Brief: This original 1970s detached house needed a complete renovation. The owners wished to create a bold contemporary new look far removed from the existing. With that in mind we designed a home that incorporated a series of extensions and alterations with flanking gables either side of a double height entrance porch and a large open plan extension was created to the rear. The owners were also keen to incorporate sustainable solutions to the house.
Outcome: The all new render and timber-paneled facade with striking, lofty entrance porch offers an impressive street frontage. The double height entrance hall welcomes you before opening into an expansive kitchen and living space that flow naturally together. A corner-less glazed rear extension opens onto a patio that wraps around the Southerly rear corner of the house to maximise direct sunlight throughout the day.
A focus on sustainability is evident in the home, with improved insulation throughout and heat pump-powered underfloor heating. This transformation was the perfect opportunity to future-proof a home and give it a new forward-looking lease of life. Work is nearing completion, and we are excited to see it completed soon.
