Stunning Architectural Design Taking Shape in Northamptonshire
3 Aug '18
When our clients approached us requesting an update to their beautiful Grade II listed house in Northamptonshire we were keen to create a unique architectural design which would blend both the old and the new. The house, as it was, needed some modernising to create a more user-friendly space, with up-to-date boot and laundry rooms and a kitchen integrated into the heart of the home. As well as transforming the existing house, the clients hoped to create a distinctive fitness suite with a stylish gym, featuring all the essential equipment and an impressive lap pool.
Throughout the design process we have been careful to consider the existing constraints to the property. The swimming pool and adjoining gym are to be connected to the main house by a linking corridor which uses materials in-keeping with the surroundings. The land itself will not be too imposed upon; the driveway, for instance, remaining much the same. By being sympathetic to the surroundings, the proposed architectural design passed the planning stage and work began on the build in the autumn of last year.
With the help of good weather and hard work the build is really beginning to take shape. Over the summer months we have seen the superstructure of the pool house come together; the ground floor, walls and roof joints are now all in place and the insulation of the roof rafters has begun. Inside the main house, the reconfiguration of the rooms has been largely completed and the internal finishes have begun. The insulation of the second fix joinery is now ready for the final lighting and paint fixes, making an excellent base for the elegant touches required to retain the finesse of this nineteenth century Georgian home. Externally, the beautifully landscaped terrace is now taking shape, giving a glimpse into summer life in the garden once the build has been completed.
As the project gathers momentum all focus is on delivering the quality this stunning home deserves. We will keep you updated over the coming months as the build nears completion. You can also read more about this project in our portfolio.
