Siddington Park Retirement Village
Richard Burbidge supplied Elements stairparts to 13 apartment blocks and the central facilities building at Siddington Park Village, the latest luxury retirement development in theCotswolds from Rangeford Villages. Set among scenic grounds and gardens, Siddington Park Village is a luxury senior living development, located in Cirencester, the home of the Cotswolds. This stunning development was designed with the Cotswold vernacular in mind, but with a modern twist. The Technical Team at Richard Burbidge worked in conjunction with the Architectural Team to specify Elements stairparts for the development of Siddington Park Village. The team were tasked with selecting stairparts that were contemporary, yet fit in with the natural aesthetics of the property, which is exactly what they achieved. The Elements stairparts range was selected for each of the apartment blocks staircase. The black metal balusters create a truly timeless look that is both modern and classic. The Oak incorporated within this range is known for its elegance and ability to withstand the test of time. Elements was the perfect choice for these luxury properties. Elements stairparts were also selected as they are simple and quick to install, saving copious amounts of time when installing on site. The innovative predrilled handrail and baserail allows for a seamless installation as the balusters quickly slot into place. Amatching wall mounted handrail was also installed around the perimeter of the staircases for added safety with corresponding black wall brackets. Leigh Sperring, Technical & Joinery Sales Manager for Richard Burbidge said: “We are thrilled our Elements stairparts have been chosen for this exceptional development. We worked for many months with the Architectural Team to find a solution that worked across the entire development. Due to the varying number of staircase pitches involved we even produced bespoke pre drilled handrail and baserail to accommodate each staircase.” “The easy-to-fit design helps save installation time on site and making the product an ideal choice for contractors.

The Old Tithe Cottage, York
Set amongst the Yorkshire countryside, at East Green Farm in the quaint village of Yapham, The Old Tithe Cottage has been lovingly restored and modernised within this impressive barn conversion by local charity, York Against Cancer. Previously a derelict farm cottage at the foot of the Yorkshire Wolds, in a peaceful and tranquil area, The Old Tithe Cottage has been refurbished by the charity, York Against Cancer, for a heart-warming purpose. York Against Cancer is a Yorkshire-based charity that strives to transform the lives of those affected by cancer, from offering key care and life-changing support to funding ground-breaking research. The charity also offers respite homes for patients being treated by the York & Scarborough Hospital Trust. Day-to-day life can often be disturbed by the strain of regular medical treatment, so a break can be invaluable for families to relax and recharge. The Old Tithe Cottage is now the second respite holiday cottage that York Against Cancer can offer to patients and their loved ones, with hopes to lessen waiting lists for stays within the area. The completed barn conversation offers a space for those looking for a much needed break away for their daily routine and exhaustive treatment, without fear of being too far away from their base treatment centre. The fully furnished, one-bedroom cottage is a relaxing and charming space. It features a galleried landing which leads to a mezzanine seating area, with a picture window that overlooks the surrounding countryside. Restored beams maintain the aesthetic of the old farm cottage, whilst cosy interiors modernise the bright and open space. As part of the refurbishment, local businesses provided donations towards various furnishings, with Richard Burbidge suppyling hemlock stair parts from the Trademark collection, which add to the main focal feature throughout the cottage, forming the relaxing mezzanine area. Josh Burbidge, Managing Director of Richard Burbidge, comments: “It was an honour for Richard Burbidge to be a part of this team effort in restoring The Old Tithe Barn for a really special cause. With a huge thanks to owners, Hazel and Phil, for reaching out and for creating this wonderful space in collaboration with York Against Cancer.”

Fashion and set stylist, Kirsty Attwood, has recently undergone a complete renovation of her 1930’s home situated in Cheshire. Her latest project was redecorating the master bedroom to create a vibrant space that feels lived in yet stylish. What was once a tonal grey and white painted room is now a deep, cosy space with added textures and undeniable character. The rich tones of the dark navy painted wall panelling adds depth to the space and allows the master bed to become the main focal point of the room. The added details of rose-pink interior, gallery wall, gold brass accents and light oak furnishings ensure the room maintains a homely feel amongst this eye-catching feature. To complement Kirsty’s initial vision, several of Richard Burbidge’s decorative mouldings were provided to create what is a fully panelled feature wall with a deep shelf. To achieve this, individual half-moon panels were applied with a 9.5cm deep shelf and Pine PSE Stripwood to add detail underneath. Using COAT Paints in the shade 2AM Eggshell, the feature is brought to life and contrasts perfectly with the raw wood flooring. The wall panelling adds a contemporary feel to this newly modernised period-style home that still feels traditional due to this maximalist-inspired design.
