We were commissioned to negotiate the complete redesign of the interior of the house with English Heritage and the Local Authority, including the inclusion of a private cinema and a lift. The entire house was stripped to its’ bare essentials and the project returned the building to a single family dwelling. This included the total redesign and renovation of the interior whilst at the same time retaining the principle architectural characteristics of the original Listed design. Imaginative solutions had to be found to incorporate the clients modern requirements in this architecturally sensitive building, involving extensive internal demolition and structural modifications to suit the new layout. ←previous   next→
