Modernising a previously extended Victorian property

I was contacted by the clients for this project after they were passed my details from a previous client of mine.

What was a small semi-detached Victorian property, has over the years been extended multiple times. This has resulted in a wildly inefficient and confusing layout with a rabbit warren of corridors and passing through rooms to get to the next. This meant most spaces were dark and cramped. 

The proposed design looked to rationalise the existing plans. A small extension, in-filling a courtyard, provided space and allowed us to introduce modern home principles whilst retaining the charm and character of the existing home.

Planning was approved in January 2021 and works are due to commence in the Spring.
