In a corner of a hamlet in rural Trinity, two residential sites were
reworked to create four beautiful family homes, in a sympathetic,
traditional style, to quietly blend into the peaceful countryside.
A drab 1980s office building on a landmark town site was given a breath of new life, resulting in 13 well appointed, smart apartments; proving that re-purposed buildings are not only sustainable but can be aspirational too.View project
The Atrium is located at the base of the natural escarpment of St Brelade's Bay. The site is within the Island Plan’s Built-Up Area Zone and the wooded hillside to the North, falls within the Green Backdrop Zone. The steeply sloping site enjoys spectacular panoramic views of the sweep of the Bay to the South.View project
Godel Architects were appointed by the Clients to breathe new life into the semi-derelict site, that was listed as a Site of Special Interest, and was therefore in need of careful consideration during its renovation; not only in the spatial design, but in the construction techniques and detailing employed to in its transformation. The brief was to develop a collection of three farm buildings into a complex of domestic suites to together, operate as a family home.View project
Godel Architects were approached by the developer-client to develop an existing house, which was looking tired and dated, to transform it into a crisp and contemporary home. The site is located on Jersey’s North-East coast and offers spectacular views of the sea to the Ecrehous and beyond to Carteret in France.View project
The Chapel is a Grade 1 listed building and an iconic landmark, on La Grande Route de St Jean. Having become redundant as a place of worship, permission had been previously granted for conversion of the Chapel into a single family home, as part of a larger scheme to renovate the adjoining buildings and to build new dwellings at the rear of the site.View project
Godel Architects were approached by a developer-client to design a collection of homes in St Clement, to fulfill a range of market-types, on the site of the former Samares Coast Hotel. This development consists of several houses and apartments, brought together with sensitive and intelligent use of the site. The houses face an internal green, reminiscent of the tradition English village, and the apartments and town houses are orientated to take in the attractive views over the beach.View project
This site was once the Bistro Rocque Restaurant, in Grouville. The original property had been considerably extended over the years so that the site was of little architectural merit. Godel Architects were approached by the client to design a new residential development on this visually prominent and well-known site.View project
In 2012, Godel Architects were appointed by a developer to re-design a previous planning-approved scheme for the conversion of this listed C19 outbuilding . The brief required the conversion of a large barn to form three 3-bed cottages complemented by extensive external landscaping. To ensure a sympathetic appearance it was critical to employ traditional techniques and materials to complement the existing buildings’ structure and historical settingView project
This Developer-led scheme was designed to replace two commercial sheds with four new family homes. The brief also required the inclusion of an existing barn in the development.View project
This scheme was prepared as part of a competition entry for a housing development in central St Helier for a Housing Trust.
It included two levels of basement parking for 259 cars and 188 flats arranged over four to five floors, with pedestrian routes and public spaces creating a permeable and attractive urban landscape.
