Life were asked to join the team of architects and builders at the early stages of this remodelling project on the bank of the Thames. The brief was to make the most of this fantastic site, updating the home and extending where possible. The house was stripped back to its bare bones, walls and stairs repositioned and an extra floor added. The exterior has been completely remodelled with new windows and cladding for a more contemporary look. The interior incorporated the clients' favourite furniture and curtains with new pieces to create a relaxing scheme which makes the most of the views. The pool house and gardens have also been updated transforming this slightly ugly duckling into a beautiful swan.
