Eco Home | Fantastic progress at our new build #ecohome project in #cambridge, in collaboration with contractors Offord & Camp ⭐️ The #basement structure is now complete and ready for the internal tanking system. We couldn’t help but stop to admire the exposed #concrete and #steel at this stage, particularly the view towards the walk on roof light, which will provide a flood of natural light into this basement guest bedroom/study area. Elsewhere, the SIPs timber frame above is mostly complete and the first fix M&E installation is well underway. More to follow as this exciting project progresses on site … ⭐️ #instaarchitecture #underconstruction #sipsbuild #onsite #MOOi

Dining Room View | An enticing view from the dark monochromatic living room into the bright dining space at our project in this characterful #Victorian renovation in central #Cambridge 🧡 We love exploring the treatment of spaces, particularly if serving different functions and used at different times of day. We find this can help to emphasise the qualities of a space and also evoke differences in mood, as well as improve wellbeing. Characterful #Victorian properties, such as this one, are always a joy to work with! 📷 @msap_photo #victorianrenovation #diningroom #architecture #design #MOOi

Victorian Renovation | Our proposals to extend a large, detached #victorian property in #cambridge are complete ⭐️ The scheme responds to the southern aspect at the rear and the desire to create a stronger visual and physical connection with the Client’s established garden. As a result, we have proposed a two-storey side extension, with large expanses of glazing being set back from the rear building line, therefore providing solar shading from the overhang of the balcony and roof projection above. The proposed materials include slim “Roman” #brickwork as a contemporary interpretation of the existing Gault brickwork and feature column in MOOi Orange 🧡#designproposal #victorianrenovation #architects #cambridge #MOOi

We are enjoying exploring proposals to extend and reconfigure a #victorian property in central #cambridge ⭐️ The proposals are a response to the west facing rear elevation, with a projecting canopy to limit solar gain and an extended south facing roof slope for a PV array which will combine with a new Air Source Heat Pump installation ☀️ This bold option explores using a charred #larch and cedar batten cladding, alongside pink and green accents! #instaarchitecture #archigram #designproposal #MOOi

Sapphire House Feature | Thanks for the feature @homeinspireuk ⭐️

Posted @withregram • @homeinspireuk What do you think of this contemporary two-storey extension to this family home?⁠
📍North Cambridge⁠

MOOi were approached by the owners of this property to provide more space at ground floor for their young family and two additional bedrooms; a guest room for elderly relatives at ground floor and a new master bedroom suite at first floor.⁠

The solution rationalises and zones areas at ground floor and improves the relationship and flow between the various spaces. The open plan kitchen / dining / snug area at the rear becomes the main focus of the home, whilst other more functional areas such as the Utility and Cloakroom have been internalised and positioned at the side of the property, not only for the practicalities of services / drainage, but also to maintain and improve secondary access into property.⁠

At first floor the existing layout was reconfigured to provide access to a fourth bedroom at the rear, featuring a vaulted ceiling, en-suite and a walk in wardrobe with bespoke joinery.⁠

Externally the proposals seek to rationalise and combine the rear additions into a singular modest, yet contemporary gesture, finished in blue render at ground floor and open jointed cedar cladding at first floor.⁠
