Our architect was not pushy or too bold, he was sensitive to the age of the house and bought out the best in it.

Restoration of 15th century house
This project evolved as it went on – the original plan was to remove an internal wall between one bedroom to create a large bedroom and a small study with a mezzanine level bedroom.
Once the project started and the plasterboard was removed it revealed a beautiful vaulted ceiling with original timbers which were incorporated into the design. The end result was a magnificent double height master bedroom with exposed original timbers, a second mezzanine level bedroom and study that maximised the amount of space.
A home brought back to life
All the materials used, matched the period of the property and the architect was able to get hold of a Iot of reclaimed materials such as floorboards and hand rails, while as many of the original period features as possible were retained so to the unknowing eye the renovation was hardly discernible.
