Simon Knight Architects

We were commissioned by Catton Homes to design a high quality development acting as a gateway to Harpenden from Lower Luton Road, Batford. The proposed site will compliment not just the historic surrounding context but also the new school buildings opposite. It will replace an ugly and introverted industrial building and enhance this important corner.

Bowji Residential



We were commissioned by a private client to design a new build house for them and their family down in Cornwall. The house sits on an empty plot in the village of Trebetherick and has fantastic views out across the neighbouring fields and easy access to the beautiful Daymer Bay beach.

Lubenham Hill Home Extension

The Client approached us after purchasing the property and wanting to modernise the interior and crucially replace three separate existing extensions, which were inefficient and not cohesive in their design. The house also had a bad good connection to the garden, with a WC and utility space blocking access and views.
