Grade II Listed School House Refurbishment

This was a lovely project, a Grade II listed refurbishment in Richmond. An original school house divided into Maisonettes. See our similar project; Georgian house refurbishment in Kingston.

The brief for the refurbishment was to open up the space to increase light and comfort levels. In addition it was important to create connections between the different living areas currently separated from each other. While also enhancing the original features of the property. A crucial part of the project was to improve the comfort levels within the building. The existing property was cold, damp and drafty. Because of this new insulation and draft proofing was installed under the floor. Furthermore  and a new more efficient boiler and radiators added.

Sympathetic and Stylish

Spacial improvements were to remove the studs walls and a sympathetic timber floor/ceiling support was introduced. The kitchen was re-designed to maximize light and functionality, while making the most of the wonderful large Victorian windows. Special attention was paid to design features that incorporated book shelves and collected items belonging to the client into the space.

The finished Grade II Listed refurbishment in Richmond was designed with a cool, stylish interior. Flooded with light through the period feature windows with a warm and homely atmosphere. The period property details were brought to the fore whilst creating a modern, stylish home. As a result of this when the home was completely refurbished it was featured in the press as one of London’s best buys.
