What are we working on

The completion of two larger projects on Histon Road and Mill Road earlier in the year has allowed us to nurture a number of small scale projects, which by no means are less challenging. Our attention to detail is just as critical and has required an altogether Herculean amount of patience and understanding from our clients, as we make steady progress through the various hoops and hurdles of the planning system. Seeking builders that have the skills with a similar outlook to small project demands has also revealed other design avenues for this scale of project.

As we draw closer to this years end, two of these small projects are due to start on site.

Pegg's Cottage is a Grade II Listed building with 20th Century additions. Having considered and dismissed a number of alternative houses and locations, our clients who requested our opinion on design and layout opportunities 'pre-purchase', will shortly commence works to extend an existing breakfast/dining room and remodel the first floor accommodation. New contemporary glazed additions will be complemented by repurposing existing field flint walling to make a stronger connection with the secluded garden.

Ferry Path will also commence some enabling works initially, before getting under way early next year.

The need for improved living space does not only apply to old properties. We are currently pursuing two intervention projects that look to redress the balance of inadequate living space, now common place with new houses. More about those shortly…

CDCA Awards Shortlisting

Our project 'Nelson Court' has been shortlisted for 'Best New (small) Building' in the Cambridge Design and Construction Awards! It's exciting times and very encouraging for our young practice to be recognised locally for the quality of work and approach. Shortlisted works will be presented on the 13th March at a special event organised by Cambridge City Council and the CFCI.

Swavesey receives planning approval

Pleased to announce the approval of two new homes. The designs explore ideas about developing within an established village location, while evolving a well known building typology. The project we've nick-named 'Rural Evolution' draws upon the site's context and surrounding buildings to devise a design narrative based around familiar rural forms specific to the site and it's location. Orientation and massing were a key factor behind the design. Rural Evolution in Swavesey, Cambridge by studio24 architects

New website

Welcome to the new website, which we hope you will like. We've produced it ourselves with a little help from Ben Chattell! The studio is approaching it's fifth year and has worked on some great projects. Some of those are now being constructed on site and we're anticipating new planning approvals in the next few weeks having developed some new ideas.
If you can't find an example of work or building type that you are thinking about or want to chat about an idea you have for a project, please drop us a line!
