Description of the project

This Coach House project was at the back garden of the Listed Grade Two property which was in structurally unstable condition. N&N was approached by the architect Robert Birbeck to tender for demolishing, re-building and complete fit out of the coach house.

During the demolition process our team undertook great care to temporarily reinforce the front façade of the property and erect the working platform to allow daily access to the mews. Reclaimed bricks and lime mortar were used to reconstruct the masonry wall and matching roof tiles applied. Slim line double glazed timber windows and doors, which were made to measure, ensured a maximum use of natural day light throughout the property.

The challenge was to make sure that every centimetre turned into a clever usable space. The design had to be worked out in accordance with the limited space and not only be exclusive, but also practical. To save the space we installed an electric boiler with indirect cylinder and under floor heating.

The top floor of the coach house accommodated and open plan studio room with stylish kitchenette. Southern Yellow Pine purlins, made to the architect’s detailed specifications, were left exposed to add style and classy feel to the overall look. The ground floor accommodated a bespoke staircase, luxury shower room and spacious garage with custom-made roller door. This modern coach house is a functional and unique place.

As an additional project our client asked N&N team to totally renovate the garden. With newly added flowerbeds, rustic pergolas, a stone bake pizza oven and contemporary sand stone this garden became a stylish and enjoyable space.

Throughout the project all materials were carefully considered and the final finishes were created down to the finest specifications.
