House in Hamble-Le-Rice is a complete renovation and extension project completed by La Hally Architect. The Bauhaus bungalow sits on the edge of the River Hamble, Hampshire, and is a part of Crowsport Estate, a 1930s property commissioned by Sir Thomas Lipton ( founder of the Lipton Tea brand). Originally purchased back in mid-2010, this modest Bauhaus property has been extensively overhauled to create a luxurious seafront home for our clients, who are both keen sailors.
We were introduced to this Bauhaus property when it was in a poor state of repair, and were employed by our Clients to overhaul and modernise the building. Untouched for a number of years the property had fallen into disrepair, with a labyrinth of cramped, dark rooms. By opening up the floorplan and orientating views south to the marina, this dilapidated property has now been transformed into a bright and airy family home. Sliding glass doors make the most of the property’s seaside location, with the original rooftop decking having been reinstated to create the perfect space for entertaining.
We have designed a modern open plan dwelling with large decked roof for entertaining. The building captures the views of the close-by marina, yet maintains privacy with a closed off courtyard close to the enlarged kitchen.
