Remodel a crowded end-of-terrace townhouse with a gloomy lower ground floor into a light, open plan space for a young, growing family to work and play.
We designed and oversaw construction of a double-height side extension to enable the kitchen and dining area to be moved up from lower ground to ground floor. The lower ground floor was then transformed into a living room, office, and utility room. An entirely new top floor was added to create a master suite with dressing room, while we provided our client’s eldest daughter with a stylish room to take her through her teenage years.
Nine Lives worked with our clients’ architects to provide plans and elevations for all spaces. While the architects reworked the external shell we worked hard configuring rooms in the new 3 storey side extension and reconfiguring the internal spaces within the existing house. We specified finishes for the floors and walls and designed and sourced fixtures and fittings for the new kitchen, utility room and bathroom. We also designed bespoke a bespoke media unit for the lower ground floor, master dressing room and daughter’s wardrobes, desk and window seat. The new extensions provided a separate study area in the kitchen for the children, a proper play area in daughter’s bedroom, a double office (completely separate from the relaxation space) and two large rooms for entertaining. Danish furniture and accent pieces were used throughout. The finished home has an ethereal sense of light and airy Scandinavian feel, inside and out.
