Current Project

The Gatekeepers is a project that looks as if it’s been taken straight from the pages of J. R. Tolkien. The 3 bedroom house is looking to become a masterpiece as it nears completion, the client had this to say about the cottage: ‘I wondered if I could delve into the mists of Manx folklore of giants throwing rocks at each other by designing a completely new Gatekeeper’s Cottage that might have been made by a pair of giants as a play-house for their boisterous children’.
