property: 1980’s Octagon House.
brief: To create a larger, more modern family home retaining some external features.
approach: The downstairs was made lighter by opening up the back of the house. Windows were changed throughout from old-fashioned sashes to modern casements with improved double glazing. A loft conversion created more space in the roof and a master bedroom with a dual aspect was added above the garage. A stylish, modern staircase was designed by the project manager and client together, whilst a lift was installed for convenience. An up to the minute multimedia room with soundproofing created an entertainment space.

property: Large, 1980’s Detached House.
brief: To create a large room for the adults.
approach: Extension of the ground floor, incorporating an existing loggia. Tie beams in the roof of the loggia were removed for aesthetics and a structural ply membrane was used to hold the roof together. The new foundations were piled to reduce the risk of damage to Preservation Order trees. The result is a large room, divided by seating into separate areas for different functions. Folding, sliding doors create an indoor/outdoor room, with a deck built to the same level as the internal oak floor and stained to match.
