Inca’s House, Southsea
Our clients purchased a lovely Edwardian terraced property in need of renovation and alterations to make it suit their family’s lifestyle. The rear of the property comprised several small dark rooms and a conservatory. The kitchen was too small and did not have access to the garden. It had very little aspect onto the garden and did not allow for any social interaction to adjacent spaces.
The brief to us was to expand and integrate the spaces in order to form a light filled modern space combining an open plan kitchen sitting and dining area. The use of simple materials was to enhance the retained character of the property.
The result is a light filled space with open views to the south facing garden. The support steels have been detailed to be left exposed to express the modern structure. Crittall style doors with thin metal frames provide lovely frames views of the garden beyond. The terrace across the back of the extension is set at the same floor level as the internal and of a matching material creating seamless movement between indoors and out. In addition to the ground floor a new en-suite shower room and walk in wardrobe was added to the master bedroom and the family bath was completely remodelled.
