The masonry facade of the property was retained as per the planning permission, whilst large sections of the original property and a 1960s extension were demolished, and a basement created. The site is particularly tight and all materials had to be carefully taken through the front aperture into the small garden space.
Simplicity of materials
The property is characterised by the choice of materials and the simple colour palette. Concrete, wood, glass and metal are used throughout to great effect creating crisp, sleek and light spaces perfect for modern living.
We recreated period architectural details on the street level facade that had been lost when the property was extended in the 1960s. The ultra modern home we built is discreetly tucked away whilst the renewed period facade lifts the character of the streetscape.
