Some photographs from a small house ‘contraction’ project we did this year. This was a project where we persuaded the clients to reduce the size of their home, but make the space work more effectively so that it feels larger. This means making a connection between the front and the back with a concealed pocket door between, and using am industrial palette of materials of anthracite coloured windows, butcher board worktop, and exposed London stock brick walls.lls.
We have lots of projects on site at the moment, all at various stages of completion, and all involving substantial alterations to existing properties, either by extending them or in some cases contracting them. It is always interesting to try and re-imagine how the original house used to be – always quite difficult after five months of contractor occupation.
Planning approval has been granted for the redevelopment of this old School house in Moor Park as a new residential dwelling. The existing building, built in 1920s is one of the founding buildings of the estate, and the design seeks to work within the character of the existing property,but providing a more contemporary internal layout, and exemplary environmental performance.
