A central staircase effectively carved up the interior into a multitude of small unconnected rooms. The challenge was therefore to release the potential of the house to meet our client’s lifestyle that required large rooms for hospitality and entertainment - all designed in a traditional style. The key to success of the project was moving the whole staircase outwards creating a new staircase enclosure and extending the rear rooms. This gave the freedom to extend the principle reception rooms and central hallway at the front of the house and the opportunity to create a new conservatory and a media centre within the triangular footprint of the site. The house was rebuilt internally using the highest quality materials to create a home of lasting grace and value. ←previous   next→
