7 Croftway, Acomb

Architect/ Designer: Wildblood Macdonald Architects
Client/Developer: Owner
Builder: Buildtech Construction (York)

7 Croft way is also a conversion of a typical period house, but in this instance a semi-detached house of the 1930’s – converted by the architect-owner for his own family.  Again the house has been enlarged – with extensions to the side and to the rear on both ground and first floors – that provide additional living space and a study on the ground floor, and releasing space on the first floor to make four bedrooms and two bathrooms.  The additional spaces at ground floor are not large but are arranged to open into each other and into the garden in a way that gives an impression of unexpected space and ease.   Particularly satisfying are the glass walls of both the dining room and family room – that slide away in two directions to open out fully into the garden in fine weather.  The layout and detailing of the kitchen and bathrooms show the same care and sense of practical economy with a twist of wit.  It is a delight to see good design that is ingenious, practical and beautiful – without being unduly expensive.
