1970's House Refurbishment

This 1970’s 3-storey house was completely gutted, reconfigured and refurbished adding new features and ideas that were sympathetic to the era of the house. 

Walls were knocked out to open up the space and create more light and a feature wall of simple birch-ply storage satisfied some practical needs.  A poured concrete floor was chosen for the ground floor and kitchen, whilst the upper floors were designed with an industrial parquet flooring throughout.  The staircase was exposed and brought back to its original wood, adding a contrasting feature green paint colour on the underside.  A large open plan kitchen and dining room were designed with new sliding doors for light and a view into the garden. Bedroom walls were clad in birch ply for warmth and texture, and all doors where replaced with full glass for maximum light. A palm print wallpaper by House of Hackney was chosen for the bathroom with very simple white and terracotta squares.

This new backdrop was now the perfect setting for the owners vast array of eclectic objects and knick knacks.

Sarah transformed our drab, outdated 70s town house into a mid century modern delight. Her skill for colour and space blew our mind. She listened to all our needs for the space as a couple, and created the perfect workspaces and relaxing corners. She worked on designing simple bespoke joinery that fitted in with the style of the house perfectly - we just couldn’t believe what we have ended with!
