Project: The clients approached Cambria for help in finding a new house. The problem was that their children had left home, they were in the loft and the first floor and half of the ground floor was simply not used. The kitchen and family area were too small when the children, partners and grandchildren all congregated. But the garden into which they had poured so much energy was lovely. After looking at some options it became obvious that re-configuring their existing house would be more satisfactory than moving.
The design solution was to move the kitchen, link the 2 halves of the ground floor into a U shaped space opening onto a terrace and the garden to create a single generous family kitchen / dining / living area. Two bedrooms at first floor were linked together to create a new master bedroom and an en suite was added over the garage. The loft is now a guest suite while the 2 remaining bedrooms at first floor are served by the family bathroom.
