House refurbishments, renovations, extensions and new developments
Developing or modifying a house is always a major project and investment. Sometimes it is merely a question of adding financial value to a property, but more often than not you want to create a space to live in which is designed for your unique requirements. While it needs to be a sound investment, the refurbishment, extension or development needs to realise your goals of a home that suits your way of life.
No doubt you have your ideas for style and layout. It is vital to turn these ideas into practical plans that take into account the use of space, light, access, workspace, storage, energy conservation and many other factors, including what is permitted and what is achievable within your budget.
Karenna Wilford Architects will work with you to turn your aspirations into reality. We listen carefully to make sure we fully understand your needs and then create designs that bring your ideas to life. By offering interior and furniture design as well as architecture, we get the details right so that your design fulfils your requirements.
"We recently engaged Karenna Wilford for a project that required both creativity and sensitivity to fit with the constraints of an existing build.
Karenna was, throughout the process, highly professional, proactive and creative. She also proved extremely helpful in us maintaining a positive and productive relationship with our builder and bringing the project in on budget. I can highly recommend Karenna to anyone looking for an intelligent, knowledgeable, creative and professional approach to designing a new, or enhancing an existing, property. Her attention to detail, extensive experience, and warm, approachable interpersonal style, make working with Karenna easy and enjoyable."
