The brief – traditionally modern! The outcome - A traditionally proportioned Victorian Villa designed of a high quality to complement and enhance the emerged characteristics of the conservation area it appends, constructed however, using cutting edge techniques, materials and technologies.
This 7,500 square foot house comprises of 5 en-suite bedrooms, open plan kitchen/ dining room/ snug, formal lounge, play room, utility, office, cinema room, games room, bar, wine room, gym, plant room, double garage and external kitchen with dining area and fire place, all set over 4 floors.
Although from the street scene the house presents itself as a traditional Victorian style house set to enhance the conservation area to the rear a slightly more modern approach has been taken. With wide openings, the large expanses of sliding glass set in minimalistic frames allow for a more flexible and modern life style allowing the external space to become a part of the everyday living space.
No expense was spared in order to achieve and implement the traditional architectural detailing and characteristics of the design which were drawn upon from both typical and also relevant examples which form the predominantly Victorian characteristics of the area's general vernacular.
Not only were the visual details a priority in achieving a high quality design but so too were the sustainable and efficient technologies, construction materials and sustainable architecture which were implemented in order to minimise the environmental impact.
