House in Charlbury
Project: Loft conversion and internal re-ordering Location Charlbury, Oxfordshire
Services: Architectural Design & Site Supervision
Conversion & Internal Re-ordering, Oxfordshire
This project focussed around the complete re-ordering of the interior of house in Charlbury. Since it was built in the C19th the house had been altered a number of times so that the essence of the original house had been severely affected.
The project focussed on the re-instatement of the original staircase location to the fist floor, re-arranging the whole first floor bedrooms and opening up the attic space to the full roof height and bringing in more light with some sympathetic leaded dormer windows.
While forming the staircase the original stone cellar steps were uncovered and the access re-formed and one of the previously blocked windows was re-opened showing that sometimes new works are based on the re-instatement of the original design intentions.
