We're delighted to be working on our second project with this client. On this occasion they have bought their ‘forever home’ for their family (two mature children and two children under two); a large, historic Dutch gabled Victorian home with mature orchards and beautiful grounds.
What was the client’s brief?
Over the years, this original period property has had a number of ugly extensions added. It has also been left in a tired state. Our client has asked us to remove the extensions and restore the home to the Victorian heritage it once enjoyed.
We’ve also been briefed to design a contrasting, contemporary new extension, creating a glazed, large open plan kitchen with views across the stunning grounds – giving them the best of both worlds. We’ve been asked to remodel the internal part of the main house.
And finally, to complete the project, the client has asked us to build and renovate outbuildings, installing a swimming pool, and breathing new life into the Victorian walled garden and Victorian greenhouse.
What did we do?
We designed a stunning new extension with glazed links and internal courtyards, and reconfigured the interior old the house to create a large master suite, five bedrooms and a cinema, plus the all-important new playroom!
We’re at the design stage right now, and are presenting the client with 3D models of their new home. We’re also working with a garden designer and planning consultant.
What did the client like best?
All our clients love our use of technology. 3D models enable them to get a realistic idea of exactly what their new home will look and feel like.
It’s also a valuable tool for planners, as we can demonstrate in great detail what we are planning, and how every element relates to each other.
Another important benefit of 3D planning is our ability to show clients and planners on Google maps exactly where the light will fall at any time of the year, and where any shadows will lie. This is particularly helpful for worried neighbours who will always imagine the worst when they find out their neighbours are planning an extension or external alterations! We can often reassure neighbours and planners that our plans won’t interfere with their own property and daily life.
