scandi modern house

reconstruction of a 1940's bungalow in quiet suburb reworked over the existing foundations & volumes to create a stunning light filled 5 bedroom house in a private garden

the owner had searched his local area on a bicycle for a self build plot or a house to modernise - this resulted in finding a tired ugly bungalow that was redesigned to be rebuilt over existing foundations with a lightweight open plan structure as the ground conditions could not support two storeys

the property has a mature private garden that created the main aspect for the dwelling with a wall of continuous glazing

the client had worked over time in Denmark & was attracted by simple scandinavian spaces, light & natural finishes in birch & beech

the building was glazed with a Danish high performance window system in natural solid wood, doors & huge sliding units all came factory finished to site with a high performance breathable coating

the client sourced simple modern brushed stainless D-Line ironmongery, which was applied to every door, window, cupboard & wardrobe - even the bespoke kitchen was retro fitted with D-Line

the expansive open plan living accommodates the owners collection of classic 20th Century furniture

the living space spills out into the garden via a wide deck integrated with pockets of planting & granite tubs sourced by the owner
