Alexandra Park

About the project

This involved the ground floor remodelling and extension of two Victorian terraces, at the same time, but owned by two separate Clients. By undertaking the works to both properties at the same time, money was saved by sharing costs required to the foundations, party wall, roof construction and rainwater drainage works.

Both properties had the majority of the ground floor walls removed to open up the typical Victorian layout of individual rooms connected by a long corridor. Large skylights were inserted to bring daylight right into the centre of the homes.

The result has been to create large open plan spaces that connect to their garden.

Key Features

– Re-modelling a Victorian terraced house

– Extension to create an open plan kitchen/lounge/dining zone

– Retaining original Victorian features

A message from the client
“I entrusted John to radically change, open up, and bring light into our Victorian family home. Being his most fierce and harsh critic this was perhaps a most daunting task for him to undertake! He started firstly by drawing sketches and then creating a 3d model so I could visualise and understand the concept and vision of his ideas. I must say, this really did impress me. I could see what it would finally look like without any imagination needed. What he did achieve was a light, contemporary, open plan and well designed area. All great for bringing together the family, for entertaining or just chilling and lounging. We all love it. Thank you dear husband for what you achieved for our lovely family. All with a little help from me of course!” – Mrs Morris

"My wife and I had some vague ideas of what we wanted, however, the expertise, creativity, and knowledge provided by John Morris have transformed our brief into the vision of a dream home." 

- Richard Mitchell, Ealing

" It was the first time that we have used an architect and we found that the use of John's services was paid back both in terms of the savings that he was able to identify through excellent contacts and helpful advice as well as the added value for the house. It also helped us avoid making expensive mistakes through a piecemeal approach." 

- Martin & Lyndsey Done, Gunthorpe

"John Morris Architects was one of three architects we found on the internet. After a couple of meetings with each of them and John's initial concept design, we found it very easy to make our choice. I would recommend John Morris architects to anybody and would love to work with John on another job in the future." 

-Simon & Sharon Moss, Nottingham
