One off homes

Two new dwellings for open market sale

Completed in 2010 this contract for a private developer came to the practice via Lawson Construction.  Although deals had been struck between Client and Contractor and the scheme had gained full planning permission the information provided left a lot to be desired.  Working with all parties concerned Russell Hobbis Architects “engineered” the scheme to fit the site and went on to producing full working drawings.  In addition the contractor was assisted through the paperwork involved in achieving compliance with Code Level 3 of the Code for Sustainable Homes.

One off house
Hamilton Avenue

One off houseOne new dwelling for an individual client.
Completed in 1991 this contract for a new house in the rear garden of the Client’s existing house was introduced to the practice via a contractor.
Initially Russell Hobbis Architects worked through this contractor but finally worked directly for the client to re-design the property and guide it through from the early stages through to completion on site.
The build process was not without its problems but after 19 years the property remains as built and sits comfortably in the neighbourhood.

New House
Trinity Road

New house Trinity RoadOne new dwelling through John Grooms H.A. for an extended family with disabilities located in Aston.

Completed in 2006 this commission came through contacts in the housing association sector.
The brief was to accommodate a family of 10, 6 of whom were, or would be shortly become, wheelchair bound.  The design built on and extended from an existing house type previously built, as there is little point in re-designing the wheel, however, due to the numbers of occupants and their particular needs the resulting house bears little resemblance to its origins.  On a site that had lain vacant for many years the design endeavoured to fit between a mixture of housing styles and periods whilst maintaining a character of its own.
