PERIOD PROPERTY RESTORATION & EXPANSION, LONDON

We designed and carried out extensive restoration, expansion and alteration to this mid-terraced London property.

In keeping with the vernacular architectural aesthetic, the front facade was restored to its original late Victorian design, the pebble dash was removed, we then proceeded with the brick cleaning & restoration to the stone detailing, brick repointing and render with lime mortar, replacement of timber sash windows, fabrication and install of iron railings, Portland stone railing plinths, tiled pathway & restoration of the original timber front door.

The rear elevation gave us more freedom to use contemporary designs, a zinc clad dormer was constructed in the loft to create another bedroom and the kitchen extended, Crittal windows and doors installed to the patio and upstairs bedrooms.

Internally, the original plaster, brickwork and timber features were restored and the original timber roof rafters were recycled and cut into slats and used for wall cladding.
