Key to the design was the removal of an upper level bedroom to create a visually exquisite double height dining space below. This new focal point for the home created a genuine sense of drama amongst the relatively modest ceiling heights of the old addition. The new dining space also exposed the living areas to the natural light of the sky, instilling a more positive mood into the space through increased contact with the outside environment.

In A Further Step To Make The Home More Energy Efficient All Windows And Doors Were Replaced And Refitted With Double Glazing

Andrew Child and his team endeavoured to pay respect to the existing building by retaining as much of the original architectural elements as possible, in the process expertly merging the contemporary and traditional architectural elements.
