Squash House

Bath and North East Somerset

Project Details

£250,000 to £499,999


Designscape Architects Ltd

Toll Bridge Road , Batheaston , BATH , Somerset , BA1 7DE , United Kingdom

The existing house was developed within the walls of a former squash club, which failed to make the most of the original building. The client's brief was to remedy this to provide an environment to suit modern family living. Our design inverts the internal accommodation to provide connected living spaces with direct access onto the private external courtyards. New glazed doors slide back into the walls making full-width openings that link the internal and external areas. Bedrooms are relocated to the upper floor behind new clerestory windows with views over the city. A new open-tread oak staircase connects the three floors and forms the back-bone to the reinvented house.
