Sycamore are proud to have partnered with Mercury Engineering to deliver various commercial projects for their clients. Along with fit-outs and refurbishment, we have re-purposed existing spaces and created necessary amenities, including bathrooms, fire-rated storage facilities and even a gymnasium.
An extension wasn’t necessary here but the kitchen itself was due an overhaul. Updating the appliances and tweaking the layout slightly to improve usability made all the difference. Behind the renovation scenes we dry-lined the room to improve insulation and installed Velux roof glazing to improve natural light. Beautiful granite worktops are by Miller Brothers Stone.
The result is a slick and efficient remodel, with an abundance of storage, the addition of a breakfast bar and lighting to set it all off.
As always, our clients were delighted with the very high standard of workmanship.
Clever thinking here between our clients and their architect around reconfiguring this two bed terrace back to three. The home feels rejuvenated and everything has it’s place and purpose. They’ve achieved an overall sense of space and flow throughout and a terrific paint job brings it all together.
The box room had previously been turned into a bathroom but our clients needed the bedroom back. By stealing a little of the main bed, the architect was able to create a landing and new bathroom and return the third bedroom. Much-loved original doors were matched to retain the character. By replacing the solid wall with a bannister we opened up the landing to allow movement between the new spaces and of course we added light! Lots of light!
The new bathroom is bang up-to-date and feels spacious. A skylight is positioned over the bath so that light is diffused over the sink and mirror rather than being directly over it.
Downstairs we widened the double doorway to create a better flow from kitchen to dining room and on to the back garden. The half wall maintains a little separation without needing to remove a load bearing wall and so did not require steel works. This minor but clever alteration improves functionality and flow and generally enhances and modernises the space.
When it came time for a contemporary update to their home, our clients chose to upgrade the heating and electrics as well. A wise choice and the energy savings will pay dividends. In this instance they took it to the next level with smart integrated systems for lighting operation, zoned heating controls as well as monitoring new security cameras, installed for their safety and peace of mind. Sometimes simply relocating a doorway can make all the difference and the entrance to this home has had the full treatment with the living room door moved down the hall and a beautiful new bannister to the stairs. But it’s the new under-stairs storage working hard to improve practicalities in this space. The stylish oak handrail creates a beautiful feature, set off by the fresh finish painting of the replaced newel post, bannister, skirt, architrave and doors. This home has been given a modern makeover with fresh plaster work to remove stippled ceilings and old wallpaper. Now decorated in clean tones throughout. While installing gas for a new fire, all the radiators were replaced and a new Vogue gas condensing boiler was installed in the attic enabling the hot press to be removed from the 1st floor landing. We renovated the bathroom, incorporating this extra space vacated by the hot press and relocating the door for clearer access. This makes for a fresh space for a relaxing bath and a walk in shower separate, all tiled to the ceiling. A clever addition downstairs is the slim line Sara towel rail by Niko.
