After seeing a similar renovation project, which we had undertaken in the same street, our client on this project approached us to design an extension and refurbish this double-fronted terraced Victorian town house situated in a conservation area.
Our aim during this refurbishment was to remain sensitive to the heritage of the building and the local area whilst improving the building on the whole. To this end, we proposed to demolish the existing unsightly extensions and out-buildings that were poorly constructed and replace them with a bespoke design that enhanced both the internal and external environment.
The dwelling was re-roofed with re-claimed clay tiles and new brickwork with a similar size and blend to the existing was selected. The extension affords a kitchen/dining room at ground floor which leads on to the private south-facing garden. There are two reception rooms with typical Victorian bay windows to the front. One of these reception rooms has been enlarged into what was the existing kitchen area so that it can enjoy a rear aspect onto the garden.
“The project went like a dream. Not only were David and the team able to translate what was in our heads onto paper and into life, but they added some really helpful and creative insights and ideas, which has made the house even better than we could have hoped for. From past experiences of other architectural firms, we know just how difficult a project like this can be and so it is to Tarpey Woodfine’s credit that this project was so well planned, designed and executed. Consequently we couldn’t recommend them highly enough.”
