Victorian home remodel

Family Home Remodelling

The family have been living here for several years, but decided that the space needed restructuring to better suite their family requirements.

The original house is a 1870's brick built semi-detached villa in Chester.

Brief: The client wanted to replan the existing kitchen/ dining area to provide better connection with the garden, as well as redevoping the existing garage into a games room, and providing a new garage with ensuite and dressing room over.  

Due to the site constraints and means of access, orangery extension was completed first. This is designed with a traditional feel to reflect the Victorian age of the existing home. The orangery is glazed with large windows to the rear, and bifold doors to the side, as well as having a large rooflight. The orangery opens onto the refurbished kitchen/ dining area providing a light airy space for the family to live in. The kitchen leads on to a new rear porch, which as well as providing access to the garden, leads to the new utility room, and the refurbished former garage. The existing garage doors have been replaced with a new large window based on the bifold nature of the former garage door. Additional rooflights were installed in this room, within the existing pitched roof, making what was a rather dark space feel much more open.

To the other side of the dwelling a new garage was constructed, with a new ensuite and a dressing room at first floor level accessed from the existing bedrooms.
