The house was in need of real attention if it was to become somewhere they wanted to establish their family. So every evening and weekend became alive with activity, tearing down walls and ripping things out – essentially paring the build back to its bare bones.
An exposed courtyard, which connected the main house to the rear building (an old sail loft), was begging for more purpose. So Adam and Daisy developed plans to incorporate the neglected space into the main house, by means of a new roof and an impressive LED-lit roof lantern linking it to the rear building. This, in turn, was transformed into a living room and rear garden with further views of the water. And, of course, they found the space for a cocktail bar too!
As sticklers for usable and beautiful spaces, no place was more important than the kitchen – so finding the perfect kitchen designer, able to translate their needs, was imperative. Colin at CK Kitchens was able to improve upon their initial thoughts - creating a hardwearing, clever and simple space that reflects the couples’ obsessive architectural passion.
