A charming addition.

Folding sliding doors

This early 20th century house had been extended and altered many times before, and each alteration seemed to have concentrated on a particular requirement or area, often to the detriment of the house as a whole. What was required was a holistic approach to improve the overall layout, whilst providing some additional accommodation and enhancing “kerb appeal”. The house had some attractive features created by architects already and it was important not to lose sight of these in our proposals. It is fair to say that our initial proposals encouraged our clients to raise their expectations and together we came up with the adopted scheme. By carefully crafting the design, whilst keeping a careful eye on the practical and the budget constraints, the project was carried through to completion with a minimum of fuss.

The end result has produced a most beautiful house, retaining its charm, improving its poise and creating the additional space our clients required. Often it is the requirement of a client for more space that triggers our involvement but, we can achieve so much more with a house than just adding space given the right ‘tools’ so to speak.
