This Bristol Arts and Crafts-styled house was built by Stride Builders in the 1920s and has had only one previous owner. Besides basic maintenance and questionable décor, few improvements had been made during this time. Goodchild Interiors was appointed to completely reconfigure and sympathetically update the building to become the family's primary residence.
Our brief was to create:
- A heart of the home, consisting of kitchen, dining space, and an informal living room/playroom
- A double garage
- An additional bedroom and office
- Landscaping and summer room
- Lots more storage
- Upgrade the interiors to be in-keeping with the architecture
- Ensure a quality of finishes, fixtures and fittings
- Seamlessly incorporate technology and services within the fabric of the building
Besides updating the décor and amenities, the main issues to be adressed were the size, orientation and flow between the spaces.
