We were approached by a couple to transform a tired and dated Victorian property into a contemporary family home for their young family. Works involved an extensive refurbishment and reconfiguration of the existing house with a new contemporary and bespoke rear extension.

Inspired by the dual nationality of the couple (British and Australian) the property is designed to have two distinct characters. The existing areas of the house which contain reception, living room and a bedroom retain original Victorian spatial proportions whilst details such as skirting boards and cornicing are reinstated.

The new side and rear wrap around extension was conceived as contemporary reading of an Australian veranda structure. It is designed to act as a threshold space between the existing darker areas of the house, garden and sky to create an uplifting open plan kitchen and dining space.
