remedy this to provide an environment to suit modern family living. The design inverts the internal accommodation to provide connected living spaces with direct access onto the private external courtyards. New glazed doors slide back into the walls making full-width openings that link the internal and external areas. Bedrooms are relocated to the upper floor behind new clerestory windows with views over Bath. A new open-tread oak staircase connects the three floors and forms the back-bone to the re invented house.

Minimal Intervention Location: Client: Status:

Bath Private Completed 2009

199.

This is an extremely modest extension to the rear of a Grade II listed Georgian terraced town house in Bath. Designed to provide sheltered access to a new accessible WC on the ground floor for the elderly owner, it uses only four panes of glass and one section of steel to avoid interrupting the view of the garden from the adjacent drawing room.

Before 2007

The lightness and transparency of the contemporary addition both contrasts and compliments the heavy masonry of the original building. The properties of glass and steel are exploited to create an elegant and restrained architectural response that meets the functional requirements with minimal impact on the existing building.

Restoration and Refurbishment to a Listed Building Location: Client: Status:

Norton Sun-Hamdon, Somerset Private Phase 1 Completed 2008

Before 2005

After 2008

Originally dating from the C16th, this Grade II listed house built from the local Ham stone has been modified and extended over the centuries. The brief from the client was to re organise and upgrade the existing accommodation and carry out repairs to the historic fabric. The first phase of this work involved the relocation of the kitchen from the centre of the house into a

207.

new extension to connect it with the garden. The scale, massing and materials of the sensitive new addition respect that of the historic house yet are unmistakably contemporary in detail. The house remained occupied during the two stages of work, which also involved the repair of the listed stables and a number of environmental improvements.
