Exterior and landscaping makeover
The owners of this conversion were tired of the front of their Victorian house.
The brief was to restore some of the original features - porch, chequered pathway, and railings.
Other works included rerendering the front elevation, entire pointing of the side wall, redirecting of rainwater pipes, and roof repairs.

A contemporary terraced building juxtaposed with Victorian 2 up 2 down houses in West Hampstead.
The Camden planning department rebuffed our intentionally ambitious first scheme and finally compromised to give us what we were hoping to achieve.
The build was no less complicated, as houses on either side of the land were supported by scaffold poles. Step by step, the poles were removed as the building went up.

Build time: 3 Months Build cost: £70K
Complete refurb of flat.
Before the refurb, the kitchen was in the lounge and the bathroom was an irregular shape.
Stealing some hallway, and fitting of Velux windows, allowed the creation of a bright kitchen in its own space, and the creation of a regular shaped bathroom.

For years, the front of façade of this house was blockwork.
Sand and cement render and white paint, finally gave this unique house some status.

The landscaping of the drive in this prestigious NW3 street was simple but attractive.
Original yellow London stock used for the garden walls blend well with the Monsoon grey' sandstone flags.
Landrock Road, N8
Build time: 6 weeks Build cost: £30K
A contemporary kitchen refurbishment.
This long kitchen diner in Crouch End was not the brightest, nor the most modern.
Facing NW, and with only a small window, it was pleading to have its back wall knocked out and 2.6m high bifolding doors fitted.
With light and vista at one end of the room, the layout of the kitchen and dining areas had to be reversed. But this could only be done by removing a large portion of the chimney breast so that units could be built into it.
The finishing touch to brighten up the flat was knocking out the wall to the hall and replacing it with 2.7m high glass double doors. Then the hall brightened up the kitchen, and the kitchen brightened up the hall.

Grey Indian sandstone compliments the red brick house on this drive in Dartmouth Park.
The drive and fence was deisgned by a landscape architect we brought in. The path, a straight run of one-size slabs, edges the mutli-size slab driveway, and a hardwood picket fence edges the perimeter.
Repointing of front elevation
Build Time: 2 weeks
Build Cost: £3K
The front facade of this building was a motley of different pointing colours.
After acid cleaning, and refacing spawling brickword, our stonemason removed all the mortar and repointed the facade resulting in a more unified look.
