Witcher Crawford are delighted to receive Planning Permission for an impressive new-build property in rural Hampshire.

Nestled in a sensitive site adjacent to ancient woodland, the design demanded meticulous consideration of its context and the unique needs of our disabled client. The functionality of the planform, flow within the property, ease of use and access of all spaces was the starting point for creating this new home.

The resultant scheme is an interplay of utilitarian and contemporary domestic architecture, with a brickwork, zinc, and cedar material palette with large format glazing. In combination, this provides a high quality of light and low need for maintenance, whilst fitting with its sensitive rural setting. Detailing of cedar interspersed on the façade and a triangulated zinc porch add a contemporary quality to the overall design.

Within the heart of the design lies an open-plan layout, thoughtfully crafted to prioritize accessibility, and equipped with tailor-made facilities, including an X-Y hoist system and hydrotherapy pool. In addition, the proposal incorporates solar panels, amplifying its environmental credentials and sustainability.

Witcher Crawford are excited to share a proposal for a new signature canopy concept for the Phoenix Theatre, built from a network of tessellated triangular panels. The design seeks to generate interest in the front façade with a new energy that will elevate the theatre as a centrepiece in the community of Bordon.

Green triangular panels reflect the theatre site’s deep army history, formally part of Bordon and Longmoor Camp. The canopy form is inspired by themes of parasitic architecture that generates powerful visual interest from the striking triangular geometry imposed on the existing brick skin.

The works include external level changes and a new internal lift to improve accessibility for all. This is part of a broader initiative that involves roof maintenance, the installation of solar panels, and additional internal refurbishments which collectively contribute to securing the sustainability of the theatre for the years ahead.

We are very pleased to announce that we have received planning permission for this accessible hydrotherapy pool extension to a family home in Hampshire.

The design of this extension is centred around creating a comfortable and accessible space;  providing new hydrotherapy pool facilities and introducing an open plan configuration to the most active areas of the house which will improve manoeuvrability for wheelchair use.

The brick extension features a low pitch zinc roof and timber elements for a soft, contemporary appearance against the traditional detached house. New glazing with the use of timber louvres and deep overhangs will utilise Southern sunlight to provide quality of light to the new hydrotherapy space and into existing areas of the house. The extension will link to a newly landscaped garden to form a considered overall scheme which will be enjoyed by all the family.

We are delighted to share our most recent Planning Approval for our Lifetime Home on this rural National Park site. The proposal includes the alteration of an existing property with the addition of a larger modern extension to provide much needed and suitable accommodation for wheelchair use.

The new contemporary extension is designed with the influence of a modern barn structure that will utilise zinc and timber cladding. The scheme is enhanced by new native planting that form hedgerows and wildlife corridors allowing the proposals to harmonise with the wider countryside setting. The topography of the site presented us with an interesting challenge for an accessible home, but the combined architectural and landscape design will provide full accessibility around the site.

Internally the property will offer flexible living arrangements and a hydrotherapy pool as well as utilising specialist assistive technology to make the home as functional and enjoyable as possible.

Project: W1554

This project involved replacing the existing building with this new Arts and Crafts country house within the conservation area. The house preserves the open character and development pattern through high quality design and workmanship. The house offers expansive and traditional spaces with modern fittings and technologies.

The completed house is designed in a modern Arts and Crafts style, as the more traditional form is prevalent in the area. The roof covering was renewed with handmade clay tiles and the walls were rendered to successfully blend the old and new parts of the house. Brick, creasing tile, and stone details were used throughout. Large format metal framed glazing was used at the rear of the house to flood the deep floor plan with natural light and to integrate the house with the mature rear garden.
