Traditional Self-Build With A Sustainable Twist
Helping a retired couple futureproof their home with forward-thinking design
A Traditional Self-Build With A Sustainable Twist
We initially appointed Croft Architecture to extend and refurbish our property, but after our initial conversations about what we wanted to achieve from the project they suggested to have a fresh start and demolish our existing bungalow to best achieve our vision from the land available. We wanted a dwelling where we could enjoy our retirement together, creating a home that was future proof in terms of maintenance, accessibility, and a sustainable natural energy supply.
The team at Croft Architecture listened and understood our vision and we were immediately impressed with the range of ideas they provided and their guidance with regards to a design that would work for us, and crucially, what was most likely get planning approval being on the cusp of a conservation area.
They’ve creatively solved a multitude of problems for us. We now have a light filled, energy efficient, modern home, that’s doubled in size from the existing property. The extra new space raised questions and doubt by the local planners, but Croft Architecture’s innovative and clever approach to the design of our new home enabled us to secure the planning permission we so wanted.
The house is so much better than we had ever anticipated. We now have home that we’re proud to show off, and in fact we’ve had a steady stream of neighbours wanting a tour of our beautiful new home.
Would we recommend Croft Architecture? In an instant! They have been a delight to work with, the team have been both professional and fun and they have always responded to our queries in an efficient manner.
They deliver a first-class friendly service and we would highly recommend them to anyone.
