The brief for this project was to renovate and redesign every element of the house and gardens with a contemporary style, ensuring that it worked well for our clients, for now and for years to come.
The ground floor was completely replanned and a rear extension was added which opens out to the garden, blurring the line between the interior and exterior spaces. A large strip rooflight with recessed lighting and mirror walls at each end was added between the existing house and the extension to draw light deep into the plan, and to create a glass link between the old and the new.
We designed a bespoke kitchen that accentuates the natural light with the use of bright, reflective materials. The interiors of the kitchen units were oak veneer to add warmth and texture. A large walk-in larder was incorporated to accommodate our client’s love for cooking and baking.
An accessible shower room was added to the ground floor and level thresholds and wide doors were incorporated throughout the house to make it accessible and adaptable.
Two existing bedrooms were amended to create spaces for home working, researching and archiving with the addition of bespoke joinery in the form of shelving, cupboards and a desk. Bespoke built – in wardrobes were added to the other bedrooms.
