Fantastic opportunities to join a progressive and expanding Architectural and Interior Design studio. Please send information marked "job application" outlining your experience including examples of your work.
Building works are well underway to form a contemporary two storey extension to a property in Ufford, Suffolk.
The new addition will transform the internal layout, breathing new life back into the previous art gallery space and will make for a very unique and interesting family home, with a dramatic double height galleried landing.
The team recently took part in a learning and hands on session with the Anglia Lime Company finding out how the traditional building material can be applied in design.
Buildings constructed with lime and traditional materials have stood the test of time. Lime has been used in construction since the 4th Century BC; and typical examples include buildings from Ancient Roman and Greek Empires to timber-framed cottages in the English countryside.
The use of lime in construction can be applied to renovation and new build projects and varies from mortar joints for brickwork where it provides a softer, flexible material to protect the bricks along with plaster and render to provide a vapour permeable layer allowing moisture inside a building to escape.
The session ended with the team being able to try their hand at traditional lathe and plaster application. If you have any queries about using lime or any material as part of your design aspirations please get in touch.
Well done to Glen and Angus of Plaice who competed in yesterdays Woodbridge 10k run, fantastic effort by all in challenging conditions.
Plaice (working alongside Planning Direct) have recently submitted outline proposals to create a new sustainable community near Woodbridge in Suffolk. The new homes will be an exemplar in energy efficient construction and design, all set within unique private recreational landscape.
We are pleased to announce Emily White and Angus Clogg have joined our team.
Emily joins us as an Architectural and Interior Designer and has gained over 4 years experience working with clients locally, in London and also producing conceptual designs for global companies.
Angus has arrived at Plaice having completed his Masters Degree in Architecture at Oxford Brookes University, having previously worked in a London practice prior to his studies.
Works have been progressing well on site to remodel and extend a Victorian property in Woodbridge, Suffolk.
The building was made watertight, following the install of the feature three meter roof light and slimline sliding pivot doors in the open plan Kitchen area.
The new boundary walls are now complete, enclosing the courtyard space where a new braai is being constructed. Next stages are first fix electrics and plumbing along with commencement of internal finishes.
Great to see that works have begun for our latest project along Quay Street in Woodbridge.
Plaice Design are pleased to announce that Planning Approval has been granted for construction of three new buildings to replace and supplement facilities / services on offer at the Erasmus Foundation in Laxfield, Suffolk, a Spiritual Teaching and Healing Centre run under charity status.
The principle new building will house a large Meeting Room, Lobby / Display Foyer, Restaurant, Catering Kitchen, Toilets and first floor archive storage facilities. Two further independent buildings are also planned, the first a Library / Reading Room with small Kitchen and the second a Cart Lodge / Hayloft to provide machinery storage and for storage of animal feed.
The project was procured through our association / involvement with Community Action Suffolk who run a Pro Help initiative, assisting voluntary and charitable organisations in finding professional services in Suffolk. We have worked closely with the foundations building committee to develop the brief and designs through RIBA Work Stages 1,2 & 3. Our clients are currently seeking different funding streams to make the project a reality in 2018.
The site has been master-planned by the current guardians. Recent developments have seen the construction of a new Healing Clinic, the construction of The Peace Gardens within the walls of the Foundation and a Herb Garden. The land also acts as an Animal Sanctuary. The Centre is an outward looking organisation and encourages visitors to enjoy the gardens and wildlife through a series of open day events. This site lies in a rural environment at the edge of Laxfield’s physical boundary, its landscape characterised by agricultural Farm Land and open fields.
Plaice are pleased to announce that Planning approval has at long last been granted for a contemporary two storey extension to an existing property in Ufford, Suffolk.
The scheme was originally turned down at committee against officer recommendation, but consent was secured through the planning appeal process.
The new addition (although fairly modest in size) will transform the internal layout of the property, breathing new life back into this previous art gallery and will make for a very unique and interesting family home, with a dramatic double height galleried landing.
All being well work should begin on site early next year.
