Contemporary Eco Refurbishment of a Two Bedroom Mews House with Internal Wall Insulation
Bow Tie Construction
The existing house had problems with damp and with single glazed windows, a single solid external wall, no insulation in ground floor and poor insulation in the loft, it was very cold. The layout was modified to create two equal size bedrooms with a large bathroom and open plan kitchen living room area, together with a utility room for boiler, washing and utilities.
All floors, roof and external walls – the entire building envelope – was extensively re-insulated and waterproofed. The client was very keen on having a feature piece staircase which will not obscure any sunlight coming from the new Rationale windows we fitted which were only present on the North side of the building.
Bow Tie Construction designed all upgrades to the property including some unique custom features such as a larder built into a kitchen cupboard. The client gave us free reign with colours and finishes. Brilliant white quartz worktops were selected to help to diffuse light throughout the kitchen.
We worked closely with London railings to design and fit the cantilevered oak and glass staircase.
"Rafael demonstrated a great knowledge in respect of building work and was able to draw plans and give advice regarding interior design. He was not only a competent builder but was fully involved in a complete refurbishment job from conception to realisation. The finish result was amazing and is a great demonstration of Rafael's skills."
