A Georgian Home


The project originated from our client’s decision to move from the city to the countryside - to find a home with more space, a garden and direct access to the countryside for family walks.  Forehouse presented a unique opportunity to fulfil this dream and our clients fell in love with the symmetry, proportion and understated character of this wonderful Georgian house.


‘The opportunity of creating a really curious and interesting home marrying up the main house to the two wings and garden, is why we find ourselves embarking on such a project.’

Our proposals open up the rear of the property, simplify circulation and re-establish the generous proportions and order of the original house.  This is achieved through the introduction of a glazed link that connects the house, side wings and the courtyard.  A new kitchen connects the principle living spaces and acts as a transitional space between the old and new.  


The two wings are transformed through enhanced volume, exposed structure and natural light. The new spaces open-up  to a walled garden and courtyard to the south allowing this aspect and orientation to be enjoyed.  The internal spaces have been designed to accommodate home working and self-contained guest accommodation.

Our clients wanted the house to feel like a retreat for their family and friends to visit and stay.


The proposals create a warm and welcoming environment for entertaining and in parallel provide functional spaces that support our clients daily rituals.
