A tired looking exterior paid homage to the art deco styling of the 1920s, Mattinson Associates have added a striking contemporary edge to the renovation both internally and externally using 21st century design to update the feel of the house. The careful use of colour and texture have breathed life into the facades, whilst balconies with uninterrupted frameless glass balustrades maximise views to the Solent.

“For us the great thing about using Mattinson Associates was that they came up with a good selection of conceptual ideas that as a client one could take forward and explore further ending up with a final agreed plan which in many ways was very different from our own original thoughts. After that they took all the hassle out of acquiring planning permission; preparing tender documents and appraising builders quotations and their detailed plans and drawings were more than sufficient for us to project manage the build ourselves without further support. We also used Mattinson Associates to create a theme for the interior of the house and they were very helpful in sourcing much of the materials. All in all we are very pleased with the professional way in which Mattinson Associates helped us through the project and inspired us to create a very lovely house that even Kevin McCloud could not fail to be impressed with!”
