‘It was really about being really rigorous with everything that they used to create that extension’ – Karen Stylianides, Editor, Grand Designs
“It’s hard to say which part we enjoyed most. Each of the stages were so interesting and different. I guess our favourite part of the project is living in our house now and enjoying it every day.”
“Lizzie and her team understood straight away that the essential thing we wanted to do was to extend – we were trying to think of what Walter Segal would have done to extend this house and the main thing in the brief was just to carry on his method but obviously with what we would do and what’s available nowadays’
‘The extension was an opportunity to connect the living spaces with the garden in a more seamless route’, Lizzie Webster, Design Director, Fraher and Findlay
‘What they did really well was to put themselves into Walter Segal’s way of thinking. Proportionally it’s a small extension but using the height and the full space available within the garden has really worked’
