Cottage Remodel

This project was about increasing light to an existing rear extension and the rooms within, as well as maximising access to the beautiful garden and view beyond.

Modern Extension and Disabled Access

This modern extension required disabled access, due to illness and the necessity to potentially accommodate a wheelchair in the future. The garden was steeply sloping so we carefully designed a ramp to make access beautiful and practical (with raised herb beds) rather than clinical.

Bungalow Remodel

This bungalow remodel almost doubled the value of the clients home and a great reminder that you don’t have to build a new house to achieve your dream home. It is possible to create the same feeling with a remodel.

Kitchen and Vaulted Garden Room

This transformation of a chilly conservatory and dark kitchen into a lovely, light, warm, vaulted garden room and kitchen also saw a complete redesign of the garden. The main aims being to increase the feeling of space and light, maximise views to the garden and make it warm in winter.
