This project sought to realise the potential of a desirable plot in the Essex countryside by the radical transformation of an existing dwelling into a new building of 'authentic' historic design.
The intention was to achieve a real affinity with similar historic dwellings in the locality and contrast boldly with the ubiquitous twentieth century suburban house types nearby.
Attention to detail was key, and the design was to replicate the spacial qualities and complexity of shape and form found in actual Georgian houses.
Our involvement in the project included feasibility design, planning and building regulations approval and tendering. The photographs show the house as existing and nearing completion.
The project is due for completion early in 2012.
