A house originally built in the 1950s - the client wanted to make the most of its original charm whilst giving it a new life.  

The original stair railings are a prominent feature in this design.  Steel framed windows in the style of the era gave the opportunity to showcase the geometry of the railings whilst making it practical in avoiding hot or cold air escaping through the stairwell.  

The existing kitchen, dining table and chairs were repainted, parquet was laid over the existing flooring and checkered tiles were used to create a visual boundary between the kitchen and dining space, while making it practical to clean.  

This space is a good example that good design does not need to break the bank - creating a warm, homely interior with its very individual character.
