The scope for reimagining this stunning home on several levels required removing a delapidated conservatory to the rear of the property and replacing it with a new full width glazed atrium. It was a unique and interesting opportunity to work on a highly unusual structural design project. Tasked with a total redesign to make the central space work better, Emma reconfigured the stairway by removing the lower section of a spiral staircase and creatively replacing it with a solid oak staircase in the void left by a sash window. This radically altered the flow of the house by joining the newly formed dining extension and leading down into a magnificent and cool sitting room. Additional light also floods into the sitting room from opaque glass set into the floor of the kitchen above.
“Emma transformed my 1980s flat, full of awkward angles and unusable space, into a unique 21st century bachelor pad. Fantastically cool under pressure, she did it with the minimum of fuss and to a realistic budget - despite me throwing her various challenges, including specifying green credentials and state of the art technology.”
