Our project in Ringford Road, Wandsworth is the result of a collaboration between us and a contractor we have partnered with for many years, to create a unique home for him and his family. Shane and Anna Butterick of GSB Building, are from New Zealand, so the choice of materials and decisions to leave steel beams exposed, and other design features are in part influenced by a desire to remind them of a South Island style, very much centred around a self build mentality, and use of wood in all areas of the build.
We got planning for a full width and side return extension, with full height steel doors adding an industrial style to this typical Victorian brick terraced house. The ground floor has been completely reconfigured, to create once large open plan kitchen, dining and living space. The tall metal doors open onto a small but perfectly formed courtyard garden. At upper level a luxury master suite has been formed, the large free standing bath its centre piece. At upper level we extended the loft to create a new bedroom and ensuite.
Much of the interior design is the result of Anna’s eclectic style and attention to detail, whilst Shane and his team took responsibility for building the stunning end result – a true collaborative effort.
