Abbotsford Park

Somner Macdonald Architects

Our clients could see the potential in this house from the beginning. However, the beautiful and classic proportions from the front belied the acute need for refurbishment and rejuvenation. Through a series of sketches and discussions we arrived at a design that paid homage to the original house. The result is a series of extensions to accommodate modern service requirements, to introduce more light and to create a generosity of space that was lacking in the original arrangements. High quality materials - zinc, stone, oak and aluminium - were brought together to produce something interesting and elegant.
