The Knoll

About the project

My Clients bought this large site with a view to radically alter the existing bungalow to create a contemporary home for themselves.

​My concept was to open up the bungalow’s layout and to create a two storey bedroom zone with a single storey entrance hall that wraps around a new central courtyard. Circulation within the house flows around and through this courtyard to create a sense of space and volume. Day lit interiors with open flowing spaces have been created with views and links into the large mature gardens that surround the house.

​Through the use of concealed sliding doors, the layout can be changed to provide more intimate areas. At first floor level, a roof terrace has been located that creates an area that is completely concealed from the neighbouring buildings

Key Features

– Full house remodelling and extension

– Glazed central courtyard with a feature tree

– Single and double storey layout

– Double height volume to the kitchen zone

– Open plan kitchen/living/dining area

"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
