|Project Period||10 Months|
|Type of Work||Full Reconstruction, Addition of a Brand New Basement, Extension and Fully Refurbished|
The restoration of this Victorian stucco front house in Barnes uses fragments of the original mouldings and plasterwork, but the plan was transformed by moving the staircase to the rear of the house in a new glass extension. With the addition of a new three storey side extension each floor became realigned with a new lateral axis.
The new staircase still hangs in space, but this time it is a cantilevered helical stair, made entirely from wood in a joinery tour-de-force.
The staircase won the prestigious Wood Awards small project award in 2004
