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.
From the start you approached the assignment with a level of creativity and originality, as well as an understanding of how we wanted to live as a family, not shown by any of the many other architects we spoke to. Throughout you have demonstrated exemplary attention to detail, patience and a clear enjoyment in what you do. We started with a run down, dark, claustrophobic house and have ended up with a property truly worthy of its setting in the most beautiful countryside I know.
