The Brief

2-storey renovation in Redland, Bristol

The clients came to us having lived in the property for 7 years with the brief to transform this Victorian home including the creation of a large open plan middle floor to house a new kitchen/dining/living space. We guided them through layout options and guide project costs before settling on a scheme which included the installation of a structural glass extension & garden renovation.

The Challenge

The existing kitchen/dining was located on the ground floor with poor light quality due to a 1970’s single storey extension which was added on the rear elevation blocking light and views from the kitchen. There was a sunken garden to the rear which meant we had to install a raft foundation to avoid undermining the retaining walls.

The Solution

The plan agreed on was to remove the existing single storey extension, install a structural steel, and on a new raft foundation construct a structural glass extension to create a large open plan kitchen/dining/living space with direct access to the garden. A contemporary kitchen was designed, manufactured and installed by ourselves along with several other bespoke pieces of furniture. Due to the reconfiguration on this level we also installed a new glazed arrangement which provided improved access and light into the stairwell/entrance hall.
