Designcubed goes North!

This planning application is for the refurbishment, remodelling, & extension of an existing 60’s style detached dwelling within the Clifton Conservation Area of York.  The extensive alterations include reworking of the elevations including a single storey extension at the front of the property; relocation of the front entrance from the main facade to the side; raising of the roof to provide for an additional floor of accommodation; and a secure detached car port to the rear. The aim is to retain many of the design elements of the existing 60’s dwelling (footprint, window proportions, materials) whilst responding to features of the neighbouring period (and period style) properties (scale, proportion, roof pitch and prominent gables).

Rob Runs London Marathon!

We are very proud of Rob who completed the London Marathon today! Not only did he run in under 4 hours, he also ‘warmed up’ with the Manchester Marathon two weeks ago.

Rob ran both marathons raising money for the charity: Rhys Daniels Trust who funds ‘Home from Home’ accommodation for children’s hospitals across the UK.
