Project Update | Crouch End Extension & Refurbishment
Crouch End House gets a 21st Century Makeover
The existing detached dwelling, built shortly after the turn of the 20th century was purchased by a young family looking to make roots in the area. And given the condition, with tired and outdated finishes internally and a poor energy performance, a significant amount of modernisation and investment has been needed to create a suitably comfortable, sustainable and functional house. Every effort is being made to protect and retain existing features, or to safely remove and reinstate them, to preserve the history of the building.
In addition, the loft space is being transformed from an unused storage area into a viable principle bedroom suite with much-needed storage space. This requires raising the ridge, but has been designed so that the change is masked when viewed from the street at the front.
Having commenced works in March, the new foundations and forms are starting to take shape. We continue to work closely with the Contractor and our Clients to ensure every detail is carefully considered and provides the improved dwelling that can meet the needs of the family now and in the future.
