Grand Designs "The art of restoration"

The latest issue of Grand Designs magazine includes a lovely article “The Art of Restoration” about our Portobello listed villa project.

There were so many beautiful original features in this Category B Listed house, many of which were hidden under layers of insensitive modern additions.  It was wonderful to be able to reveal and restore these as part of the renovation, as well as adding our own carefully considered interventions.  Most of the new elements have been kept deliberately simple to allow the older features to sing.  It’s a fine balance to make an older property suitable for modern life without losing its character, and we are humbled to have such kind words written about our project.
