About the project

Here I was asked to reinvent and extend a 70’s house located in The Park area of Nottingham.

The concept is to remove the horizontal emphasis of the windows and the typical materials used in the 70’s period. I achieved this by reorganising the window locations and by over cladding the building with modern, low maintenance materials that creates a less symmetrical appearance with strong vertical elements. The interior is also opened up to create open plan living areas that flow into each other and, importantly, connect the house to its South facing landscaped gardens via a rear single storey extension that opens up onto the garden.

Key Features

– Reinventing a typical 70’s house

– Full refurbishment and extension

– Insulated over cladding to make a warm house

– Zinc, timber and render cladding


"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
