This scheme transformed a tired and inefficient suburban detached house into a modern, sustainable and joyful family home. The project is a great example of our collaborative design process, where we worked with our clients’ strong vision for their dream home.
As one of the clients was a writer, the spaces needed to feel both stimulating and creative. The make-over was influenced by the nature of the 1960s house itself, with the Mediterranean joyful earthy colour palette working with an external treatment inspired by black Scandinavian houses. The decoration and tile treatment was an integral part of the design from the initial stages, and added an extra layer of playfulness in a cost effective way.
