SCOTT BANK PRIVATE DEVELOPMENT

The commission brief was to design a private development of 10 four bedroom detached houses.

The site offered particular challenges for development due to its steep hillside location and existing features, such as existing retaining walls and a large but in-filled pond. Consequently, the scheme involved a large design input from drainage and structural engineers.
The house designs maximised internal floor area for the available plot size.

LUDDENDEN PRIMARY SCHOOL CONVERSION

A conversion of an old primary school to form 4 apartments over three storeys.

Three of the apartments were 3-bedroom and all featured en-suites, utility rooms and cloakrooms with WCs.
The building is Listed and situated in one of Halifax’s most treasured conservation areas. Existing timber school room partitions were reused as party wall cladding and feature doorways. Existing timber stairs and brickwork features were also retained.
The scheme involved the alteration of three substantial queen post timber roof trusses so that a second floor level could be formed.
