National Star College Appointment
coombes:everitt architects have been appointed to work with the National Star College to develop a new supported living residential scheme. In addition to providing specialist a mix of residential accommodation the low impact scheme will provide a community building for the use of local residents.
Work Progresses Despite Weather
Despite the bad weather, work is progressing a on a number of projects including a luxury contemporary
dwelling on the Cotswold escarpment overlooking Cheltenham. The property
has been designed to relate to the topography of the site and to
reflect the natural materials found around the site. The developer is
hoping to complete this project by spring of this year.
Planning Approval for Royal British Legion
The former Royal British Legion building in Cheltenham is now on the market with Chesterton Humbert Estate Agents following receipt of planning in late 2012 to provide 6 new dwellings. The scheme includes the conversion of the original building into a 3 bedroom house and 2 apartments and a new build block housing 3no. 2 bedroom apartments. For further details give us a call.
Rural Diversification to Provide New Wedding Venue
Working with McLoughlin Planning, planning has now been submitted for a high-quality wedding venue in the heart of the Cotswolds. The scheme is based around a series of historic Cotswold Barns and will ensure the long term viability of the existing farm as well providing much needed employment opportunities.
Office Conversion Nearing Completion
The first stage of the conversion at 21 The Promenade is now complete with the external decorations and roof works complete to allow the scaffolding to come down prior to Christmas 2012. The scheme to convert former office space into 7 apartments is well under way with a completion due for the end of February 2013. Bathroom pods and sleeping decks have been used in the larger rooms to retain the historical character of the original building rather than introducing partitions which will subdivide the space.
Major Extension of Cotswolds Farm House
We are pleased to have obtained planning permission for the extension and refurbishment of a large Cotswold farmhouse in the outskirts of the Cheltenham. The scheme includes 2 large extensions and opening up the ground floor to provide a contemporary kitchen, living and day room. It will also include the reconstruction of former stables to provide a garage and utility rooms with a glazed link to the main house. An existing hay barn will also then be converted to a new ancillary cottage within the stable yard.
