Luxury House Renovation and Extension
The clients brief was to update the existing Edwardian house as well as to add a contemporary glass extension with an open plan living space that seamlessly connects the house with the garden. The project also included landscaping the rear garden, installation of a swimming pool with jacuzzi, construction of a new luxury gym and the addition of a car lift for storing precious cars.
We decided to emphasise the difference in level between the house and the garden by creating a contemporary glass extension floating above the pool surround level. The frameless floor to ceiling glass windows in the extension make it feel bright and airy whilst offering great views into the landscaped garden that evolve from the fantastic bright daylit space to an atmospheric evening and night time setting created by a subtle yet evocative lighting scheme.
The garden also includes a luxurious twenty metre long swimming pool with water fountain and built in spa which is visible down the side of the house from the gym through its motorised glass facade.
This house won the "Best Architectural House" award in the prestigious Internation Design & Architecture Awards 2017 as well as being published many times around the world- most recently featuring on the cover of Homes & Gardens April 2018.
