Project details

Our clients on this project were downsizing and engaged RENOVA primarily because we take care of the whole project, i.e. the architectural design, technical specification, interior design and construction.

While this was an apartment, it had more in common with a house because it was a large penthouse apartment with a large area of external walls and its own roof. The layout was fixed in place and large scale changes were not possible, though they were not required. All fittings and finishes were showing their age so needed to be updated, but the most pressing issue was comfort. The apartment was built in the 1980’s and only had modest improvements made to it over its lifetime. We needed to upgrade the external envelope to retain heat and keep the cold and draught out. We drylined the exterior walls and insulated the roof, we carried out all airtightness measures to eliminate draught and installed a ventilation system. The heating system was replaced with an air-to-water heat pump. The windows had been upgraded to modern aluclad windows so they did not need to be replaced.

All fittings and finishes were replaced and the apartment was fully decorated to complete the works.
