Privett House

The property was originally four modest farmers cottages, our client wanted to bring these together to create a new family home. The challenge on this project was how to rework the layout, to remove the duplicate circulation and staircases without losing the original character of the property.

Our solution adds a timber colonnade to running across the rear elevation of the properties, with a central core staircase. This moves the circulation out of the original plan, unlocking the existing circulation pockets into usable space and is carefully designed to use existing openings to reduce demolition of the original property. The remodelled layout delivers a generous living room, two offices, a playroom and spacious open plan kitchen and dining room. Upstairs a fifth bedroom is created as a generous master ensuite.
