Our clients needed an architect in Ashburton, Devon to provide them with a Full Architectural Service for their New build residential development of 18 flats.
The Ashburton Cattle Market site is situated in the heart of Ashburton, surrounded by historic and listed buildings. We have designed 18 apartments, housed in two blocks, split over three storeys. The timber structure will be clad with a combination of coloured render, slate hanging and local stone, designed to blend in with the local vernacular architecture. The design was developed in conjunction with the Environment Agency to address the inherent flood risk issues within the area.
Detailed consultations were held with Dartmoor National Park and the Town Council before submission. The application received unanimous support at the planning Committee meeting and was praised for its sympathetic design within the heart of this historic town.
Construction is due to start in Summer 2010.
We hired van Ellen Sheryn to provide us with a full design service, from concept through to plans and managing the planning process.
We found them to be a great team of smart experienced people who worked together very effectively to provide us with a faultless service. They listened and they worked hard for us. In fact, it’s fair to say that they worked really hard for us, it was impressive. They have a genuine desire to please and we found them real team players.
The result of their efforts made for an application that totally worked for us and our needs, the application pushed the planning boundaries but not so much that the application was refused and made costly, they trod the line perfectly.
I sit writing this in our now completed two story extension, it really is a picture of beauty inside and out. It’s a home design that works for every occasion and we are delighted. So much credit sits squarely on the van Ellen Sheryn’s teams shoulders, we’d recommend and work with them again without hesitation.
