An existing & previously incomplete house will be given a facelift utilising a natural material palette including some salvaged materials.
The front facade additions include new sliding solar shading devices to protect from the harsh West sunlight. The front garden will become a private & welcoming place.
The existing basement will become habitable. A new lift & modified stair-wells will elegantly enable accessibility between the three existing levels. The new joinery, balustrades & wet areas have been carefully designed to provide increased amenity & accessibility. The existing lighting scheme (largely comprising wall mounted batten holders) has been carefully revised to minimise rewiring & consequent re-plastering, while cleverly enabling the incorporation of some beautiful low energy fittings.
Solar shading, new balustrades & screens will be added to the rear garden.
Master Builder, Giovanni Mangano has been appointed, construction has commenced & completion is anticipated toward the end of 2013.
