Completed 2014 for director Andy Macdonald’s closest friends this addition to a 1940’s bungalow is a simple diagram that separates the house into three clear zones: Parents / Children / Shared.
Procured on an unusually tight budget the finishes are ‘no-nonsense’ robust and simple. The exposed joists of the ceiling in the new Kitchen/Living/Dining Space add texture and form a link to the textures of the period detailing in the original house. Upstairs the Parent’s retreat is bare bones but heavily insulated to ensure it is not a hotbox in the summer and nice and toasty in the winter.
