GP Architects’ workload encompasses a great variety of project types executed over a long period of time from domestic extensions and roof conversions to larger developments.

The projects illustrated below represent work carried out over the last 25 plus years.

 

 

   
 

Extensions and Private Homes

Designing and constructing private homes for individual clients is one of the most challenging areas to work in because each family lives in their own specific requirements. The smaller scale domestic extensions require an immense attention to detail, disproportionate to their size but just as important as the larger projects.

We understand that a house is also a home and what affect the correct home can have on both the people living in it and those that reside around it. Each residential project is therefore approached in a manner unique to its client and context with a view to producing the best result possible for all concerned.

We do not believe there is a standard solution; each project is skillfully designed and  interpreting the clients requirements into something physical and tangible that has a positive affect on the family lifestyle.

Extensions and private homes have been constructed in London, St Lo in France and in several towns in Cyprus.

Commercial Work

     
 

We understand the needs of the small business man and we have worked with a number of local restauranteurs, grocers, mechanics to produce restaurants, grocery stores, garages, commercial offices unique to their individual requirements. In many cases we advised on property acquisition and subsequently we united the adjoining property into one integrated establishment.

Many are still trading today as originally designed.

Hotel Renovations and Refurbishments

We have extensive experience of refurbishing or converting and extending existing buildings.

Working with the smaller, family run hotels over an extended period, GP Architects have built up an impressive portfolio of completed hotel projects. A great number of the hotels in and around Sussex Gardens in Paddington, and as far afield as Cwmbran and Criccieth in Wales were renovated.

Within very tight constraints, interiors were completely stripped out, walls realigned to provide en-suite facilities, courtyards in-filled, rear extensions and complete new mansard roofs constructed in some cases. New services, ceilings, lighting, wall finishes, floors and doors and new lifts serving every floor were incorporated. All to the satisfaction of English Heritage.

Our buildings demonstrate a thorough understanding of the smaller hotelier, excellent co-ordination and appropriate specification that are essential for the delivery of successful buildings.

Integrating new technology and lifestyle attributes into buildings that are sometimes hundreds of years old involves care and skill and we believe we have the correct experience and attention to detail to achieve the correct result.

Healthcare

In the last few years, from 2006-2010 (GP Architectural Services Ltd, a trading name of GP) was engaged by a London NHS Trust to refurbish their Mental Health Wards.

Some of those were later inspected by NHS London Inspectors and pronounced as “setting the yardstick for other Trusts to follow”.
