Georgian Estate

Louise Crossman Architects worked on several buildings within this Georgian country estate (see White Barn and Mews Studio) but our work to the original house focused on its renovation and remodeling.

Dated circa 1820, Grade II Listed House shows evidence of periodic development and expansion, through Georgian, Victorian and subsequent periods. The house renovation therefore acknowledged the quality and significance that each period of development had contributed to the property as a whole, while seeking to reveal again the form, detail and where possible the original features of the house's Georgian core. The clutter of piecemeal joinery, ironmongery and service installations were also simplified.

The work to the house, therefore, appropriately preserved the existing where significance was identified while taking a reflective look at previous development in order to positively resolve any compromises made by earlier development for a new generation of inhabitation.
