A contemporary interpretation of the spirit of Deco.
This beautiful 1930s house required new family living areas to take advantage of the northern aspect and to provide views and access to the rear garden. The strong Art Deco design was the inspiration for a two storey addition to the rear of the house, also providing a new master bedroom at first floor level.
The interplay of horizontal lines and vertical elements in the original house was reinterpreted in contemporary materials, with bands of black aluminium framed windows substituting the white rendered bands of the original.
Curved corners and the staircase in the existing house were echoed in the semi circular termination of the first floor hallway, complete with a curved window and a pair of sliding doors to the master bedroom.
