Great progress has been made on our ambitious new build house project. Following the completion of the demolition, temporary and ground works the recent progress has been particularly exciting as the new house begins to take shape. 2018 will see the completion of our first new build building!
It has been an exciting time on Claylands Road, with the project nearing completion and the bespoke joinery, designed by CPA and made in Italy, being installed on site in recent days. Finishing touches will continue into the New Year, when we will be able to reveal the fully completed project.
Ferndale has been selected to be shown in the New London Architecture's Don’t Move Improve exhibition in January next year. This is a showcase of some of the best home improvement and extension projects recently completed in London.
We’ve had a planning success in Bromley with permission given for our project on Nightingale Lane. The project proposes a bold contemporary extension and garden re-landscaping to an Edwardian semi-detached house.
We’ve been appointed to carry out at a 2,700sqm office fit out feasibility for a prime office building in central Bristol. Subject to our client confirming the lease we will develop the scheme to detailed concept design for tender.
Our re-developement project in Lambeth has been submitted to the GLA for pre application advice. We met with GLA to discuss the proposals and await their response before moving to the next stage.
We are currently working on a competition entry. The details need to be kept anonymous but some of the early studies are really exciting and worth sharing.
Oscar has passed his RIBA Part 3, with a distinction. Congratulations!
Peter Landers has taken a fantastic series of photos of our residential project in Bromley, completed earlier this year. Have a look at the updated project page to see more.
We have continued to work on the large scale development project in Lambeth that we last posted about in December 2016. Working with planning consultants DP9 we have progressed the design in preparation for a pre-application submission in the coming weeks. These preview images give a sense of the scale and ambition of the project, with more to be revealed in the coming months. The possibilities of the project are extremely exciting.
Our exciting project for the full rebuild of a terraced house in Brockley has been granted permission by the London Borough of Lewisham. The proposed rebuild is a response to numerous structural problems with the existing property. By being a full rebuild, the construction work will be zero rated for VAT, helping to offset some of the additional cost of the rebuild. The project is due to start on site in September.
Oscar McDonald has joined Conibere Phillips. A Part II architectural assistant with good experience working on some of the most prestigious projects in the UK, we are very excited about Oscar joining our team.
Our Elmwood Road project has received planning permission. The application is unusual because it includes the partial recladding of the neighbouring property. It is actually the 2nd planning application for the project, the first being a change of use application to re-combine two flats back into a single house.
Work has commenced on site at our Claylands Road project. This ambitious extension and refurbishment project is being built by Create Bespoke contractors.
Undercliff Road has been progressing rapidly on site with BCS heading for practical completion in mid June.
We have recently secured two new projects. One is in Earlsfield, the other in the heart of the Brockley Conservation Area.
Our article discussing the benefits of understanding Permitted Development rights and the complexity between it and planning policy is published in this Month’s RIBA Journal.
Good progress is being made on our project in Brockley, south east London. The main structural modifications have been completed and the transformation, from small 1 bed flat into a large 2 bed flat, is really beginning to take shape.
Paul gave a talk to Interior Architecture Degree students at Sheffield Hallam University. The talk focused on the collaborative nature of design, including Paul’s work on the Mary Rose Museum with interior and exhibition design specialists, and our own interior focused work for Dyson and King’s College London.
We welcomed Brian Hoy to Conibere Phillips this week. An architect with broad experience from the UK and around Europe we are very excited about what he will bring to the team.
Our geographical reach has been extended to north east London, and consolidated in south London, with our appointment on two new projects. In Stoke Newington we have been asked to look at the refurbishment of a maisonette flat within a Victorian terrace. In Dulwich we’re looking at extending a large 4 bed house at both ground and roof level.
We are very pleased to be working with Webb Yates Engineers on our major house refurbishment project in Dulwich. The proposals include the creation of a basement, double height dining / library space and a roof extension. Site investigations have been carried out and we are not working on the detailed design stage.
We recently met members of the Dyson Professional Sales Team and Press Team in their new offices on Oxford Street. Conibere Phillips designed the offices, located above the new Dyson Store, in the first half of 2016.
As well as the office space we designed a board room and meeting suite that is used as a London base for the company. It was fantastic to catch up with the Dyson team and receive positive feedback on the new spaces.
We are pleased to announce a new commission. Located around the corner from our Ferndale project, and secured following a referral from our client there, the project is for extension and reorganisation of the ground floor of a 3 storey semi-detached house.
We have been working on a large scale development project in Lambeth for a private client over the last couple of months. Having completed a feasibility study we are now forming a project team in advance of preparing and submitting a pre application submission in the early part of 2017.
Our extension and refurbishment project in Bromley is nearing completion. Work on site has progressed well and the new space looks fantastic. The client is looking forward to spending a family Christmas in the new kitchen and living space in just a few weeks time.
The Dyson HQ expansion project, that Robin was Project Architect on at Wilkinson Eyre before starting Conibere Phillips, was completed earlier in the year. We visited the buildings in May, while working on our own project for Dyson. The completed buildings look fantastic. A number of articles featuring some really great photos, taken by Peter Landers, of the project have recently been published. A selection of the these are linked to below:
Our ambitious reimagining of a poor quality rear addition to an early Victorian terraced house has received planning permission from Lambeth at the first attempt. The house is in a conservation area and the challenge of working with the unsympathetic existing rear addition was significant. We made a pre-application submission and worked closely with the Lambeth planning team to develop a design that everyone is excited by.
Our project for a large rear extension and refurbishment of a house in Bromley has been on site for 4 weeks. The main structural works are now complete and the project is on track for completion in December.
