The Pigshed

WIP: Elevation study for a new affordable housing model for rural communities. In a society where new build house prices are soaring, and construction quality is diminishing we are exploring new ways to challenge the current housing market. Simple construction techniques, coupled with low cost materials are arranged in intelligent and interesting ways, creating uplifting and empowering residential communities. . . . 14_CLUH Housing_2019 - 2021 . . . . . #taylorharearchitects #facadestudy #development #elevation #details #workinprogress #architecture #composition #design #concept #drawing #materiality #newbuild #lowcost #housing #affordablehousing #dwellinghouse #residentialdesign #community #corrugated #metal #timber #cladding #landscape #kent

WIP: House in a Clearing Facade studies for a new build house arranged around a series of courtyards. A blend of corrugated cladding, shingle and two tones of vertical timber cladding define a series of conceptual material compositions. Each material study is explored with the structural character, building form and the wider environment in mind, ensuring that in their collective substance lies a permanent connection to the buildings landscape setting. . . . 21_BLZC Residential_2019 - 2021 . . . . . #taylorharearchitects #facadestudy #development #elevation #details #builtform #workinprogress #architecture #composition #courtyard #design #concept #drawing #permanence #materiality #newbuildhome #house #dwellinghouse #corrugated #corrugatedmetal #metal #timber #shingle #cladding #landscape #kent

On Site: CatCost A redundant agricultural barn, once home to seven grain silos has been overhauled to create a contemporary family home with a unique multi levelled plan. Sat within a patchwork of agricultural landscape the existing concrete portal framed building was originally converted under Class Q of permitted development rights. Our proposals to transform this humble building takes its reference from the historic occupation of the barn. The existing cylindrical form of the internal grain silos along with their corresponding pockets of inverted spaces build on and evoke a building of agriculture and industry. The floor plan is divided on an acute axis, that is split by a large cylindrical double height space, which will play host to the primary dining and entertaining functions to the south. A lofty living room and a series of functionally servant spaces occupy the northern part of the proposed conversion. The first floor is accessed via a cantilevered steel staircase that wraps itself around one of the retained grain silos. Here the principal en-suite bedroom is joined by three additional bedrooms and two bathrooms. A series of double height spaces bisect the plan taking advantage of the barn’s industrial volume. These spaces make for a visually engaging circulation experience at first floor, with well connected lines of sight and opportunities for social interaction. The project is currently on site and we will be monitoring how this develops over the coming year, in particular how the bold spatial concept sits alongside the rugged agricultural character denoting the buildings humble beginnings. . . 54_NSAG Barn Conversion_2018 - 2020 . . . . . . #taylorharearchitects #catcost #barnconversion #conversion #imagery #architecture #archdaily #modernhouse #designboom #design #planning #classq #onsite #barn #redevelopment #houseplan #agricultural #dwellinghouse #concrete #silo #corrugated-metal #landscape #kent

Available within the new content you can find some of our more complex projects such as: Calleywell Lane, 33 new homes in the village of Aldington; Highland House, a 65 unit care facility near Canterbury; Manor Farm, visionary Brewery within a diversified farmstead in Wateringbury. . . 20_THA Website Updates_2020 . . . . . #taylorharearchitects #website #design #rural #studio #kent #drawing #modelmaking #visuals #sketches #collage #materials #render #conservation #newbuild #refurbishment #masterplanning #interiordesign #architects #architecturestudents #heritage #country #planning

Housing: Calleywell Lane 33 homes distinguished by three distinct character areas that collectively form a unique development on the fringes of the Kent Downs AONB. A new development of individual homes, derived out of a thorough understanding of its place, one where buildings carefully knit themselves into their surroundings with the feeling of having been there for some time. . Our proposals for a series of new dwellings appropriate themselves to the scale and context of the village in which they sit and build on the principles and language of a cluster of housing typologies, each with its own identity, each focused on creating a distinct connection to the surrounding landscape via a diverse collection of outside spaces. . Each cluster aims to provide carefully considered, well designed and adaptable homes, all constructed from long lasting, quality materials. . The site conditions have heavily informed each building type, from a cluster of steeply pitched brick terraced houses to low lying courtyard dwellings, part enclosed by walled gardens. . The layout is driven by an attitude towards allowing the landscape to inform each building footprint (rather than the architecture dictating the landscape), and how these then define the moments between buildings. . . . 10_CLTG Housing_2019 - 2021 . .
