Challenge

Neatly tucked in the middle of a long Victorian terrace resides our client. The traditional layout of their home was not meeting their lifestyle needs and style. Our client saw their opportunity to make a change. After living in Scandinavia for a number of years, our clients fell in love with the clean and crisp Scandinavian style. So, with that in mind our team worked on taking the extension interior design concepts of the client and injecting it into the tired building not only to modernise but to complement the traditional features with Scandinavian home extension with Crittall doors.

The challenge saw the taking of this Victorian traditional home and giving it a splash of modern extension interior design to maintain and modernise. The dis-articulated ground floor rooms lacked essential flow, with the untidy skylight lacking in any joyful expressions. Our clients wanted an open plan kitchen, living and dining room with a separate reception room, but without further extension to the property. The layout of the ground floor was to change entirely, removing major walls, a chimney and the addition of new openings. Our dedication to detail prepared sympathetic extension design options to our client which were designed to get the most out of the space available. For this project we worked closely with our client to redesign the existing layout and redesign of the existing ground floor extension.

Solution

Our client loves light, so we altered the interior space to make that happen. We took on board the clients design finishing and details they wanted to design a simple, clean and crisp space with a Scandinavian ethos. The extension design included wooden floors, timber furnishings, industrial lighting and of course, the finishing touch, a log stack for the fireplace. The underfloor heating prevented the use of bulky radiators maintaining the minimal interior design. The island kitchen provided a breakfast bar intersecting the cooking and eating areas.

One of the features which stands out the most is the crittal styling of the rear doors and skylight. This is not because it is different, but because it complements both the modern interior and traditional exterior very well. Crittall door extension is a mid-way point in design, they look traditional and modern at the same time and are befitting to traditional properties. They conversate with the modern and traditional which preserves a cohesion between conflicting styles. Crittal style being mainly metal, inject a rustic and industrial feel to the property. In the Georgian and Victorian home extensions, they are becoming more common due to their ability to blend in well with the style of their host building.

Of course, the benefits of using our services extend far beyond the results above.
