This project is one where we commenced the project working to a brief for redesigning and refurbishing our client’s house … but as thing developed it became clear that the best economic solution would be to demolish the existing house and to build a new house altogether … and this we duly did.

Planning permission for the new house was duly sought and obtained and our client went ahead with the building programme and elected to engage a ‘design and build’ contractor. The house we have designed makes far better use of the plot, and has delivered a spacious interior with double the accommodation as compared to the original property on the site accommodation.

The most striking aspect of the new building is the more contemporary front elevation, using a simple vocabulary of materials – stone, white render, stainless steel and slate-grey aluminium windows.
