Restoration and extension of Georgian property which works for a modern family

This Georgian property was beautifully proportioned but tired and simply didn’t work for a modern family, with a tiny kitchen located at the back of the property. The homeowners needed to add accommodation and wished to restore the property to bring back the Georgian elegance and style.

Absolute Architecture added a two storey, seamless extension, providing a new large family kitchen and master bedroom suite. The hallway was opened up with a beautiful double height space and the staircase was restored. Elsewhere rooms have been reconfigured and the entire property has been renovated internally, including new kitchens, bathrooms, fireplaces and joinery.

Location: Pangbourne, Berkshire

Materials: Render, traditional joinery made windows, hand built kitchen, stone and timber floors, hand built joinery.

The clever aspects: The principle of ‘less is more’ defined this project. We stripped back recent changes to restore the handsome character of this Georgian property. Attention to detail is key to the authenticity of the renovations. It’s the little things that count, traditional joinery details, shuttered window linings, traditional hand-made glazing, beautiful interior fittings.

Friends on the project:

  • Treadstone were the main contractors
  • Salisbury Windows provided the glazing
  • Snug kitchens created a beautiful hand built kitchen and pantry
  • Fired Earth provided the tiling
  • Farrow and Ball worked with us on a colour scheme
  • Bang and Olufsen installed integrated sound and data systems

We love:

The homeowner placed put full faith in us to completely design, specify and deliver all aspects of this project and we were able to get the best results by collaborating with the best local people. The quality of space and proportion is fantastic, topped off by a decision to open up a double height entrance space which makes the proportions of the grand Georgian hallway really sing. The homeowners really can’t believe they live in a house this beautiful .
