Project Description:

 

 

It is generally accepted that historic buildings should be sympathetically evolved in line with modern living in order to attract owners who can afford, and are prepared to invest in the repairs, maintenance and conservation. Project number 222 for ArchiWest embraced exactly this and was destined to be a special one. 

 

Bradford Court is a substantial detached Edwardian house, predominantly in the Arts & Crafts style with classical elements such as ashlar quoins and dressings, and engaged porch columns. The Grade II listed house is set within acres of formal garden, paddocks, woodland, and river bank.

The Phase I project involved a comprehensive listed building application focused on a large contemporary wrap-around extension with glass and zinc roof, along with an inner courtyard conversion and glass roof to relocate a large family kitchen. The extension was designed to be as transparent as possible, maximising the light, views and forming a seamless connection to the gardens and outdoor kitchen entertaining space.

  

The works also involved vaulting ceilings, a new library, spatial reordering and remedial conservation works with Planning and Listed Building approval successfully secured in 2023. The full package of detailed design followed along with other exciting ongoing projects across the estate.
