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 flexible arrangement of spaces within a limited area, within which the various roles of city life for a bachelor were able to be played out. This could only be made possible by extending the upper level in order to create a more equal proportion of functions on both levels. The private areas constitute roughly half of the lower level, the other half being a combination of entertaining spaces with an alternative role of private study or guest space. The focal staircase leads to the upper level and roof terrace, primarily for dining and entertaining due to the flexibility of the kitchen installation.
