Society finds out about the work of re:DSGN in Stoke St Gregory

Established in 2013, re:DSGN offers Somerset and the surrounding areas a fresh approach to architectural design.

Business partners Jason Keswick and Tom Hartley, both with degrees in architecture and extensive experience with a Dorset-based architects, now provide architectural design services from their offices located in a converted barn in Stoke St Gregory.

“We offer a no-nonsense approach to design, from simple practical extensions to one-off bespoke new build dwellings.”

re:DSGN can provide a range of services from initial sketch-schemes working closely with their clients to produce a project brief and design that meets their requirements, planning, listed building and permitted development applications.

They also develop these designs in to building control packages as well as working drawings providing a complete service from initial concept to commencement of construction.

Jason and Tom enjoy applying contemporary design principles to every day tasks. They understand the importance that good design can have when creating an individual project.

“Having grown up locally, we appreciate the importance of rural character and heritage but enjoy challenging traditional aesthetics where the project aims to create open plan space and lots of natural light.”

Some of their most challenging projects have been those where there is a clear contrast between the new and the old, especially where the brief limits the use of traditional design because of size or proportion.

re:DSGN have a good working relationship with planners, building inspectors and specialist design team members such as structural engineers, ecologists, sap assessors and planning consultants. They provide a free consultation and will be willing to discuss your project before quoting.

“We might characterise our work as ‘rural design with a contemporary twist’ but this isn’t the limit to our work. In essence we want to provide design solutions that meet the client’s brief, whether this is a traditional conversion, contemporary extension or a straw-bale new build. We will work with the client and local planners to achieve the best design.”
