Yesterday, I happened to visit and photograph a project we’ve designed, it was a last minute opportunity so taking these pictures in the evening never shows off the architecture as it should. However, I thought it would be nice to share them nonetheless.
Our clients loved the location of their house, but not the design. Some areas were very nice, but what let the house down was the long journey from the road to the front door, long internal corridors and the overall style of the house. It had been extended a few times previously, and a holistic overview was needed to revamp the house to put these things right, and also to add some more accommodation. We suggested moving the lounge so that the entrance led into this very impressive hall type lounge, thus removing the long distance from the road and parking to the front door. This also removed the long corridors because they now became rooms that themselves connected other rooms together. More accommodation was added to create a two storey bedroom wing and the house was given an external makeover at the same time, I can’t wait until I’m invited back!
