Listed Coach House

Listed Coach House

A Grade II Listed House in the Cotswolds AONB

This Grade II listed house in the Cotswolds was previously a scattered and unloved collection of buildings. We brought the pieces back together, putting the new kitchen where there had been a Dairy for milking cows and connecting the house with a brightened staircase and entranceway.

Moving the staircase into the old dining room allowed us to improve the bedrooms and main living room, and make the route from the new kitchen to upstairs much shorter.

The design carefully stitches the old dairy and the house together. A deep well was found during construction and was carefully incorporated to sit right in the doorway into the kitchen under a structural glass cover. Watch your step!

Client Feedback:

“Tom has helped us over several years to change the layout and to renovate our old, Cotswold, coaching inn. A listed building. His drawings were particularly good, much better than architects we have previously used, being clear and accurate with excellent use of computer simulated images so we could perfect the design and get a good appreciation of what the finished building would be like.

He had some really great ideas for the layout of our kitchen, dining and utility room and with a particularly tricky design for an attic master bedroom with glass-walled en-suite. He made the most of the building but was always being willing to listen to our thoughts and incorporate them in the plans so it felt like our project not his.

He has great attention to detail and really thinks through how things will be made. He was sympathetic to the old building, caring to preserve the structure and feel of it, whilst transforming it into a comfortable, modern space suitable for family living for many more decades. 

Even though it has taken us many years to complete the project Tom has remained enthusiastic about it and dedicated to it always willing to solve a problem in a practical manner and answer a query quickly and clearly. I would recommend him for any project, large or small, old or contemporary.”

About Me  

Architecture should be uplifting and memorable. It should feel permanent and durable. It should be relevant to its place, framing key views and oriented to the climatic conditions, bringing natural light deep within. I am committed to producing unique and memorable spaces and are a delight to inhabit.
