The client

A local actress and artist looking for quirky but comfortable living space in an inspirational location.

The brief

The house was in a very dilapidated state and extremely dark. The challenge was to introduce as much light into the house as possible as well as keep all the original features.

What the project required

• Extensive construction works – replacing groundfloor with a partially glass floor to allow light into the basement, rebuilding room on the roof, creating a mezzanine over the main stairwell, opening up several walls in order to allow more light into the rooms.

• Replastering and painting throughout the property

• New plumbing and electricity throughout

• Tiling, restoration of old apertures, installation of underfloor heating
