We recently started work on a new project in Surrey and the clients have shown us some wonderful memorabilia from the 1960s. Their house was featured on the cover of the Daily Mail’s Book of House Plans. The book was produced as a guide to reflect the aspirations of it’s readers showing spacious and ‘contemporary’ homes. It included plans taken from exhibits shown at the Ideal Home Exhibition which budding DIYers and builders could copy from, along with tips on fireplace styles and wallpapers!

The house has been very well designed our proposal looks to respect the features of the original design by enhancing them and at the same time modernising it by bringing it into the 21st century.
