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.

Building on our successful start to 2023, January brings another planning permission for a large extension and remodelling of this rural property in Hampshire.

This Eclectic style extension has been designed as a modern twist to the original house that harmonises with the existing forms and massing, providing well crafted architectural details and interest. The design focuses on the provision of a new larger kitchen and family hub space that feeds into the rest of the house. A new two storey front entrance has also been designed to create a focal point to the principal facade.

The new principal bedroom suite includes a large window seat with day bed that looks out over the rolling Hampshire countryside.

Our first working day of the new year has yielded planning approval for the extension and remodelling of a detached property in Hampshire.

The designs give the property a contemporary twist in a modern Eclecticism, bringing flexible modern family living.

The permission also includes an array of PV panels to improve the property's energy performance and running costs.

An early Christmas present has come in from Winchester City council for one of our client. We are happy to have received planning approval for this small contemporary extension and garden studio in Winchester.

The project involves internal alterations, rear and attic extensions, and a separate garden studio to the rear of the property on this urban house to provide modern family living.

The extension and garden studio have been designed to have a contemporary form which is clad in zinc for a clean modern aesthetic.

The works will provide a more logical layout and larger amenity space for a growing family to enjoy their property and allow private home working.
