Magnolia House

About the project

The Clients bought their house in their ideal location with large gardens to the rear and front. But, the 70’s style house architecture was never their vision for their family home. They asked us to work with the existing building to give it a thorough face lift, both internally and externally, and within the Client’s budget.

We achieved this by over cladding the brick and stone envelope with through colour white render, replaced the existing PVC windows with hybrid metal/wood windows, created a zinc clad front bay window and entrance porch for kerb appeal and to give strength to the front entrance, over clad the existing chimneys with dark grey zinc and created a single level rear extension to connect the garden to the house and enable the living accommodation to be substantially expanded.

Key Features

– 70’s house remodelling and face lift

– Zinc, render and timber cladding

– Rear extension to create a open plan kitchen/living dining area

– New zinc clad feature entrance porch

"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
