Devon FarmhouseTransitional Hallway & Landing, Devon

Richard Downer
This Georgian property is in an outstanding location with open views over Dartmoor and the sea beyond.

Our brief for this project was to transform the property which has seen many unsympathetic alterations over the years with a new internal layout, external renovation and interior design scheme to provide a timeless home for a young family. The property required extensive remodelling both internally and externally to create a home that our clients call their “forever home”.

Our refurbishment retains and restores original features such as fireplaces and panelling while incorporating the client's personal tastes and lifestyle. More specifically a dramatic dining room, a hard working boot room and a study/DJ room were requested. The interior scheme gives a nod to the Georgian architecture while integrating the technology for today's living.

Generally throughout the house a limited materials and colour palette have been applied to give our client's the timeless, refined interior scheme they desired. Granite, reclaimed slate and washed walnut floorboards make up the key materials.

Consider the benefitsWhen asked why it’s worth beginning your project with an architect, Jane Leach says, “A good architect will ask you the right questions in order to design a project that meets your needs, as well as comply with all the latest regulations and legal requirements.“It takes on average nine years to fully qualify,” she says, “which makes an architect well placed to create all the information necessary to communicate everything to the builder.”Gavin Woodford agrees and says, “Providing your builder with as much information as possible, such as plans and specification of materials, will help them to cost your project as accurately as possible. This should in turn minimise the number of potential cost surprises as the project progresses on site.”

Conceal and revealThis is the modern equivalent of a Scooby-Doo-style trick bookcase: a restful bedroom is concealed behind a wall of books, with a hinged section opening up to reveal what’s behind. A design like this provides valuable extra shelf space that would otherwise be lost to a door, and would also work well as a way of creating separate zones in a broken-plan space.
