We’ve just posted the pre-ReDesign images of the Jennifer House project and, oh my!
This project illustrates perfectly how a typical London ‘my-house-looks-just-like-my-neighbour’s-house’ home can be morphed into a unique, modern space. With a clean, classic modern interior this home will now stand the test of time, whereas before the textured walls and ceilings and the endless sea of oak screamed of the era that the house was built in.
Needless to say, we aren’t huge fans of the typical sub-division developer’s or builder’s approach to mass market housing. Obviously there are many drivers of this approach, not the least of which is the ability to churn out relatively economical homes due to blind repetition. Sadly though, many clients that we have spoken to have said that within a few years of having a new home built they began making major changes, nullifying original cost savings.
Regardless, the Jennifer House clearly demonstrates how a fully developed design plan and a combination of cosmetic and structural changes can validate and uniquely adapt a home to reflect and inspire the home owners.
