The Coronation Terrace project is unusual as it involved the re-modelling of an existing link building joining the original end-terrace villa with the stables to the rear. The existing link had been poorly extended by the addition of a modern PVC conservatory, which resulted in the bathroom and kitchen being inner rooms with no windows or natural lighting. the problems encountered are summarized by the client below.
'We bought a house with the most appalling layout imaginable: the bathroom and toilet were centrally located, the only ventilation into the living room and conservatory. We had no idea how to make this into a family living area. We got in touch with James Carvell.....by knocking through a couple of walls and placing some skylights, we now have a home that is spacious, full of light, and perfect for family life. It is important to stress how well James integrated both the practical and aesthetic aspects of the house...In brief, he did everything and more than we could have wished for'.

Working drawings and 3D CAD models provided sufficient detail to allow all parties to understand the complexities and potential pitfalls of the project. The model in particular allowed for detailed discussion with the builder before work started on site to best agree how to construct the complex roof using steel sections, and to avoid problems during construction.
the space occupied by the original kitchen was transformed into a large top-lit bathroom as part of the remodeling work. It was possible to retain some of the existing kitchen fittings (including the original Victorian cistern over the toilet). The high level void and roof lights make for a dramatic space that is well isolated from the rest of the house, providing an opportunity to relax undisturbed.
