This project involved significant restoration and refurbishment of a double-fronted Californian Bungalow in disrepair. Work included restumping, new guttering, double-glazing, new insulation throughout, the addition of north-facing windows and the installation of hydronic heating.
The client, an architectural historian, was keen to adopt simple and adaptable practical solutions that could accommodate future generations, while meeting the current needs of a three-child family. A family dining table is the centrepiece of the large, open kitchen. Provision was made for the future installation of a water tank, existing terracotta tiles were reused and bricks were cleaned for later re-use in landscape works by the owner.
