PETE TONKS - ARCHITECTURAL DESIGNER

PETE TONKS HAS A REMARKABLE DEPTH OF UNDERSTANDING WHEN IT COMES TO THE PROCESS OF SELF-BUILD AND ASSOCIATED PLANNING

 

Pete Tonks has almost 30 years of specialist self-build design knowledge and experience. His background as a bespoke home designer, specialising primarily in timber frame building solutions, began with a design apprenticeship in 1984. For almost 20 years, Pete honed and refined his skills and learned how to design, specify and build a wonderful collection of homes. 

Since going solo in 2003, Pete has been a member of the Oakwrights Architectural Design Team, catering for a wide cross section of clients who require exceptional service with their self-build projects. Pete can undertake concept studies and feasibilities as well as design and submissions for planning applications, specialising particularly in oak framing.

OAK FRAME DESIGN EXPERIENCE 

 

What Pete can offer you is first and foremost, an in-depth understanding of the whole process of self-build and the planning work associated with it. In addition to this he also brings to the table a more contemporary, unorthodox approach as to how you can undertake that process. 

Pete's continual aim as a designer is to push the boundaries and present refreshing and exciting possibilities that are not achievable anywhere else. Pete Tonks and the Oakwrights Architectural Design Team, see your expectations and aspirations as an integral part of the self-build process.

PLANNING AND DESIGN EXPERIENCE

 

More often than not a new-build is required to have a particular vernacular design scheme that is sensitive to the existing regional aesthetics. For this particular project Pete Tonks had to quite literally fit a design into the Kent countryside. The planning and design skills are at their most apparent from the top gallery. The space that is opened up to the rest of the house by the design and construction of the vaulted hall simply opens the whole house up to the natural light and allows this couple to bask in their surroundings.

'OAK FRAME CONSTRUCTION IS A VERY TRADITIONAL WAY OF BUILDING BUT CAN BE USED IN A HIGHLY CONTEMPORARY WAY.'
