When it came to working on this Victorian house near the sea we took a hands on approach.

The original house

Remodelling and extension

Our proposal saw this late Victorian house benefit from a sensitive renovation and extension. First we designed a traditional verandah with 3m high turned posts and exposed curved rafters. Next we saw the opening up of the kitchen to the dining room, the remodelling of the bathroom and installation of a hand made kitchen.

Once the sash windows had been renovated to include double glazing attention turned to the tumbledown conservatory. The conservatory and single skin outhouse were replaced with an ensuite bathroom and dressing room on the first floor, a garden room, utility and WC on the ground floor. We designed the extensions to blend seamlessly with the original house by the use of hand made bricks, purpose made custom timber windows and salvaged tiles.
