Extensions

CBBA are a family run architect practice that have completed hundreds of extension projects transforming family life for many

Renovation, remodeling or extending your home can be an exciting but daunting task. Should you go direct to the builder? Or do you need an architect? If you are thinking of changing the layout or extending the property then you should probably at least speak to one. An architect can help you not only navigate the journey more smoothly, but also ensure that you achieve the best possible version of your dream home.  Architects apply impartial and creative thinking to projects large and small. They add value, whether from maximising light and space, adding functionality, or achieving the best return on your biggest investment, your home.  
"A good architect actually pays for themselves - more than once. You will reap the reward and the building will be hugely better and deliver much better value for it." Kevin McCloud, Grand Designs

Barns

Whether it is a new build barn, converted listed or class Q barn we have experience in all

If you are looking to start your barn home project then you have come to the right place.  We are national award winning barn architects and have designed barns of all architectural styles.  As a practice we love working with these structures as they convert wonderfully into homes. Barns give such amazing opportunity to create double height or vaulted spaces with lots of light and character.  In our previous designs we have exposed steel and timber structures and created amazing industrial contemporary or traditional interiors to suit the building, context and our clients brief.
“For our award winning LABC listed barn project we  combined the perfect mix of new and old.  It is not often an old barn is wheelchair friendly, functional, fun, high end and sustainable“ Grant Cameron

Heritage

Building the future and restoring the past

Heritage & Conservation

CBBA have extensive experience with heritage buildings and listed period properties . Our knowledge has come through many years of working on historic buildings all across the UK. Prior to working for CBBA our directors have been involved in many prestigious heritage projects across central London and Cambridge. Our designs at CBBA always treat the heritage asset as protagonist and aim to enhance the historic building and remove where possible any features which impact negatively. As a practice we relish the opportunity to work with these historic buildings and develop them sensitively so they are maintained and can be enjoyed for years to come. We would welcome the opportunity to visit your own piece of English heritage and help you to preserve our beautiful history.
