The house was completely modernised, remodelled and extended at different levels.
A full basement was created beneath the existing house, which also extended beneath the garden terrace and on the ground floor a contemporary, full-width extension was created onto the garden. The roof was also extended in a sensitive manner to create additional bedrooms.
The house benefits from an unusually large garden for the location and the design optimises this asset. Unlike many basement excavations, the design successfully links the new basement to the garden, and also to the main family kitchen/living area via an internal feature stair.
