We were asked to unify the space and update the aesthetic to take advantage of the views overlooking the Duchy of Cornwall estate and create a modern family home.

Specifically, the owners wanted to be able to see their kids when on the ground floor, have a kitchen and dining area to accommodate 30 guests and for the house to still be cosy and comfortable with only five people living there. They wanted a master suite with a dressing room and an ensuite bathroom, guest facilities for two visiting families, and three childrens' rooms with a dedicated bathroom separate from adult spaces. 

The refurbishment had to blend in with the landscape, incorporate multimedia and communications and be a contemporary, comfortable space, displaying family portraits and antiques and a few ‘wow’ factors.
