Passivhaus – Dundon, Somerset

Graham Bizley of Prewett Bizley Architects he has kindly given Allwood access to photos taken of the home that we helped to construct for him in Somerset.

Graham had the enviable task of being able to not only design this building, but live in the end result as his family home. Although the pressure of designing your own home comes with its own challenges, I’m sure all will agree the finished home is stunning.

St Michaels Hotel, Falmouth

Recently visited St. Michaels Hotel, Falmouth to check on progress of the first phase of the redevelopment of the existing site.

On the last visit to this project I was stood on tip toes in the empty old jacuzzi, with a torch and a tape measure to determine the make-up of the existing steel structure to support our new frame above. I am please to say the now finished health club is a far cry from my previous experience!

Although our part of the overall redevelopment was purely the two storey extension over the existing swimming pool, it was great to see the finished result and take in the fantastic views.
