The house was in need of improvement and so we installed new plumbing, heating and electrics as well as upgrading the insulative values of the whole property. In addition to these works, the owners were keen to make some big changes to the layout of the Villa, making the space work for their growing family.
The first big intervention seen is the central entrance that was originally at the side of the property. Moving the entrance required layout changes to the ground floor as we created a new hallway and circulation space around the formal sitting room and playroom. The whole of the back of the house was opened up to create a beautiful kitchen, living-dining space.
The number of bedrooms was reduced from 8 down to 6 well-appointed suites. To provide a cinema room, gym and utility area we dug out the existing cellars by a further meter giving a series of very generously proportioned rooms. The interior was styled as a modern take on the Edwardian elegance.
This is what we would describe as a turnkey project as we provided the design, made the planning application and managed the build process.
