  • YMCA, Wells Road
    This fine building was at risk until JIA designed a mixeduse conversion to create a wine bar, gym and 19 apartments. The scheme included the insertion of an atrium into the centre of the building, providing a dramatic, light filled entrance hall. The original brickwork was cleaned and three new stone-faced dormer windows were constructed, enlivening the side elevation.

  • New Garden Room
    Careful detailing was needed to satisfy planners, ensuring that the new extension maintained continuity with the existing period house. However, the client brief also requested a high specification of finish and performance. Timber windows and doors were designed to match fenestration patterns found on the house and the extension was constructed from rendered blockwork with stone sills and copings. The roof structure was constructed from timber I joists supplied from a sustainable source. The roof also contained a glazed lantern that was constructed from the latest thermally insulated aluminium roof light system. Internally, under floor heating was installed beneath a tiled floor finish and low energy LED lighting enabled efficiency savings as well as a variety of ambient lighting options.

  • House remodelling
    Set in an area of natural beauty with views across the Chew Valley, near Bristol, the client brief centred on a new living space with vaulted roof to create a contrast to the low ceilings of the existing bungalow to produce a brighter and more spacious dwelling. An open-plan living space, incorporating a designated living and dining area (plus a conservatory) were designed to transform the building.
