Jersey Design Awards 2013 ‘Commended’ – Award for best large-scale refurbishment or remodeling.
The original building (19th century house constructed by William Blampied and Alfred Le Sueur) consisted of two main storeys in a three-bay configuration, a western two-storey extension, a basement bakehouse, stores, plus an attic space and hay loft.
The design was required to provide a balance between preservation and refurbishment and extension, whilst ultimately providing a high-quality, modern-day family home.
A new East wing was built, mirroring the existing West wing to balance the building’s appearance. This housed a new kitchen and living room at ground floor, with two en suites and dressing rooms at first floor. Every care was taken to use traditional techniques and details where possible, to ensure that the resulting building appears homogenous and whole, whilst meeting contemporary thermal efficiency standards.
Externally, the works included the refurbishment of an existing outbuilding housing a new plant room and study and a new garage, swimming pool and pool house were built to improve the amenities of this substantial, luxury home.
