This project is an example of how we implemented structural changes and internal reconfigurations to realise the potential in a previously unappealing property. This property started as a tired, unattractive bungalow and was transformed into a spacious contemporary family home with modern comforts.
Once a series of small dark rooms and an awkward layout, the full renovation design included moving internal walls and rearranging the function of rooms, relocating the kitchen and installing of full height windows, to create a light-filled home that flowed and functioned well.
The addition of a zinc roof, modern glazing and a crisp external render gave the house a new contemporary exterior. The installation of a new under-floor heating system, new electrics and lighting throughout, modern glazing and high-grade insulation greatly improved the property’s energy efficiency.
We project managed the entire renovation, coordinating the work of the team of specialised contractors, and successfully delivered the desired contemporary exterior and interior. The resulting increased value of the completed house recouped the build cost two-fold.
The completed house was featured in The Times property section article “Bungalows with Edge” in October 2010. Read the article here.
