latest News: Farmsteads on Hadrian’s Wall

Design work is underway to take buildings on two farmsteads into their next phases of life.

With Hadrian’s Wall footpath running through one farmstead, the new owners are wishing to provide a variety of tourist accommodation and associated facilities. We have already received from the local authority approval in principle for initial ideas.

Hadrian’s Wall footpath runs along the boundary of the other larger farmstead which has been with the same owners for many years. They have asked us to masterplan phased reuse of all unoccupied buildings, most of which will be residential.

I joined the practice in the 1980’s. It was known then as a practice of integrity and professionalism, creating quality designs through friendly personal service. What has changed? Workload is slightly different now, responding over the years to shifting economic conditions, new concerns about climate change and client expectations, but our underlying philosophy about the way we choose to work remains the same.
