Number 5

Originally a brewery warehouse and most recently a car garage, the home of Artel31 had been vacant for nearly a decade when we acquired it.

After stripping back previous modifications to reveal the historic structure, we undertook a comprehensive retrofit. This included installing new insulation, Air Source Heat Pumps, ventilation systems, and a new soakaway system to separate the combined wastewater system.

The upper two floors now serve as offices, including our own, while the ground floor houses Cousin Norman’s café.

Outside, we’ve created a community area featuring a biodiverse planting scheme and even a ping pong table.
