This was a refurbishment of a large proportion of a large Mansion house which incorporated three apartments over three floors to create a very spacious family home. The client was very ambitious and wanted a home suitable for a growing family that incorporated their sense of fun and style, but also could be used for entertaining. The plan layouts were substantially amended and reconfigured and a new bespoke metal staircase inserted to assist the flow of the house, which had previously been a series of small rooms with no real purpose. Bespoke joinery was created throughout and the client gave the steer on the colouration and materials that she wanted to use. The use of old and new was played on throughout and in some areas decorative plasterwork was inserted to give more interest. Elsewhere a minimalist approach was called for using Crittal type windows and a frameless large glass rooflight over what was the internal conservatory. The end result was something unique and surprising, just what the client wanted.
