Before and After


old-fashioned to

inspirational home

Brief: Our clients purchased Down House primarily for its 1.7-acre garden. Despite the house's recent construction, it didn't suit their preferences. They approached PWA to transform the house's look, add expansive open-plan living areas linked to the garden, include a luxurious master bedroom suite, enhance the entrance, and build a garden sauna/jacuzzi.

Design: The ground floor is expanded with a contemporary blue-scaled garden kitchen extension, enhancing the building's appearance. Removing the brick plinth and altering the roof from hip-to-gable gives a sleek approach view. The double-height hall extension creates a striking entrance. Interior wall removal opens up the space, offering clear views to the garden through the rear extension. The glazed end extension magnifies these views, creating a bright, inspiring garden kitchen and versatile living areas. A single-story link to the garage adds a spacious master bedroom suite without altering the upper floor. 

Testimonial: Sam, I must say that you are on the same wavelength as Linda, in particular, and myself. Even the choice of artwork and animal prints! The feature wall looks great specially in the hall. The kitchen looks great and the rooms seem to flow very well. You seem to capture our vision.  Mo & Linda, Hampshire
