The renovation of an end of terrace town house built in the 1990’s
We were appointed to find ways to improve the ground floor living spaces, deal with a cold, draughty conservatory and make the house generally warmer. Our solution was to reconfigure the kitchen and living space, creating a bench along one wall for dining. We retained the existing timber conservatory, adding triple-glazed rooflights, insulating the walls, and installing a heater. We also formed new openings in the wall between the living space and conservatory to bring light into the house and create better views of the garden. A new stove on a plinth of Liscannor limestone was installed in the existing fireplace. These low-cost interventions were complimented by the bespoke bench and storage unit in oiled Eurpoean oak.
