STANLEY STREET, Southsea, Portsmouth, Hampshire
Extension & Renovation
Scheme: Extension / Client: Private / Type: Residential / Location: Southsea, Portsmouth, Hampshire
Stanley Street is an existing listed Edwardian mews building in Southsea, Portsmouth, Hampshire. The owners of this property wish to replace the rear north facing portion of the existing house with an in keeping extension but with modern contemporary interiors. The conservation policy of the street imposes strict rules on developing each of the period buildings, so our architectural design is focused on the use, function and atmosphere of the contemporary internal spaces and how these can relate to and benefit the existing property.
White painted brickwork is used for the external walls as well as a backdrop to the kitchen and dining rooms. All spaces feature bespoke joinery items such as the kitchen island unit, dining room storage wall, and bedroom dressing area.
A large glazed roof light panel brings light in above the kitchen spaces.
