Home designed by Shipston architect featuring on More 4
A HOUSE designed by a Shipston-based architect is featuring on a new series on More 4.
‘Building the Dream’, which airs tomorrow, follows the story of a family moving from Warwickshire to Wales.
Josh and Rhian Cooper, who used to live in Oxhill, near Shipston, approached Hayward Smart Architects, in New Street, for help when they bought a property in Aberdovey as they were familiar with their work locally.
The 1960s house was poorly built and unattractive and it soon became clear that the best and most cost-effective option would be to demolish it and replace it with a new one.
Director Martin Smart said it was an exciting project to work on.
“We’ve often sent information on our buildings to magazines but this is the first time we’ve featured on a TV programme,” he said.
“Hopefully it shows there must be something in the building that has sparked a bit of interest. Our point of view is we want the homeowners to be satisfied.”
Mr Cooper said it was their ‘forever’ home.
“They designed a home which not only meets those needs but which also sits sympathetically within its surrounding,” he said.
“The house works perfectly, with the living space making the most of the beautiful coastal views.”
