Design Buy Build Issue 27 2017 - Page 5

A UA has converted a semi- detached multi-occupancy house into a family dwelling in the heart of Chiswick. The brief was to create a large open plan ground reception space, with clear visual connections, together with a new basement, rear landscaped garden and upper bedrooms. Material and design finish details were carefully considered throughout and the character of the existing house combined with new build elements add a further design dimension to the spaces. As with many of our projects in London, a level connection with the inside improves a gardens usage, and at night, a carefully planned lighting design visually enhances this marriage.
