Fin House

Claygate, Surrey KT10








Complete refurbishment, rear extension


Interior Joinery & furniture, Bespoke lighting

A Vista through the house into the garden and beyond forms the basis of this full refurbishment & extension in Claygate in Surrey.

Our client came to us to assist them in reorganising their home, a period semi-detached workers’ house in the historic town of Claygate.

A key part of our brief was to connect the whole house with the rear garden and park beyond. Through design conversations we developed this concept, creating a continuous vista off which all the various living spaces in the house hinged.

We were keen to maximise the sense of space by connecting the rear extension with the garden by way of a corner glazed extension. The perforated brick panels modulate the view and throw patterns of light across the room.

The joinery was designed to hide the everyday life with choreographed nooks to display their art throughout the home.

The verandah, was a key feature as the clients were keen to enjoy the garden throughout the year.
