Drawing: Development plan sketch of 1 of 5 new dwellings set within both a Conservation Area and AONB. . . Conceived as an L-shaped plan with sleeping spaces to the north and living spaces to the south that encloses a modest but thoughtful courtyard garden. The concept was to retain and acknowledge the simple shape of the original agricultural buildings (to be demolished), yet create a new typology of enclosure associated with vernacular clusters, one that permits subtle visual and physical connections to the wider landscape. . . Building form and materiality are derived from an as found language of local corrugated and blackened timber redundant agricultural buildings, whilst simple pitched roofs that bear onto internally exposed masonry walls create courts and yards that define an external landscape. . . . 43_BS Housing_2018/2021 . . . . . #taylorharearchitects #reconfiguration #design #drawingmatter #handsketch #courtyard #landscape #garden #enclosure #farmstead #interiordesign #architecture #conservation #modernhouse #composition #lshape #court #yardhouse #yard #proportion #timber #corrugated #masonry #agricultural #kent

Elevation study for the reconfiguration and extension of an Arts & Crafts period property set within a coastal Conservation Area, that has recently gained full planning permission. . . The proposals encompasses a complete reconfiguration of the buildings internal volumes and a transformation of the visual and physical connections with the surrounding coastal landscape. . . Externally the building maintains a traditional overcoat, in an effort to retain part of its original Arts & Craft form and character. Where a new addition is added these walls are clad in washed timber and stippled render evoking a material richness and texture to the external facade. Stepping down to the garden a hint of change stems from the newly reconfigured and expanded multi-tiered terrace, which contains a series of outdoor spaces that bring the landscape closer to the house. . .

1:100 card model of an ensemble of ‘Hoppers Huts’ that form part of a wider proposal for the rejuvenation of an historic farmstead and estate in the heart of the metropolitan green belt of Wateringbury. . . The series of brick structures are an evolution of the traditional hoppers hut, each encompassing an enclosed private courtyard, and characterized by their elongated roof profile and extruded brick chimneys. . . These modest buildings evoke a sense of domesticity within an agricultural setting as they sit alongside a wider collection of listed farm buildings, together with a new state of the art brewery, which reflects and references the hop growing, picking and beer production industry that this region of Kent is renowned for. . . . 35_MF Historic Masterplan_2018/2021 . . . . . #taylorharearchitects #model #modelmaking #cardmodel #design #designthroughmaking #thoughtprocess #process #courtyard #regeneration #remodelling #brewery #hoppershut #architecture #masterplan #conservation #hops #hut #farm #estatemanagement #legacy #brick #listedbuilding #wateringbury #kent

Site Model: 1:200 card model for a careful, imaginative and sensitive re-development of a series of redundant agricultural buildings to comprise of 5 individual dwellings and bespoke workshop facility set within a Conservation Area and AONB. . . Models are an integral part of how we as a practice design. They are used as both a tool for generating healthy discourse but also as a visual aid for communicating our ideas. What we find interesting about making models as part of the design process is that they allow for pleasant mistakes to happen which often lead to enriching an idea or giving one greater focus. Through modeling each of our projects we capture key moments, that enable our clients and collaborators to clearly visualise and understand a project as a design begins to take shape. . . This particular model is a third iteration of an earlier test model that was then refined for the purposes of a community public presentation. . . . 43_BS Re-development_2017/2021 . . . . . #taylorharearchitects #model #modelmaking #cardmodel #design #designthroughmaking #thoughtprocess #proces #studio #regeneration #remodeling #residential #workshop #architecture #testing #ideas #workinprogress

Design Development: Early sketch and axonometric for a complete renovation and extension of a terraced house by the sea. . . Sketches are an integral part of the design process and are synonymous with how we work as a practice. They are a direct way of illustrating ones thoughts, achieving a design direction, or a wonderful tool for asking questions of both ourselves and our clients. They have a habit of being both good and bad but no sketch is ever a wasted exercise, there always a means to finding an answer elsewhere. . . . 38_CR Residence_2018/2020 . . . . . #taylorharearchitects #sketch #sketching #handsketch #penonpaper #process #design #extension #remodelling #residential #studio #markmaking #dontmoveimprove #architecture #workinprogress
