Builder: Stone Edge Ltd


The brief was to restore and re-model a Grade 2 townhouse and to orientate the family’s living and use of the house toward the private rear garden – kitchen, dining, sitting room – with immediate access to outside.

The re-modelling entailed bringing the kitchen back into its original 1824 position. A new build contemporary sitting room was designed in such a way that from the kitchen the garden is viewed directly through it.

The new garden room is sited and designed in such a way that it touches only lightly upon the form of the listed building.

Materials included locally made handmade brick, code 6 lead, locally sourced lime mortar and locally sourced re-claimed York stone terracing.
