Residential House Under £1M Design Winner
Sheree Stuart Design and Dewson Architects
Artful Tutor Revival
This project entailed the overhaul of a 1928 detached brick home. The design team all but gutted the original 2,200 sq ft structure, modernising and opening up the living spaces and adding 1,000 sq ft, but leaving the bones of the pretty Tudor-style façade intact. The design team created a home infused with vintage and colour harmonised with modern architecture.
Taking an artist’s love of battered finishes, vintage and colour, the design team, Dewson Architects Inc. and Sheree Stuart Design, created an interplay of modern design and rusticity which became a lynchpin for the relaxed, welcoming home for their client. The old-meets-new dichotomy starts with the home’s exterior. The quaint Tudor façade in front gives little indication of the broad, angular lines of the rear addition, where wall-to-wall glazing maximizes connectivity between indoors and out and creates a sense of expansiveness rare in 1920s architecture. Inside, the design team carefully avoided cluttering the modern space and balanced the palette, which shifts from area to area. Splashier colours reign in the four bedrooms and basement art studio, while the design team took a quieter approach on the main floor and instead layered in understated earth tones and evocative textures.
