This project involved the total renovation of a 3 bedroom semi-detached house. The existing interior of this semi-detached house had not been touched for 10 years and required a serious makeover including re-furnishing. An uncluttered, simple aesthetic was developed to maximise the feeling of space. As the client entertained frequently at home this was a key aspect of the brief. The entry vestibule was re-configured with a large pivoting door to act as a feature upon arrival and provide privacy to the guest area on the lower floor adjacent along with an en-suite bathroom beyond.
The existing living and dining rooms were interchanged to provide a larger dining room and create an informal lounge area adjacent to the new streamlined kitchen. The use of pivot-based armchairs with organic forms acts as a foil to the rectilinearity of the space and allows guests’ conversation to swing around between the kitchen & the dining room. Extensive new custom joinery was designed to increase and rationalise storage space. A new wall unit in the dining area contains storage for crockery and formal dining ware and features a granite worktop to act as a buffet unit.
As the kitchen was to be visible from the lounge, a design was developed which resulted in a series of cabinets concealing items such as microwave & fridge. The totality of the upper floor was also re-designed as a private space with a bedroom converted to a TV / Study / Lounge, the bathroom stripped out and re-designed and master bedroom re-configured to maximise views, light and wardrobe space.
