Turning dead space into living room
In an urban semi the best way to gain extra space is to head for the roof. And we created a lot of extra space. We built in a new staircase from the first floor landing, constructed a flat-roof dormer on one side to maximise the available space, added velux windows on the other the maximise the light, and put in a small bathroom to finish it off. The velux windows open out almost like a balcony, and the chimney breast has become an unusual focal point and feature of the room.
The result is stunning.
Traditional style with a contemporary twist
We were asked to build adjoining holiday cottages in Cornwall, which is a little outside of our normal Cambridgeshire area. It was a great opportunity to work with some of the local stone and blend this entirely new build in with existing neighbouring buildings.
The best of both worlds
This building project involved renovation of a period house and extending it substantially at the rear. Our aim was to combine the new work with the existing building to create a unique family home of particular character. With great attention to detail we extended the width of the existing house, moving windows to create symmetry, and matching recycled bricks to blend the new seamlessly with the old.
The house was then greatly extended to the rear to create an extensive open-plan living space and new kitchen with large garden-facing windows. We worked with the client's ideas and requirements to create a home that is spacious, functional and stylishly constructed.
High quality within a sensible budget
For this project, we created a kitchen that was stylish and durable while remaining cost-effective. The combination of bespoke solid oak worktops, low-level lighting, and off-the-shelf units and fittings resulted in a kitchen that is both practical and elegant.
We took care of all the practicalities, including electrics and plumbing, leaving the client with a high quality kitchen designed specifically to meet their needs.
Creative use of available space
If you spend a lot of time working at home, it is important to do so in a practical and comfortable environment. This fitted study was built with care to meet a client's specific requirements and exact space. Working to maximise the room they had available, we created a surround desk with spacious storage options. From a space that was potentially difficult to use effectively, we delivered a smart and professional study.
Catching the light all year round
This conservatory was built with both comfort and practicality in mind. Fitted out with luxuries such as slate flooring, under-tile heating and argon-filled self-cleaning glass, the room can be used in all seasons for any occasion. The two doors extend the flexibility of the space. The construction work was done with care and sensitivity, with an extra internal wall built as a damp barrier for the neighbouring house.
The final result is a conservatory that is complementary to the existing building, extending its functional space.
Clean lines for an uncluttered bedroom
These fitted wardrobes were design to be simple and tasteful, complementing the style of the room, and making full use of the space that was available. The storage space that they provide is extensive, but the stylish design keeps it discreet and unimposing.
This is a good example of high quality design, combining functionality with elegance.
