Grand Designs Watch – 1950’s House South London

In a leafy suburb of London, young couple Ben and Rachel Hammond and their two children come across an ugly, inefficient and uninspiring red brick property whilst looking for the perfect plot of land. However instead of tearing it down, they decide to completely re-design it.

Retrofitting and re building the home instead of starting a fresh, which is a much harder job, than building a new home on the land. The couple look to change the whole concept of the home whilst keeping part of its structure, well three and a half walls. They are adding a double extension which wraps around the body of the home.

The inside of the home will be open plan with crisp and modern fixtures and fittings. Including modern technologies, creating an eco-friendly property. They are hoping to move into their new home in 8 months whilst they are renting. However projects never run smoothly or finish on time, will this weeks be any different.

The simplicity of the design follows into many of the rooms including the bathroom. With wonderful views out across the park behind the house, the bathroom, is a sleek and modern room. Featuring a soft moulded Royce Morgan Onyx Freestanding Bath and simple taps. The bathroom has a very fresh and light feel. These wonderful free standing baths are available on our website and are perfect if you’re looking at adding a touch of luxury to your bathroom. More items as seen in the show can be found on our Grand Designs page, and others from previous episodes.
