A thoroughly enjoyable experience! The carefully considered approach resulted in a design beyond our expectations. I have already recommended awk to friends and colleagues.
The Green House, Twickenham
A rewarding project transforming a traditional two up two down cottage it into a contemporary, light filled 3 bedroom home.
The terraced house was in need of full modernisation, a kitchen extension and a loft extension. We were also able to gain planning permission for a first floor bedroom extension. David suggested glass treads for the staircase leading to the loft to allow daylight through to the entrance hall. The effect on the space and his guests is both delightful and light full! Glass stair treads are not for the faint hearted!
Only the front wall of the house remained in place at one point – those interested in site progress can see the project on our Facebook page
Working with a passionate client to give a tired building a new lease of life is always a positive experience. In upgrading the external fabric – insulating existing walls, roofs and floors, replacing the windows and building an extension to high quality details, the building should last another 150 years and cost a great deal less to heat and light .

The hand painted kitchen was designed to be in the heart of the house, with an island unit where the family tend to gather for breakfast, coffee mornings with friends and after work meal time conversations.

This is one of our favourite - and earliest - projects. With a tight budget and a small kitchen in need of updating, Nick and Rachel wanted to create an interesting kitchen extension to their terraced Victorian property in Twickenham
The first floor was changed from a standard semi detached layout to have two large bedrooms with en-suites, one with a dressing room - a more practical and comfortable arrangement for the cosmopolitan couple.
