The home was built in the late 70's to high-end specifications, however had not been updated since conception. As a result there were many features to the home that had not aged well and needed thoughtful intervention.
The layout too was dark and dysfunctional. The pool house was accessible only via the garden, however was one of the heaviest used spaces for the family. The new plan sought to create an open plan style more conducive to modern family living, and one which could celebrate the unique backyard with mature, woodland landscaping.
