Bembridge New Build

Planning permission for a pair of semi-detached 2 storey houses had already been obtained when Elmstone Design were asked to design the roof structure by AM Faithfull and Sons; it soon became apparent that with some simple alterations to the existing floor layouts  and an structurally ngineered & designed roof that a third floor offering additional bedroom accommodation could be achieved within the same footprint and height. Elmstone Design LLP subsequently obtained Planning Permission for the alteration with an architecturally sensitive roof design so the additional volume is not apparent from the public road.

Quotes and Client Testimonials

"John Sutton is an architectural engineer – maybe a bit like Mr Spock mind-melds Frank Lloyd Wright. Deciding to hire John for what grew into a demo-rebuild of our small cottage in Ryde turned out to be pounds well-spent. We’re from the US (10 years in UK). It’s been challenging to re-learn work processes and the like in what is known here as a ‘self-build’ project. We had to trust the knowledge and judgment of a professional we hired entirely on reputation. What could go wrong? Well, it was a good decision: John as Elmstone Design took us through design and planning issues in a conservation area, gaining planning permission having listened closely to our needs whilst making the case for what is quite a change. We’re readying for next stages now. We like working with John and his work, but we’ll still make this review just 4 stars. Got to hold something til the end, don’t we?"- Yell Review 1
