Retro House Renovation


The terraced house is a beach front holiday home in the deal area; the house was in need of ‘modernisation and the client also required more living space in the ground floor as well as more bedroom space. However the client wanted to retain a retro look to the house as can be seen in the attached photos of the project. The kitchen above was enlarged by building a rear side extension, with roof lights and the external wall of original kitchen removed with upper structures supported by steels within the floor.

Open kitchen Diner

Generally internally the original details and features were retained, with new installations designed to merge in with the existing features.

Loft conversion + Balcony windows

The original loft space was converted into a large bedroom with 2 Dorma ‘balcony windows providing spectacular views up the coast and providing space and light to the bedroom. The bedroom was accessed by a bespoke built beach staircase.


The bathroom was formed from the original bed 2 which had to be demolished to make way for the staircase to the loft, The entire bathroom was newly built including curved walls (not in photo).
