House Extension & Remodelling, Dorchester

We are pleased to announce that James Grayley Architects has been appointed to substantially remodel, extend and retrofit a 1960s house in Broadmayne, Dorchester. Our proposal deliberately rejects demolishing the original house, instead responding to its problems and making a series of strategic interventions to upgrade the existing building fabric to create a contemporary sustainable home. Our proposals will reunite the interior of the house with its garden, and resituate the house in the wider context of the local vernacular.

Competition Win, Dorset

We are pleased to announce that we have won the design competition for a new-build house on the bank of the River Frome. Our design was judged overall winner and will now be developed towards construction. The house is made predominantly from an in-situ concrete, which has a softened surface brought about by the use of an Ashlar Stone aggregate produced on site using reclaimed stone from the riverbed. The form of the house responds to the topography, sun path and views from within the site and is conceived from the landscape within which it will sit. The house provides a permanent home for two artists and their families.
