This renovation to a double fronted Victorian terrace house makes the most of its interior garden courtyards.
The use of rhythmic steel windows to frame the views, a facade makeover of an existing garage, and the reworking of the swimming pool bring visual pleasure and harmony to the main spaces.
The uncluttered streamlined kitchen and raised feature ceilings are a dramatic yet soothing insertion.
The black and white bathrooms arranged around a smaller garden courtyard have a timeless serenity, whilst maintaining a distinct style and character of their own.
The front facade and fence were heritage protected, so we painted them the best of the approved colours, and Kate Seddon was engaged to do the beautiful garden.
The existing windows, doors and finish of the garage/studio were changed to give a more pleasant outlook from the main house.
The framed screens over the new windows give depth and shadow play to the facade of the garage/studio.
Kate Seddon worked closely with the Owners to bring lush green planting into the rear courtyard.
Cement rendered wall is intedned to patina over time nad when wet, and the ivy will green the surface.
New windows lift the appearance of the existing house, and reflect the courtyard giving a sense of extended space. Night time lighting amplifies the textured materials .
