We love this enticing view from the entrance hallway into the new extended areas at our CB3 project 🤩 The rear addition is stepped in plan to create a sheltered external #courtyard, yet maintain a link between the living room, library and kitchen/dining areas! We’re so excited to see the kitchen by @tomaskitchens installed in the coming weeks 🧡 Fantastic work on site as always by Main Contractor Adams & Newman #MOOi #Architecture #Cambridge

With Autumn well underway we’re throwing back to this opulent, family living room in our central #cambridge residential #refurb project – it’s just made for hibernating! Bold @farrowandball #downpipe walls are a statement choice in this #victorian property 🖤 #tbt #farrowandball #farrowandballdownpipe #instainteriors #interiorarchitecture #MOOi

Let there be light ☀️! This narrow slot roof light on this project is supercharged with a horizontal strip of mirror directly above the gorgeous exposed brickwork! Adding mirror or a feature colour to a roof light or window reveal is a great way to manipulate light and add some character to transform a space 🧡 #MOOi #Architecture #Cambridge

Happy Halloween 🎃! The mini MOOi’s have had great fun incorporating #lego into their #pumpkin this year! Now just to find a builder to bring this to reality … 😜 #MOOi #architecture #halloween #homeinspo

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

Our project in Newnham, Cambridge with its dramatic funnelled ceiling, #tadelakt chimney breast and @barbasbellfires #fireplace creates the perfect social spot for the Autumn weather drawing in! We love the muted natural tones of this room complemented by the brushed oak #herringbone floor, @littlegreenepaintcompany decorating and the “Crittall inspired” @iqglass doors ⭐️ 📸 by @jeanluc.benazet / Architects: @mooiarchitecture / Contractor: @the_danielsgroup #archigram #architects #MOOi

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.⁠
