New Build Country House
This beautifully proportioned family home was originally built in 1937. Through remodelling and the reintroduction of Georgian period detailing, John Evans Interior Architecture and Design re-established this building’s Georgian proportions. The brief centred on the concept that traditional features were to sit alongside a modern application of design. The client required an interior and exterior where articles and belongings collected over time could be displayed in an experimental yet considered manner. A seamless appearance was designed by creating spaces where 20th century furniture and décor could sit alongside period pieces, all positioned within a classic interior in-keeping with the building’s architectural history. Aesthetically successful features were kept and new construction incorporated in order to fit the client’s needs. These included an enlarged kitchen dining area with chef-standard units and reconstructed bathrooms, detailed with mosaic tiling and limestone flooring. Gardens were designed and landscaped to include an architecturally minimal courtyard with pond and a large, traditional English garden.
