What started off as a remedial project morphed into a complete renovation giving us the opportunity to really ramp up the homes performance (energy efficiency). Remedial projects require expert designers to be sure all issues are put to bed for good which is why the Watt’s came to us. Highly detailed and clever design see architectural accents throughout what feels like a brand new build. Solid timber stairs appear to float between levels due to the choice of materials and negative detail. Brick work involves a secret weather proofing detail as flashings would have been an eyesore. The brick has been treated with a specialist limewash product enabling the house to look even better with time. Clever use of natural materials, as seen with the Plywood soffits, add character and warmth to this waterfront hideaway.
