Starting life as a pianist's studio adjoining a large Georgian Villa, this small, two storey house has now become a family home. Our clients needed the upper floor replanning to create a new master bedroom and bathroom suite and the lower floor restructuring to provide an effective display for their art collection and to form a new kitchen.

We renewed the exterior and interior fabric and updated the essential services and systems, improving the energy efficiency of the property. We applied a modernist design scheme throughout the house, with echoes of the 1930s, finished using high quality components and materials.

The architectural challenge was to provide our clients with the facilities and space they wanted whilst working within the confines of the limited floor plan. To this end we carefully utilised the space in the kitchen and bathroom areas, securing decorative radiators above the work tops to exploit an otherwise redundant piece of wall and freeing the lower wall for kitchen units. The granite worktop in the kitchen continues seamlessly up the wall to the ceiling, enhancing the perceived size of the room.
