The detached house was built in the 1890s but had been largely untouched since the 1940s.

The plan of the bungalow was rambling with dark corridors and small individual rooms with very little sunlight. The challenge was to rationalise the plan for a new family.

The side passage was roofed over to create a lobby with storage space and...

THE ORANGERY

[vc_row css=".vc_custom_1544180330980{padding-bottom: 47px !important;}"][vc_column][vc_column_text] As part of the initial designs for Adelaide, we had proposed a new building in the garden, separate from the house that would provide ancillary accommodation.

The concept for the design was of a...
