1930'S REFURBISHMENT reclaiming hidden character

This project on a 1930’s house in Kew included a complete refurbishment and remodelling of the house. The project included a rear and side extension at ground floor, a side extension at first floor and a loft conversion.

 The existing house was in a poor state of repair, with piecemeal changes and additions over the years. The works aimed to uncover the existing character of the house and refurbish it into a family home.

On the ground floor the rear and side extension opened up the rear of the property to create an open plan kitchen and dining space. Large doors in the living area open out the rear of the house to the garden. In addition the entrance hall was remodelled to its original state and the original fireplaces were reinstated.

On the first floor the side extension created a new bedroom and enlarged another into a double bedroom.

The existing family bathroom was remodelled and converted into an en-suite. With family bathroom relocated to the rear of the first floor.

The new loft conversion with rear dormer window overlooking the garden, created a new master bedroom with en-suite.

The new walls for the rear extension was finished with brick to match the existing house, the brickwork was also fenestrated to give an interesting pattern to the rear façade.
