The challenge

Our clients wanted to turn a mid-century ex-council house in to a stunning and light-filled home.

Our clients, Adam and Lucy, had recently moved from London to their new home in the suburbs of Bristol. Their main issue and brief was how they could alter their mid century ex-council house to feel like a stunning and light ‘London’ home. Challenge accepted! This project didn't even involve a huge extension to the original property and instead only a 2m wide single storey side extension was proposed. The rest was a careful, considered and clever rearrangement of the internal spaces to provide this incredible light and bright home. Features like a re-positioned open stair case, internal critall doors and feature glazing above the new dining area all help transform the space in to a stunning home, completely unrecognisable to its original state.

We love our new space and can't believe how light and bright it feels! New Space Architecture have transformed our ex-council house to something completely unrecognisable and given us the perfect family home.
