Edwardian property, Hampshire

The brief for this project was to extend and reconfigure the ground floor of a semi-detached Edwardian property in Emsworth. The ground floor, including the extension, is to include space for: a kitchen, dining area, living area, artist studio space, separate writing working space and if possible, a WC and utility/laundry area. The clients are professionals living and working in London during the week and escaping to Emsworth at the weekends, with the intention of moving to Emsworth permanently in the future.

One client is a writer and designer, the other a university lecturer and abstract artist. They are creative people with a love of sailing, Italy, art, colour and rich fabrics. Their design preferences are for an eclectic, stylish interior, in-keeping with the heritage of the property, with a warm and inviting feeling.
