The homeowners at Woodstock Road wanted to inject a new lease of life into their large an imposing 1920’s family home, which had been in the family for a great number of years. The property was suffering from a poor connection to the beautiful long garden with many of the internal living spaces feeling cramped and cut off from the surrounding countryside. They were keen to transform the home with a more contemporary style, while retaining its charming character, with open-plan living areas and new glazing systems that strengthened the family’s connection to the outdoors.
HollandGreen Architects worked closely with the homeowner to sympathetically bring the design of the home into the 21st century while offering a gentle nod to the heritage features of the home. To achieve this, Mondrian glazing systems were specified featuring slim steel sightlines to create a sophisticated glazing aesthetic. Steel framed windows were fitted across both the upper floor and ground floor external walls, larger glazing systems were installed to the rear of the property to enhance that sought-after connection to the outdoor living spaces.
