Christmas Gifts

Clare went on maternity leave at the end of November and has produced Eva, a sister for Tom. She hopes to be back at her desk in the summer.

Clare has also received another present. Her work on Grade II* listed Narrowgate House, Alnwick which is on Historic England’s At Risk Register has received planning approvals. The building is to be converted to 5 residential units with a creperie in the basement. Approval has also been granted for 3 new houses in the grounds.

We have also received consents for works on two Grade II listed properties: the tiny fishing Shiel at Spittal near Berwick which is to become a bunk house and cafe; and Murton Farmhouse, North Shields which will be converted to two dwellings.

Though I started my working life in London my family roots are here in the North-East – ‘this corner of the earth has a smile for me above all other places.’ Returning to join the practice in 1974, I have tried to develop an understanding of the region’s traditional built environment, particularly of it’s rural communities as a context for a contemporary design response. Repeated commissions and recommendation seem to suggest a reputation for continuing quality output.
