The brief was to extend and fully refurbish a run-down detached Victorian villa to create a 21st century open-plan and light-filled family home. We added a full basement and first floor rear extension, remodelled the upper floors and completely reconfigured the ground-floor. This involved moving the staircase to afford a grander entrance, adding internal glazing between the living room and hallway to visually link the spaces, and creating a central hallway to both separate and integrate the living room with the open-plan kitchen, dining area and snug, while creating a line of sight all the way through the house. On the first floor, the bedrooms to the rear have been knocked through for a master bedroom, adding a large en-suite in the first floor extension. On the second floor a new roof structure provides space for two kids’ bedrooms, bathroom and study/reading room. Below ground, a coal cellar was transformed into a front-to-back basement extension to make room for a design studio, wine cellar, utility room and nanny flat. The house is finely detailed with bespoke joinery. A colour palette of warm greys throughout the home makes for a timeless backdrop. Clever touches like traditional hallway panelling are given a contemporary feel by being painted in the same shade as the walls, and line up seamlessly with the panelled doors. Overall, the project stands out as a remarkable example of how to sensitively update a period property in a conservation area while maximising its potential and useable space.
