Project brief:

Our client purchased this large residential property in Baildon, which was surrounded by a spacious and well maintained garden however, the original dwelling – having been constructed in the 1930s and having seen little in the way of structural improvement since – was somewhat tired.

We were appointed to provide architectural, interior design & planning services in order to help our client achieve an ambitious vision for the property, which involved a partial loft conversion within the existing roof void, significant structural works in order to open up the ground floor plan, which created a light, spacious, modern open-plan living space, the relocation and design of a luxury new kitchen on the opposite side of the house to the existing, the relocation and re-planning of the stair, and the introduction of various modern architectural features such as bi-folding doors and lantern roof lights.

The completed project resulted in a house which was far more suitable for modern family living, a contemporary overhaul of the original property, yet still maintaining the architectural language of the original house, and, importantly, allowing the house and extensive gardens to become far better integrated with one another.

This was an architectural commission which we particularly enjoyed being a part of, and a thoroughly satisfied client was just reward at the end of all the hard work which we invested into the project.
