Alteration to existing property
Julie Richards Architecture & Design Limited
Bath House , Bath Lane , Westhorpe , Southwell , Nottinghamshire , NG25 0NS , United Kingdom
The aim of this project was to create a pocket of 21st Century living within a house from a former generation; to provide a distinct and complete opposition to the existing space. Two adjoining rooms, bathroom and water closet, were reinvented in their entirety by addressing the outdated lighting, furniture, materials and spatial layout; in order to inspire a more subdued ambience in which to relax, a luxurious haven. By realigning the division between these spaces, a series of horizontal levels were then introduced to the scheme in order to fully utilize their tall ceiling height, newly exposed. By alternately readjusting the viewpoint within each space, their particular sense of scale is emphasized through contrast.
