Our Ethos within every restoration project is to re-use materials where possible and select complementary new materials to compliment to ensure all restoration is sympathetic to the original building.
This period protected structure and Victorian house is known for its elegant architecture and ornate detailing. This generously proportioned home was sturdily built, making it a popular option for a home renovation project. The Re-use of materials and selection of complementary new materials for the development was intrinsic to the project as was the design and installation of a specialist conservatory to compliment and not detract from the existing building.
