House / Studio Additions
House / Studio Additions - extensive alterations and additions to a house and music studio in Beaulieu Estates, incorporating the use of organic curved plaster walls to offset the existing dark brick
Extensive alterations and additions to a plain facebrick house on a large stand in Beaulieu Estates resulted in a series of plastered curves and counter-curves that wrap the old house within an expression of the client’s individuality and style. The walls peel back to allow light in whilst opening out to the entertainment areas—the aim of this intervention to complement the specific lifestyle of it’s occupants. The kitchen became the armature that holds the new layout together, celebrating the preparation of meals together as a family, while the alterations to the sleeping wing included the addition of a playroom and study above the kid’s bedrooms and bathroom accessed by ladder from the passage below.
