'This is a self-build project, but the transformation on our lives has been huge. The space has a hugely calming feel and truly an escape from London living.'
‘The biggest approach was that we worked with what was here in terms of layout as much as we could without breaking out big chunks to put in new steels and structure that’s ultimately very expensive. It was: how can we make the most of this space whilst doing the smallest number of really nice moves? And make it feel like internally that it’s always been there; that the rooms connect and the way you move around the space feels like the extension has been a part of it’.
