Project Orange in Suffolk

James and Christopher have had a home in Lavenham, Suffolk, since 1999. They soon had the good fortune to acquire a site in the medieval centre of the village and in 2006 completed their own new-build house. Since establishing this base they have worked on a number of nearby projects that celebrate the rich heritage of the county whilst meeting the twenty-first century concerns of the contemporary client.

Our experience

A number of the Suffolk projects respond to historic site conditions, such as Orange Cottage, Old Corner House and West Stow Lodge, whereas others are more overtly contemporary. Crystal Palace, for example, demanded a very different approach.

The house at Thorpeness is an essay in refurbishment and playful decoration – a response to the unique charm of this coastal holiday village, while The Swan Hotel in Southwold is an ambitious project to remodel and reinvent this venerable institution as the fabulous flagship of the Adnams brand.
