We worked with a consortium of investors to develop a site from a tired 1920’s build to a contemporary family home. Time was spent during the initial stages exploring whether a new build or redevelopment would be best. Due to the size of the existing property and the time implications of starting again, we decided to adapt the original building.
The existing property had to be carefully stripped back to provide new structural support and accommodate the open-plan kitchen and living areas. To save time on the project, we will use a mix of masonry construction and timber frame. The project is a commercial venture first and foremost; so time and construction costs has had to be carefully programmed.
The architect, David Fuller, at Andrew Fuller Associates, has put together a scheme that sits well in its surroundings, and has taken advice from local agents on design features to maximise the property’s appeal when it goes to market.
