2018 Architecture Awards

Build 2018 Architecture Awards 10 Best Architectural Design Company 2018 - Hampshire Alresford Design & Build is a creative architectural design specialist. We invited Senior Design Consultant Gary White to tell us more about the firm and the range of projects it undertakes. This approach has been successful, and today the firm boasts a wide range of projects whose outcomes have met the clients’ needs and exceeded their expectations. Gary shares an example of one such success story and explores how he combined his expertise with the requirements of the client to create a truly unique outcome. “My latest project was to provide a house buyer with a contemporized and highly sustainable approach to an existing late 80’s early 90’s property set in 16 acres of outstanding Hampshire countryside. The owners brief was to provide a sustainable home whilst exploring the contemporary design options available to the existing structure and its setting within the countryside. This has been achieved by major internal structural alterations, obtaining planning approval to for a two storey fully glazed gabled entrance central to the front elevations, with a new internal enclosed spiral staircase adding architectural interest and a focal point to the property when entering. “The wonderful views across the upper Bighton Forestry Belt of Hampshire can be seen from deep within the property especially from the first-floor gallery landing overlooking the spiral staircase. The low emissive glazing to the entrance and the rest of the property will reflect the surrounding countryside when approached from the outside. Sustainability is achieved by installing a Ground Source Heat pump, Roof mounted Solar Hot Water Panels and Photovoltaic Panels to the South facing rear of the property.” Ultimately, Alresford Design & Build has achieved incredible success over recent years, and going forward Gary and his team will focus on continuing to develop their service offering to ensure the firm’s ongoing growth and success. “Moving forward, my focus is on continuing to learn about the design- build market to enhance my knowledge, which will help me to utilise new technologies, explore greater design opportunities, continue to maintain a person service and to create valuable living spaces for my future clients.” ounded on providing a personal high-level service for the residential house market, Alresford Design & Build offers a range of design, planning and building solutions to meet the needs of its valued clients. Gary shares the firm mission and how he works to achieve this. “Here at Alresford Design & Build, our mission is to provide a high standard of service. I find this is achieved by having a technical construction background and providing a personal service to my clients. I draw on this to support every client, and begin each project by listening carefully to the client’s brief, and then utilising my experience to advise them on the opportunities that they may not be aware of. I then work hard on the designs and utilise my knowledge to approach the constraints and opportunities that we are confronted with throughout a project.” F AR180037 Company: Alresford Design & Build Contact: Gary White Address: 1A Bakehouse Yard, West Street, Alresford, Hants SO24 9AU.
