Artek Design House


A typical detached 1950s built house in a large plot on the edge of the city purchased for development by a senior member of a large construction company operating across the whole of England.


To meet the clients requirements and to get the very best from the house it required a complete redesign including the addition of both ground and first floor extensions. The layout was completely remodelled to improve the way the house worked from an ergonomic and layout perspective.


The house was re-wired and re-plumbed. Internal walls were removed and new openings formed. New kitchen and utility spaces were provided, new bathrooms, shower rooms, and a stunning staircase. Internal doors were replaced and wardrobes and fitted cupboards provided. 

The sliding folding doorsets were installed to create an expanse of glass overlooking and making the very best of the aspect over the large garden. This improved access and created external rooms previously not possible with the restrictive layout provided by the original house.


A new patio space was created with a sunken feel together with new paths, drive and parking provision.


On completion the house was featured in a four page article in a national magazine.
