Project overview

The proposal was to refurbish a house which lies on the edge of Conservation Area within its own formal grounds.  Part of the proposals were to introduce a new top floor guest apartment suite with roof terrace within the existing roof voids.  The scheme was discussed at length with the local planning authority and conservation officer in order to obtain a planning approval for the scheme.  The scheme also incorporated ideas on ‘up-dating’ works to several fireplaces, carpentry & woodwork and existing plaster mouldings rather than wholesale removal or replacement, making best use of the existing detailing.
