THE DETAILS ///
BENCHMARK Architects is an architecture and design studio based in London and Ampthill. They are a passionate and personable team, alive with creative and commercial design solutions. They love architecture and design and enjoy working with people on projects to create, challenge and innovate.
Whilst they specialise in all things residential and hospitality, such as homes, apartments, hotels, students, private for rent, restaurants, bars and spas, they also have extensive experience with retail, offices and mixed-use developments. As much as they love designing and developing new-build “clean canvas” building projects, they also love rethinking, remodelling and refurbishing listed, heritage buildings and the unloved “ugly-monsters”.
Well Under Yew is a house extension project Benchmark completed in 2017 giving the house a new open plan kitchen and dining area and increasing the total downstairs floorspace. For the planning phase we utilised plan documents, sketches and renders to show the proposed changes to the house. We filmed the completed project on site showing the space and design features incorporated into the new extension.
