About the project

As a second phase development to the The Knoll project, we were commissioned to convert an out building that historically had been the centre for the local scouts and cubs. The out building is to be converted to provide ancillary accommodation to the main house for guests and family to stay on an occasional basis.

To create the spaces required, two of the existing trusses have been strengthened to allow the bottom ties to be removed to create head height to a raised level bedroom which has the integral garage located below. The remainder of the accommodation is full height to expose the timber trusses and create volume. Reflecting the location existing trusses, the external wall has been opened up and large panels of oak framed glass inserted to bring light into and views out of the interior. By carefully considering design choices, this project is being done under Permitted Development Rights which means the Client could start the refurbishment straight away.

"My wife and I had some vague ideas of what we wanted, however, the expertise, creativity, and knowledge provided by John Morris have transformed our brief into the vision of a dream home." 

- Richard Mitchell, Ealing

" It was the first time that we have used an architect and we found that the use of John's services was paid back both in terms of the savings that he was able to identify through excellent contacts and helpful advice as well as the added value for the house. It also helped us avoid making expensive mistakes through a piecemeal approach." 

- Martin & Lyndsey Done, Gunthorpe

"John Morris Architects was one of three architects we found on the internet. After a couple of meetings with each of them and John's initial concept design, we found it very easy to make our choice. I would recommend John Morris architects to anybody and would love to work with John on another job in the future." 

-Simon & Sharon Moss, Nottingham
