Brookmere Barns

Our clients, a retired couple of 32 years, sought to downsize.Inspired by the site's heritage, we crafted a home merging a masonry farmhouse with a steel and concrete barn, designed in an L shape to enclose a traditional courtyard.


This design not only honours the land's past but also accommodates up to 20 guests, reflecting the couple's vibrant social circle. A glazed link connects the barn to the main house, allowing for energy-efficient closure when unused, showcasing a thoughtful blend of history, hospitality, and sustainability.

The Roost

Arkhi Architects were commissioned to transform an agricultural stable in North Staffordshire's Greenbelt into The Roost, a cutting-edge eco-residence.


Tasked with blending modernity with nature and comfort, the project focused on eco-friendly features and wildlife encouragement while navigating strict planning regulations.


The design features large windows for natural light and stunning views, a living roof attracting birds and insects, and rainwater-fed ponds enhancing the local ecosystem.


The Roost emerges as a testament to sustainable living, harmoniously integrating family and community gathering spaces within the breathtaking Moorlands landscape, embodying architectural innovation and environmental stewardship.


In 2012, Matthew Lewis, our director, embarked on the Cloudhaus project, acquiring a site with a static caravan and planning permission for a home that initially didn't meet his vision.


Driven by a passion for contemporary and sustainable design, Matthew aimed to create the perfect family home that respectfully blends with the local Staffordshire Moorlands environment. Despite the innovative design and technology presenting new challenges for the local council, our expertise in sustainable architecture facilitated the project's approval.


Cloudhaus's construction journey, a testament to creativity and dedication, was featured on "Building the Dream," Series 4, Episode 2, showcasing the realization of Matthew's vision.

Japenese & English poetry house

Our client sought unparalleled design and construction quality for their new home, emphasising airtightness and detailed features like recessed curtain tracks.


Tasked with transforming the site into a contemporary gem, our team aimed to merge luxury, functionality, and innovation. The design prioritises communal ground-floor areas to enhance connectivity, while quieter spaces offer tranquillity, linked by a library that melds elegance with practicality.


Drawing from the site's history, we utilized a minimalist material palette, combining timber, white render, and local stone for a sleek look. Arkhi's concierge service ensured rigorous quality control, exceeding client expectations by transforming their vision into a bespoke, flawlessly executed home that redefines architectural boundaries.
