Lewes, East Sussex
Repurposing and extending an archetypal semi for modern living.
The ideal space for family life brings together garden, food, relaxing and play. Utility spaces are close to hand but discreet. Volumes are opened up and structure moved aside. A familiar repertoire, worked on at many Cowie Montgomery projects: this is a favourite example.
Extensions to houses can diminish the daylight and outlook that is sought. Here, specifically oriented rooflights bring sunlight and skylight into the north facing space. The precision made joinery, white floors and folding doors on to the beautiful garden maximise reflectance and sense of volume.
Cowie Montgomery worked closely with their clients to create a huge flexible space within which the elements for each function were then bespoke tailored and augmented with Gorgeous Things.
