Design Proposals | We are currently exploring #proposals to #extend & reconfigure an 1960’s detached property in #cambridge, CB1 ⭐️ This proposal includes a two-storey rear extension with an asymmetrical roof form to maximise the south-facing roof slope for a solar panel array ☀️ At ground floor the overhang of the projecting green roof helps to limit solar gain & the splayed plan encourages indoor/outdoor living & dining extending out onto the rear terrace.

Externally the contemporary additions are clad with mixed red, bronze & purple clay arrowhead tiles, which complement the tones of the existing brickwork & provide a warm, textured material quality 🧡 #designproposal #renovation #MOOi

Client Feedback | ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
‘MOOi have been instrumental in the entire process of the design and construction of our new home … professional, dedicated, resourceful and friendly. They care deeply about how their design fits in with the lifestyle and needs of our family. Their attention to detail and strive for energy efficiency are commendable. We would highly recommend MOOi Architecture.’

We’re delighted with this review and another #fivestar rating from our #cambridge clients after we worked together with them to design and build their new home, packed full of #eco features and contemporary design detailing. MOOi managed the process from initial scoping to finalised design ideas, through planning approval and building regulations approval, to contractor and landscaper coordination, project management and regular site visits to a completed family home.

Design Proposals | We love exploring the sectional relationship of our proposals, either to test or convey a conceptual idea at an early design stage 🧡

This project includes a part single-storey, part two-storey extension for a #victorian property in central #Cambridge.

The proposals feature a double height void which funnels natural light down into a new open plan kitchen/dining area at ground floor, as well as providing natural light into a new bedroom suite at first floor above. This solution maximises natural light and maintains privacy for adjacent gardens & buildings in a dense urban location ⭐️

Design detail | Our new build property in #cambridge is nearing completion with the vertical slatted screen for the bespoke #oak stair now installed ⭐️ The feature screen extends between basement, ground and first floor levels. This provides a focal point + material consistency that adds warmth and texture to compliment the #porcelain tiles and #herringbone flooring.

The property is controlled by a fantastic smart home system from 🧡 Allowing for the seamless control of all aspects of the highly complex M&E installation in this property!

Client Feedback | ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
‘MOOi were great at designing and managing our big build and refurbishment. The design ideas were clever, stylish and reflected our requirements and requests well. They have translated into an elegant modern home. MOOi were also good at managing the build and dealing with our builders. I would unreservedly recommend MOOi and use them again.’

Client Feedback | ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ‘Working with MOOi Architecture enabled us to achieve our dream home. MOOi guided us through the process from:
– translating our ideas and concepts into an exciting and creative proposal,
– navigating complex planning restrictions (we live in a conservation area),
– working practically through trade-offs and carefully remaining focussed on our priorities, managing cost and retaining a focus on the overarching goals,
– managing the tender process and recommending an excellent cross section of builders and tradespeople,
– leading us through the project alongside the builder. Solving issues and maintaining a great working relationship across the team through the process,
– identifying opportunities as we’ve gone through the build to inject great creative ideas that maximise the project’

Design Proposals | Interior view of our proposal to extend & reconfigure a #victorian property in central Cambridge ⭐️ With the use of a modular electrically opening roof light on the side return and a timber slatted screen, it allows for the living room area to be naturally lit and ventilated, whilst still maintaining a sense of separation between the different functions of this open plan layout #Architects #Cambridge
