Period Country House, Marlow, Bucking


Period Country House in Marlow, Buckinghamshire

restoration : extension : interior design : bespoke furniture

This property is formed of three historic cottages which our client wanted us to extend and merge to create a large family home; to thoroughly modernise it whilst maintaining and enhancing its period features. The brief also called for us to redesign the extensive grounds and renew the outbuildings to reflect the classic style of the main house.

Our most prominent architectural intervention is a large, two-storey glazed atrium, pulling the individual parts of the house together and providing a resplendent focal point to the property. The double height of the atrium offers spacious relief from the low-ceilinged rooms of the original cottages and is central to our rationalised floor plan.

The interior fitout is of the highest standard. We installed a new oak staircase, fine-wood wall-panelling and bespoke, handcrafted furniture throughout the house, creating a luxurious feel. The floors are finished in herringbone parquet and fine carpets and a new lighting arrangement cleverly enhances the scheme
