This Victorian house was completely refurbished and transformed, creating a substantial, luxurious home with a garden annexe. The ground floor has a drawing room, full library, and games room in addition to a spacious extension with an impressive kitchen, unique bespoke dining table and comfortable family room area. There is also a full utility room and shower room, as well as understairs storage.
Upstairs are five bedrooms and three further bathrooms and more storage space, all done to a high standard to meet every need.
A short walk across the stunning new garden takes you to a studio apartment with a kitchen and en-suite bathroom, and concealed garden storage.
Modern Art Showcase
This through living room was completely transformed to house the family's eclectic art collection, and to provide a welcoming space both for them to use as a family and for entertaining.
The previously awkward double space was successfully united into a coherent whole, with flexible seating to accommodate both small and large groups, with views of the art collection from every angle
This 1930's home has been carefully extended and designed to make the most of the space to suit the needs of a young family. The space flows seamlessly through thoue house creating a multi-functional, desirable environment while retaining its unique character.
This light, spacious, inviting kitchen and family room was created from two formerly dark rooms, plus a side extension. Putting all those areas together also allowed the entrance hallway to be enlarged, and a cloakroom to be installed, completely transforming daily life for this family. This is now a large, welcoming space which leads directly onto the paved garden, allowing all the space to be used fully. The kitchen is also fully of clever storage, ensuring that everything has a place and is within easy reach. The worksurface was also more than doubled by having the peninsula dividing the cooking and eating areas. The pendants and wall lights are both decorative and functional, and what once was a dark and unweildy space becomes bright and airy. Using several colours on the units adds depth and defines the room without the need for walls.
Wimbledon Family Home
This substantial house presented unique challenges and opportunities; creating two living areas in the large living room, completely re-designing the kitchen and ensuring that the rooms had an identity, without looking contrived. The result is a comfortable family home which is thoroughly enjoyed by everyone.
Extended Home, Wimbledon
The large conservatory extension on this family home is unique, and gives the house wonderful additional space, both to be "outdoors" when the weather isn't ideal, and for entertaining. The result also balances the living area with the spacious bedrooms, and the colours ensure that the house is warm and welcoming.
1920's Wimbledon House
This 1920's terrace was given buckets of extra space by extending the back only two metres -- a previously cramped kitchen and hardly used dining room were merged to create a wonderfully versatile and desirable space, which is now the heart of the home.
Wimbledon Town House
This house was completely renovated, creating a living room with glass doors that can be closed if needed, and a dining/working space that utilises all the space to it's best advantage. In the living room, the wool and silk rug subtly picks up the colours in the original fireplace surround and hearth, unifying the room.
Three Family Bathrooms in Surbiton
These 3 different family bathrooms have all been brought up to date with their own twists relative to the space at hand and how they fit with the rest of the house...
A formerly nondescript and slightly unwieldy shower room became a sparkling and spacious wet room thanks to a bespoke glass panel, large glass tiles and simple fittings. Everything is within easy reach, and with no shower tray, easy to keep clean. An extra bonus is the niche in the wall to keep necessities close at hand!
A bijou family bathroom given a glamourous makover with a double-ended cast iron rolltop bath and bespoke tiled shelves. When space is at a premium finding enough storage can be difficult; a drawer vanity unit and bespoke shelving addressed this very successfully in this bathroom. The painting is specially designed to work in a bathroom, and the addition of a blind in coordinating colours pulls it all together.
This loft bathroom was slipped into a sloping roof space for two girls; the simple neutral scheme is accented by unique mosaic tiles, which are also used in the bespoke storage unit that runs the length of the low wall, providing much needed storage in an otherwise difficult space. A round basin makes the most of the space available.
