Acton Loft Conversion

This is a loft conversion with a difference. The folded oak and steel staircase is bathed in light, sunlight punches into the heart of the house, and the top-lit glass shelving walls separates and connects the study to the rest of the house with elegance.

Arts & Crafts House

The original house was constructed in the early 1900’s. It was undersized, needed renovation and sat on a large plot. The rear garden wall was listed, the plot bounded Henry 8th Royal hunting grounds - Bushy Park - and it was located in the London Borough of Richmond.

Birch Grove

Before we started, this house felt very heavy. It had a large foot print and it felt very dense. The building had been carved up into a family home and a granny flat too, with rooms within rooms and a warren of corridors.

Cap Ferret Holiday Home

If this wasn’t an exercise in patients and in tenacity, I don’t know what is!

Grade 2 Listed Queens Gate Apartment

The apartment had not ben touched since the 1970’s, with green shag-pile carpets throughout – even in the bathroom, a sunken bath and flock wallpaper. The flat was devoid of period detail and felt undersized and heavy. Our brief was to modernise the apartment, open it up and make it feel light, and put the period detail back where appropriate.

Andrew Wood Associates

Grade 2 Listed Westminster Townhouse

Karl & Vanessa were moving from a large New York apartment to London. They had been living a lateral existence, all rooms on the same level, no steps and no stairs. They asked for a sense of their New York apartment in their new home, but there was only one catch… The house they were buying was a town house, over five floors, with steps in abundance.

Andrew Wood Associates

Hampstead Town House

Before we started, the house was in a poor state, the interior was poorly laid out and the rear garden was tiny. We were asked to open the house up, restore the period detail, modernise and do something about the tiny garden. The brief was to transform the house into an open, modern family home, where the spaces flowed into each other on the ground floor and for the garden to function as another useable room.

House fit for the Beatles!

Previously, The Heroes of Alma, this house when a pub was a popular haunt with the Beatles, Queen and Pink Floyd as it was the closest pub to Abbey Road studios. When the Beatles were recording there during the Sixties, the Heroes of Alma was where they would beat a retreat for a restorative pint or two. It has been a house for many years, but it still attracts camera-wielding tourists on the Beatles' trail.

Karen Hardy Dance Studio

The brief from Karen was simple. Create a flexible dance studio, sub-dividable, with a social bar space, reception, office and cloakrooms. The programme however, was not straight forward at all…..

Andrew Wood Associates

Kensington Mews House

This project was a technical challenge. The starting point was simple, to amalgamate two mews houses into one and create a modern generous family home full of character and a generous provision of space. However, each mews house had different floor levels, they were both structurally unstable and we were in a Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea (RBKC) conservation area. This project was for a developer, so the programme was tight and the budget even tighter.

Andrew Wood Associates

Reeves House, Clapham

At the time of purchased, Steve & Karen’s new home didn’t work well. The ground floor was all but cut off from the rest of house, the spaces badly flowed and the garden was hard to access. We were asked to open the house up, modernise it, improve the relationship between the house and the garden and to create a family living zone over the bottom two floors that brought the family together even when they were in different rooms or on different floors.

Robin Hill

Robin Hill is situated on a 7.5 acre plot on the Wentworth Estate, on the edge of the famous Wentworth Golf Course. The previous owner was a tree collector, so the undulating plot was heavily wooded with specimen trees. The original building on this large plot was 7,500ft2. The site was in the green belt and under green belt legislation any future building would be limited to 10,000ft2 under conventional planning calculations.

Southgate School Science Laboratory

The brief was simple, create a new science lab for a space-stretched science department. The process of delivering the lab was anything but …

Springfield Farm

Springfield Farm, an elegant and sustainable modern family home located in the green belt south of Bath, on the edge of a small rural village.

The clients Max and Diana, retired architects, chose Andrew Wood Associates from a not-so-short list of forty architects. They asked for their new home to be a contemporary and individual architectural piece; a home in which to display their art collection, and for the house to sit very comfortably within the rural environment. They asked for spaces, not rooms; divisions, not walls; and vertical and horizontal...

St Augustines Mansions

The apartment had not been touched for twenty five years. It was tired, the services were old and a full refurbishment was required. The building was brick and concrete, it was an Edwardian mansion block and there were lots of flats to try and keep happy through the noisy dusty works.

Andrew Wood Associates

Stark House

The existing building was in a very sorry state. The front façade had become detached from the building. The roof was leaking and there was a large lift in the middle of the house. The building had not been touched for 30 years, it needed a lot of work.

The existing staircase sat in the middle of the building and dominated the plan. The rear bedrooms were all accessed from the half landings. What was a sizeable house felt small and pokey. We took the decision to relocate the staircase to...

Andrew Wood Associates

Tedworth

This penthouse apartment on the corner of Tedworth Square was split-level in layout. It had a butterfly roof over the lower floor that was leaking. The roof needed replacing and the flat was tired. This was an opportunity to remove the roof, create a roof terrace and refurbish the apartment throughout.

Andrew Wood Associates

The Boltons - Dressing Room

This is one of the smallest and most difficult commissions we have undertaken. We were asked to create a dressing space adjoining the master en suite for the ‘man of the house’. We were asked to blend the character of the house with the feel of a much-loved chest of drawers in the adjoining master bedroom and also for the furniture to have a hint of gentleman’s club about it too.

Andrew Wood Associates

The Redhouse - Grade 2 Listed

The Red House was originally the Holborn Union Offices and built in 1886 in the Queen Anne style. It has stunning ornate red brickwork. On a very tight budget, we were asked to do two things. Firstly, to bring some order to the kitchen, dining and living space and secondly, somehow, to create a gym, storage, dressing room and flexible space from the tiny second bedroom, which was to continue to be a bedroom.

Andrew Wood Associates

Welbeck House

This was quite an unusual commission. The penthouse had recently been finished by a developer. Our client liked the location and the West End views from the balcony, but didn’t like the minimalist interior with white walls, frameless glass and clinical character. We were asked to give the spaces a warmer tone and more storage.
