The owners of this early Victorian Grade II Listed house approached us for the extensive refurbishment and extension necessary to bring the property in line with the requirements of their family life.
We undertook a careful and considerate approach, studying each and every of the existing features of the house, identifying those that were original and worthy of preserving and establishing the areas that needed improving.
A restorative and more traditional approach to the above ground levels of the house is put into balance with the contemporary treatment of the lower ground floor, where the existing slab is removed and the levels excavated to increase the floor to ceiling height. A new extension is introduced at this level to allow for the combination of cooking, living and dining spaces.
Through a sensitive approach to the design and materials of the new and restored areas we easily secured Planning Permission and Listed Building Consents.
Where existing, the original features are being carefully restored and brought back to life, and where not, we have designed and specified detailed reclaimed and new fixtures and fittings which will help bring this beautiful house to its former glory.
Works are currenty underway with completion estimated for beginning of 2019.
