Project Details

The house is a mid-19th Century cottage in the Padstow Conservation Area. The external walls are of painted stone rubble and partly slate hung. The roof is a traditional Cornish Delabole slate with a hipped end to the South.


The client required an improved layout. A lot of the limited internal space was lost in circulation areas. The attic room was very small and new, breathable internal finishes were requested generally.

The main change to the layout was to consolidate two separate stairs with one main, colourful and appealing spiral stair to all three levels. This was used to bring light down into the ground floor.

The new stair was to have a new semi-glazed dormer window to the rear roof, which will allow more natural light to the interior throughout.

The renovation included new internal insulated lime render finished in a muted colour palette with splashes of bright colour in the soft furnishings. New engineered flooring throughout with new bespoke joinery items such as alcove shelving and entry cupboards were also designed.
