Sense of VR Space

 

 

At Sense of Space we are always looking for new ways to demonstrate schemes to our clients.  Using Virtual Reality we are able to put you directly into the spaces we create.

 

Our models on Sketchfab are being updated to be VR compatible and using a VR enabled mobile device the schemes can be viewed from a new and exciting perspective.

 

 

 

Public Consultation for School Extension

Arnold Academy in Barton-le-Clay will be hosting a Public Consultation for the scheme we have developed with them for a new sports hall and classrooms at their current site.

 

The Public Consultation will provide useful feedback for the upcoming planning application.  The sports hall and classrooms are due to be handed over to the school by September 2018.  To meet the programme the proposals are designed to make use of off-site construction methods.

Sports Facility wins Planning Approval

We have obtained Planning Approval for the redevelopment of existing playing fields on the A65 Coutances Way on behalf of Ilkley Town Football Club, Ilkley Harriers and Ilkley Grammar School.

 

The new development will include a state of the art 3G all-weather football pitch and compact athletics facility, enhancing the sports offering in the Wharfe Valley to young and old. Whilst existing grass pitches will be retained alongside, the addition of an all-weather pitch will more than double the existing playing capacity and provide the foundations for a football academy.

Planning Approval for Whitechapel School

Planning Approval has been granted by the London Borough of Tower Hamlets for a rooftop extension to a six storey school, located in Whitechapel. In considering our application, Planning Officers described it as "a bold design they are happy to support".

 

Our proposals include the addition of a new school hall for assembly and sport, together with a gymnasium and changing rooms. The design also incorporates a rooftop garden with a vertical living wall.

Celebrity Connections

We are currently involved in filming for a future episode of Grand Designs during which our very own Richard Addenbrook is interviewed by Kevin McCloud. Following the interview, Richard and Kevin took part in a recorded workshop session looking at the detailed design of this self-build project. In true Grand Designs fashion, it could be some time before this episode makes it to air!

 

We are also pleased to have worked with Linda Barker on two projects which were very personal to her: the redevelopment of the Barker family farm near Halifax and alterations to Linda's Yorkshire home.

Ilkley Civic Society Presentation

We are pleased to have been invited by Ilkley Civic Society to present on the occasion of their annual awards ceremony in March 2013.

 

Ilkley Civic Society has granted Design Award Commendations to two Sense of Space projects: Ben Rhydding Scout and Guide Headquarters and Thalassa, an Arts and Crafts house in the Conservation Area.

 

The work to Thalassa required the removal of some incongruous former additions and their replacement with new extensions which reflect the Arts and Crafts nature of the original house. These latest awards follow on from previous Civic Society Awards for 5 St James Road in 2006 and Apple Hayes in 2011.
