This project in Kingston-Upon-Thames in South West London included the refurbishment of several areas of a house, including re-fitting the Kitchen. As you can see from the images this is a modern house and the owners are going for a very modern, high end open plan look for their home.
The refurbishment work that we did on this house was focused on the main ‘public’ areas of the home, including the hallway and the large open-plan kitchen. As you can see from the pictures the home owners were going for a lot of gloss and polished finishes and using very neutral colours throughout. This kind of finish is always a challenge on home refurbishment projects as it shows up any imperfections very easily, so great care had to be taken at each step of the refurbishment process.
The kitchen refurbishment represented the largest area of work on this refurbishment project. The new kitchen included several large focus pieces including the marble wrapped kitchen island, the stainless steel fridge and the wine fridge. As you can see from the images our work included installing a new extractor system, putting in new kitchen storage, lighting and other fittings. You can also see in some of the images how we laid down protective materials on the tiled floor to avoid marking it while working so we could maintain the highest standard finish.
Entrance Area and Hallways
Another part of this house refurbishment project was to update the entrance and hallway. This included hanging new interior and exterior doors, installing new lighting. Making these changes helped to unify the look of the house so that the spaces flow together better from the front door, right through to the kitchen.
we did this office renovation project for Edvice Ltd. They are an education company offering consultancy services for students looking to enter the UK higher education system. The office they took over was a large open plan space that had seen better days. Because of the type of consultancy work that Edvice do they wanted to break up the open plan space into smaller meetings rooms and offices so that they could provide consultancy services to individual clients in a more private and relaxed environment. Once we had cleared out the office the next step that was therefore to install the office partitioning system which would allow us to create the individual offices.
Improving the office layout
The office partition system that we used is quick to setup and requires minimal construction work. We were able to build out the new office plan very quickly, creating a series of corridors, meeting rooms and office spaces to allow Edvice Ltd to hold consultations with their clients in private.
Because Edvice Ltd mainly deal with young people it was important for them to have an informal atmosphere in the office. A lot of the rooms were furnished with sofas and arm chairs to create informal meeting spaces while pictures and wall murals were used to add extra interest.
This loft conversion project in the E15 area of London was slightly more complex than normal as the the house we were working on had already been extended at the back. As you can see from the pictures the existing extension has a sloping roof and the loft conversion was extended out over the top of this. To complicate matters further the neighbors had also previously had a loft conversion and extension done so we had to make sure that our work matched up with theirs. In order to complete this loft conversion it was necessary to strip the existing roof off both the main house and the extension. We then had to install steel beams to provide extra structural support for the loft conversion before re-roofing the newly extended area.
Building the extended loft conversion
Once the old roof had been stripped back and the structural supports had been put into place we had to build out the loft conversion space. We used a timber frame for most of the structure to keep the weight down and this was then weatherproofed and sealed to provide the finished exterior.
Loft Conversion Stairs and Skylights
Once the main exterior structure was complete we made the loft conversion fully weather tight by installing the windows, including skylights at the front of the building. We also built a new staircase to provide access up to the loft conversion, As this loft conversion was being done in a Victorian period home the staircase we built was done in a style to fit the rest of the house.
We undertook this project to renovate and redecorate this house in the Hendon (NW4) area of London. Although no structural changes were required for this renovation project there was still a substantial amount of work to do as we completed jobs in all major areas of the house. One of the largest jobs was creating new built in wardrobes and storage for the bedrooms. As these were going to be such a large feature of the rooms the new wardrobes and storage units had to be carefully finished to ensure the detailing was just right.
Bathroom Tiling and Renovation
One of the other areas that required renovation were the bathrooms. We were able to modernise them by updating the tiling and by updating the fixtures and fittings. This included installing new bathroom units and using modern stainless steel taps, radiators and other fittings to give the bathrooms a cleaner look.
New flooring and kitchen units
We also did work on the downstairs of the house. This included laying new wooden flooring throughout as well as updating the kitchen. The new wooden flooring created a unified look throughout the downstairs of the house, helping the different rooms to flow together more sensibly.
