Offord Rd finished

Our residential project on Offord Road is now complete. The design concept was devised around honest and simple materials, openness and transparency combining glass, plywood, marble and a carefully chosen palette of accent colours for doors and architectural details. Secret storage inside walls makes use of every nook and cranny to maximise living space. Our brief specified a 50-year design life which has informed the choice of materials and construction techniques. Every joint, every junction, every surface and every movable component is designed to be easily upgraded and repaired by local tradesmen, saving expenditure in the future and responding to an absolute sustainability agenda.
