PROJECT Details |

The Briars was originally constructed in the late 1800’s and is 1/2 of a pair of semi-detached houses set on a particularly suburban road in Seaview. The owners commissioned Mattinson Associates to provide a design to streamline the internal layout, improve the function of spaces and update the look of the property to sensitively bring in to the 21st Century, whilst still remaining one of a pair. The design successfully re-interprets the architecture to provide a contemporary solution that still is in-keeping and works as 1/2 of a pair of houses. Daylight is improved throughout the house and small spaces are cleverly transformed to create usable spaces and a wonderful modern home.

 

“We are really happy with the outcome at The Briars and hope to enjoy the home for many years to come. To have clear concept ideas on paper, that make it into the build and then turn out even better than our first thoughts, is a fantastic feeling and achievement. There have been some minor tweaks and changes in materials along the way but we are really pleased with the look and the space works very well for a young family. Many thanks for your creative insight and clever design!”
