Guernsey Design Awards
February 8, 2018 /
We’re excited to share that four of our projects have been shortlisted for this year’s Guernsey Design Awards!
Le Mont Saint Farm
How would you bring a barn back to life? Designed by director Oliver Westgarth, Le Mont Saint Farm has been shortlisted for residential renovation/extension over 250k. Oliver took on the challenge of creating a new home for himself and his family and as a listed building it’s been through various phases of renovation spanning from 1657 to the Occupation. The design doesn’t follow the traditional barn conversion style, instead, it creates a nuanced modern building and framing the historical features to reflect its history.
What makes a great garden? Shortlisted for landscaping – small projects up to 250k, Charlotte Battery at Fort George was designed by CCD, with conservation surveyance work by Stuart Pearce. Following major works to the house, it was also deemed necessary to repair the 200-year-old gates and restore them as a prominent and inspiring feature to complement the garden.
Maison de la Falaise (design)
Have you ever wanted a house with a view? Maison de la Falaise is shortlisted for residential new build over 250k. Designed by CCD, Maison de la Falaise overlooks Herm and is built into a hollow quarried out of the cliff. The landscaping forms an important part of the design as it sits partly within a natural swimming pool and the home itself incorporates water, natural stone, timber and reed thatch.
Maison de la Falaise (landscaping)
How do you make sure your house sits comfortably in the landscape? Our designs for Maison de la Falaise have been shortlisted for landscaping – small project up to 250k. The landscaping was worked on by both Stephen Welch of Welch Landscape Design and Andrew Dyke from CCD. Collaborating together, they created an organic design with the aim to entwine the house and the landscape into one.
