This house had been in the family for a generation and was being renewed for the next generation. In it’s past life the house had been extended and adapted several times to suit a growing family and a changing family dynamic. The next generation and new owners wanted to redesign this house to suit their lifestyle and family. It was also time to modernise the building fabric and utilities. Our design brief was to reorganise the space at ground floor and first floor to create a modern family home layout. Our clients also wanted to ensure that their renovated home was as energy efficient and comfortable as possible. When the layout was agreed we prepared a technical specification to bring the house up to current standards. The finished product is a brand new house in an old shell.
