After 10 years of dedication to the technical detail of projects at Witcher Crawford, Mike Benford is finally hanging up his set square as his retires from the architectural profession. It is with our greatest thanks and appreciation that we wish Mike a long and happy retirement.

Born a year after the end of the WWII, Mike has worked for a number of prestigious architectural practices in Hampshire, but he saved the best for last when joining Witcher Crawford in 2012. Our relationship goes back over twenty years when working with Mike at a previous practice. His immaculately hand drawn details and elegant handwriting were well regarded by consultants and contractors alike.

Mike has been an inspiration, mentor, fount of all knowledge and all round technical guru at Witcher Crawford and many staff past and present have benefited from his wealth of experience.

His calm and friendly demeanour will be sorely missed, and we wish him all the best in his retirement.

Thank you Mike and don’t forget to pop by for some tea and cake from time to time.

This project involved extensive remodelling and extensions to a post war detached house, more than doubling the size of the property. This was a challenging brief due to site restrictions, in particular numerous mature trees in close proximity. The house is designed in a modern Arts and Crafts style, with creasing tiles and stone details used throughout. Large metal framed glazing was crucial to the design in order to flood the deep floor plan with natural light and open the house up to the mature garden.

This newly completed extension has seen Witcher Crawford return to a property where we had created a basement extension more than a decade earlier. Charged with designing a two storey extension over the top of our previous work, we set to make the property more functional for modern family living. Harnessing natural light was a big part of the design with light passages dropping through the extension, with an impressive glass floor to the living room.

The new extension brings contemporary spaces to this Georgian terraced property.

We are very pleased to announce the granting of Planning Approval and Listed Building Consent for the extension and alteration of a Grade II Listed Barn.

The project creates much needed alterations and an extension that will provide a functional home tailored to the specific needs of the disabled resident. The works are sensitive to the listed structure, and the extension has been designed to carry through the language of the barn.

The remodelling and extension of this elegant country house near the south coast in Hampshire has allowed us to created some fantastic spaces for modern family living. The new orangery provides a great family hub, with the new cinema having become their favourite space. The property also includes a new feature staircase, gym and part subterranean garage. We are just waiting for sun to appear so that we can share external images of the house and landscaping.

We are delighted to have been granted planning approval for the extension and full refurbishment of this Edwardian house in Southampton. Following some poor modernisation in the late 1980’s the property has been left empty for the past 20 years.

Witcher Crawford will restore the lost Edwardian Architecture details whist adding a modern Edwardian extension to the rear of this sloping site.

It has been a busy few months for Witcher Crawford with a number of our projects being completed on site or in the main throws of construction. We have also had a number of exciting architectural projects submitted for planning, in Hampshire, Sussex and Devon.
