New art studio and external landscaping


Braughing, Hertfordshire


1,720sq.ft development



A new purpose-built art studio allows a community-spirited couple to deliver private tuition and host exhibitions on the site of their rural Hertfordshire home.

New World Architectural has helped to create a light, airy and inspirational location for creative works where regular charity events can be comfortably held.

The studio was built using a combination of timber and oak frame. It started as a bag of ideas by the client and was completed with a collaborative approach which shaped the final design.

Services provided:

  • Co-ordination of the timber frame design
  • Completion of planning documents and technical drawings
  • Project management from start to finish

We did have quite a few ideas and photos of what we wanted for a separate studio in our garden and Neil managed skilfully to translate them into drawings and detailed plans. His local knowledge of planning regulations and what we would be allowed to build was invaluable and saved so much time in having the plans approved. The team’s hard work meant they sailed through without objection.
