LinkedIn Profile


I am passionate about contemporary designs which often lend themselves to eco-friendly and environmentally sound structures. I feel very strongly that eradicating fuel poverty and building homes using sustainable energy efficient practices has to be the way forward.

We undertake a wide range of projects from extensions, refurbishments and alterations to new homes, contemporary homes, greenfield site development, listed buildings and barn conversions.

Some of the projects I am most proud of are:
1- Cedarwood- redevelopment of a site originally comprising a farm manager’s residence in to a contemporary oak framed barn.
2- Old Barn- Extension and remodelling of an early 20th century barn style home designed by Arts & Crafts architect Charles Voysey. The project consisted of replacing unsympathetic extensions added in the latter part of the century. The replacement extension was a contemporary design drawn by Richard Ashby Partners and the building was later nominated for RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) Downland Award.
3- Self-build near Effingham- A brand new build Georgian design created by Des Ewing Architects.

• This testimonial is from our current client after the completion of last project: “Richard Coles has now undertaken 3 building projects for us. The last a complex extension/integration with old farmhouse. Richard uses excellent tradesman and is attentive and resourceful when problems arise. I would thoroughly recommend him for projects large and small”.

• Another testimonial by Bob Munton OBE and Lesley Ann Sandbach
“…Together with the architects, we selected Richard because he came to the initial meetings very well briefed with detailed project management plans…
…We were delighted with the finished building which was nominated for a RIBA Award…”
