Sustainable Architectural Design
Proposed New Parish Community Hall, Pembury, Tunbridge Wells.
Construction work due to start on a new crafts barn. A new replacement building set in the heart of the Sussex countryside. Forming a courtyard with the existing buildings, its proposed use with its cathedral roof is as a crafts facility.
An extension to a large detached house in Sevenoaks has been granted planning permission. This single storey sleek contemporary rear extension extends the dining room and kitchen. Removal of some of the original internal walls will form a large space made more flexible by the inclusion of a siding pocket wall.
Application for three apartment blocks submitted to local planning authority for planning approval on behalf of a housing association. Three blocks set in a park-like environment on the side of a steeply sloping site. The apartments will provide part private and part social provision.
Detached property in East Grinstead granted planning permission for two storey rear extension that incorporates a roof conversion.

Recent Project - Environmentally friendly building for The Guide Association
For this building we utilised energy saving solutions with environmentally friendly and people safe materials, especially and specifically designed by MG Architects.
The dormitory is orientated east to west to capture the early morning sun, and to avoid facing the cold north. Specially designed projecting eaves prevent the hottest summer sun from entering the building through the windows The large overhangs also provide weather protection to the walling.
The double bank of windows enable the the lower section to be closed off at night whilst retaining the upper ones (higher for security reasons) open for natural ventilation. The slope of the roof will assist with this natural flow across the dormitory. All the finishes are environmentally friendly and are safe and simple to re-apply.
The rainwater pipe is formed from a chain. This creates an interesting feature of a normally mundane part of a building.
